Australia day - Eureka tower & Passionflower

Happy Australia day!!! I know I posted a day late but I was too tired to think of stuff to ramble on here last night lol. Wednesday night, a bunch of us from work went for dinner then karaoke so only slept like 4hrs yesterday. Yesterday being Australia day, we went to the city for some drinks at the South Wharf Hotel.
 
This is what I wore yesterday (mini OOTD) - loving the pastel colours lately. 
  • Top - Kookai 
  • Shorts - Forever New
  • Shoes - Wittners
 
 After that I wanted to go to the Crown chinese festival but turns out they haven't started yet so we walked to Eureka tower and went to the sky desk instead.
 
Check it out! Level 88... when we were going up the elevator, my ears were popping. It took like 2mins to get up to 88, It doesn't feel like it's going up that fast.
 
 The view at the top! B was disappointed when we got up here coz he's been up higher lol I love it how they always advertise stuff in Australia 'tallest building in the southern hemisphere' or 'largest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere'. Seriously, there is not much stuff down on this side of the world that could compete.
Dessert was next! We went for ice cream at this place near china town called passionflower, they sell asian flavored ice creams and desserts.

Menu looks pretty cool.

I ordered the black sesame ice cream with glutinous balls. To be honest, I've had better ice cream than this and for wayy cheaper too. This thing you see cost $15.50 and it was only 2 scoops of ice cream. They had like a dessert platter for $40ish, I was thinking omg 40bucks for some ice cream?? I could have a decent meal for that price.

I don't really do the traditional Australia day celebrations, my day was more like a date lol I had a really nice day, too bad I had to go into work today though!

What did you do on Australia day?

Thanks for reading!! =)

  10. I took my bf to watch the sunset for his birthday/our 18 months at the end of 2011 :) did a blog post too but can't be bothered to find the link haha. I agree that the views aren't that spectacular, but the sunset was really pretty. Too many people though!
    And yum Passionflower. I'm not a fan of Asian desserts so I always go for the boring 'mango' etc ones. It is quite pricey but I like going there for a special treat every now and then :)
