So. For those of you who don’t follow me on twitter, i got a tattoo about a month ago. i’ve actually been wanting one for a while now but couldn’t decide on a design and was randomly talking to my bro’s gf about tattoos and somehow we decided to get one together that weekend. Originally i was just gonna get Chocolatesuze in one line but because i wanted it on my shoulder blade it wouldn’t have fit so i made it 2 words and since a lollipop was too tall i got a cupcake instead. With pink icing and a cherry on top 😀 We went to The Illustrated Man (228a Elizabeth St, Sydney- near Central station) and after showing the dudes a print out of our designs we were quoted a price- mine was $150 mainly because it was pretty big and the text had shading. It took about an hour and yes it freaking hurt! i have a low threshold of pain haha the outline was bearable but when he shaded everything in i was clutching the pillow pretty hard i tells ya! Anywhos im officially branded lol and normal posting will resume shortly!

Oh interwebs. How i miss uninterrupted super fast broadband speed! My bro managed to snap this pic the other day when we made another visit to Starbucks-land and it cracks me up every time i look at it! Surprisingly the hot chocolate here is much more chocolatey which is a bonus. i have 2 more days to stuff myself with all the hokkien mee, roti, nasi lemak, mee rebus, cendol, chicken rice, satay, kueh, sarsi, bak kut teh, durian, laksa and mangosteen that my stomach can manage before i return on sat. See ya’ll on the flip side!

HAI. So i tried to keep up with my 3 posts a week routine but after 1 week i have failed. The hotel we’re staying at is charging an arm and a leg for internet so i’ve been camping at Starbucks. Thank god Malaysians love this coffee for it seems there are as many Starbucks here as there are McDonalds in Sydney. Shopping has been great. Eating has been even more fantastic and my mission this trip is to eat as many kaya toast from as many stalls as my heart can handle. Wedding dinner with the rellies was interesting because there was another wedding at the same time in the restaurant and boy were they loud haha but food was tasty and photos to come as soon as i can handle another Starbucks coffee

all you can eat ribs dinner ($29p.p on Tues) at Waterfront Grill (Shop 289 Harbourside, Darling Harbour)
EDIT: Waterfront Grill no longer offers all you can eat ribs
This is Jacq aka Penguin Says Feed Me! This youngin had just turned 21 and what better way to celebrate than an all you can eat ribs dinner ($29p.p on Tues) at Waterfront Grill (Shop 289 Harbourside, Darling Harbour) with a whole bunch of other awesome super hungry food bloggers. Their website says mention the ad and you get a free soft drink but the waiters had nfi about this promotion and we ended up asking to speak to the manager who also had no clue and so iphones were produced and the website shown before our round of drinks appeared with much apologies.
Oh hai. i like knives.
The ribs arrive, glistening with the tastyness that is bbq sauce. The thick chunky cut chips are golden and fantastic and even though they are classified as ‘filler’ by the boys they are irresistibly munched upon. Billy mentions ordering a side of salad and while at first we all laugh at the idea of greenery, after the first plate of ribs is devoured i would’ve loved some form of lettuce to help balance the meat.
I am fail and only manage 2 plates of ribs but Richard manages 4 plates before finally admitting defeat.
The arrival of Ellie’s crack pie with a singular candle in the middle is greeted with pleadings of ‘please don’t sing!’ from Jacq which of course makes Richard and I break out into song and soon the whole table is joining in, the candle blown out and the crack pie is portioned out with Helen travelling 40mins across town to get a piece of the pie.
The pie may be a tad on the not so pretty side but it sure makes up for its lumpy appearance with a bucketful of awesomeness. It definitely lived up to it’s nick name of ‘crack pie’ with its super short and buttery cookie crust and a sweet gooey filling so freaking addictive that i was scraping the plate clean. Stomachs full we stumble onwards for some ice cream. Cos that is how we roll heh. Hope you had a happy birthday Jacq!
