blast from the past


hi all. had quite an interesting time this week. caught up with some friends from the past which has been great fun.

i met up with dave from barclays, for a lunch time hot chocolate. he had been telling me how cold and wet it was in melbourne, and how lovely singapore was. it didnt seem like we hadnt spoken for nealy 4 months.

then, on Thursday, I met Tony, who was on the Thailand trip with us. he came via tokyo, and was glad to be in an english speaking country.... no-one or nothing is in english rude!

then, on Friday night, me and tanya met up with dave and his wife Joss for a meal at his apartment, which ironically, was 2 mins around the corner from where we are living. we had a nice curry take away, and plenty of beer/wine. you can order food from this menu, that collects from loads of different resturants, which is a great idea... also, we had a beady eye on the cricket, which I must admit, I have never taken an interest in before. but as we were doing well, it was not that bad......

felt a bit rough on Saturday, but we managed to drag ourselves out of bed, and down to the IMAX cinema. we watched aliens of the deep which was pretty decent. Tanya admitted she got a bit scared, and closed her eyes through some of it.....$17 well spent.......

sat night, Tony came round to ours to watch our dvd of asia, and then we went out for dinner. it was great catching up, and we have penciled in a reunion next year at his residence in Cork.....

Dinner was great, as I tried Kangaroo for the 1st time.... it has adistinct taste, but it was quite nice. I also had a side portion of biltong, which I miss so much.... i need to find out where they get it.....

We went for a few drinks at an irish bar...forget which one, as there are sooooo many. then at midnight, I sneaked off into an internet cafe, and listened to the saints v sheff weds match....i'm so sad but it had to be done. we won 1-0 by the way!!!

then after that, around 2am, I had a celebratery drink, as most of sydney was still pumping!!

On Sunday, we met up with Tony, his sister and his niece. we went to the zoo, known as taronga zoo. was a lovely day, it it pretty much took the whole day to look around.. as you probably saw from the pics, most of the animals were asleep or lazing around. it was a great day out, and seeing tony again was definately the highlight of the weekend.

gonna have a quiet one next weekend I think, as we need to save some money for when my mum and dad get here. They are here in just over a week.....scarey.hope you liked the pics I sent,

Aaron and Tanya
