On my whirlwind few days in Canberra earlier this month, one of my catchups saw me trying the Burmese Curry Place for a $7 lunch near the bus interchange in Civic.

I had a melt in the mouth pork with a chicken and crunchy beans. It went down well! :)



YFA97G, no more :(

At least they weren’t ‘Feel the power of Canberra’ ones.

Decided that, as I had enforced leave between Xmas and NYE anyway, I might as well head down to Canberra, a place I had never been during that period of time when I HAD lived there. Always part of the exodus.

Booked myself a lovely room at the Mantra on Northbourne. Top floor, nice view. King bed. HOT shower :)

And walking distance from Civic. Which meant I could easily catch up with friends for dinner or drinks :)

First stop was coffee with the darling Hannah to catch up on life.

Dinner one night I caught up with Mike at Wagamama. Noodles! Sake!

Even went and watched a movie. Must have been on holidays!

Spent my middle day sitting in Glebe Park. Breathing. Relaxing. Chilling. Napping ;)

(I got sunburnt. In the shade! Bloody hell!)

Stalked down Pia (ooh Wikipedia page) for a quick catch up at Gus’s.

Of course, a few glasses of Canberra region wine were consumed ;)

It took me awhile to figure out the best way to eat my fruit salad, but it was yum (yummer with the honey that we had to remind them to give us)

I’m told the croissants went well :)
