Yup.. time is so fast and soon we are goimg to celebrate the Melbourne Cup 2009 this coming November
It’s the greatest day on the Australian sporting and social calendar – the one day when everyone, young and old, stops to partake in this unique cultural tradition.
But while Australians all over the continent take part in the celebrations, nothing compares with being there to witness another chapter in this enduring story.
The $5.65 million Emirates Melbourne Cup is the richest handicap race in the world and the centrepiece of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Here in OZ it is well celebrated by dressing up and looking good for the races ,, Last year my hubby and I were invited to a Melbourne cup luncheon party at Sydney ,, it was the time of the year when people are dressed up nicely .. ladies with their hats or facinator and gentelemen with their tuxedo ..... It was fun, with nice food and wine and just to be fancy for a day...
But I dont know if we are going out this year,,, I am busy packing up and getting ready to move house...
And look at those daggy winter boots!!!!!!!! Thats' quite FANCY for me!!!!
and tons of packing to do!!!!!
HELP!!!!!!!! I need reinforcement!!!!!!
