Baked by Rabbit
Bought at Powerhouse Market
Seeing Princess liked them so much I bought a box (6 for A$4). She asked for them everyday until the fourth one, she's had enough.
I devoured the rest, yay.
Fisherman's Basket A$8.XX

I love Marcs casual wear (not Marcs by Marc Jacob but an Australian brand) but I don't like the price very much. When Trade Secret have shipments in from Marcs, I go crazy (well, in the changing room). The tulip dress is retailing at A$170. Crazy crazy prices at Trade Secret. What am I waiting for? Buy, buy, buy.......
I suppose this is a staple piece in ALL Jap and Korean girls' wardrobe. I have been eyeing this style for the longest time. I tried one on at Universal but at A$89.95, it's expensive for me. Imagine my joy when I saw this hanging at Trade Secret. I do the 'does my bum look big in this' test in the changing room. No (I have massive bum, I tell ya). Great relief. Down from A$69.95, not exactly greatly discounted. Still....Buy, buy, buy.....
This jacket looks cool but I am unsure about the buttons (A$34.95). Bi, you think this a good buy?
My favourite from Universal, I like the graphic on this long tee. And no, my big bum doesn't show. But at A$89.95, way above my budget for a single tee. Back on the racks, sigh.......
God, elephant legs showing. Back to jeans *sob*....

Macarons are our default buy from Chouquette. They will always have chocolate plus one other seasonal flavour. This time they had apple flavour. I can't really tell the flavour if not told beforehand.

These are the sort of styles I like, smooth silky fabrics. Ideal for summer and team it with roll neck or long sleeve tee and tights for winter. Great all year round practical and comfortable pieces.
Bi, what do think of this jacket? I am thinking, to team it with vintage grey straight leg jeans. Will it look funny?
She said everyone is wearing it in Brunei.
Brunei?? The summer all year round Brunei??
Those fashionistas blindly follow trend by all costs.
This is the Fiorelli ad campaign in most fashion mags.

I cannot relate the above lady to Joey in Dawson's Creek anymore.

Market Sq Shopping Centre (& various locations)
It's in a location handy for my toro fix.

I constantly have cravings for prawn tempura. Preferably, the Japanese long sweet prawns encased in the thinnest and lightest batter.
I have no idea where to find well-executed ones in Brisbane.
Ten don comprised of prawn and vegetable tempura. There were 2 prawns, yay but a bit chewy. Most probably because they were previously frozen. I think the price was A$11.xx.
Sad to announce it's no longer my favourite place for lunch, it has been replaced by Shin Yuan pork chop house also in Market Sq. If I have no idea where to go for lunch, or if my tummy grumble and I happen to be in Market Sq. I will always walk towards Shin Yuan unconciously. Unless of course Big King is there to stop me. Haha.
Chicken chop, pork chop bring them on. Big King is not the only pork chop face in the house. Shhhhhh, secrets.......
If I got time, I left a wafel on top of a mug of hot tea. Flip over until desired softness. If I ain't got time, I blast it in microwave for 8 secs.
Princess face lits up everytime I bring it out of the pantry.
I get mine from Mt Gravatt Deli or Rock on Melbourne. I recently saw it at Penisi Cuisine and the price is definitely cheaper.
I saw this at Vintage Cellar while shopping for bubbly.

162 Beaudesert Rd
Shopfront in 'Little Africa', Moorooka
HK Cuisine interior
Thick garish red carpet, fish tank (but this time it's for pets not dish), tacky chairs with Chinese New Year greetings *weird*.
The air-cond was just switched-on when we enter. We sat through a 'sticky' dim sum meal.
Worst first-time dining scenario.

French Boulangerie Patisserie
379 Queen St
Plenty of cakes in the chiller cabinet.
I am really spoit for choice. Totally at loss what to get.
Also on offer are bread, quiches, sandwiches, tarts and Danish pastries which should serve the lunch crowd well.
Biscuits, truffles, madeleines on display.
Nice presentation, taste wise, didn't leave much impression too.
You could tell by now Rabbit's heart had sank and eating the remaining of the cake with a poker face in silence.
Macarons, assorted flavours (A$1.50@)
The heart sank further when I tasted the macarons.....
Princess asked me to snap her when I was trying to snap the al-fresco ares.
