Another great dining restaurant to be in. This time it’s at the Riverside Restaurant, inside Intercontinental Hotel. Food was fantastic – entrees, mains and desserts were delicious! We had to pull ourselves away from the banquet.

Sorry I can’t remember the names for these dishes. It has been a while since I’ve had them. But do go and try them 🙂

We had a practice walk here with our good friend’s 2 year old daughter to see if she can be our flower girl for our wedding. She was great with her role and was really cute doing it. Smiling as she walked down as throwing leaves up on her side.

It was Christina’s birthday and a great friend reminded me of a restaurant to bring her to. One that she recommended and would certainly go back again. “Oooh yeah … !” I thought to myself. I rang the number of the restaurant straight after I have spoken to my friend and made a booking for 2 🙂 Yes … romantic dinner, fine dining, wine and great food (as I’ve been told). I knew she’ll enjoy it, or shall I say we’ll enjoy it. What a fantastic idea! Glad she rang me to remind me.

As I walked into the restaurant, a warm, beautiful, peaceful mood blanketed over us. Wow! This place sure looks nice. Plenty of space between tables – so we have privacy. Our waitress was very kind and took us to our seats, prepare our glass of water and gave us a warm smile. We took in the surroundings and relaxe.d. It was fantastic so far!

After looking through our menu, we decided what we wanted. Our lovely waitress saw us ready to place our order and came soon after.


What I ordered.

Been taking alot of portraits lately. Which is great cos it’s one area I love to be in and enjoy the company of people. It’s something special to capture the heart and soul of a person. An image can tell a million words about a person and express who they are, like no other means can. It captures them at a point in time, where it shows what they are feeling and the mood they’re in.  There’s a story behind every photo …

Had a nice and relaxing weekend. We went for a picnic (just the 2 of us) at Oakden Park – about 10mins drive from our home, to have dinner, before heading out to a friend’s place. Our quality time together from the busyness of work and other things. This was a time-out we needed. To hide ourselves away from the busy world.

She let me have this portrait shot of her before she turned away to avoid my camera.

Thorndon Park LakeComposite of 3 images

Had our picnic at Thorndon Park on Sunday with a few close friends next to this lake. It was a great day for it and the weather was beautiful. It was cloudy, but it made the picture all the worth while taking as it gives the blue sky some white fluffy patches.

I had a great weekend as yesterday was a public holiday for us. So it was a 3 day weekend for me 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend too!

This friend of mine is in the Army Reserve while studying for his Medical Science. They get him training pretty hard too! But he is enjoying what he is doing, and seems happier with the ways thing turn out. He was brave doing what he did – changing career and going back to study from a well paid job. Good on him for making the change!
