Work Lunch #9 – Don Don’s bento box and more! 

 

Don Don’s, 26 Francis st, Melbourne CBD

Tasty food served with lightning speed? Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that you can get it at Don Don’s!

Infamous for serving your meal faster than you can put away your change. And yes you’ll get change from a $10 note! – their bento box and rice dishes are under $10 🙂

We ordered:

– a bento box filled wi h beef and chicken plus some rice, salad and even prices of fruit! Entree, main and dessert all in one dish!

– sukiyaki beef with rice

Service: super fast

Ambience: casual

Details:
A favourite of the office folk, Don Don’s is a place you can repeatedly rely on to serve you delicious Japanese dishes that will keep you within your weekly lunch budget!

Warning: it can get addictive and you’ll be wanting to try everything on the menu or stick to your favourite.

The animals are ALIVE at Watergardens – Free school holiday fun!

Easter school holidays edit
School holiday fun this April
This time of year is always one of my favourite long weekends as I get to spend time with family and also to reflect on the new gift of chance we have been given.
This year we attended special masses all week and Daniel also made his first Easter hat for their Easter hat parade at his childcare centre. He was so excited and proud to show his grandparents his creation and it was a nice opportunity for us to do some crafting together at home 🙂
For those of you who still haven’t been on the animal adventure at Watergardens, make sure you head down there for some free family fun! You can also snap a photo with a panda, create your own animal mask and win an overnight stay at the wonderful Werribee Zoo!

“These school holidays, don’t miss out on seeing the first ever Animal Adventure Animatronic Display at Watergardens!  
The display, features lions, tigers, zebras, macaws and, gorillas, to name just a few, is a fun-filled way for children and adults to learn more about these intriguing animals. You will have the opportunity to get close to a zebra’s stripes, hear a lion roar, spot a giraffe standing tall, see the sparkle in a tiger’s eye, and listen to the calls of macaws and much more.

In addition to the animatronic display, Watergardens Town Centre will host an animal craft workshop, where children can let their creative side go wild, and make their own animal mask to take home. There will also be an animal cookie decorating workshop, as well as an opportunity to take a photo up close and personal with a panda.”

#FBF – My first dance performance post partum


rewind at St Kilda Festdance pic

So I found this post while cleaning up my drafts folder and I can’t believe I hadn’t published it!

These pics are from Sunday Feb 10th 2013, my first time performing again with Rewind Dance Crew after giving birth to Daniel.

It may not seem like that big a deal but for me it was a goal I had as soon as I found out I was pregnant!

And it was a lot of work.

I was exclusively breastfeeding at the time and the hubby and I had just started to get our sleep back when rehearsals began. It was worth all the effort in timing feeds, late night rehearsals and sweating my butt off to see smiles on the crowd’s faces again and share good times with these crazy cats.

IMG_1519 I love performing and Rewind has taught me so many things and really gave me the chance to come out of my shell (would you believe that I was the most shyest person on the planet before Rewind came along? And that may even be an understatement!).

I hope that one day if any of my kids are interested in dancing they’ll be lucky enough to be part of a positive and friendly crew they can share many exciting experiences with.IMG_1527IMG_1532

So grateful for this hands on hubby 🙂

This year’s St Kilda Fest will be on Sunday 14th of February and Rewind will again be taking over the DanceZone bringing you some new sets and performances by some of Melbourne’s finest dance crews.

The event is free and kid friendly so mark your calendars and we hope to see you there!

Check out these other dance posts to get you in the mood to boogie on a Friday night! Here we back up danced for some Filipino artistas and here we had one of the most fun nights out with the outrageously Jabbawockeez.
