Had a lovely date at Bondi
Oh, I discovered to my UTTER DELIGHT this morning that I’ve finally hit 44kg!! Happy day!! I could practically hear the angels singing when the number flashed up on my bathroom scales 😉 I’ve stagnated for ages at 45kg as all the jogging/cycling was making me gain muscle, which meant I didn’t get to see any results. So it’s really rewarding to FINALLY see the weight go down. I’ve been feeling rather chubby lately so this comes as a huuuge relief. I’d like to go down another 1kg now, that’s my next goal 🙂 Good timing.. as tomorrow morning we’re doing the Asics 8km walk (fingers crossed for fab weather!!). It’s technically called a “walk”, but I’m hoping lots of people run, as I definitely intend to!

Anyway, a celebration was in order because of the weight loss. So what better way to celebrate by eating some more?! Lunch was at Kam Fook, which we were keen on as we hadn’t had yum cha in yonks. They’re famous and often touted to be the “best yum cha” in Sydney.. and it’s not hard to see why. I prefer this Bondi Junction branch, as it’s more civilised and nicer-dining, whereas the other branches are a bit cramped and scummy. Thankfully, the trolley-ladies are pretty pleasant and don’t force you to get a dish from their trolley every time they push it past 😉
We wanted a really light lunch and so didn’t order much, but we were totally satisfied and impressed with the 5 dishes we got. Everything was crisp and fresh and hot, and we were very pleased with the free packet of tissue paper they gave, haha! More expensive than other more simple yum cha places (~$35 for our 5 dishes), but so lovely that we’ll be back.
Kam Fook is totally packed for lunch every weekend
Siew Mai – dumplings with prawns and mushrooms, with garlic chilli sauce
Prawns in pastry with sesame seeds
Deep fried wontons with sweet & sour sauce
Chewy ball thingys, with chicken and mushrooms
Mango & cream pancakes
We also watched X-Men 3, in the Gold Class cinemas! 😀 Chris scored the tickets from work, as recognition for something he did.. err.. no idea what. He always gets them, so I told him to work harder so we get more – haha! The seats are really plush and soft and they serve you drinks and food, which is excellent. I really enjoyed the movie.. great effects, though I don’t see why so many people had to die?! I still liked it though.. and I’m looking forward to the new Pirates of the Carribean movie coming out 😀 Too exciting!
The nice area at the Gold Class cinema
I adore chocolate shots – pure warm liquid chocolate… ooooerrr!!
A weird photo of me – caught eating 😉
Anyway, we’re meeting up with Chris’ best friend back from high school… we’re going out to the pub next door for dinner and beers. YUM :)~
