The Year of the Ox came in for me amidst the sounds of great merriment and lively chatter as well as an overwhelming feeling of overtaxed bellies. My favourite new creation from the chefs was some exotic eggplant tasting gigantic flower deep fried in batter which were absolutely delicious!
I was really tired this year...I had to cheat to welcome in the new year by playing some cutesy PSP game Roku Loku(?) with lively animation and music to keep my brain awake so that my eyes could remain open...Yet more evidence that I am getting OLD :p
...oh, it also happens to be AUSTRALIA DAY today-Yay for a public holiday Long Weekend!!!
...Sorry I couldn't resist with the following:
To Exotic UnAustralian Friends in Faraway Places,
To Celebrate this Day, I am sending you each a virtual representation of what is this arguably this country's most invaluable contribution to the gastronomic world!!! *LoL
