Izakaya Yebisu

Although an izakaya is a sake dining place, we did not order any sake. Instead, we caught up over a simple and relatively healthy dinner of sashimi and Oosaka-style takoyaki.



Ordering is rather fuss-free, as orders are done using an iPad. During peak lunch and dinner time, you may have to wait in a queue, as they are pretty popular. Would be fun to visit in a group to try more things on their menu - their tapas-sized serve allows for more space in the tummy for more yummy!

Lane Cove National Park

I am very lucky that in Sydney, I live near national parks. The nearest would be Lane Cove National Park, which if I feel like doing heaps of exercise, I could walk to or when I don't feel like it, I take a bus.

Although I live close by, I have visited the park only twice. For me, the highlights of the park include the weir:

The riverside walking track that had us walking on sand, on rocks, in between rocks, uphill, downhill, on boardwalks:












The resident ducks, brush turkeys and other feathered friends:




The various wild flowers and interesting plants:





Haha, lingzi anyone?
Paku!

And of course, the Boat Shed where boats and kayaks are available for rent:
