This photo bomb from the last couple of days starts with a snack after my first shift at my new internship/job at Queensland Cricketers’ Club. I found Pearl café in the Gabba and had the sourdough with olive oil before catching my bus home to Paddington.
Magazines in the bathroom at the café. My eyes were drawn to the fantastic house.
Walking past this beautiful barber shop on my way to the bus stop.
Last week, Jarryd and I were spending a lot of time with our plants preparing them for summer. We gave them new soil and fertilizer. We have new vegetables, but so far, the tomato is the only survivor. My little Chinese Money plants are looking more and more tired which is really sad. My plant babies…
Our oldest plant that started this whole plant addiction: the fig tree. It was our old housemate who left the fig tree on the veranda when she moved to Europe. It was supposed to be picked up by her friend. After many weeks, no friend showed up and I had to start giving the poor plant water. I decided to adopt the plant and that was our first plant. The smaller fig tree is originally from the bigger tree.
We also added a Sentinel to our collection. My dream is to have a really big Sentinel to attract parrots. Now, we only have bush turkeys and bin chickens in our garden.
A quick ginger beer stop before watching the Joker at the movies. Tasty ginger beer and a fantastic movie that really touched me. After the movie, I went to a friend’s place in Kangaroo Point and played games and talked for ours.
Halloween is lurking in the shadows and soon it is time for the annual Halloween party at our friend’s house. We will compete against teams in beer tasting competitions, beer pong, flip cup, etc, etc. A crazy fun night with other words! It was time for Jarryd, my two other team mates and I to meet up and discuss theme and outfits. We decided to have dinner at Fish Lane in South Bank.
Buzzing Fish Lane!
With all the lights and street art.
This night we were heading to Saccharomyces Beer Café.
At the beer café you can borrow a wide range of games and play pinball. Jarryd and I were playing four in a row while waiting for our team mates. I lost very badly… The good thing is that theme and costumes were decided and I have already managed to buy everything needed for my outfit.
I did my makeup and hair on the bedroom floor as always. Still in desperate need of a haircut ehhh.
Last Saturday started with kayaking in the Brisbane River.
The kayaking was was a Christmas gift to Jarryd and I from Jarryd’s aunt. Unfortunately, the storm was on its way but we decided to give the kayaking a go. We managed to reach the Story Bridge when it started raining. Luckily, we got new vouchers and will be going kayaking again in two weeks for free.
Good morning, tired Brisbane.
For lunch we decided to try the Vietnamese restaurant Ngon in Paddington. Super tasty food and drinks!
Like every other night, I have been stalking the neighbourhood possums. This mom has a little baby on her back and makes sure no other possum will bully it. Good mama! And this what I have been up to the last couple of days. Now it is time to heat up homemade lasagna and bake a chocolate cake. Happy Tuesday everyone!
