Monday Funday with Tendy

tendy
Grumpy Baker Pie. Nom!

Lunch by the beach with 10D today. Him and I both spent thousands of hours in the same game last year but didn’t speak to each other on the mic much. Both of us were in a shit place but both of us seem to have resurfaced at the same time. Really great catch up, a bit rushed if anything as Tendy had to pick up the kids! I’m really enjoying hanging out with friends who have gone further than I have with some aspects of life. 44 this year and back to learning something new every day. I’m on track!

Chinese New Years 2019 @ Queen Chow

queenchow
Family decided to celebrate this year at Justin Hemmes’ new restaurant in Enmore (Justin Hemmes owns Merivale and I used to do design work for the wanker). I was like oh noes, its gonna be expensive, and we’re supporting a Sydney Playboy here, not a chef…

OK this Alaskan crab & pork xiao long bao with gold flakes was the best fucking yum cha I’ve had in my life. This Chinese New Years special, with the fucking crazy rich asians gold leaf, was so juicy and the crab tasted like it was caught this morning, fresh from the ocean. Fucking wow. Even a local Guangzhou chinaman would lose his shit tasting this. We ended up ordering 2 more serves!

yumcha
Also SO SO good. The one with the red bean that we usually find in stinky medicine, that one in particular was fucking epic mushroom goodness.

longlifenoodle
Oh de long life noodle.

#wearefamily – Was awesome to finally catch up with my cousins. Not as much awkwardness as I thought there would be as I hadn’t been attending the larger get togethers for about a year now.

This is meant to be like the flavour of the year or some shit, voted on some world wide challenge. I took one spoon and was like OMFG it’s just… so so sweet… way too sweet (funny as I loved sweet stuff when I was punching cones all day). I thought it was missing an adult coffee flavour. Lesson: NEVER ever say something is the best, ever? Hype kills.

Mad hangs with slick mofo Nick Turner today; white FD, car talk, music talk, camera talk, design talk, food, life talk, what’s not to like?! Helps the guy is calm (ZEN as fuck, really), and has a calming effect on me, which is a good thing as it doesn’t take much for me to get manic these days!

PS: Nick has gone freelance, check out his awesome work on his instagram. Follow: @therealnickturner

Hangs with Alain

Jamon.

Solid hangs with Alain yesterday. Alain’s kicked off Meal Friends, a new passion project where he and his mates visit food joints around town. Sounds like it’s been done before, right? But Alain’s got a certain something and I’m in love with the intro/first 10 seconds of his first video. Be sure to check it out, it’s shot so well too! (shot by Daniel Karjadi who also vlogs).
