Sunday breakfast

After church this morning, met up with Charli to go to Balaclava to try out breakfast at Las Chicas - it is supposed to be good. Sadly we didn't end up eating there because the wait was so long that they had to ask us to go elsewhere. Wonder how we would ever get to try it out since we cannot make reservations.

We had breakfast at Gattica instead, a little bit further down the street. The food tooks ages to come and was ok. Nothing really out of the ordinary.

I had pancakes with chocolate sauce, strawberries and mascarpone cheese
Charli had corncakes with eggs and bacon

Later on we went to Chapel Street and passed by a pet shop where there were cute kittens! This one was a Himalayan Birman cross.

Busy Saturday

Darlink went to Sydney on Friday for work and is spending the weekend there. I entertained myself fully for today - did baking in the morning, shopping in the afternoon and started making a stuffed bunny in the evening.

Here is the recipe I tested out from the Macro Wholefoods newsletter.

Note that this didn't have any butter or oil in it. As such, it is a little dry but the dried cherries I used (in place of cranberries) added some bursts of flavour.

Met Charli in the afternoon for a walk to Brunswick Street and ended up at Red Tongue for lunch (at 3+ after a lot of stops along the way and Charli more than $100 poorer :D).

This is what we both ordered because it sounded so good but turned out a little small - puff pastry, asparagus, smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce.

After lunch, we crossed the road to Hunter Gatherer and found that they sell vintage fabric there! Of course I got some. A stuffed bunny is in the process of being churned out as I type this.

Bobbi bunny says hello! :P

Happy Chinese New Year!

CNY is here again! Over here we haven't really felt any of the festive mood at all, unlike in Singapore where everything would have built up to somewhat of a frenzy over the past few days and people will stuff themselves silly over the next few more. When we went out this afternoon past Chinatown, there were stalls set up selling Chinese-y stuff, foodstuff and a stage for performances. But it was way too hot to be any fun. It was a scorcher of a day. On the brighter side, I have CNY goodies coming from Singapore courtesy of Charli who is bringing them from Mammo! :D

We had dinner with Johnny and his new housemate John (also). Heard firecrackers going off just now in Chinatown as well.

Here's some pig stuff that I currently have on my table.

Fleece bunny

Made a new bunny today! This was made out of fleece that I bought so that Bobbi bunny could have something to play with as well :D

A nice evening out

After 3 days of working late, we made a special effort to get to the St Kilda Beach Night Market. This week is also when the St Kilda festival is happening so I thought there might be a little more festivities there.

We bought a nice cake and a cherry tart from the Monarch cake shop (for breakfast), had dinner at Grill'd and then went to take a look at the market.

Yummy-looking cherry tart

There is a nice atmosphere at this market compared to others we have been to. There were performers, people and kids dancing to the music, people sitting on the lawns (or what was left of them) and the nice smell of hotdogs in the air. As the weather the past few days has been quite cool, it made for a really lovely stroll around.

Stalls there have a hippie feel to them - vintage clothing, handmade jewellery, leather goods, craft items, bags, tie-dyed stuff etc. There was even a drink stall selling chai!

I got a nice skirt/top/dress for $30.
