on our way to southbank the sun finally shines through the window in the train we can feel a bit warm.
arrived early 10:10, people start arriving mostly families....lots of kids.....
samantha cant wait for to get in the cold water....its cold but once your in it and you soak your whole body you feel warm.
glad i brought with us sam's orange swimming float,she keeps on moving in the water and she cant stay in one spot but needs to explore the whole swimming pool and the fake beach.
southbank water park is just so perfect and nice for the family ....it has kids area fountains, water splash, and so on...the fake beach has a kids area too.....and they also had adult swim pool but i didnt get the chance to transfer and move our stuff ,,,not easy being alone with a very active child.....
samantha had a great time i called it "splash birthday date" i let her swim for as long as she wanted till she gets out the water and ask to cover her she's so cold...hehehehe....(dah lagi ka undang lagi)
we had change and grab some ice cream of course sam had her favorite rainbow.
then we had chinese food for lunch and gawd its so yakky....the meat is like raw and the sweet and sour sauce is like off......
anyway we had a great time - i got a unperfect tan and sam got a sunburn (poor thing)
after all i still manage to take photos..not really good one but i reckon its best.....

Selecting the right sport shoes
The most important piece of equipment for any physical activity is, undeniably, the shoe. A
comfortable sport shoe can make your experience much more enjoyable.
A shoe that doesn’t fit properly or that is ill-suited for your particular type of physical activity
can harm the back, hips, knees and ankles.
It’s important to realize that 25 percent of the population has some type of foot problem that
requires special shoes, and that women experience four times the number of foot problems than men.
Therefore, it’s important to select a shoe based on the morphology of one’s foot.
A person’s foot shape is generally classified among three categories:
1- a flat foot (no arch)
2- a normal foot
3- a foot with a pronounced arch
Each type of foot requires a different type of shoe. A flat foot needs strong support to
accommodate lateral movements. For normal feet, it recommend a shoe that offers good stability.
Finally, to opt for a shoe with excellent cushioning for a foot with a pronounced arch.
Its always adviseable people to buy their sport shoes at specialty stores (e.g. Sports Experts, SAIL,
etc.) and to particularly avoid boutiques selling trendy shoes, as these are completely unsuitable for
sports activities. Very often, these shoes don’t offer good support and have a heel that’s too high (the
heel of a sneaker should never exceed one inch). What’s more, salespersons who work in sporting
goods stores are generally better-equipped to give you good advice. A qualified salesperson will ask
you to walk nearby in order to examine your gait and then determine your specific needs according to
your foot morphology. When it’s time to go shopping, bring along an old shoe so that the clerk can
examine its particular wear pattern.
Tips for buying shoes
1- Shop in the late afternoon, as feet swell during the day. This way, you can ensure that your new
shoes won’t be too tight.
2- Determine your foot morphology in advance so that you can inform the salesperson.
3- If you wear ortheses, bring them with you to see whether they fit your new shoes.
4- Try on your sneakers with the type of socks you normally wear.
5- Select an athletic shoe that’s a half-size bigger than your dress shoe. Another indicator to help
you find the right size: the width of your thumb should fit between the end of your big toe and
that of the shoe.
6- Try on both shoes and lace them up completely. We often have one foot that’s slightly bigger
than the other. Choose the size that fits the larger foot best.
7- Walk or jog in the store, or reproduce the same movements you normally perform when you
exercise; this will help you determine how the shoe will support your movements. As well, try
to walk on different surfaces (e.g. carpet, wood floor, etc.).
8- Spread out the toes to verify whether the width of the shoe is appropriate for your foot size.
9- Make sure that your heel stays in place while you walk in order to minimize friction and,
consequently, blisters.
10- See to it that you can easily bend your toes, since the shoe sole must be flexible enough to allow
a proper extension of the foot while walking.
You should be prepared to pay between $100 and $150 for good-quality athletic shoes. It is also
recommended that you replace your pair every 500 kilometres, or every six months, if you regularly
engage in physical activity.
Among the more notable brands, we have New Balance, Asics, Nike Air, Brooks and Ryka.
Ryka is a sneaker brand made by women for women, so it’s well-suited for our needs. Among the
other choices for outdoor shoes, Merrell and Salomon are also good brands.
There’s a shoe for every activity
For every type of athlete and category of physical activity, there are certain features to look for
when picking the right shoe. Here are some guidelines:
For the casual sportswoman who practices several different sports, we recommended that you opt for
a cross-training shoe. This type of shoe offers good support and absorbs shock well, but is generally a
little heavier.
For the dedicated walker, we recommend a shoe specifically designed for walking; such a shoe will be
lighter than a cross-trainer. The upper of the shoe is selected according to one’s foot shape.
For the runner or jogger, the prime consideration should be shock absorption in order to avoid back
and knee injury.
For the aerobics fan, shock absorption should also be taken into account, with an added emphasis on
higher ankle support to avoid sprains during lateral movements. As well, the preference here is for a
light shoe.
For the racquet sport enthusiast (tennis, squash, racquetball), the shoe should be lower and more rigid
with a durable, shock-absorbent sole.
The difference between indoor and outdoor shoes often focuses on the sole’s flex grooves. An
outdoor shoe should have deeper flex grooves to maximize traction, while an indoor shoe will have a
smoother sole.
More and more, athletic shoes are arranged in sporting goods stores according to the type of
physical activity. This makes it easier to select the shoe that’s right for us.
Let’s start off on the right foot........P.S I had this puma cross trainer and it cause me sore swollen foot.....now im using nike air running when i jog in the treadmill which is really good and extra cushion.

QBE Riverfire

QBE Riverfire returns to the skies over Brisbane as the city unites to welcome Riverfestival 2008!

Featuring Brisbane’s biggest and most spectacular fireworks display, QBE Riverfire transforms our city into a massive celebration, as hundreds of thousands of people pack the banks of the Brisbane River and come together in backyards across the suburbs.

Eyes are riveted to the sky, while feet are tapping on the ground during the stunning choreographed fireworks display, set to the pumping QBE Riverfire 2008 soundtrack from Triple M 104.5FM and all captured live on Channel Seven’s special broadcast from 6.30pm. And then, the ultimate crowd pleaser as the RAAF F1-11* strike jets sweep low over the city before performing their ‘dump and burn’.

The QBE Riverfire party sparks into action well before dark, with plenty to see for people arriving early to claim the best vantage points. The Australian Defence Force flies the flag high with a fantastic Open Day program at South Bank, including military aircraft, showcase drills and live music, before taking to the skies from 5pm with a dazzling display by the gravity-defying Roulettes*.

When

7pm – 7.30pm

Roulettes* aerial show from 5pm
