A Day By The Harbour


Recently I decided to commit to a new goal and that is to get fit, fit, fit! No more over-working, over-eating and binge drinking on the weekends (and the odd Thursday night at Palmer and Co) instead i’m determined to start exercising again and start eating healthy balanced meals, none of that toast for every meal crap. In order to fully divulge myself in my new healthy lifestyle I quit my job, yes you heard me I quit my fricken job. I’ve managed to save up enough money to see myself through to the end of my degree (on an incredibly tight budget) and not have to start bartending or working in PR again, at least not for the next five or so months. Other than getting fit, i’m also ambitious to start expanding my blog and the fact that I am not longer working 30 hours a week on top of full time study tells me that I will have plenty of time to go out and create drama and other theatrics to write about.


So, last Sunday The Dirthouse queens and I decided to kick off this new healthy living regime with a brisk walk to circular quay followed by a yoga class in the CDB. Unfortunately we got a little distracted and ended up having a Sunday sesh at Opera Bar – for your information the drink pictured above is merely a soda and lime…with only a hint of vodka I swear.

Opera Bar is probably one of my favourite venues in Sydney, while it can get pretty touristy on the weekends, its still worth trying to grab a table if not for the yummy food but for the cute musicians that play live music under the canopy every Sunday.

Opera bar has an extensive menu which runs throughout out the day up until 10pm and considering the location ( I always try to avoid eating out around Circular Quay as its usually an absolute rip off) the food is really well priced and delicious!

Its just protocol now, whenever food arrives I have to take several mixed angle shots with my fairly large and embarrassing camera. Its for the blog, its for the blog, okay guyyyysssssss.

And its time to dig in, Queen L goes crazy for the onion rings with paprika aioli $10 but to be honest I wasn’t that much of a fan, perhaps its because i’m uber-healthy now and I would really call deep fried onion a super food.

The prosciutto, provolone and rocket pizza $19 was way more up my ally, the base was thin and golden and although the toppings were minimal the flavour combination was insane!


But best of all would have had to be the smoked chicken, asparagus, rocket, orange and radish salad $20, I think that all the girls would agree that there was just something about the dressing and the moist (haha moist) chicken that had us all scraping the plate.

So after a bit of an unexpected feed we decided that we probably better do some form of exercise (especially since we didn’t even walk to Circular Quay).


After a sequence of unusual lunges and awkward stretches we came to the conclusion that we were quite frankly just embarrassing ourselves in front of the Harbour Bridge…Yep, just laugh it off ladies…

And then out of no where…LOOK UP! we were distracted once again and then BAM!

Hey Mr. H. Hanson where did you come from?


As the sun began to set and Queen B ย began giving me looks likes why is Mr. H. Hanson crashing our party once again??…


We realised we secretly liked being in the company of all our men, Queen L had Mr. H. Hanson obviously, Queen B revealed she was secretly wearing TM’s cologne and I had the absolute love of my life, the Sydney Harbour Bridge looking over me as we sleepily made our way back to the taxi rank.

Oh Sydney how I love you.
