We went for my brothers birthday at a Korean BBQ Restaurant. The top photo shows the BBQ section where we put skewers of meat and it rotates on its own and cooks like a spit. I forgot to take pictures of the section where the food is kept and we go and collect our plateful and bring to the table to cook. Wonderful invention and so much nicer an easier for the restaurant.
The second section was the Hot Pot where the pot sits on a hot plate and boils away, as you can see the pot is divided into two sections, one is for spicy soup and the other not spicy. We add all our meats and seafood and vegetables and cook and eat as we go. The soup ends up being so tasty with all that infusion. Definitely going back again.
On Saturday we went to the Royal Queensland show or EKKA as it is famously known for, it proved to be the coldest windy week. We stood in line at 9am shivering in the cold wind of 5C, then the glorious sun came out. I will be show casing photos from the show over the next week as there are too many for one post.
Cakes cakes and more cakes, some of them looked worse for wear as this was the second day, I dont know what they will look like as the days go on. Tomorrow is a special holiday for workers so they can go to EKKA, only in Australia do you get a holiday to go to a show hahahaha.
My favourite section is the preserves, this was lemon butter also my favourite
Another paper hair design, so very clever.
This was not at the show, I got these from my favourite tea shop T2. Left pink box is Strawberries and Cream tea. Tins on the right will hold leaf tea for me to take to Stamp Camp this weekend woohoo I can't wait. The two sachets on the left were freebies. I went to get the tea strainer with the cute little tea spoon so I can fit it into the tins. I spotted the tea timer as got one as well. The book is full of recipes for desserts and tea. Will share what I make from them in the coming weeks and months.
I was invited to participate in a global postcard project called Dear Richmond during the UCI Road World Cycling Championship in September.
"Dear Richmond is a global exhibition hosted by Big Planet, Small World. Our goal is to connect cultures and celebrate our unity while highlighting what makes us unique. This is your opportunity to show a world wide audience what you love about your city or country...to share your piece of the world with everyone."
You can participate too. Either by sending a postcard or visiting the event.
"Stop by our booth at The Championships and receive a free Richmond postcard in return and find out what we think makes our city of Richmond so great.
**please allow enough time for postcards to arrive by August 30, 2015 - send to:
