May 25, 2013

Our latest Thailand adventure needed to include dinner at Bo.lan. Lex, Em and I had attempted to dine at Bo.lan in 2009. Although we hadn’t made a booking, it was pouring with rain and our taxi driver had no idea where he was going, we decided to make our way to Bo.lan anyway. Little did […]

Flying Fish

Flying Fish, Pyrmont

May 1, 2013

This year I decided to take Dylan to Flying Fish for his birthday. I’d been a couple of times for corporate lunches but Dylan had never managed to get there himself.
