*Quickie with iPhone.
Today was spent oohing and aahing at the familiar shops that have been here since 1999. Heh. Spotted Mekong, the famous Vietnamese pho place, Supper Inn, Wing Cheong grocery store, just to name a few.
It feels surreal to be back, walking down the roads which we were so familiar with, holding hands not with Darcy but with Darcy junior… I miss the husband today (hopefully today only ah! :p).
It rained almost the whole day sadly. It was gloomy, windy and wet which I won’t mind that much had I worn another pair of shoes instead of my beloved brown leather boots. :(
The initial plan was to do some skipping around the beach at St Kilda, say hello to the seagulls, have a cuppa hot chocolate (for the boy), latte (for me) and cakes while chillaxing with our books. But we managed the latter, at Acland Bakery (!!), which surprisingly, is still around despite the so-so tasting cakes which never fails to wow me whenever I pass by the bakery’s window display. I’m glad. :))
Summary for today : –
Mid-day break : handroll $2.50 (used to be $1.70 if i remember correctly) which I often had whenever I ran my errands in town. :)
Supper : Mushroom Swiss Angus XT from Hungry Jack’s. So yummy!!
Accidental buy of the day : another pair of boots from Steve Madden at 70% discount! I’m a happy girl. ;)
Dinner : Mamasita (Mexican) — The gf took us to one of her favourite restaurants and boy oh boy, the food was good or what! We ordered quite a bit ; Elotes Callejeros (Grilled corn with mayo, cheese & paprika), Pozolito (Pulled pork & Shrimp Soup with Chili and Cumin), Huitlacoche (Mushroom) Quesadilla, Venado Tostadas (orange cured venison), Carnitas Tostadas (Pork), Tongue Taco (Braised Ox Tongue and Cheeks), Snapper Ceviche, Quinoa Ensaladas and super lethal Margaritas!
Because I was too stuffed, I went off to Safeway for late night shopping for a good 1.5 hours right after we got back but not before I changed the shoes of course. I know i have said it before but I’m gonna say it again… I love grocery shopping at Safeway! :)
