Birthday Dumplings @ Nan’s Dumpling Time, Hamilton.

Nan's Dumpling House

OMG, so many dumplings.

One thing about being a food blogger, and it being your birthday this week, is that you can easily talk your friendship group into gorging them self on dumplings in the interest of trying the new dumpling house in town.

Nan's Dumpling House

We ate SOOOOOOO many dumplings over a two hour period.

Pork, vego, crab, chicken. Different shapes and sizes.

And wound up with a bill under $14/head.

With a dash of rice for variety.

And THEN for some reason, we were talked into utilising our dessert stomachs for coffee and cake at Cafe de Beaumont

Lemon Meringue

Yeah, I rolled to the car.

But I’m SOOOOOOOO glad for good cheap dumplings in Newcastle!!!

(and that they dealt well with my useless booking skills and constantly expanding table!)

31 – a rolling celebration of eating, drinking and being merry

bruise

I actually don’t have too many photos from my birthday celebrations, as I had a number of late nights, where my phone battery died before meal or home time. I can say it’a been a lovely week of turning 31, and surrounding myself with people who are awesomeness.

Let’s start with a couple of days before, my dear chronically Femme Bronwyn was selling her Galaxy Tab….. and since I couldn’t find a reason not to (aside from my current financial situation) I bought it from her. She offered me Gin and Tonic, and a pillow unicorn as sweeteners to the deal…

Couple of days before my birthday, I had some plans fall through, so ended up watching Seven Psychopaths with Mic, and going out for a lovely brekkie at Chaddies in New Lambton Sunday morning.

Next was the Newtown Drinks version of my birthday – Drinks on the roof at Zanzibar, till it got too cold and we had to shift inside to the deer hunter room with the pool tables.

vodka and soda

Somewhere in there, Neko started reading to us, and demanding we head for Thai for dinner.

te hana

I did question where one was to actually find a Thai restaurant in Newtown, because there is NOWHERE to get Thai, or frozen yoghurt for that matter, on King Street ;)

neko reads

entree newtown thai

Six of us ended up at Newtown Thai, selected the basis of them being quiet and wouldn’t mind us stuffing around while we waited for a couple of extra, but delightful, boys to show up ;)

hot chip nachos marly

Next stop, the Marly (Marlborough) which has this weird indoor garden, complete with fake grass, remodel thing going on. The above nachos made with hot chips were consumed, and hugs and smiles exchanged.

Sleep was found,a nd my birthday breakfast of a meat pie and diet coke found around midday at Macquarie University train station.

Sadly, i left the gift of a Hello Kitty shower cap behind in Macquarie Park, but my habit of leaving things behind just means I need to find time to see people again :)

familyandbroncoffeecake

Where next? Off to Hippo to have coffee and cake with my family and with Bron. The kids ran around like crazy, I got more hello kitty gifts…

From there, it was off to Schnitzel night at the Warners Bay Hotel…. mine had Nachos!

Aside from that, there’s been bikkies from my boss, and <3 arm warmers from Stu... and well as many hugs and general awesomness. bikkies
