Trip to Toronga Zoo

Sarah and I went to Taronga Zoo today. We left the house at around 10am, and caught the 10:45am ferry over to the North Shore. We spent the next 6 hours looking around the zoo, and still didn’t see everything! We’ll have to go back again to see the rest..
I took a bunch of pics [...]

Friday fun

My friend Monika sent me this:
Answer to the age-old question…How did I get home ???

A better blog

Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before – but my blog entries tend to be a bit on the brief side. If you want to read a much more descriptive and detailed version of events (often with photos), make sure you read sarah’s blog as well.

RSS fun

This is cool. If you don’t know what RSS is, read this.

Rainy day

Last night we went to a Portuguese-Indian restaurant for dinner. I had a beef vindaloo and Sarah had blue-swimmer-crab curry. Both the dishes were fantastic, and since it was a BYO (”Bring Your Own”) place, we also took along a bottle of wine which kept the prices down. By chance, our friends Chris and Julie [...]
