The Terror Is Back!

It has been about a week since the annoying boyfriend is back. What greeted me placed a huge smile on my face.

Seriously, what is not to love about Zumbo?

Friday saw us at Wild Honey for dinner because I had such a fantastic experience the first time, and I wanted to share the awesomeness with NJ4.

Banoffee Brulee

English - The Classic Full Breakfast

To add on to the joy, Baby and Junior Meh's family expanded!

Now there's Big Meh, Junior Meh and 2 Baby Meh!

The Last Of Sydney - 16-18 July 2010

16 July

This was the day we had sweet and savoury treats, coupled with beautiful sea view and much fun frolicking around.

Upon recommendations and raves from people all around, breakfast found us at Bourke Street Bakery.

Of the whole lot, the lemon tart (bottom right) was my favourite because the zest from the lemon flavour was so intensely delightful!

We popped by Eastgardens for a little bit before we met up with another couple to go to Balmain for... ADRIANO ZUMBO!!! We queued for around half an hour before I got my box of expensive-but-super-worth-every-single-cent pastries!

And then just around the corner from Adriano Zumbo, we spotted a very cute cupcake place so in we went, and out with came with more happy looking treats!

The happy food hype was followed with happy view and crazy fun at the quieter side of Coogee Beach.

And we ended our day with a beautiful sunset view from a quiet neighbourhood that was on slightly higher grounds.

Awesome view...

17 July

We did some exercise on the second last day of my stay in Sydney by doing the Coastal Walk. We took a bus to Bondi where we started the trail which stretched from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach which took us about 2 hours to complete. Weather was absolutely perfect for such a walk as it wasn't too cold that morning.

The various pitstops along the route of the Coastal Walk.

And we finally reached Coogee Beach after about 2 hours!

We were famished from the walk and so we went to search for this place that Debs recommended for their awesome smoothies.

The Banana Smoothie was really very good! Thick, creamy, and very delightful! The Turkey sandwich (I think), fared pretty well too!

So the rest of the day was spent bumming around I think. Have no pictures to remind me of what we did for the rest of the day.

18 July

Pack pack pack.

Bye baby, bye Sydney!

Melbourne - 15 July 2010

The last day in Melbourne was simply a series of food trail before we went back to Sydney.

Popped by Queen Victoria Market for a bit, where we had donuts from the donut van which was sugar coated AND had jam filling! The donuts were doubly sinful but seriously very satisfying for it's richness!

Right after the donuts, NJ4 mentioned of a breakfast place just a few steps away where his Dad love the breakfast sets, so we went there for breakfast!

Oh my, the (something) breakfast set that NJ4 had was really very nom, and my Spinach Quiche was so good!

We left Queen Victoria Market shortly after and went back to town for a last walk around. Before I went to Sydney and Melbourne, I did some homework of where to get good nomnoms, and I read up on this place selling various churros flavours, so we went in search for it!

I have to say, I was disappointed. The flavoured churros were cold and hard. We should have ordered the original ones with caramel sauce instead. We tried the samples they gave out, it was GOOD!

After the churros, we went back to our hotel to pack up and headed back to Sydney, where we had dinner at Na Bangkok!

And that's it, abrupt ending right here. =)

First Time Ever

On Deepavali, I punched an Indian man. No, I am not crazy neither am I a violent person.

As I was exiting the NEL train at Dhoby Ghaut, someone patted my ass. My mind worked so hard and fast and I had thoughts that toggled between 'pretend nothing happened' and 'give that asshole a piece of my mind'. The little chilli padi in me chose the latter, and so I turned around, saw only one Indian man in the sea of crowd, and threw a hard punch in his arm.

The Indian man looked at me with total shock in his face, and for a split second I thought I punched the wrong person. But he quickly looked away and took off, so that confirmed he was the culprit.

Thinking back, I should have aimed my punch in his face instead. Too bad that he chose the wrong target and got punched on Deepavali.

After 3.5 Years

I've finally gotten a new laptop to replace my current laptop that served me well for so long. My current laptop is my first laptop and I still love it very much, but an upgrade is needed.


The classy look of my Envy 14 Beat is undeniably pretty. =D
