Sydney Festival First Night + Photos

Last night I went to the Sydney Festival First Night. Crazy stuff going on.

First we went to this quirky japanese restaurant near the entartianment centre where you order off a screen not through a waiter. Heaps of fun. And then you can tell the progress of your order - if it is ready and coming towards you or if it is still being made. We ordered lots of tasty things - takoyaki balls (octopus), octopus pancake, weird deep fried cheese, sushi rolls, tempura vegies, sushi roulette (one is completely filled with wasabi and you can't tell which) and deep fried tofu amongst other things. I can't remember the name of the place but is near cold rock and you go up stairs.

Then we went and looked at stuff in hyde park - cool lights, smoke machines, music, acrobats and an enormous balloon which changed colour.

Photos of me and my friends below :) (I'm the one in the purple dress)

Everyone should have a think of going next year :) Though it was very crowded.

Dinner sounds divine - and I love that purple frock {how did they choose that balloon to coordinate so beautifully with you!}

Haha. The dress was really cheap from target last year. THe balloon was often a yellow colour as well.
