This is what I got up to on Saturday night:

 | Double layered ice-cream cake | Laughing, eating, face-palming | Friends playing with forks | Overexposed photo of my face | Sitting in the park | Milk shots | Waiting for dinner |  Potato gnocchi | Slow-cooked salmon pizza | Selling glowsticks | Late-night pool |

Spending time with good company and good food = good times. We celebrated my friend's birthday, and- unbeknownst to me until I arrived- mine as well (even though mine is in a week). Suddenly things made sense (why R was being mysteriously keen and why I got multiple urgent phone calls from friends wondering if I was ever going to show up) and at the same time I felt so stupid and ridiculous for moping the past few days and complaining to R that no-one cared about me yadda yadda. BUT ANYWAY.

We spent the day eating, and eating. Somewhere in there were a lot of silly moments like lounging around in Hyde park, being forced to do milk shots, and watching a certain boy walking around with a picture of Bieber on his crotch (?!) like the cool person he is. Also watched the icecream cake melt (icecream and m&ms is seriously the best combo ever) and subsequently bottled the melted cake....to do cake shots. Delicious, I know. We then headed to Eat Love Pizza for a hearty meal, played a bit of pool, and did some general gallivanting around.

And somehow, coincidentally, there were fireworks on in Darling Harbour.

| Better photos next post! |

I really don't think the night could have turned out any better!

Also, my friends gave me a Pandora bracelet with a couple of beads/charms on it including a soccer ball which alludes to how we met (violent soccer game involving too much shin kicking). I was and am still so touched by the thought behind it and solemnly pledged to wear it everyday, which is helped by the fact that I can't actually get it off...

Still, the thought of a couple of guys crammed in a jewellery store stringing and restringing a bracelet because they "had to see which beads looked good with each other" is too cute. I am so blessed to have such lovely people in my life :'-)

And- just quietly- I hate you blogger for being a complete bitch and making me redo this post, after deleting it. 3 TIMES. Really appreciate it.

P.S. I LOVED reading your responses to the What makes you smile? post, so much that they gave me warm and fuzzies and I am contemplating making it a regular thing...? Would love to know what you think!
