• Q-Eat Order, Fruit Platter and Flight Meals on QF117

    Qantas has a new Q-Eat programme available for pre-selection for international flights departing from Australia. I wasn’t quite curious enough, but Richard took up the online exclusive offer when I pointed out to him that there’s duck! On a flight! Economy class! This was available on our 9-ish-hour QF117 international flight from Sydney to Hong […]

  • Fruit Platter on Qantas Flight QF466

    Evening flight from Melbourne back to Sydney, QF466, after a whole day of inter-state work. The flight was later than I’d hoped and it was pretty empty at the back of the plane. Not the freshest fruit platter I’ve had. I was also pretty exhausted at that point, having been up since 04:30 on the […]

  • Fruit Platter on Qantas Flight QF407

    Sydney to Melbourne short domestic flight QF407; a full flight filled with business people, including yours truly. Special meal fruit platter was still available for order. Breakfast: a predictable small apple, banana and soy milk. I still don’t entirely know why they think people who choose to eat fruits would want soy or to avoid […]

Fruit platter: main platter in bigger chunks than usual with skin and rind; side bag contained small Red Delicious apple, small banana, dried cranberries (donated to Richard), […]

  • Otford Lookout at Late Morning

    Late morning and a very hot spring (the season). Pretty view!

  • Mejico Miranda, Westfield Miranda

    On our new quest to try every restaurant at Miranda Fair, we stopped at Mejico Miranda for dinner tonight, which I was feeling a little ambivalent about. On one hand, I’m not a huge fan of eating with my hands in public; on the other soon to be dirty hand, we do love our spicy […]

  • Awards Dinner Event at Doltone House Hyde Park

    Our company had a table at the Cancer Institute NSW’s 2015 Premier’s Awards for Outstanding Cancer Research (“Cancer NSW Awards”) dinner held at the Doltone House, Hyde Park tonight. We dolled ourselves up after work (which for me really just meant I slipped on a dress), brought our partners along, and gradually regrouped at the […]
