World’s Longest Catwalk hosted by Ecco & Mia Freedman

Sporting a vintage coat and my woke-up-at-5am-face...

It’s not every day one is flown interstate for a fashion event, participate in breaking a world record, and be wined and dined at one of Sydney’s swankiest restaurants. You may recall me saying that I flew up to Sydney for a day. I was privileged to attend the World’s Longest Catwalk along the Darling Harbour, hosted by Mia Freeman, of Mamamia fame, with a group of real women including journalists, bloggers, and women from all walks of life, no pun intended. The previous world record of the longest catwalk was created in Turkey at 2.69km, but together with Scandinavian labe Ecco, we beat the previous record with our stylish and comfortable Ecco shoes! I was assigned a pair of flats, so naturally the 2.8km walk was a piece of cake, not to mention, we were blessed with an incredible day of blue skies and not a cloud in sight. You can read Digital Journal’s article here, there’s an embarrassing photo of yours truly…

不是每一天我被飞去悉尼,参加一个打破世界纪录的项目,被请去一家有名的餐馆。上个星期我去悉尼一天,参加了由米娅·弗里曼(Mamamia)主持的随着达令港‘世界上最长的猫步’。参加者包括‘真正的女士么’:学生,记者,写博客的,律师,等等。原来的最长猫步记录是在土耳其打破的,2.69公里。这次,由着斯堪的纳维亚鞋牌,Ecco,我们二十几个人穿着Ecco鞋走了多于2.8公里的猫步,因此破了世界纪录!我被分配一双平底鞋,所以走得很轻松。更何况那天阳光明媚,天高气爽,是走路的好日子。你可以在这片新闻上看到报告,和我一张不怎么漂亮的照片。。。

After the walk, the generous ladies at Reprise Media lavished a group of bloggers the most decadent and exquisite 3 course lunch at Black by Ezard. I was surrounded in fine company by the beautiful Miss Chaigyaru, stunning Megan (also a blogger) of Reprise Media, the coolest chick ever, Phoebes of Diaries of Bella, the incredible Kelly Burstow, Be a Fun Mum, amazing Gaynor Alder, The Modern Woman’s Survival Guide, as well as Jessie of The Velvet Bow, Joelyne, The Sydney Girl and Melissa of Suger Coat It.

走完路以后,Reprise Media的女士们带我们一群博客小姐去品尝悉尼著名的参馆Black by Ezard的三顿中餐。坐在我的左边的是漂亮的Miss Chaigyaru,她有个化妆博客,Reprise Media的Megan,超酷的Diaries of BellaPhoebe,丝绒蝴蝶结的Jessie和悉尼女孩, Joelyne;我的右边是母亲博客专家Kelly Burstow,写现代女性的生存指南的Gaynor Alder,  和粉饰的Melissa。

A few of the dishes we indulged in…Succulent prawns on nashi pear salad, Lemon blueberry tart with mini meringues, Honeycrunch with ginger snaps & fairy floss, and my favourite: Ocean Trout on white bean ragout

My raspberry icecream with shortbread and fairy cake enjoyed the Blush Treatment

Thank you so much Reprise Media for having me. This day has been an experience of a lifetime. And I leave you with the sweetest of them all: the chocolate ganache ball with a dulce surprise. Warning: Oohs and Aahs Aplenty…
