Gonna Miss This

During the days leading up to last Friday night, there was a lot of confusion surrounding a party and whether or not several girls and I would be attending. Due to a few different factors, we decided to dress up and go out for dinner instead.

This was my makeup & outfit:

 

Eeleen and  I met up at the bus stop to travel to the restaurant together, on the way we bumped into a couple of guys heading to the party. One of them noted that our outfits were very “ying yang” which was totally uncoordinated, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless. Friends who dress together in complimentary colour schemes stay together?

We were the first to the restaurant, so we set up that impromptu photo shoot in the neighbouring parklands. After everyone arrived, we made our way inside.

Dinner was at Torba in South Bank. It was slightly empty at the start (not a good sign); nevertheless the restaurant was really lovely. It was too dark to take photos of the place but they have images on their website: http://www.torba.com.au/

It didn’t really have the same Gossip Girl level of opulence as it does in their published photos but I still really liked it; as we were a large group we were seated in one of those private booths at the back of the photo.

Also, this is what the place looked at night time (once again, most likely enhanced)

Here’s a photo of me and the gals, with our very delicious food!!

Most of us ordered the same meal – it was actually more delicious than I expected and the quantity was good as well.

For $28, I was very impressed with the portion, especially given the popular tourist-y location. We had so much fun chatting away in our little corner, however we turned into nightmare customers when it came to splitting the bill (Sorry!)

We strolled around South Bank for a bit, chatting about the usual topics, and also about how close we are to graduating. It’s sad because I don’t know how many times I will be able to do this with the same group of people after graduation. Everyone has their own unique paths and it will be difficult to arrange meet ups like this- I think we all felt a little nostalgia for the present moment. BUT ANYWAY…enough of the deep talk and back to the next part of the night: desert!

For some reason, we walked from one end of South Bank to the other and then back again.

How could anyone resist a neon doughnut sign? There’s actually three individual dessert stores joined up – triple the fun! Several of us decided to share tim tam milkshakes which were so amazing that I forgot to take a photo of until it was more or less empty.

Also! They had run out of mini donuts for the top of the drink (it was one of those milkshakes) so we received free full sized ones instead. They were a little too sweet- it was an interesting flavour: lemon and meringue. After feasting on these yummy deserts it was time to go, and we slowly disbanded. IMG_1721

It was such a fun night, I loved dressing up and unwinding with the girls.

See you (very) soon,
