Weekend in Photos: 3rd weekend of September

I read something beautiful the other day …

In the bowl of the sky, the sun and the moon are the lamps; the stars in the constellations are the pearls.
The fragrance of the sandalwood is the incense, the wind is the fan, and all the vegetation are flowers…

Makes one wonder…

So anyhoo, this weekend marked my dearest friend’s 21st and we went to Peasant for tapas and cocktails. For privacy reason, I will only share with you some photos from the night (minus the birthday girl – you know who you are and I *heart* you)


Warning: Photo Heavy – should be able to click on photos to enlarge


The ambience definitely scores an A from me…


Just at the table we’re at (minus those people, they were from a different table)
We were on the high chairs.


Made me feel like I was some place else (not Brisbane)


Sis holding the menu… (sis, you’ve given me permission to show your face in my blog! teeheehee)
Like how it’s a blackboard written in chalk.

Now let the food porn begin…


Pumpkin & Goats Cheese Empanadas
(stuffed pastry)


Potato Bravas, Tomato & Parsley
(Sundried tomatoes, by the way – and fried patatas bravas)


Grilled Chorizo with Mojo Verde
(grilled smoky pork sausage with green cilantro sauce)


Warm salad of cauliflower, pine nuts, saffron & raisins


Red Wine Braised Lamb Shoulder with Spanish Onions & Mojo Verde
This lamb seriously just slides off the bone like silk…


Piquillo Peppers stuffed with Vege Paella, Olives & Almonds



A quick shot of my sister and you know who…
We were both wearing MAC Blankety lipstick
(Though I did have it mixed with MAC Snob beforehand, though I ended up just retouching with Blankety throughout the night at the end)


A shot of my ring of the night…


And… me and my mojito…

So what’s on my face that night…
Illamasqua Matt Primer
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (Regular)
Scott Barnes Cream Foundation (Beyond Beige)
Graftobian Cream Foundation (Ingenue / Vixen)

Did I see right... You were wearing two primers?!

@Rin: LOL I better rephrase that as.. Matt Primer on my Tzone area (that tend to get oily) and Laura Mercier on my cheeks (drier areas) so yeah I used 2 but on different parts of my face... (was being experimental)
