Adventure, baby!

Sydney

Pretty Ballerina

These are one of the pairs of ballet flats I bought on the weekend while with Bev. The others are soft black leather with cream piping and ribbons that tie around the ankle. They arrive in two weeks. I can’t wait!

Rainy Sunday

The day didn’t go as planned. A trip to Kirribilli markets was a bit of a bust – we had French toast at a cafe that was dreadful, and the markets were full of miscellaneous crafty stuff rather than “art and design” as was advertised. I had then planned to take some arty photos of Luna Park, but down came the rain and home again we went.

I did however manage to get this one photo of Alec holding my pink umbrella for me while I took some photos so my camera wouldn’t get wet. Bless his cotton socks.

Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places – or a very different life for yourself.

Date Night

Alec and I went for dinner to a Vietnamese place called Golden Bo in Chatswood to give it a try. Delicious!


Vegetarian spring rolls.

Fried egg noodles and vegetables.

Combination meat, vegetables and rice noodles.

We then saw Knocked Up at the movies. It was pretty funny, and a lot better than I had thought it would be. I really like Katherine Heigl from Grey’s Anatomy.

Food, Fashion & Ferrets

I spent the day with Beverly shopping, playing with ferrets and eating. I have to give Bev major props for helping convince me to get the gorgeous Alannah Hill tunic.

Star was a little mental.

Misty was the chilled out one.

Beautiful cakes at Sweet Art. Happy Feet! I’ve never seen a penguin cake before.

An interesting wedding cake …

Shop window – I loved the cake in the bottom left corner that was the giant cupcake crawling with cute critters.

Ballet shoe heaven – the sale at Parisian Ballet Flats.

Beverly’s chocolate pudding dessert at Mickey’s cafe.

My caramel sundae. No wonder I feel ill right now.

Where Did The Trains Go?

Cityrail had a breakdown last night and trains stopped running to the North Shore. Alec and I made the best of the situation and had dinner at our favourite Spanish tapas restaurant, Miro. It’s named after the artist and has some nice Miro murals painted on some of the walls.

Nice interior.

Stealthy Alec shot.

The tasty food arrives.

Walking home.



You are Milk Chocolate

A total dreamer, you spend most of your time with your head in the clouds.
You often think of the future, and you are always working toward your ideal life.
Also nostalgic, you rarely forget a meaningful moment… even those from long ago.

Transformer … Robots in Disguise!

After many months of waiting, Alec and I saw Transformers this weekend. I didn’t have very high expectations of the movie, so was happy to come out of the movie wanting to see it again as soon as possible.

The CGI was fabulous – seamlessly integrated into the live action. The storyline was better than I had expected, and the writing was great – some really funny lines as well as some tributes to the original cartoon.

“I bought a car. Turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew?” Ha ha ha 🙂 Can’t wait to see it again.

I have started to go a bit crazy with my snappy cam, taking pictures in places like the movie cinema, as seen below.



IKEA

I am totally hooked on IKEA. I am transforming our junk cupboard in the hall into a shoe cupboard a la Carrie Bradshaw. I find their food somewhat disturbing though.

IKEA “chocolate”. Yeah, suuuuure it is.

IKEA $1 hotdog. Is there actually any meat in there?

Don’t do it Alec!

Flame On!


A hectic day today. An early morning climb with Mel, Vanessa’s baby shower, dropping by to see Mum and Dad, then dinner and the new Fantastic 4 movie, Rise of the Silver Surfer, with Alec.

I love superhero movies – with the exception of Spider-Man (I don’t like emo superheroes. How can they save me if they’re having a cry?). I thought the first Fantastic 4 movie was pretty average, but I really enjoyed this one. Maybe it was some much needed escapism. Whatever. I still enjoyed it immensely.

I do however have a problem with Jessica Alba having blonde hair and blue eyes. What the? If they want someone fitting that description, why don’t they hire one of the many blonde hair, blue-eyed actresses loitering around Hollywood and give them the role instead of making a dark girl blonde? So unnatural-looking.

Out of all the powers, I would like to be the human torch – getting to fly and controlling fire. In case of an apocalypse, I’d be fully sorted.
