When Irene met Elvis

The crepe blouse was designed by Merivale for the House of Merivale label Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, in 1968. And the kangaroo skin skirt was made by Graham Edelstein in Sydney in 1968.

Irene Combe, a 17 years old Sydney model, wore this kangaroo skin miniskirt and crepe blouse when she met Elvis Presley in America. Irene found Americans were not wearing things as short. So Sydney designers and fashion houses modeled themselves on the style of swinging London, and were quick to champion the mini skirt in Australia.

This outfit was typical of young woman’s clothing. Every young woman could wear it, Because it was simple but fashion in before and now.

The powerhouse museum is very big and awesome. They have different  parts of exhibition like technologies that changed our mind, engineering excellence, game masters, the wiggles exhibition etc. Most of exhibit display in glass case, but some lighting was turn off, maybe they want to protect the exhibits, but audiences can’t see the things clearly.

Wearing mini skirt was weird before, after it became fashion, every young women want to wear skin skirt. Nowadays, we can see the short skirt or shorts everywhere. Designers made more style of this skirt or shorts.

Everyone love beautiful items of clothing, the fashion will not stop. We will  see more weird cloth, maybe you want to try later on.

这是来到悉尼的第23天,很多人问我有什么感受,不知道怎么回答。没有惊喜,兴奋,其他。这一天是在自己的计划中。这个blog很早就开了,以前的生活平淡,也不知道该记录些什么。回头看看写的那些,太幼稚了。还是隐藏了吧。

每到周末就会烦躁,室友会带很多朋友回家,乱糟糟的不喜欢。自己不知道能做什么,没有朋友,作业都写完了该怎么办。

昨天计划去教堂,没想到一天会过的如此充实。

9:30走在路上,没有人。路边有食品包装袋,易拉罐空瓶,夜生活的人留下来的。

Presbyterian Church离我只有600米,很快就到了,外部在重新装修。第一次走进正式的教堂,从楼梯走了上去,楼上两个角落是孩子们学习圣经的地方。有一老伯正准备给一个小男孩上课,允许我一起参加。老伯问我知道基督徒吗?当然,相信上帝的人就是基督徒。首先检查小男孩的homework,就是背圣经,很熟练,有种老太太念经的感觉,其实很想问他是否理解。老伯问我他背的如何,excellent。他得到了奖励一张书签,也让我选了一张。一起唱了诗歌的简谱。原来国外的简谱不是标数字,d r m f s l t。。。小男孩上完课后,下楼准备做礼拜,整个过程就是牧师念圣经,唱歌,讲解圣经,唱歌。当然没听懂多少。结束后老伯给我介绍了一位叫Angela的女生还有她的男朋友Adam,他们是local。知道我第一次来教堂,问我是否能听懂,当然很困难。于是介绍我去BOCC,Barneys overseas chineses church,写了纸条,交换了号码。回家路上还有些忐忑,有点害怕。中午回家简单的做了饭菜,吃完睡了一觉,闹钟响了就起床出发。感谢Google maps。每次出门必开地图,真的是路痴啊。。。有了地图妈妈再也不怕我迷路了。到57-61 Mountain st 花了二十多分钟。比Angela先到了,进了楼里坐在沙发上等他们。Jason过来问我第一次来吗?可以带我进去(当时还不知道他是Minister)。Angela到了之后给我介绍了好多华人,学生,上班族。有一个东北女生知道我也是中国人后想用母语交流问Angela介不介意。突然想到,那天约sunny去逛街有俩同学也参加了动不动就说中文有些不礼貌。又认识了一对新加坡couple,女生叫Hsin人超级好又漂亮,问我为什么会过来?怎么找到这边的?讲了上午的事情,还有自己不是基督徒。4:30开始讲解Matthew 28:16-20,比上午那些古文好理解一些,也就听懂60%吧。他们邀请我参加教会的晚餐味道还不错。Angela和Hsin希望我下周还能过去,maybe,如果我能提前准备好presentation。吃晚饭,说再见后就回家了,天还亮着,愉快的去coles买了一盒2L的冰淇淋。墨迹到11点,把这周的report上传了,有23%similar。直接睡觉。。。

起床后,又墨迹的写完这篇blog,做午饭。准备上课。。。
