My chorus The Festival Statesmen performing Josh Belperio (the conductor)’s arrangement of Over the Misty Mountains Cold from The Hobbit! Performed in Elder Hall as part of the Aus-Aca 2014 Acappella Competition this past weekend.
Yesterday I finally had the privilege of meeting my girlfriend’s mother while she visited from her home in Tasmania.
We met up in North Adelaide for lunch at Beyond India with the three of us, plus my girlfriend’s Aunty and a friend of hers.
The restaurant was beautiful and had a great selection of vegan and vegetarian food, which I enjoyed, as did my girlfriend, who returned from Melbourne on Monday night declaring that while over there she had made the decision to go vegetarian.
We had some good conversations, getting to know each other, as well as discussing veganism, somehow I ended up making a good impression at the same time as advancing their outlook on consuming animal products.
After lunch, my girlfriend and I took her mum back to her place, where she was staying last night. We talked for another couple of hours or so before heading out to dinner at Zen House - continuing to make good impressions both of myself and of vegetarian cuisine.
Overall, it was a very lovely day.
