yummy!
Today in the morning we went first to Gold Coast to check and oulet. And yes, I ended up buying stuff, hehe. Next we drove to the University of Queensland to see a movie. There was a festival going on and the idea of free movie sounded perfect. That campus was gorgeous, with a pond, beautiful gardens and fountains. It was a special day and there was a band and several food stands. And of course we stopped at one and had some dim sum, yummy!

Around 2pm we drove back home. Some friends would come over for a Pisco night, yay! Would we cook? No! I will be a bartender but not a cook, not that day. So, let's be lazy and buy some snacks, hehe. Yes, I didn't cook, but clean the house and arrange the things, so everything looked perfect and nice.

Craig was saying I was doing such a big deal of this, when his friends arrived and the girl exclaimed things were looking lovely, hahaha. Girl power!

Craig's friend used to be a bartender and had already heard about the pisco. In fact, she knew how to prepare the pisco sour, but wanted to see a Peruvian in action. First we had some toasts with cyder and beer. We were just chatting and enjoying a quiet evening. Later we moved to the piscos. I needed a blender, but we had a shaker. Ok, we'd make the piscos the traditional way and not the lazy one. I had to ask for help for shaking the drinks. Sorry, but I'm not strong enough to do it...

Piscos were tasty! Everyone liked them, yay! We stopped having them, not because we didn't like them, but because we ran out of limes... Yes, they aren't the same as back home, but made a good job. Well, we still have some pisco left for another time. I'd have to visit Craig again in order to make the drink hahaha.

We stayed there just chilling out and enjoying a new friendship. Yay! Cheers to new friends! We already made plans to meet up the next morning :)
