I was invited to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar in Mount Lawley.
Now this wasn’t just a regular Crust Pizza outlet… this particular store is run by popular food blogger, Michelle and her husband Joe, who not only knows her food, she know how to throw a good party.
There was live music, cupcakes, balloons, and of course, bucket loads of pizza. There was a really lovely atmosphere in the air and the pizza bar was overflowing with friends, family and pizza lovers.
In fact, when I first arrived at the party, I couldn’t get inside because there were so many people there.
As I squeezed into the venue, I bumped into this guy.
Someone said that he was part of the “entertainment” for the evening.
My eyes widened, “They have MALE ENTERTAINERS at a pizza bar??”
Well, no, not that kind of entertainer. No no no. Turns out that he was an artist, drawing cartoon caricatures for the party guests. Phew.
Caricatures! Much more family friendly! What a fun idea! I’ve never had a caricature drawn of me before.
So I waited in line for my turn.
When I finally sat down for my caricature… I suddenly I felt so awkward!
This guy was looking at me intently, my face, my eyes, my chin, and he was busily sketching away.
And it was so weird, I wasn’t sure where to look. I thought that I should at least FACE him, because he was, after all, trying to draw my face. But I went all shy. I didn’t really want to LOCK EYES with him, stare into the windows of his soul and share an unspoken moment with a total stranger.
Anyway, I ended up looking everywhere else but at him.
And I did what I always do when I don’t know what to do. I got my phone out and started to fiddle with it. How lame!
I did take a photo of him.
I posted it up on my Facebook page saying “This guy is drawing a caricature of me!” and asked my friends, “Do you think he’s hot?”
But before I got any replies, it was over!
My cartoon caricature was so cute! Aww and the artist was so kind with my flat Asian nose and wonky eyes. I look cuter, younger and prettier as a 2D line drawing :P
Maybe that’s what happens when you don’t look straight at a caricature artist.
By the time my drawing was finished, I was soooooo hungry.
Thankfully I love a good pizza!
Every time I sink my teeth into a gourmet pizza, my mouth quivers, my eyes roll back and my chest sighs with pleasure. It’s heaven.
This pizza was the Oregano Verdi Base and Parmesan Squares.
It was a “Starter Pizza”, so it’s slightly smaller in size and priced at $7.50.
Omg you must try it. The flavours were so simple, yet it was so so soooo tasty.
This next pizza was the Italian Sausage Pizza, with Italian sausage, bacon, Kalamata olives, tomatoes and garlic, garnished with fresh basil on a tomato base.
Again, it was absolutely delicious!
I stood there in the crowd of guests, and as the wait staff walked by with a plate of pizza, I threw out my arm out like a frog’s tongue and snatched up a pizza slice before they all disappeared.
I ate pizzas until my belly was about to burst.
I don’t usually eat so much wheat and cheese nowadays, but haha this was totally worth it.
