hallo :D I just made brownies for my orientation group so they better attend host catch up like they said they would or......or....... us hosts will just finish them off anyway :D hehe
This is a very late post on how Farn and i spent our Valentines. It was basically a normal day out but with more exploring and presents :)
After buying sushi for breakfast and a few shopping errands, we headed off to Kinfolk Cafe
Situated on 673 Bourke Street (very close to Southern Cross Station), this not-for-profit cafe channels its earnings into charitable projects. So when you finish your meal you're asked to pick which charity to support by placing a coffee bean in any of the four jars :)

I think it was the quirky and arty decorations that initially attracted me to this cafe... and its affordable prices.
Except when we went the seating was more communal.. so there was a long table in the middle with milk crates covered in hessian cloth as seats.
Which was great but made taking photos more awkward because it looked like i was stalking someone on the table...
But the food lived up to my expectations - everything was fresh and full of flavour and i really liked how our water came in a Hendrick's Gin bottle. rofl we were like is this water or not...
According to the handwritten menu that changes daily, we had Gravalax Trout with Goat Cheese Croutons and Chicken Terrine with House Pickle and Sourdough Bread.
Man, this is starting to turn into a badly written food review now...
Then we trammed down to ACMI in Federation Square to check out the Disney Exhibition YAYAY. It's $12 for concession but we weren't allowed to take any photos inside :( And we got sucked into this free (yes.. blame this word & our asianess) curator talk about the exhibition until we decided to leave after ten minutes to go see the actual exhibition ourselves... sitting in the front row can be so embarrassing sometimes LOL
LOL this picture cracks me up.. not sure what he was thinking.
Anyway, the main goal of the day was to camwhore as a couple more. Because we have so few pictures together that finding a photo to paste in his card became alarmingly difficult.
So off to the park we went... because who doesn't love grass as scenery...
But first we stopped off at Tiffany & Co. for my present. Thank you for the ring Farn :)
I have a headache why didn't i post this a week earlier. Who knew cramming could improve my short term memory at the cost of my long term memory...
Yes... so where are the couple pictures you ask? they're coming they're coming..
We actually went looking for Beetroot Cafe for some Hot Chocolate with Persian Fairy Floss but found this place - Cafe Giraffe - off Little Lonsdale Street instead.
Again, the interior design made me like the place immediately despite its slightly slow service...
There are even board games to play with (due to the slow service...?) and i think the place is Korean despite hearing most of the customers speak Cantonese.
This was Japanese Gyoza with Soba Noodles.. not bad but that White Tomato korean place next to Passionflower had better soba noodles.
And to finish off our afternoon tea (at er... 6pm LOL) we had Chocolate Pudding with Vanilla Icecream.
Sorry for all the writing.. but we did do a lot that day and i hope that this post was detailed enough for those who requested it.
I have to pack my bag for tomorrow now...
