A day with Annie

What an amazing weather we are having these past two days, I really hope that it stays put. With all the sunshine and warm weather it was quite naturally that I ventured outside to enjoy the day.

Around lunch time I went to David Jones to be pampered by a make-up artist in gold and green.

I met up with Annie to spend the day having lots of fun, since her Birthday was coming up.

We had a look around the QVB and Annie got some adorable rings. I have the same ones. :)

People took advantage of the weather and some couples were lucky to have this as their day...

Annie and me decided to change the setting from high-rised skyscrapers to China Town.

As we were hungry, a stop at a Taiwanese restaurant was necessary. I had a steamed veg bun.

While Annie had a soy bean jelly with red-beans. It tasted better than what it looks like.

We also shared a Leek Cake, which was just delicious.

Afterwards we headed to Paddy's Market to find some bargains.

Once we had eased our hearts with shopping we took the bus to Circular Quay.

Radiance of the Sea, a massive cruise ship, took up half of the harbour and was very impressive.

Since we still had plenty of time before heading off to the restaurant that was booked...

...we sat down to enjoy the warmth of the sun and the fresh sea breeze. Life was good.

A 6 รณ clock we joined a company of Annie's friends and went to Appetito.

We ordered 3 different pizzas and some amazing Ciabatta with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Combining great food and interesting conversation about the present and the future was a great way to end a beautiful evening with wonderful company.

Sydney Food Festival

After a long week of studying I felt I deserved to give myself a treat and I was just eager to get out to get some photos. Together with Annie and the Chopstick Society, we headed to the Night Noodle Markets during the Sydney Food Festival.

Hide Park was beautifully decorated and the entire area was filled with people.

After having looked around in the stall, I decided to have Malaysian noodles with egg & vegetables.

I shared a not so very authentic Burek. My mum's is 100 times better.

However, the Gozleme was pretty good. Good thing to cook when out of time.

The entire group had all kinds of yummy food. Ranging from dumplings to mini-pancakes.

We realised that we made a wise choice by sitting under a tree as the rain came down like crazy.

Annie and me had a nice chat about what we would do the next day.

Once everybody had finished we went to the Sheraton hotel nearby.

We were greeted by plenty of happy faces and we pretty much took up the entire hotel. Hah!

What better way to end this fabulous evening than to devour a heavenly delicious mouth-watering chocolate dessert that just melted in your mouth...I just about died with every single bite I took.
