Pauline and I met Cat, Faye, Danielle and Maggie at the Punjabi Palace in West End Brisbane for dinner last night. Cat reckons it’s the best curry in Brisbane and although it wasn’t as good as Little India in Christchurch NZ I’d have to agree with her in terms of Brisbane. The samosas were packed with mince and weren’t greasy like others I’ve had.The butter chicken was enough for Pauline and I to share without being bloated.
The highlight though was when Cat and Faye presented Danielle and I with a signed autograph from Jodie Henry. Danielle and I have arranged a time share agreement similar to how divorced parents share their children. But I’ll probably be happy with the photo of the autograph. 😉
Cat and Faye ran off to go watch the Bulldogs win the Grand Final, while Maggie, Danielle, Pauline and I headed off to Freestyle in Rosalie for dessert. This is a cafe that serves only lunch and desserts so obviously they care about their sweets. Whatever you order gets a huge chunk of chocolate and the appropriate sauce. Our orders went like this:
Pauline – Sticky Date Pudding
Maggie – Espresso Cake
Danielle – Choc Deluxe
I couldn’t eat all the chocolate or the sauce as it was so rich and my stomach started to react to the curry, chocolate and ice cream but I didn’t care because it was very yummy. They also display art at the cafe and you can purchase it if you fancy. We ate our desserts with Gwen watching us. She is called “Gwen swallows” (she had sperm on her shirt according to Danielle).
With bloated and noisy stomachs we got back in to our cars and headed over to the Story Bridge to check out it’s new colours. The bridge’s lights had been changed to pink to bring breast cancer to peoples attention (as if breasts need any publicity). The colour will last for 17 days and joins other structures such as The Empire State Building, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Tokyo Tower and the Sydney Opera House. I was a little dissapointed to see that they hadn’t put pink uplights in to highlight the beam but it was still good. Just a shame the camera doesn’t take good night shots.
