Christmas Dessert Table 2013, all photos taken by me on my Nikon D60 with a Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens
Christmas for me, has to always be at home. Even though every year in January I always yell out to the world (and in my head) to spend my next Christmas overseas in some exotic Japanese tea house or mountain/ New York Times Square/ Thailand beach etc... my heart ends up being content on spending time with my best friends here in good ol' Sydney.
And why should I leave? Look at the amazing dessert table my good friend Anna and her family created for me and our close circle of friends. As our tradition, we gather up at Anna's house to have a Christmas feast, exchange our gifts, take selfies, bitch about our year and listen to Mariah Carey's Christmas album, no matter how busy we are.
We had home made tiramisu, rich chocolate brownies stuffed with walnuts topped with icing sugar, creamy red velvet cupcakes, fruit tart with custard and we drank our eggnog and champagne.
I gained a food belly after this night and I was in a food coma for days. But in preparation I've been gymming for 6 weeks straight for a night like this. Christmas is my favourite time of the year and it doesn't matter where in the world I spend it especially since the best food is always the type baked and cooked at home. And every year I am reminded on why I am friends with the friends I have today.
