Cycling on holidays

I'm currently on holidays in Europe. Just came back from a bike ride on the streets of Berlin. I just have to write down here that I have never felt so safe riding a bike as I have in Berlin!

Shopping by bike - Museli from Aldi, Butter chicken and Aloo Patak edition

My boyfriend only likes the museli from Aldi with apricot (not the fruit and nut). The Aldi at chatswood is usually out of the Apricot one but the Aldi at Edgecliff had lots! That's 7 bags of museli in that basket :D

We're planning to have butter chicken and aloo patak for dinner tonight…

Cycling in Melbourne

Went to Melbourne for 4 nights and just got back. It really surprised me how well cyclists and drivers can get along… no BEEEEEEEEEPs, no "get off the fucking road"… people just went along with their own business going where they need to go.

I also noticed that there were lots of bikes and bike stands all along the main roads in Melbourne, and they have really good separated lanes for cyclists along the busier roads. A lot of the bikes had baskets and/or panniers and people rode in…

Shopping trip with the bike - potato salad edition

My boyfriend's mum brought over a bunch of recipes a few weekends ago, including one for japanese potato salad (yum!) We tried it out for dinner last night, and this morning, I decided to upscale potato salad production so I've got lunch to take to work for the rest of the week.

This is a picture of the shopping haul + my bag in the basket…

Shopping by Bike - now from Beecroft

I went shopping by bike for the first time today since moving to my new home in Beecroft. Luckily the nearest Coles is very close to my new place, and as it is situated at the top of a slight hill, it was easy cruising all the way back home when the bike was loaded with groceries :D…

Riding to Ryde @ night time

1. Riding @ night time is the best. It's cool, nice breeze, and I have the cycleway/road all to myself :D

2. Being able to ride my bike wearing my favourite dress is great :)

3. Epping Road is pretty hilly. I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to get there and back home :)…

6 days until Grad Ball

After 3 weeks of continuously sitting on my butt studying for exams, it's time to lose some weight before the grad ball.

On Thursday, I rode from Greenwich (home) to Mascot (mum's), via the Harbour Bridge and through the city on the nice cycleways :)

Friday was the return journey, riding from Mascot to Central Station,…
