three little pigs in the Easter Show

Laurent and I visited Sydney Royal Easter Show, and we decided to get to the showbag section the last thing (so we don't have to carry the showbags with us for all day), and that was a huge mistake.

A lot of good showbags were sold out (for the day) when we arrived there. I guess it was the Easter Show that I bought the least showbags. It's not just just the ones I wanted were sold out, I also noticed that the quality and value have been dropping.

(photos follow...)

Instead of seeing horses, cows, and other farm animals, we decided to spent additional time in the cute animal section - Pork Lane.
Pigs look cute, but they are a bit smelly (despite the very regular cleaning at the show). Also, they do nothing else besides eat or sleep.

And we all know the famous Three Little Pigs story. The first pig builds a house of straw.

The second and third pigs build a house of sticks and bricks.

Somehow, all three little pigs like to stay in front of the brick house.

Don't worry, they are all very healthy. They don't have flu.

And speaking of pigs, how can we forget the famous pig named Bruce who made the headline in 2008.

However, in the remote village they were scrubbed everyday by the "scrubber chickens", brought in on the Donkey Express. They were privileged animals in the remote village.

That was very true. Don't we all miss that good old times?
