Sharing a few of the personalised gifts received from my sister – 25th birthday presents! Had so many laughs that night – big thanks to my family and Michael for all the wonderful presents not included in this picture! ❤


Photo #151: Do-it-yourself AYCE Sushi

July 29, 2012

  1. Yoni took this picture, not me. Thus, I am cheating today.
  2. There was a lot of sushi – it was yum!
  3. Leftover birthday cake for dessert is always good (passionfruit cheesecake)!
  4. Coconut and basil is always a winning combination for shrimp tempura every time.
  5. We can’t find good AYCE sushi in Brisbane. Solution? Do it ourselves!

Photo #150: My Man

Meet Michael, he’s wonderful and we have a by-the-book-corny story of how we met:

I had finally landed in Australia and had just arrived at my temporary accommodation complete with 3 large and 2 small pieces of luggage (don’t judge me). The receptionist declared I needed to see the facilities and meet the other Canadians who had already arrived. Michael was the first person I was introduced to (and Yoni). She then told Michael to help me upstairs with my luggage and the rest they say, is history… 😛

Sidenote: Today is my birthday! I’m a quarter century old, woo hoo! We took our family up to Sunshine Coast to visit Noosa Heads Beach – what a lovely day with beautiful weather! And I received such lovely gifts at the end of the day, will share more in a future post!

Photo #148: More to Eat

July 26, 2012

It says this Quality Street tin of chocolates now has ‘more to share’ – I don’t know about you, but I always look for better deals to have more to eat, not share, haha! Also, this is my first time seeing an odd weight (969g) that’s rounded up to a whole number by including the weight of the packaging… weird.

Oh look at that, all gone already!
