As we've been eating out for quite a while I suggested that we have some home-cooked food for a change. We trotted to Victoria market to get some fresh supplies and my girl whipped up a sumptuous meal for us ..........have to admit that her cooking skills are good but alas, no measurements, all done at her whims and fancies. This is pan grilled Teriyaki Salmon ..... the sauce was DIY!
Salmon Sashimi with wasabi ..... the fresh salmon was indeed very, very tasty and was just right with some wasabi.
Her signature deep fried Won Ton with chilli sauce dip. She folded up the dumplings like a gold ingot! Very meaningful for the New Year.
Medium well steak with grilled tomato.
Rounded up with a Salad ..... Grilled asparagus with mixed herbs, cup mushrooms, bacon and caramelised pecans. I like this, light and tasty.
After dinner we headed to St.Kilda to watch sunset. It was around 8pm and there was quite a crowd there, some with their cameras all set to record the event.
Just as the sun was about to set.
This was my first experience watching sun set (as we are used to having so much sunshine in Malaysia, we didn't really bother about this). I was amazed that it set real fast, in just a few minutes but luckily we were able to snap some pictures. We strolled to the pier side and spotted a crowd there....what's happening? Oh, to watch the penguins coming home to their burrows amongst the rocks and so we patiently waited and waited .....
No flash and no videos were allowed and therefore it was quite tough snapping them. The above showed a penguin waddling up the rocks to its 'home'.
This is the best that I could enhance from the pictures that I took. Can you see the penguin? It seemed quite oblivious to the people watching them .... perhaps they are used to having an audience! It was getting dark, around 9.00 pm and this was the time that they're expected to come home and call it a day.
