Last week, we headed down to the festivites in Victoria Street.
It was fun... but really hot! Summer has finally arrived here.
We stopped for cool drinks (and a cupcake) on the way there.
Ari's super cute cap is from Australian label Rock Your Baby.
It was a birthday gift from my brother. Thank-you Uncle Karl!
My sweet skirt is by another Australian label High Tea With Mrs Woo
It was a rare and extravagant purchase for me. I bought it when I found
out that I was pregnant with Ari (while working as a costume maker.)
It's made from a combination of cotton and vintage silks. I love it to bits.
There was so much wonderful colour and oh, the food...
sweet sticky rice, cane sugar juice, vegetarian egg pancakes,
rice paper rolls, icy watermelon juice, vegie dumplings. Yum!
Ari went on a couple of rides and bought a beautiful new blue
butterfly kite. What a wonderful day we all had in Richmond.
It's New Year in Chinatown this Sunday.
We're looking forward to seeing that beautiful dragon once more.
Festivities run from 10am till late. The dragon awakes at 12.30 pm.
Maybe we'll see you there... xoxo
