motorbike/becak horror smash – Siying saves unborn child

Jogja was full of excitement and danger, and one night Siying took the full brunt. On the way to the opening, happily meandering down Jalan Suryodiningratan with our becak driver, a motorbike decided to overtake coming the other way. unfortunately he was going a little fast, and didn’t make it back in time, and so hit the side of our becak. Siying’s arm was caught in the crossfire and the motorbike driver crashed and rolled. Good on you Siying, saving Hayley and the unborn… disaster 3 diverted.

Sebagai titik awal untuk ‘purbakala’ Aku menjelajahi album foto keluarga

Setelah pemeriksaan dekat dingin aku punya kesadaran bahwa saya anggota keluarga gambar Aborigin telah dimanipulasi oleh fotografer / printer, sehingga mereka mereka benar-benar tampak lebih putih (dibandingkan dengan pasangan kulit putih!)

Begitu banyak sehingga, bahwa mereka benar-benar tampak seperti hantu 



Haberfield Saga

Last Windjammer780” But they did reach the coast safely and were able to get passage on a windjammer about to sail for the colony of New South Wales. The story goes that Patrick feared the English were so close to finding him, that he and Maria ran up the gangplank, dropped the baby and broke his legs. The story also goes that, on the long and difficult voyage, the baby got rickets. Whether or not these stories are true, Richard survived the trauma. ‘ He was a sturdy little boy’. Quite…..”
