I can be spontaneous! (and I can spell it too)

Most people who know me well, know that I'm not exactly the most spontaneous of people. Andrew can usually identify a restaurant by the dish that I always eat when we go there (butter chicken, udon noodle soup, wrapped pad thai etc.) but last Saturday night was a deviation from normal Jess behaviour.

On Saturday, I got my hair cut, coloured and blow-dried in the morning. At about 5pm, after an afternoon of uni work, I thought "I'm not going to waste my hairdo on a night of uni work!" and decided that we must go out. There is a new restaurant in town that I wanted to try so I informed Andrew of our plans for the evening. A conversation with Sue revealed that she and J were heading into town for a movie and were also thinking of eating at the same new restaurant (coincidence?!). And there you have it! Plans for a dinner out with friends without even really trying.

Chef's Gallery is the new restaurant we all wanted to try. I had read about it on GrabYourFork the other day and there was only one reason that I wanted to go there. They have these amazing little Piggy buns that you can have for dessert. You get two piggies in a serving. One is a boy and one is a girl - she is wearing a bow. So cute!

They also have pumpkin pastries. We originally tried these in Shanghai and have never seen them again. The detail on these desserts is amazing.

We seem to have been the only table that received two girl piggies, but really we weren't complaining. The girls are much cuter and that ribbon is oh-so-cute and detailed! The pumpkins are awesome too.

Hi Helen! Thanks for the restaurant recommendation. It was worth heading out for the piggies. So cute :D

I loved the collective squeal the table gave when the pigs arrived. Pigs are now my phone screensaver :)

well, the girls squealed. I don't think the boys did.

Very cute! Can we get photos of the new hairstyle too, please? Surely it was the pigs who squealed?
