Breathe in people, do you smell that? That’s the peak hour buses starting their regular timetable again, It’s the exhaust fumes from the cars that have been exploring coastal freeways instead of city bridges, and tunnels, it’s the cologne and perfume of people hustling and bustling their way back to work for the year. And it smells horrible.
Well while a lot of you have dusted off your suits, jeans, dresses… or whatever it is you wear to work, i’ve already been back for a week, and 2 days (yes I went back to work on the 2nd of January). What better way to throw myself into the year, than working like a pack horse, to get the first 3 months of SS15 designed and put into work before the whole of China closes for Chinese New Year.
Working long days, not getting home till very much past the latest of late dinner times has resulted in extremely low to null activity online and extremely high to unhealthy levels of late night carb intake, not to mention the predicted fall out from holiday feasting.
Fear not, there’s nothing a baggy playsuit can’t hide…
…queue segway into next blog post.
But first, here’s to a happy, healthy and productive 2015.

Black Betty BBQ round 2.
This time we feasted on a smorgasbord of pork only BBQ as we celebrated our fat, delicious friend, the pig, with Black Betty’s Original Pork Party.
With nothing but pork on the menu we were treated to a selection of Smoked Pork Belly, Pulled Pork, Maple Glazed Ribs, Char Sui Pork Neck, Crumbed and Fried Pigs Tails, Chorizo Sausage, Bacon Beans and Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese. Of course we ordered all of it, which resulted in around 1.4KG of BBQ for 3 people. That’s not including the Bacon Beans, Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Kale and Edamame Salad, slaw and Brioche buns.
My favourites were the Char Sui Pork Neck, Glazed ribs, Sausage and the Mac ‘n’ Cheese. I could’ve done without the Smoked Pork Belly, because really, what is pork belly without the crackling?
Make sure you try Rita’s Hot Ass Sauce with your BBQ, it’s not the hottest ass i’ve encountered but it was tasty.
After we stuffed our faces full of meat, cheese, sauce and beer, we made the short drive to Brewtown in Newtown for Cronuts and coffee.
We chose 3 cronuts – Chocolate, Original Glazed and Passionfruit for a “lighter option” to quote the server. Light it was not, but delicious, it was.
Sunday will now officially be known as the day of pigging out like a big fat pig.
See what I wore while pigging out here.
