Entrée: pumpkin, eggplant, asparagus, potato tempura
Salad: Rocket, fetta with roasted tomatoes tossed in a balsamic dressing
Main: Salmon Risotto with spinach, dill and a light drizzle of lemon oil
Dessert: Toblerone fondue with strawberries and banana & Crème Brule (sorry was so busy eating I didn't take pics!)
Dinner started at 7:00pm and didn’t finish till after 12, the food was fabulous! Good Job Sarah and a big Thankyou!!
Saturday Night to Sunday Morning - Sarah’s Mum Threw a family BBQ farewell for Sarah, so we tagged along!
The food: Lamb cutlets, sausages, prawns with sweet Chilli, rices dishes, Sarah’s mum’s Malaysian curry, salad, tempura eggplant and much much more!
Dinner started at 8:00pm and ended with a tiramisu cake at about 11:00pm. Seeing that it would be Sarah’s last weekend in Sydney *sniff* *sniff* we decided to head out of town for drinks. So when the clock struck 12:00 I found myself in the car park of Macquarie Bank with a crazy bunch of people singing a self composed “Happy Birthday Emily, we love technology” song to me (this will make a lot more sense if you have seen the movie Napoleon Dynamite).
I don’t know if it’s because we’re getting old? But the city seemed really silent for a Saturday night/Sunday morning. The usual places were empty and the other places had such long lines that we couldn’t be bothered. We settled on Bar 333 where I christened my 24th Birthday with a Pina Colada! (Thanks Sarah) and whatever drink that was in the picture!
Sunday night: Dinner @ Grappa
Now before anyone reading this post gets upset with me for not inviting them to dinner, the girls organised dinner last minute. So to the person that sent me the email this morning rather upset I’m really sorry!! Thanks Mum for the Matthew Williamson top as seen below.
The suprise: remember my post about Regret?
Well the girls had secretly bought me the dress!! Thank you all so much!! You're the best!!

My colleague Justin who arrived from England 2 weeks ago (a short little, bubbly man) went to collect his Medicare card from Westfield. Before he went, the other brits that I work with tried to take the mickey out of him by telling him to hold on to his wallet and to avoid eye contact with strangers.
About 15 minutes later we receive a call from Justin, there has been a bomb threat called in to Parramatta Westfield, and he has been locked in the back office of Medicare for protection? hehhe...poor bloke.

No job, no dress.
I still keep thinking about the dress, when I called the store I found out that all the size 8’s has sold out. I feel terrible, it's hard for me to find things I really like.

Reception later received a call that someone was locked out in the fire escape and they were banging furiously on the door for help. When some one let her out she pushed past them with out a word and headed straight back to the toilet cubicle.
She then rang our office from the toilet cubicle to reschedule her interview to 2:30pm. Eventually she came out at around 12:00pm walked to reception and demanded to see the consultant with whom she had the interview then and there. When she was told that consultant was not available she had a bit of a tantrum. At the interview she sat in the room with these enormous sunglasses on and refused to take them off.

What: Gourmet food market Pyrmont. There’s home made pies, warm apple cider, pumpkin bread, salmon sausages, fresh juices, chocolate dipped strawberries, cakes, fudge and homemade pasta sauces and jams. You get to taste test most things which is a bonus!
When: The 1st Saturday of every month from 7:00am to 11:am, got to get there early or some of the good stuff sells out. The markets are becoming so popular that it's quite hard to find parking even that early in the morning.
Where: The grass area opposite Star City
Out of 10: It’d be close to a 10.
My Birthday is coming up and everyone is asking what I am doing. I don’t think I am doing anything this year, there’s so many different groups of people it’s too hard to try organise. Plus, I can’t think of anywhere that can seat up to 35-40 people who doesn’t require large groups to have a banquet menu, is good value for money and is centralised for people living in different areas, suggestions?
