Penguin Bloom

| | Comments (0)

I was quite a latecomer to Penguin the Magpie's Instagram, by which time Penguin had all grown up and there weren't many photos anymore.  And I didn't know any of the back story of Sam.  But I did see the "ads" for the book and thought it might be nice to have a look at.  Then at dinner with EffanC the other week we were talking about it, and I went and bought it the next day.  Beautiful photos, and a touching story that made me cry.

Hungry Buddha

On Wednesday we went along with EffanC and Scott to the Hungry Buddha in Belconnen (where Phnom Penh used to be).  We shared a lamb dish (lamb was a little dry but nice flavours), a beef dish (also nice), a fish curry (my favourite dish of the night - like butter chicken but with fish), and some vegetables (which I didn't end up trying).  As well as various naans and nibbles.  A lovely night (aside from hearing the sad news about Cricket) and we were treated to a spectacular light show as the storm rolled through Belconnen.
