Impression, Sunrise

On Saturday, I went down to Canberra with YY and Wai Lam to see the Monet exhibit currently showing at the National Gallery.

Pizza, Duchamp, and a spot of shopping

I have been stressed lately, and my friend told me I needed to take some time out to properly relax in a way that didn't involve Netflix and ice cream, so yesterday afternoon I had some me-time.

I feel like this is one of my favourite views of Sydney, looking back towards the city when you've crossed the Domain. It's underrated.

I came across a pop-up food truck and bought myself a pizza which I ate on a park bench. The weather was cold but the pizza was warm in my lap. I polished it off while watching the lunchtime joggers (I looked at every one of them in the eye).

I went and saw the Duchamp exhibit at AGNSW.

My favourite was the hat rack, it looks like a cute little sea creature.

I swung by the Cos sale afterwards and picked up a replacement striped t-shirt for a good price.

Sat and read in Koko Black for a while - best hot chocolate in Sydney, believe me!

Then I bought another top in Uniqlo - I know it looks like I'm just stress shopping now but I promise I've been meaning to get a striped button down in this exact colour for ages!

After I went home I went for a jog and ate vegetables for dinner. I felt rejuvenated indeed.

Paronella Park

I spent two days up in Cairns this past week. I was up there for a one-day course, but I had the day before free, so I decided to hire a car and drive somewhere. I thought about the Daintree, but I didn't quite have enough time to get up there and back, but on some research I came across this place called Paronella Park, which was about an hour and a half south of Cairns. It was built in the 1930s by a Spanish immigrant, and it is amazing. It reminded me of Quinta da Regeleira in Sintra, which is one of my favourite places in the world.

Vivid '19

Another year, another Vivid! It always marks the start of winter for me, but to my disappointment it wasn't properly cold when I went last night. However, since it was the first night, the crowds weren't too overwhelming. So after a dinner at the new Mary's CQ (which is now on my Sydney recs list), we set out to see the lights.
