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.

Somps’ 31st Birthday Lunch

30th January 2018

Dear Chibi,

Last Sunday over the long weekend, we had a get together for Sompies’ 31st birthday. Lunch was at Al Aseel in Greenacre, where we had lots of meat and garlic sauce… in my case, it was lots and lots of onions ^.^”

We ordered way too much food, but I gotta say my side of the table were much bigger eaters XD Hubby, Rayfy, Steffi and I just kept going…. It was a satisfying meal!

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
