We went to visit the City Botanic Garden and saw some beautiful flowers. Everyone knows I’m a sucker for flora pictures.

Photo #141: Self Photoshoot

July 19, 2012

My brother decided to ‘borrow’ my camera today and take 30+ pictures of himself with random items in my house. It was only appropriate that I choose one of the series as my photo of the day.

Here’s the least inappropriate/pedophilic-looking one:

FADU: Eating Foods!

July 10, 2012

My mom made my first food request: Bun Rieu! I absolutely love this Viet dish but have never dared to make it – was delicious!

Our bowls are too small for man-servings, so pots and mixing bowls it is!

Our family’s first time trying Roo burgers! Quite delicious!

FADU: South Bank and Yumminess!

July 8, 2012

Woke up to the wonderful smell of pan fried dumplings – thank you mommy for your jet lag and waking up at 4am to make us food!

Family breakfast complete with pyjamas and bed hair

We headed down to the CBD (downtown) for a stroll and to visit souvenir shops. A bed of furries – woo hoo!

My mom really liked the trees on Adelaide St

Trying not to laugh wearing a hat from the souvenir shop. Then getting a work out pushing big metallic spheres around.

We then walked over the bridge to visit South Bank

Exact tool my brother needs to work on his bike at home is available at the Community Bike Repair Station. He wishes there was one in our neighbourhood back home! And mom holding up the Wheel of Brisbane

Mom and sister being silly and posing

The man made beach in South Bank

Can’t visit South Bank with a stop at Max Brenner! Yum yum yum

Could not pass up the photo opportunity with Pedobear! Haha

Sun going down… time to go home and eat leftovers for dinner!
