Night Noodle Markets

On Wednesday night, we hit up the Night Noodle Markets in Hyde Park, which are running as part of Sydney Food Festival. I'm not actually into Asian food, but it was a good excuse to catch up with friends.



Er, yeah, my knees.... I got pretty bored waiting for my friends to come back with their food.


Posting this blurry picture of myself because it was the only picture of me from the night.


Had Shanghainese spring onion pancakes, which is totally not the point of a noodle market, but I like them... probably because they're fried. My family's from Shanghai, so I wasn't really stepping out of my comfort zone.




It was a bit too chilly on to sit there all night, so we sat in McDonalds (everyone else got dessert like normal people. I, of course, wolfed a chicken and cheese burger) and talked for a while.

I've been terrible at returning comments, I'll try and get onto that ASAP!

  6. @ everyone - if you guys check the lifestyle sections in your local newspapers and such, you'll probably find that there are things like this happening in your cities. I never really knew about these events until I started taking notice this year!

    Louise - No, I've never really liked it in general! Everyone gets really surprised (especially since I'm Asian), haha.

  7. Looks so great! And I prefer McDonalds food too - much better than the finnish traditional foods LOL. :-D Though I like asian food, or at least rice and that kind of stuff hahaha (rice is totally = asian food, NOT). I'm a difficult person when it comes to food :-D

  14. this is such an amazing set of photos x i love the blur and that prime lens you are using! i just bought one too, but haven't used it yet. it's quite intimidating that it's set at a distance, and i think it forces you to use it differently. and you made it look soo easy! i really like those lanterns too xx

  15. I'm not too much of a fan of Asian food either. They're usually a alot of sweet and sour sauces that my tastebuds aren't keen on.

    Those lanterns look so wonderful. I bet the night had a spectacular atmosphere. :) I've also been rubbish at returning comments, it happens from time to time. Thankfully I'm getting back on track!
