Are you having/did you have a good weekend?
These days I find myself so grateful when Friday night comes around. I like my job, but the combination of work, life, renovations, family and other stuff leaves me feeling very tired by the end of the week. Not physically tired, but emotionally very drained.
I'm going to up the yoga and meditation to see if that will help.
This weekend was full of food and sun.

On Saturday, we hosted an Indonesian dinner at our rental house.
Here's a visual of me fortifying myself with a glass of very un-Indonesian Prosecco:

We cooked a beef rendang, Ayam betutu (Chicken with spices), Kankung Belacan (delicious green hedge-like vegetable with fermented shrimp paste and chilli) and a number of other smaller dishes.
I forgot to take pics of the food before, but here's an 'after' pic:
On Sunday, J, M, D, I and my mother went to Bronte beach for a picnic. Bronte is a small beach along the coast from Bondi - there's a beautiful coastal walk you can do from Bondi to Bronte and beyond.
We often go there in Spring and summer. Even though it gets very packed, it's a magical place.
This is the park at the back of the beach:

We walked along the beach to Tamarama (also known as 'Glamarama'), which is the next beach going towards Bondi. Tamarama is known for its beautiful young visitors, hence the nickname.
Yesterday it was heaving, and as Naomi noted on Instagram, with so few sunshades it's a wonder everyone doesn't get heatstroke or 3rd degree burns!
The water was beautiful, although I must admit that I did not venture in. The water temp was a very brrrr 18 degrees!!
I'm a total wimp and don't swim unless it's a bit warmer than that!
How was your weekend? Did you eat too much like me?
