Highlights of the day:
- BBQ picnic at Kings Park
- Taking the legendary “Bluehouse-photo”
- San Churros!
I love the electric bbq pit in aussie!! Unlike those in ECP in Singapore, you don’t have to book/pay for the bbq pit, plus, it is an electric-pit so there is no need to buy charcoals and whatnot. Such hussle-free!!!
We cycled to a grocery store (Super Iga, again) to get some essentials like tongs and oil, snacks, fruits (all the picnic food) and some meats for us to bbq! We bought the pre-seasoned ones so we can literally skip the trouble of us having to marinate them.
Just bbq-ing our unseemingly flavorful organic peri peri chicken breasts and gluten free gourmet chicken sausage yumzzz.
Picnic-ing with a view.
After lunch, we cycled upwards to the top of kings park to get a good view of the city. We also grabbed a cup of ice coffee and sat down on the grass patch to chill just like the locals :p
The legendary bluehouse shot.
But i actually love this view better :’) Also, there is no need to be thick-skinned and pose while the whole world is waiting for your shots to be taken. Yes, behind that glam bluehouse shot, is a bunch of grumpy ppl queueing to take the same photos as you LOL.
And here i was, being pretentious and all… being slightly indifferent to the stares behind the camera…..
And of course, i wouldn’t be called “thefattytourist” for nothing right? How can i end the day without trying the all famous San Churro!! They have many outlets in Aussie, but we found one on the way back home. We shared a-plate-for-two red velvet churros with cream cheese frosting and it was T H E B O M B Z!!! It’s a tad pricey, but i honestly think it’s worth a try! We didn’t get to order all the fancy drinks they have, but we heard that their chocolate drinks are really good. Try it and let me know if it’s indeed worth all the calories. Hehehe.
Dinner!! As usual, we popped by Super Iga in a sheer attempt to clear their “reduced” items. We got ourselves some “reduced” chicken breasts to make the cheesy chicken patty (in the pan), some salmon cream cheese cake (bottom plate) and some “reduced” apple crumble (that was mehhhh). Could’ve been better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream though? hehe. And Justin cooked up some indomee which he got it from the Asian Supermarket. And if you are wondering…. yes, we overeat every day heh.
