Last night Mal invited us over for dinner for our usual catch-up with the girls and boys. Mal’s parents prepared a delicious meal for us and we spent the night catching up, eating good food and drinking expired wine (Courtesy of Helen ;D).
Our dear Mal is also turning 30 (It’s today!)
I’ve known Mal since she was 12. We became friends in 8th grade, and she was basically my bestie for most of my High School life. I’m so grateful that after all these years, we still hang out like the old days (minus the studying). Thank you Mal for being the beautiful person you are. I hope you had an amazing birthday and thanks everyone for another great evening :)
I spent most of the week sick at home…but I’ve started to feel better just in time for Somps and Dong’s 30th birthday this weekend. They held a BBQ at their place with around 30 people. It was a pretty hot day! Actually this whole weeks been super hot @.@” I can’t wait till summer’s over that’s for sure.
On our way there, we were unfortunately involved in a car accident when a car popped out of nowhere and crashed into us >.< Thankfully no one was hurt, and the damage was relatively minor. We’ll need to get the car fixed sometime next week. I’m just glad we’re all okay. It was pretty scary :(
Today is mum’s birthday. With my bro in Melbourne for Pax this weekend, Kaz and I took mum out shopping at Miranda Westfields. We had lunch at ‘Kelly’s Bar and Grill’ which was inside the shopping centre (in a very hidden spot, mind you ;D). It wasn’t too busy in here which was good for us. Food was quite tasty though that Seafood platter is probably not worth $49..just saying ;p
Today we celebrated MZ’s 30th birthday with lunch at ‘Cookies Lounge Bar’ in North Strathfield. I kept thinking we would be having cookies but its all a lieeeee ;p. I ordered a chicken schnitzel & a lemon lime bitters. It end up costing me $10 thanks to MZ’s voucher. Thanks MZ :D After lunch, we moved next door to ‘Cheeky Chocolate Room’ for some sweet drinks.
Hubby couldn’t join us since he had Tough Mudder for James’s bucks. I hope he’s having a good time :3
Today we had Floz’s 30th Birthday lunch at The Butcher’s Apprentice, with the menu from The Butcher’s Block (next door) ;D The highlight was this ginormous sized thick shake *_* Hubby and I got the Peanut Butter one with extra ice-cream and boy was that glorious :’D 10/10 would have again, hehee.
Today we hung out with our dear god sister for her 30th birthday last week :D We caught up over lunch at Sushi Tei, which also happens to have a pokestop…so naturally we had one hand throwing pokeballs. Yes, we all play the game. And yes it’s still awesome 8D
Food was delicious. My favourite was the seared scallop sushi (which isn’t pictured D:) and my lychee drink was the best.
To celebrate Rayfy’s 29th birthday, we had lunch in Meadowbank at Anema E Core, for traditional Italian wood-fired pizza! The photos all came out red because we sat outdoors under a red marquee. Luckily it was nicely heated as it was a pretty cold day! The pizza was pretty good, and the staff were super friendly and enthusiastic :D Ray also brought along a delicious Birthday cake~ nomnomnom.
This morning we had brunch at Efendy, a Turkish restaurant in Balmain for Emily’s 29th birthday :) We had the $30 breakfast sample menu which consisted of bread: pita bread, pogaca, sesame simit, walnut and sultana cake and spiced potato borek. It came with a bunch of different jams/honey/spreads served with cheese, olives, sausages and fruit. My favourite? The honey/butter jam..yum! Drinks were a choice between Turkish tea, apple tea and Turkish coffee. I went with the Turkish tea with 2 sugars so it sure felt like a one sweet breakfast. Very good service and friendly staff :)
For my bro’s birthday this year, us siblings decided to all hang out and go go karting at Eastern Creek! I’ve done it once in China before, but Kaz has absolutely no recollection of this. I’m pretty sure we DID IT TOGETHER ;p
We decided to do a 30 minute session, so I didn’t expect it to take up an entire day. Unfortunately it was a pretty long wait just to register, as they didn’t accept bookings. We arrived around 12.30pm and waited for 30 minutes. We were then told there’s no available session for us until 4.20pm. Luckily for us, Kaz and Jia live just around the corner, so we spent the next few hours there.
