Pics, pics, pics!

Haven't been blogging much lately and thought I'll do a photoblog (or is it photolog? No idea!) to show my days in Brisbane. And no, the cyclone in Cairns does not affect me and I am still in the living world.

Warning: The following may contain materials not suitable for the hungry. View discretion is advised.

I moved to a new place that had my friend wondering if it was a bangalow.

View from the balcony... Brisbane river!

Dining area with a kitchen table that can be used for cooking shows! And a flowerfied housemate because I don't want to die.

Did I mention that we are preparing for WWIII?

I tried to have 'ink' and dragged abovementioned flowerfied housemate with me to the museum. We caught the 'Regarding Retro' exhibition. After all, it's free! Free = good = :DDDD

Nice lobby(?)

I like this work by Joan Ross. It's titled 'Do I look alright in this?' Such a girly question! Click on the picture to see the intricate needlework of the dress she's wearing. I believe it's made of hair. It would be interesting to make one from blonde hair contrasted against a black background. Hmm...

I was promptly inspired and whipped out my retro sheets. The red thing is what they call the 'Bed Buddy' here - the closest thing to a bolster.

Also went for the St. Patrick's Day parade in the city that celebrates the Irish heritage. Quite disappointed because I had expected it to be at least of the 'Chingay' standard. Zzzz... Well... It's free...

About the most interesting thing on display.

Now for the food... Are you ready?

Pizza seems to be popular this semester.

1m of it to be exact. :P

With potatoes

With shrimps

And taiwanese delights as well!

A Taiwan-style breakfast with the most delicious 'tau gua' (the plate of black beancurd) and 'chong you bing' (triangular pastry)!

凉面好好吃! (Taiwanese cold noodles)

But home-cooked food beat them all!

Kelly's delicious pasta!

Entrée done to the max! Bloody Mary oyster shot, garlic bread, wasabi prawn and baked cheese mushroom! Wash it all down with a great bottle of girly, fruity shiraz!

Main of rump steak marinated in herbs. Yum!

End the sweet, sweet meal with desserts!

Sticky date pudding with caramel sauce

Hot fudge brownie with fudge sauce

Lastly, you cannot forget the 'me-centered' photo!

Don't worry about cutting off faces of prettier girls! :P
