16: Skydiver - good to the last drop! There's nothing rational about skydiving. Call it adrenaline junkie fix or a soul seeking to be free, it takes a big step to jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane. | Skydiving
17: Dragon Boat racing team - "Puff Boat" that SPY was in didn't do well, but it was fun nevertheless. @ Sydney Corporate Game | Whatever SPY was doing, Alex would always be there to support her, cheer for her, and with a camera too.
18: It is one of Alex's favourite stories - "I proposed 3 times under the pagoda in the pouring rain, and SPY finally said YES!"
19: Taroko Gorge NP is an awe-inspiring park with marble-walled canyons, lush vegetation and cliffs so giant they block out the sky. Liwu River cuts through the centre of the gorge, forging many deep valleys, ravines and waterfalls in its course. | A Trip to Remember Alex and SPY engaged! Taroko Gorge on April 9th, 2007 | Taroko Gorge
20: While living in Fairlight, the ever changing weather of Manly harbour was evident from the harbour facing balcony, and the following rainbows were always much anticipated.

23: Alex & SPY's first house together - Zen Zoo at 1/43 George Street Pennant Hills NSW 2120 | House hunting is a bitter sweet task. It's time-consuming, exhausting and at times disheartening and frustrating. Alex & SPY finally found their love nest. It's time for a new beginning.
