CHINESE AUSTRALIA DAY

Here is a quick photo diary from the Chinese New Year Australia Day celebrations at work on Monday.

Nat announces herself “the token aboriginal” [HER words NOT mine!] while she decorates reception with the flags she made painting with cotton buds and face wipes cause she didn’t have any paint brushes.

Sam scoffs a few Twisties after we lay out the Aussie part of the spread – the majority of which was junk food.

Barbecue Shapes, Cheezles, Twisties, Larks Distillery Apple Liqueur [that we drank in Cava], Tim Tams, Cherry Ripes, ANZAC biscuits [as featured in The Booyah Cook], Milo and Lamingtons.

Kingaroo made Chicken and Black bean, Noodles and Spare Ribs and some other stuff that I can’t remember. Some of the best ribs I ever had.

And here I am [as photographed by Sam] scoffing an ANZAC in front of our celebratory display.

A shame I didn’t get a picture of Hayley accepting the Australian Souvenir Tea Towel which was my present to the office for accepting an Australian into the fold or of Lauren who was dressed in her Chinese dressing gown for most of the afternoon as part of the celebration.
