Tea for three

Sunnybank is like a suburban Chinatown in Brisbane.  I love the hustle and bustle of the people, the (somewhat gross) entrails and intestines hanging up in the window of the butchers, and the pungent smells of the food. Even the rotting food reminds me of the back alleyways of Hong Kong.

I took my Mum and Stepdad, who were visiting from North Queensland, to my favourite Vietnamese Cafe.  As usual it was bustling with people and the place was wafting with the heady smells of chicken pho.  We had three dishes to share - an enormous bowl of chicken pho, rice paper rolls, and chicken and rice with salad.  I also had the taro milk with pearls.  The bill - $25.  Bargain.

Farewell to the Finger

Powderfinger signed out with their farewell tour "Sunsets". Josh and I went to their final concert ever.  The atmosphere was electric and the concert was awesome.  It was also pretty special cause Josh and I both love Powderfinger, and it was his first ever concert.  

It was pretty good value.  The supporting acts were You Am I and Jet.  We bought the obligatory concert shirt...$45...hmmm.

Brekkie at Ikea

OK the bargain breakfast OF THE CENTURY would have to be Ikea.  $2.50 for this vegetarian breakfast. Scrambled eggs, baked beans, tomato and two hash browns.  And if you have an Ikea card you get coffee for free.  Love it!  And the non-vegetarian one was $2.95.  

Ikea...Swedish for "makes Karina happy".
