I caught up with my two Uni friends who I’ve gotten very close with over the course of 2008– let’s say more or less if it weren’t for them I would have missed more classes than I had already moaping over a silly boy or I wouldn’t be here at all. I hadn’t seen them for two months because I was in Vietnam and then one of them was overseas and the other had family commitments, but we finally got ourselves together for a lovely day in the city.
First we had lunch at the Greek restaurant, Stalactitites where I had a very filling and delicious lamb souvlaki.
Then we visited an art supplies store, which I had been meaning to check out since last year! Seriously I can browse in these stores all day, touching and dreaming up all the supplies I wish I had :D
We ventured to Victoria Market for an hour or two then had a little snack of delicious Belgium waffles with melted chocolate served by a lovely French lady on Degraves Street~
Wandered over to The Greenhouse at Federation Square, which is a temporary exhibition by Joost and it’s built entirely from recycled and recyclable materials! With floors made of old shipping crates, tables from fire hydrants and a feature wall of wild strawberries– it’s amazing and terribly relaxing! We sat on the roof chatting while sipping lemonade while the city bustled bellow. If I wasn’t so full I would have ordered chips from the café because they were served in cute terracotta pots!!!
We stopped briefly at the Federation Square Book Market in the Atrium and I swear if I weren’t on a budget I would be buying a whole ton of books for my make believe library~ hehe. Afterwards we explored other parts of the city and wandered through alleyways admiring street art. It’s so different now… alleyways used to be empty, now people flock to them to take photos. We’re no longer alone!!
I thought this was cool :p
Fafi was here! Fafi was here! So excited to find one of her fafinettes! xD
It was a pleasant day; I’ve been feeling in a bit of a slump lately so this was a breath of fresh air.
Right now, my cheeks are still tingling from sunkisses and I’m mouthing the words to Kelly Clarkson’s new single ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’; I’m so tempted to jump and down and scream to this song.
PS. Thank-you Louise for letting me know that my RSS link wasn’t working. It’s fixed now! A question: when I subscribe to a blog/website do I type the Feed’s URL or the actual site’s URL into my Google Reader? For some reason everyone’s sites I’ve tried works both ways, but for my site, the Feed URL works whereas my blog’s URL doesn’t work- says it doesn’t exist. Help, explain?!
