50's fair

It seems such a long time since I went to this the last time. But it has come around again. Not much has changed since last year, but this time I knew more of what to expect and my photography has hopefully improved a lot since the time before. There will be photos to follow, I have posted a few.

Dinner in Cabramatta

it was very very good for a $6.50 meal. I do not know the name of the place. We were in Hughs Street, Cabramatta, and it is the place next to the parking lot on the Station side. The juices were also very good.

Moving count down

There has been a hick up with the loan, which I think has more to do with failure of process. But hopefully it will not impinge on the final settlement.

Steam Boat

I have not had steam boat since I held one at my place in Kallista, oh so long ago. Gun organized it and many of us kicked in with various bits. It was an great day and everyone consumed and enormous amount of food. We finished off with a super rich cheese cake. And the kids gave a great exhibition on how to use the Wii. I had never seen it before.

Penelope Swales

Well, after a long time of not seeing Penelope but buying her CDs, finally I got to see her. Owing to a mix up I did not see her until the show, but it was great to see an excellent live performance.

japanese meal @ Ryo

A small group of us had dinner in Crows Nest. I had driven past this place many times when I lived in Mosman and Cammeray, but never had I eaten there. It was a bit surreal eating in Crows Nest again after all this time. I had a different bowl of this meal. The dish was not hot as it looks like it might be. It was mild and quite good.

A secret event

I went to a filmed event today, but I am not allowed to talk about it until it is shown on TV. On the way I stopped at a lookout and took some photos.
