Ramen and Chocolate

3rd June 2017

Dear Chibi,

June is upon us..and so is winter. It always amuses me how much the temperature seems to change the moment a new season hits. I’ve already taken out my jackets, gloves, scarves and electric blanket :’D The only thing left is a beanie and I don’t think there’s much else I can wear on top…

I’ve also caught up with latest Game of Thrones. Thankfully the wait isn’t too long till the new season :D I didn’t think I would be watching this, but here I am… 6 seasons in and excited for what’s next! In the meantime, we’re back to watching Better Call Saul season 3. Gus is here!!

Birthday at The Grounds

28th May 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today I got to hang out with my sisters at The Grounds of Alexandria. Kat treated Kaz and I to lunch at The Potting Shed~ our last birthday outting for the year. Last time I was here I ordered the cheese burger so I wanted to try something different. I end up going for the ‘Braised Rabbit and Fresh Egg Tagliatelle’..I know, weird choice…. braised rabbit?? Not long after I ordered it, I started to get nervous about the idea. Oh god please taste normal ^^” Well, thankfully it just tasted like braised beef in a tomato base sauce.

After our meal, we browsed around and checked out the markets & farm animals. This place looks amaziiinnggg. The flowers are gorgeous too.

Our joint 30th Birthday Dinner

Tonight Hubby and I celebrated our 30th birthday with the uni guys at Rosan Japanese Cuisine, Darlinghurst. We picked this restaurant because it was nice and intimate and the menu looked pretty good ~It did not disappoint! :) Ah, the sushi was especially oishii! :D

Winter is coming..!

16th May 2017

Dear Chibi,

Last Saturday Hubby and I went up to Mt Wilson to see the colours of Autumn. Prime time would’ve been early April, but there’s something charming about leaves falling to the ground as well (as long as it’s not in your backyard, then there’s work to do! ;D)

We didn’t get to spend a lot of time here, but it was fun :) Next time we’ll bring a DSLR, hehe.

Hubby’s 30th Birthday Sushi Challenge!

14th May 2017

Dear Chibi,

Last Thursday Hubby officially joined the 30s club! I asked him how he felt about it, and his response was basically “I felt 30 when I turned 29” XD Well Mr Felt-like-30-for-awhile, time to make you feel like a kid again :D For his birthday, Hubby wanted to do something simple & relatively low key. He also likes to watch strangers eat massive amounts of food on Youtube. So what better excuse to do something crazy & fun like eating a whole platter of sushi and filming it? 8D

We ordered this party platter from our local Japanese restaurant, which is a combination of rolls & nigiri. It has 45 pieces for 4-6 people. Now don’t let these pictures fool you, it’s a lot bigger (and heavier) than it appears! We didn’t expect much from this place, but holy moly was this good :O! Everything was so fresh! I had one of each sushi and was basically done after 11 pieces XD Hubby soldiered on bravely :’D

Watch Hubby demolish this platter in this fun short video:

Annnd…..MISSION COMPLETE!! Poor Hubby had crazy food coma afterwards lol

Seeing the Sunrise

16th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

For our 10 year anniversary, Hubby and I got up nice and early to watch the sunrise together :3 We’ve never actually done this before with just the two of us (sounds crazy, right?) This just shows that no matter how long you’ve been with someone, there’s always new experiences and beautiful memories to be made. So much is waiting for us :)
