Yesterday was my 29th birthday. I had such a magical day. I woke up at 6am to a cup of warm coffee and a mountain of presents from my lovely husband. James Kochalka shirts, Hot Toys Adam West Batman and this radical Killing Joke jacket from Black Milk just to name a few. (Stay tuned for a birthday haul video). After eating way too much cake I got dressed in my entirely Batman outfit and headed out for birthday shinanigans.
First stop was a cafe I have always wanted to visit called Monk Bodhi Dharma. It is always hard eating out as a vegan. The one meal I find the hardest to eat out is breakfast. There are not many vegan options at most places- just toast with veggies ect. Monk Bodhi Dharma is like a dream. I had over 15 full vegan breakfasts to choose from. Liam had the apple pancakes with cinnamon icecream and I had the mexican beans with almond ricotta. Holy moly people. Not going to lie, but that was the best meal I have eaten as a vegan.
After eating way too much we headed to Art Boy Gallery to check out the Riddle Me This? exhibition. Over 40 local and international artists celebrating 75 years of the caped crusader. It was so rad to see my friend J-F's Joker dart board and bat mobile paintings. That guy works so hard and it always shows in his work.
These two pieces are by the incredible Ryan Hall. They are made entirely with paper. Such a talented guy.
After our morning out I headed home with Liam to eat copious amounts of my birthday cake. This year we chose the Pumpkin Spice Cake from Mr Nice Guy Bakery. A pumpkin pie flavoured cake filled with chocolate chips and topped off with whipped frosting. It was a bit too delicious and after my third piece I got really sick and had to lie down.
I woke up 4 hours later feeling much better, but sadly I had wasted a lot of my birthday sleeping off a cake overload. I decided to relax for the remainder of the afternoon by reading some of the comics I picked up from work earlier.
I want to thank you all for your well wishes and gifts. You have no idea how special you made this birthday for me.
