out and about

sunday roundup

Remember part one of the broken phone saga? Well after what seemed like forever, I’m happy to announce that I finally replaced it recently! I decided to go with the Nexus 5, and besides being ecstatic that I’m no longer phoneless I’m really liking it so far. Surprisingly the camera’s pretty decent, despite a lot of reviews I read saying otherwise. In fact, I may have become more snap happy than I was before, if that’s even possible… Anyway, here’s a quick look at what I’ve been up to lately:

      

Flowers and the QVB Christmas tree in all its glory. With less than twelve days to go I can definitely feel the festive spirit in the air, but just between you and me? My family hasn’t even gotten around to putting up our tree yet! We should probably get on that soon…

      

On one occasion my friends and I had the brilliant idea of going bike riding, and to our amusement the park looked like it was stuck in autumn… in the middle of November. Anyway, if I gleaned anything from the experience it’s that tandem biking is freaking hard. I tip my hat to anyone who can actually coordinate on those things!

      

So while I’m often caught drooling over inner city eateries (check out Sydney.com’s restaurant page for an extensive list!) it’s a lot more convenient for me to cook at home or try out local places for a change. Just the other day I had dinner at a small Thai restaurant, which had some really good tom yum soup, fried rice and papaya salad, just to name a few. Shame I didn’t get many decent pictures though, apparently my family doesn’t know the meaning of waiting to take photos before eating…

Hyde Park before the stormy weather kicked in. Anyway, in case you haven’t noticed I’m stuck in Sydney for the holidays! While I love my hometown, I’m kinda sad that I’m the only person I know not travelling overseas in the coming months. Nevertheless, that doesn’t stop me from clicking through sites like Webjet for cheap flights to my dream destinations, no matter how far-fetched. I can’t be the only person that does that, right? Anyway, I hope you’re having a great weekend!
