EDITED 13/10 – I was asked rather nicely to take these images (and the post, but that’s not happening) down by a member of the birthday party Jeff was with last night. Since I don’t feel like too much hassle I’ll run with it – but I think whoever posted the pics originally will realise that the photos are all on Twitter and Facebook anyways.
“I was apart of the group that celebrated Jeff McCloy’s birthday last night. The cake was an innocent joke and should never have been posted online. We would greatly appreciate it if you deleted the images and posts from your blog.” – Nice enough.

So, last night the Twitters were all a flutter with some pictures of Jeff McCloy with a birthday cake making light of the brown paper bags of cash he supposedly handed over to politicians and so forth, as came to light in ICAC earlier this year.

Photos removed, but I’m sure you can find them if you like.

RE-EDITED 13/10
Oh look, NBN posted them, and The Herald

Can I put them back in the post now?

Jeff McCloy and his cake

Of course he didn’t know about the cake before he had it in front of him, and it was just an unfortunate joke, but social media is unforgiving when a city has been burned.

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.

Nan's Dumpling House

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

July 28, 2013

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 […]

A lazy #diyrainbow cake

May 5, 2013

So, I was sent a few packs of the Queen Soft Sugar Pearls to try out, because I am such an avid baker. Plus I love the idea of silver balls that won’t break a tooth. Think of them as Cachous, but they don’t have to be swallowed whole :p Having a few to eat […]

Seaview Malaysian, Redhead

November 21, 2012

Gluten Free Sponge from Slice of Life. Yum! A family birthday dinner in a Malaysian Chinese Restaurant in the suburb of Redhead. Seaview Malaysian was able to adjust our meals so all dishes were gluten free, and boy we were stuffed by the end of it! Prawn Toast (not GF) Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup […]

A little blurry @ Hippo Espresso

October 14, 2012

Sometimes I can’t take a non-blurry picture. Like when I’m out for coffee with a friend after a rough few weeks. Her helping to get me laughing, and telling me that there IS light at the end of that tunnel even if I can’t, or don’t want to, see it right now. Even if I […]
