The Lucky Shag Bar

Lucky Shag Bar Perth

Lucky Shag Waterfront Bar
“The only bar in the city on the river”, overlooking the expanse of Swan River across to South Perth. A must for tourists, also a great place to wind down and catch up with the locals over a couple of wines/beers.
Love their crazy-sounding cocktails: Shag By The River (Sex On The Beach), Fruity Booty, Lucky Shag Sling and Bermuda Rum Swizzle!

Swan RIver Sunset

Slow and romantically lone walk along the Swan River waterfront overlooking South Perth.  Sea breeze and its accompanying calm did wonders for the incessant noise in my head, as did the pull of my heart in various messy directions. Loving the bright blue skies, crystal seas and its zen. This is nature at its best; beauty speaking the loudest as it is silent.

Mad about Churros

Rajissimo in Copenhagen has the best churros I’ve ever eaten, and I miss it soooo much!
When I stumbled upon Churros Plus in Perth, the sugar-cinnamon aroma single-handedly overpowered all my will to eat clean. Churros Plus Australia

The plus-sized made-to-order churros are filled to-the-brim with chocolate, vanilla or caramel flavours.DSCN4230

A little disturbed by how phallic-looking my food turned out. But since it tastes that good, as my colleagues would say, “it can look like a dick for all it wants.”Caramel Churros

Salads Galore: Brisbane

Jetlag & eye-bags-inducing fatigue always compels me to choose junk food over my greens. Couldn’t stay asleep for as long as I wanted in Brisbane, so I was up early to hunt for good coffee.
Found: Smoked Salmon Salad from Green Bean, King George Square. Soooo yummy!

Yet again I had sooo many consecutive days of unhealthy eating and an irreparably screwed-up sleep cycle!! Need a mad-healthy diet to make up for the toll that jet-setting is taking on my health.

Brisbane, King George Square

Someday I’d wish to be a true backpacker in Brisbane;
just my haversack & laptop for a couple of weeks.
Too many amazing streets to stroll along, colors and sights to see,
vintage buildings to admire, and entertaining buskers to applaud.
Liberal-minded people to talk to and be impressed by.
Talents abound and magic to be discovered.

Pictorial Walk-through…of BRISBANE!!
Because I literally went everywhere on foot.

Anyone knows what it is? Pelican?  photo DSCN1647.jpg

Look what I found!
A little piece of home in a foreign land!
Am always fascinated by foodcourts that offer ‘Singaporean Cuisine’  photo DSCN1654.jpg

I have to check books out in every single country. It’s a no-go action. photo DSCN1655.jpg

For many reasons, I’m so thankful this came out blurred.
Firstly I was out gallivanting alone right after a much-needed sleep.
This bunch of men came up to ask for a photo, as if they’ve never seen Asians in their land.
So they took this shot with my camera as well as this person’s phone.
I was so afraid they were gonna run away with my digicam.
Still, strange yet funny. photo DSCN1692.jpg

AMAZING BUSKERS!! I met a magician that day which amazed the hell out of me.
This band, PLUDO, were just as entertaining.
Will be uploading videos of them soon! They have their own CDs and gigs,
but they’re doing street busking to garner more popularity. photo DSCN1742.jpg

My take-home drystores and snacks.
I was up till late writing that night at Pullman Brisbane King George Street,
and barely slept although the hotel bed was, as always, incredibly comfortable. photo DSCN1746.jpg

Brisbane was incredible. I’ll be back soon enough.
Just landed Taipei…
And next up, Copenhagen!!!
I’m quite tired to be very frank, but the adrenaline sets in whenever I touch down on somewhere new.
Where’s the sense of adventure if you’re out there and not exploring??
