A trip to Bali + Ricefields for days

A trip to Bali + Ricefields for days

I love my job so much! I just had the chance to travel to Bali to work on a destination wedding.
I packed Dave into my suitcase and we added a few days onto the trip.

We were in luck when wedding photographer Jo Bartholomew, who also flew in from Sydney was up to take some shots of us!
I love her work. So this is the story of how we somehow ended up having a spontaneous engagement shoot, that we would have never planned to do. I am SO glad we did.

The best little spot and the small things

When we get a day off together and don't have plans, and especially on a sunny day, we love walking over to Paddington and have coffee and breakfast at our favourite little spot:
Tuk Tuk Street Bar! The people working there are just the friendliest and they really like dogs too.
Not to mention the fresh, healthy food, the yummy coffee and the great spot to sit and watch people go by.
Here are some snaps from last time. We thought it really deserves an own blog post.
It's the very small things that make my day, like a good coffee and sunshine and taking some time out of a busy week just to enjoy both. And to make it perfect it will have to be in good company.
David & Dalston you rock my world!
Do you have a favourite cafe to hang out?

What else is new? Dalston comes with David to work in the design office from time to time, he graduated from puppy school this week and at home we made it super cozy with a new desk and couch... and new bed for Dalston too.
We can't wait to show you our new living room as soon as we are finished. It only took us one year and 4 weeks... Well. One step at a time, I guess.

Cabramatta: Sydneys little Vietnam and the West

Besides the all the the pretty and beachy Eastern Suburbs and the cool urban Inner West, there is another very inspiring yet much rougher and very unexpected area in Sydney: The West.
Most areas here are very suburban and while the area has plenty or affordable housing it certainly hasn't the best reputation.
We found many interesting multicultural things to discover spending a Sunday wandering around Cabramatta. The mainly Vietnamese neighborhood, full of fresh exotic fruit, vegetables, fabrics and pound stores. I mean: 87% off!?! This is the uniquest offer I have seen in my life!
By day it was very vibrant and buzzing. It felt like we are actually in Asia.
I had an Avocado shake and we stocked up on groceries for plenty of stir-fries.
Oh food is too delicious over here, we got to watch ourselves before we know it we will double our size ; )
We also got to meet our little nephew Marcus, who is the cutest thing.
I am looking forward to seeing him growing up and playing with him.

Sydney is exciting. I am feeling so lucky and happy about our new little life we started to set up over here. I could write endless happy-lists.
P.S: We now both have jobs and an apartment confirmed! We'll tell you more soon.
Have a great week everyone!
