The Christmas in November – 2008

November 20, 2008 •

So yeah yeah, I guess it’s finally happened. At approximately 6pm today (or so I’m told) I left the world of a 21 year old and joined the ranks of a 22 year old.

It feels a bit weird… it’s the birthday after my 21st… which I suppose means the first birthday of being an actual adult by all Australian standards. I was wondering if this was a bad thing until a good guy on my MSN set me straight and informed me that all the fun actually starts from here on. 😀

Since I can barely remember what happened on my 21st birthday (I can probably chalk that up to the rampant drinking, but also to my lack of a blog at said time), I’m going to pretty much write down everything that happened today. 🙂

Ode to Taka’s Kitchen

Taka's Kitchen Katsu-don

Taka's Kitchen Katsu-don

Okay…. the introductions have been done. Down to business! 😀

So…. although I already have quite a bit of stuff I’d like to write about, I was trying to figure out what I should write about on my way to lunch today. At which point, I thought, since I pretty much go to the same place 3 days a week, I might make a quick post ranting about how great it is. 😀

Taka’s Kitchen is a small-ish Japanese restaurant near where I work, up a small alleyway place called Shafto Lane. I was introduced to it by a fellow co-worker who ended up often going there pretty much everyday! 🙂

They sell the basic array of Japanese set meals including fish, beef, chicken, tofu as well as udon noodles, tempura and of course a huuuge array of sushi.

Anyway, the greatest thing about Taka’s is that for the amount of food you receive in one sitting versus the price, the value ends up extremely good hehe. For a large meal, the price is often around 7 dollars, and for small, usually 5. Conversely, checking out the other Japanese shops in the area, they are often 2 dollars more for half as much!

Hello World!

Hi everyone!!

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it, I’ve jumped on the blog bandwagon! 😛

It’s been a pretty long time coming, but it’s finally come. Welcome to my blog! 😀

I’ve been wanting to set up a blog of my own for quite a while now, mainly as just a place I could potentially come back to and reflect upon in years to come hehe. But mainly due to other commitments as well as lack of l33t t3ch skillz and resources, it hasn’t been possible for me to set up a personalized, standalone blog for myself up until now. But now that’s all in the past hehe.
