Pre-Xmas drinks catch-up with Rachel & friends (8th December 2009)

Caught up Rachel and friends at Leuven Belgian Beer Cafe for a few pre-Xmas drinks after work today around 6pm. This was the last time the group will see each other before us globe-trotters fly off to various countries for our year-end holidays. So very exciting! There will be lots of travel stories to swap when we get back in the new year!!

James came by as well and we shared a Hoegaarden Mosselen, a 1kg pot of mussels steamed in Hoegaarden (Belgian beer), curried cream, apple and coriander, served with a side of frites and mayonaise for $18.90. YUM! I wouldn't be able to finish the whole pot myself so it was really good I had someone to share it with :) The others too had other mussel dishes which look equally yummy but I couldn't fit anymore - too full!

Left the gang around 8.30pm to meet up with Jono and friends who were having dinner at Lone Star. Have a fabulous holiday, everyone - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance! Jono's so sweet - he organised a group of workmates together to celebrate Pooria's birthday, watching a show at BATS theatre followed by dinner together. Pooria would have just gone home after work and not do anything special for himself so it was really nice of Jono to make Pooria's birthday feel extra special this year :) Happy Birthday, Pooria!

Tis' the season to be jolly - my calendar is filling up with Christmas get-togethers!
