193-195 Pitt Street Mall, Sydney NSW 2000
Free love is all around
I've often been accused of being so cheap I'd attend the opening of an envelope so when I found out The Strand Arcade was giving away free Kikki.K greeting cards and Haigh's Chocolates it was a no brainer. Especially if the ladies from Breakfast with Audrey were also going to write the card for me — how lazy can one be. After scoring my card and chocolate I spotted a Cupid across the road near the Apple store on George Street. Being too early for Mardi Gras he certainly stood out from the crowd giving away Mills & Boon novels with his two lady assistants. A freebie scored again! Heading back to work through Martin Place the Guide Dogs were on show. Free love for all just by looking at the puppies — they were so cute. Occupy Sydney seem to still be holding on to their camp outside the Lindt Chocolate Cafe with their own Valentine's message although I'm not sure if the guy proudly showing off his t-shirt saying 'Dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians' will score him some extra love. At the end of the day it was time to head to Cotton Duck via Hyde Park for a Valentine's Day dinner. Along the way there were FREE HUGS offered by Khodor and Crystal — I wonder how many people they put a friendly smile on that day. Lots of couples sitting on the park benches exchanging gifts and gazing into each others eyes. Cupid was certainly at play today.
