Christmas and pre-new year celebrations was spent with my brother's little family and his in-laws. It's a first for our family as these celebrations had always been just us. Food of course was amazing, how can it not since it is the season to EAT! Coming from a family of chefs, I only know how to eat and I don't like cooking. I can cook but I choose not to, I rather eat and eat and eat. I cannot bake! Baking is like telling me to burn down the house so it's the one thing I probably will never attempt to do ever again.
|This was Christmas dessert! Mango Pudding, Pavlova and coconut sago jelly and that bag is prawn crackers (so typical asian). Unfortunately I was starving and I completely forgot to take a photo of the actual lunch! DOH!|
|Pavlova with banana, strawberries and passionfruit|
|My own family's Christmas dinner simple and quick. Fried fish fillet, wedges, samosas and of course salad and the most random thing on the table..... Raddish Kimchi (do not ask why)|
|Caught up with a good girlfriend over cake and coffee/tea|
What? More food porn? That's right I have more food porn to share with you all. I was serious when I said it's about eating. Why not! Put on loads of kilos so I'm never going to get rid of them :(
|I seriously love this cafe and I absolutely love how they always have 4 new menu items for each season! Owned and ran by a lovely couple who obviously love food and their presentation is always so pretty!|
|Smoked Salmon crepe!|
|Spiced apple and ricotta crepes? I think that's what it was.|
|Best Summer fruit ever! MANGO!!!!!|
Now food isn't all I have to share, of course not!
Before the end of 2014, well actually before Christmas My friend Mandy and I (yes we both have the same name!) had bought tickets to Cavalia horse show at least a year in advance. We paid for expensive tickets, but they were absolutely amazing seats!
What can I say... The show is beyond breath taking and the love the horse riders/trainers have for the horses were absolutely amazing. The tricks and the story and the performances were absolutely amazing, beautiful and.... there were a couple of good look guys too (Wink wink).
If they ever come around to a place near you? You must go and watch it! I absolutely loved it and I actually wanted to see it again, but just can't find the time to go.
The tickets we bought were also horse lovers so at the end of the show we could ask one of the performers some questions and then we were allowed backstage to the stable where the horses were resting up after. All I can say is I want a Pony! Absolutely adorable!
Here is some random bits and pieces....
|They LIED! Vietnamese for dinner one night and I felt like pork, so here I was reading down the list and thinking what the heck?|
|I'm still a kid at heart...|
|You probably won't believe this but this is my first real Christmas present since at least a decade ago. My family isn't the type to really celebrate Christmas so we don't buy presents. This one was of course from my great girlfriend Rachael.|
|One part of the Christmas present. Extremely cute earrings!|
|This old dog will always be adorable even if she is moody most the time.|
|I have a problem? According to mother I have a problem! Do I really have one? No way!|
How can I not end this post with anything makeup and hair related. It wouldn't be right at all!
|My first ever Sephora product so not too sure what to expect. A very early birthday present from my cousin all the way in Melbourne.|
|Love my Lime Crime Lipsticks!|
|My ban on buying makeup brushes didn't last long when there is a sale on!|
