Signs - Milk, Cheese, Ice-Cream and Sugar...

 For other signs from around the world please check Tom's blog:

I don't usually drink milk, but a few years ago I tried real "farm fresh" milk when we travelled from Adelaide to Victor Harbour, in South Australia. Wow, it tasted just like the milk I used to drink in my youth, the real creamy thing! 

The cheese sign was from a Cheese factory in the coastal town of Denmark, in the south of Western Australia.


Two fat cows (isn't that an hilarious name?) ice-cream is from the town of Margaret River, 270km south of Perth. 



Various quirky sugar packets from cafes -  photos taken in one of our visits to Portugal.  The top two photos are from the "Happy is" series:

Left: Happy is the one that shares happiness  /  Right: Happy is the one that drinks a coffee and eats a chocolate


Top: Happy is the one that feels butterflies in the stomach.
Bottom: Happy is the one who receives words of love.


These are the "Good morning series" with idiomatic expressions :

Top from L to R: 
Good morning to those who have the "King in their belly" = people who are arrogant/proud.
Good morning to those who "work like a moor" = work a lot, without resting.
Good morning to all Portuguese, special thanks to those that participated in this edition.
Bottom from L to R:
Good morning to those who have eyes bigger than the stomach = help themselves to too much food.
Good morning to those who have their nose up in the air =  haughty/arrogant people.
Good morning to those who dream while awake = distracted people.

These sugar packets are from "The world needs Nata"  - the Portuguese coffee shops named after the famous Portuguese tarts.

While searching for a "Santa" outfit for a Christmas in July event, where Jose would be dressing as Father Christmas, I went to the Bull Creek Shopping Centre, and when parking I noticed the Library just across from the shopping centre had a new look.

The bird and native vegetation murals on either side of the library's entrance were painted in March/April this year by Italian/Australian artist Jack Bromell.









I had last visited this shopping in March this year, when I saw this mural:

The other side of the shops has these murals:

Signs - Bohol, Philippines

For other signs from around the world please check Tom's blog.

Photos taken in the Philippines in December 2018, in the island of Bohol, the 10th largest island of the Philippines.

Its most famous attraction are The Chocolate Hills, made up of numerous mounds of brown limestone formations.

The main viewing point of the Chocolate Hills is the government owned Chocolate Hills complex in the town of Carmen, about 55km (34mi) from the capital Tagbilaran.


Chocolate Hills viewing point

The staircase to the viewing point - a lot of stairs...

Even the steps have signs

Bohol is also the home of the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary - a place devoted to saving this declining tiny species of primates. They measure about 9 to 16cm (3.5 to 6 in) excluding the tail, and weigh about 80 to 160 (2.8 to 5.8 oz).

They are nocturnal, very sensitive to noise, light and touch, which can lead them to suicide. They only produce one offspring a year with a gestation period of 180 days, their huge eyes are larger then their brain, and they can't rotate their eyes, but instead they can twist their necks 180 degrees in either direction.
