I wanted to tell you guys about my wonderful trip to Sydney, Australia with my fabulous friends!
I accompanied my line sister Catarah and soror Shoneji, two wonderful southern girls, who were guests on The Today Show with Natalia in Australia. They went from baking out of their house to being Cupcake Wars winners, Dr. Oz show regulars, LA Sugar stars On E! and international celebrity baking chefs worldwide on the Cake Bake and Sweets Show in Syndey, Australia.
The people here are stopping them and asking for photos, like the celebrities I know they have always been. It’s a truly amazing to have a front row seat to their journey. Won’t He do it? God always gives exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think!
From my trip to Australia, I learned so much about the world outside of America and it changed me for the better. I learned about the strength of the Australian Aboriginals, the original, indigenous people to Australia. They call themselves “Black Fellow”. I was surprised that their rich history was not common knowledge, because it should be. I loved that I was able to absorb their culture and share laughs with our Aboriginal Cousins!
When the Europeans came to Australia in the late 1700s, many of the Aboriginals were murdered, stripped of their culture, and treated like animals. So many died from diseases that the Europeans brought over. Then in the 19th century during the Gold Rush, everyone wanted their land. All of the Aboriginals couldn’t be murdered so during the 1930s through 1950s (which is rather recent) their babies were being stolen and placed into orphanage to remove them from their culture. The Europeans found that when they mixed their genes, they were not as strong as the main African gene so a bi-racial aboriginal may end up with blonde hair and blue eyes. With these, they tried to integrate, but instead, a majority of bi-racial children usually have dark features like dark hair and dark eyes. Even after all of these setbacks, the aboriginals still remained. A true testament of strength and courage.
Another one of one of my favorite experiences was feeding the baby kangaroos and wallabies…as I entered the wildlife center I thought the animals would be in cages like American zoos, well the koalas were hanging on the trees, the birds were flying freely and animals were walking around, only few were caged. When I first started feeding I got scared because over time so many animals were surrounding me, the tour guide said Miss Arian you can’t panic because they will feel the energy, he said it’s ok, I said after this you just get me out of here…lol, but I calmed down and got it under control.
