A Day Long Excursion

Assignments over, exams aside, it’s time to unwind.

I had a day off from work last Wednesday and since John was going back home (hes already back in Laksa-land), we planned a whole day out to shop and to wu liao stuff.

Sadly, i didn’t bring my other phone out to take clearer pics 😦

Started the day bright and early, he went to the doctors while i went to get my tickets sorted out in the city. Then we met at Freo at a little pass 10am.

To the Chocolate Factory we went!

The smell of chocs was SO overwhelming. I never knew i would be nauseated from the smell of chocolates.

I’m so proud to say that i went to a chocolate factory and didn’t buy chocs. Instead, i got some old fashioned sweets. Bullseyes!

Nevertheless, they do make really good chocolates…handmade chocs FTW.

Oh, but I did buy a piece of chilli truffle. It was so good. For AUD1.20 a piece, it was seriously divine 😀

Then we popped by the WA Maritime Museum to kill time while waiting for the bus.

Off to Sizzlers for a late lunch. Best part of it…it was FREE. 😀 I doubt i would have gone if i had to pay but we had the vouchers for the salad bar so it was all good.

Headed back to the city from Riverton and at this point of time it was already 4-ish.

Lacking sleep and burned out by the weather, we decided to watch Saw IV which was a bad idea.

I slept through most parts -_-”

But it was good because i stepped out of the cinema feeling so refreshed and ready to take on the evening! Plus the sun was already going down hehe.

So from the city, we went to Fremantle.

AGAIN.

It didn’t seem so crazy then, but to think of it now we could have better executed our day to save us so much time travelling around Perth.

Our plan was to go to Little Creatures to satisfy his cravings of ales and mine of steaks but we had a feeling it would be packed. So was Benny’s and Pizza Bello Roma.

So in the end we headed to Little Caesar’s.

It was BAD.

To call the food horrible would be an understatement.

Between us we shared a Fillet steak, beef filled gnocchi with cheese sauce and a 200ml bottle of Omni Rose Sparkling.

The steak came out smelling…weird. Sourish and…i don’t know. It was just horrible.

John’s gnocchi wasn’t a lot better either. But the sauce wasn’t too bad. 😛

And for an Italian place right smacked at Fremantle’s Cappuccino strip, there were people singing Filipino Karaoke in the restaurant. WTF.

An unfortunate ending to otherwise a very good day.

Had some take away pizza from Pizza Bella Roma afterwards.

The Works: Tomato/cheese base, ham, capsicum, tomato, mushroom, olives, bacon, hot salami, pineapple, smoked mussels, shrimps, anchovies.

Woodfired pizza FTW. Beats Dominoes or Pizza Hut anytime. 😀

And in a totally unrelated post, just because it doesnt wanna appear in a separate entry,


Roasted Suckling Pig (AUD23 per kg)


Roasted Duck (AUD20 per bird)

The office had a little get together Barbie(Q) a week or so ago. The grilling aside, we all brought something else for a little variety. I was gonna bring some of the Chez Jean Claude tartlets but someone mentioned cravings for roasted meat instead. Those were from Hung Kee BBQ, Northbridge.

Yums.

Can’t wait for Christmas.

Oh the joy.
