Day with sis

Had the day off today and decided to spend it with my sister, Joanne, who moved down to Melbourne several months ago. Joanne is getting married in May and has been busy preparing for her wedding so we haven't really had much time to just hang out and do stuff so I thought it would be nice to have a brother-sister day.

After a quick stopover for chai on Smith Street, Joanne and I headed over to Brunswick Street for some retail therapy. At lunchtime, we decided to make quick detour for pho on Victoria street before resuming our retail activities, this time back in the city, where I picked up a nice pair of 'everyday' shoes for work. Before I knew it, the day was over. What a fantastic day too! For the first time, it suddenly became crystal clear to me why gay men were put on this Earth...quite simply, to go shopping with their sisters! We had a blast.

Too obvious, but sisters out shopping together.

OMG I love pho. So, soooooo tasty.

I love pho too but sadly I'm one gay man without a sister (or brother, for that matter).

Andrew: Indeed ;-)

EK: Hmmm. You're like the arsty caucasian version of me. I'd imagine a near perfect day would be the italian brekfast at Amici, followed by a walk/tram ride to Victoria Street for a nice bowl of pho.

Victor: Let's catch up for pho the next time I'm in Sydney (or vice versa if you come to Melb).

Victor said...

You're on.

Can I crash the Pho party when Victor's in town?

Also, remember my friend Billy I mentioned in a comment a while back? He's always on the hunt for Melbourne's best Pho http://12eaten.blogspot.com/

EK: Yes, absolutely. In the meantime, seeing as I am ALWAYS up for pho, we can also do a lunch in the more immediate future (and Billy can come too). The same goes for the italian brekky at Amici's!
