PenguinBag review and booties giveaway

Congratulations to Kat! I will be in contact and sending those booties out to you shortly. Winter finally hit Wellington. To be honest, it’s been a rather mild winter, but we’ve had a few extra nippy nights. And just in time, we received these awesome sleeping bags for the kids. The kids were thrilled with…

I did like

I like bukakke

Went to this Japanese restaurant called Tatsushi the other day. (What – did you think this post was about something else?) I got the bukkake udon. Partly because they sold out of the oyako donburi, but mostly because I’m immature and it made me snigger. “Can I have the bukkake udon please?” I asked. I…

Because the dentist needs more money

High tea at the Hippopotamus

When a friend from Auckland came down to visit me, I thought it was a great excuse to splash out and treat myself to a high tea at the Hippopotamus. Not only was it a high tea, at the Hippopotamus, it was a cocktail high tea – ooh la la. I can’t say I’ve had…

Restaurant Review: Bordeaux Bakery

I can’t say I’ve been that impressed by Bordeaux yet. We’ve only been when I have an Entertainment Book voucher to use up. Good thing because their prices are pretty high – $8.20 for a cheese/ham/tomato croissant!? I guess you shouldn’t expect normal bakery prices because they also trade as a cafe, but still, I…

Restaurant Review: Zico

Well, well, well. Unfortunately, my only experience at Zico last week was nothing to rave about. We were a large group of ten, out for a birthday dinner on St Patrick’s Day, and the waiters were new or just clueless, so perhaps those factors have to be taken into account for the less than satisfactory…

Restaurant Review: Satay India

As the name implies, Satay India do both Malaysian and Indian cuisine. However, sometimes they will only offer one of those (I think it depends on which chef is on that night). Satay India, located on Allen Street in Wellington city, often does two for one deals during the week – as long as you…

Yay for Green Day

Apart from the ridiculously loud volume level, which is the norm for all concerts, the Green Day concert was everything I hoped it would be. I missed seeing them back in 1996 but 13 years and a baby later I finally got to experience them live and they were awesome! It was great to hear…

Restaurant Review: Matterhorn

Two words – small and pricey. We went to the Matterhorn a couple weeks ago with the hubby’s brother and his then-pregnant wife (who had her baby the day after me). The brother-in-law heard good things so we were keen to give it a go. The meals were tasty, but boy they were the smallest…

Restaurant Review: Good World

The Good World Chinese restaurant in Lower Hutt doesn’t do yum char so well. We went on a Saturday at 12:15pm. Should have been a busy time, and it did look fairly populated. Unfortunately the same food kept cycling around and we only got one dish of steamed dumplings in the first 3/4 of the…

Movie Review: The Ugly Truth

Yay for free movie passes. The hubby and I got to see this advanced screening on Wednesday, courtesy of More FM. Katherine Heigl plays an unlucky-in-love neurotic young professional who gets love tips from a manly man’s perspective in bagging her ‘perfect’ man. It’s R16, so expect some crude adult humour and four letter words.…
