Sushi Train, South Brisbane

Sashimi, again. I know.  It seems since coming back from Japan, everything is turning into a Japanese restaurant.  I am not complaining.  Roy is still amazed that I eat raw fish. With another adventure to Brisbane, I saw this place, I think it is...

Chocolate, Movies and Aroma Garden

So I turned the big 33 recently. As it was the middle of the week I had the day off from work to spend it with my Mister. The morning began with a nice walk through Spring Hill to ostensibly pick up cream for the pancakes I was making for Breakfast.

HOT – Surrealism Up Late – Gallery of Modern Art, South Brisbane.

Squishy eye balls, phallic imagery, animalistic tendencies….just a few of the key words and imagery that come to mind when I recall my evening at the Surrealism:  The Poetry of Dreams exhibition, currently on show at the Gallery of Modern Art.

HOT – The Burrito Bar (Southbank) – 5/167 Grey St, South Brisbane

HOT: Jost 154, 154 Melbourne St, South Brisbane

Bamboo Basket is new addition to the increasingly vibrant and unapologetically modern South Bank precinct. Located at the eastern end of Grey St, there was always the danger that when this Chinese restaurant opened a few months ago it would be a litt...
