Vivid Sydney @ The Royal Botanic Garden

29th May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Last night Marcus, Emily and I hung out after work to see the Vivid displays around Circular Quay. It happened to be International Burger Day so we end up dining at Maccas’ and claiming our free Big Mac, woo XD.

There’s usually a ton of people at Vivid, but it really made a difference coming on a Monday night. There were still people, but it wasn’t crazy packed where you felt like you couldn’t move.

Here are some pics I snapped along the way :D The photos aren’t great quality, but it’s about experiencing it in person…right?? XD (I didn’t feel like bringing my camera ^^”)

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie animation. There was even a little booth selling merch XD

Newway & Alex’s DIY Pizza Lunch

27th May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Today Newway and Alex invited us over for a fun afternoon session of DIY Pizza :D! I arrived around noon and got really excited upon seeing all the ingredients laid out on the table. So much prep work had been done!

So, making the pizza was pretty easy seeing as Newway already did all the hard work. Firstly we spread the tomato pizza base over Lebanese bread and simply topped it up with whatever we liked. I’m not a vegetarian, but I’m always drawn to vegetarian pizzas because of its vibrant colours. I love pineapples on pizzas…mmm. Once that’s done, Newway would pop it into the oven and TADA. Magic happens.

Carzy is all about the cheese. HER WHOLE PIZZA HAD A BILLION LAYERS. We laughed, and joked and teased. Then her pizza came out perfectly. We all started adding more cheese, lol.

Honestly, I was really impressed by how well the pizzas turned out. It actually looks legit and tastes really good!

After our pizza fun, we had home made Panna Cotta for dessert. Oh yummy. I need to make this *_*

Thank you again Newlex for being such amazing hosts and having us over. I had so much fun today!

I wish Hubby was here. I know he would have loved it :)

Turning 31 ~ Birthday Weekend in Bundeena

22nd May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Before I start jotting down my weekend adventures, I want to say a big Happy Birthday to my twinbee Kaz, who spent her birthday in Kangaroo Valley :D (She’s 5 minutes older, which I’m sure you could tell ;D)

One of the great things about having your birthday land on a Monday is being able to turn a single day affair into a weekend of celebrations. (I’m totally not complaining!) In fact, I was enjoying it so much I didn’t want it to end. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it was my birthday every day? “Haha, you wish!” I hear you saying ;D Of course, I’m just being greedy. I know Hubby spoils me every single day :3

First thing on the menu was Hubby’s breakfast~ katsu sando! :D How cute is this little sandwich? It was his first time making it, and it was a delight ^^

Before we made our way to Bundeena, we stopped by this neat little cafe called Elatte Cafe. Oh my, the food is totally made for Instagram. How pretty is that pancake?? *drools* Taste did not disappoint either. So yummy!

When we arrived at the Royal National Park, we dropped by our little shack where we’d be spending the night. It has a fully equipped kitchen but the outdoor bath tub was our favourite feature ^.^

Me & Hubby’s Joint Korean BBQ Birthday Dinner

21st May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Korean BBQ Birthday Dinner

Guess who’s over 30? 8D My birthday weekend begun on Saturday night with Korean BBQ @ O Bal Tan with the Cofa gang. It’s been a while since we’ve hung out with everyone, but birthdays bring us together ;D

Strawberry Watermelon Birthday Cake

~Mesmerizing~  *.*

Food was pretty good and super filling! I didn’t pay too much attention to what meat I was eating, I just had whatever Hubby/Emily/MZ put on my plate (which was plenty!) XD Here are some snaps from the night (Click on the photo for a larger view)

The guys got us a chopping board I mean, cheese serving board and a gift voucher for the Cheese & Wine Room. I will definitely blog the experience when we try it out some time ^_^ Thanks everyone!

After the meal, it was time for cake & birthday wish-making :D

Hubby’s Birthday at the Blue Mountains

15th May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Last Friday I celebrated Hubby’s 31st birthday over in the Blue Mountains. It happened to be really cold and windy that day (60km/h at 4 degrees) but we were prepared with our winter gear XD Upon arriving at Katoomba, we even got a glimpse of falling snow :D Ah, lucky!

We stopped by ‘Mountain High Pies’ for breakfast. The one pictured above is the ‘big breakfast pie’ which consisted of poached egg, bacon, sausage, home-made baked beans and chorizo topped with hollandaise sauce. What an appropriate name XD.

Grand Canyon Walking Track

We decided to go on the 6km Grand Canyon Walking Track since we haven’t been before. All up it took us 4 hours to complete including a break (with me walking at a granny pace ;D). The track was really pleasant and actually quite nice.

Twins day out~ The Grounds of the City

25th April 2018

Dear Chibi,

On Saturday Kaz and I did some shopping around the city (and raid, hehe) before settling down at The Grounds of the City for lunch. The place was pretty busy, but we made a reservation so were seated pretty quickly.

 

The room was cosy and nicely decorated, giving off an old-school 1920’s vibe.

11 Year Anniversary and the bet that started it all

15th April 2018

11 Year Anniversary

Dear Chibi,

11 years ago, Jacky took me out for dinner at Outback Steakhouse for losing in an art challenge. For one of our art class projects in Uni we had to paint an object in 50 different ways (or was it 30?). Jacky and I decided to have a bet- the one who finishes first would owe the other person steak. When Jacky excitedly texted me to say he had finished, I told him he was too late, and that I already beat him. It took him close to 2 years to finally get me that steak, but he did.

It was that night that he asked me to be his girlfriend.
