Parallel Parking

I just parallel parked a car from the wrong side of the car.

Not only that...  I did it perfectly.  If you looked up "parallel parking" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of the car I just parked.

I've always been good at it, but I have to say that I'm pretty proud of myself right now.  Can't slap the smile off my face.  Been on a "perfect parallel parking" high for over an hour now.


I'm a Quilter

I love to quilt.  I don't have enough time to quilt as much as I would like because I also like having lazy computer time, but I love to quilt.

I also love to win stuff and I've been told that I will get an extra chance to win a quilting book if I link to Felicity Quilts, so there it is.  I sure hope this makes me eligible.

Chinese Birthday Lunch

This past Saturday my good friend, Belinda, took me out for lunch for my birthday.  We went to a very nice Chinese restaurant called New Shanghai at Chatswood Chase.  Naturally, I took photos of everything.  I even got a couple of the pics that Bee took of me being nervous about the food.

This is a Dim Sim called New Shanghai crab meat Xiao Long Bao -
steamed mini crab meat & pork bun
I could eat these all day long.

This is a main called Fried garlic American pork ribs.
I thought these were good, but could use some kind of sauce.
Dare I say, BBQ sauce?  LOL

This is a main called Deep fried blue swimmer crab coated with salted egg yolk.
This pretty much cemented the fact that I'm not a crab girl.
Don't get me wrong... I like crab.  I just don't like to work so hard for so little.
The salted egg yolk coating was to die for!

Me...  taking a photo of dessert.

This is a dessert called Sesame paste dumplings in Chinese dessert rice wine soup.

Took me a while, but I finally took a bite...  and LIKED IT!
We both looked like we had dreadful oral hygiene for a while though.  LOL

As I said...  it took me a while to take that first bite and I was quite nervous.

The video above is the pathway near our bungalow.

The videos above and below are some flora/fauna things that caught my eye.

The above video is from the Twilight Sail we took.

The above video is a cockatoo who was trying to eat me and my wallet.
