After parking we walked to Perth Station where we met our friend Vina. From there we walked to St George's Terrace a couple of blocks away, and along the way I snapped photos from Perth's illuminated buildings.

At Brookfield Place, the 3 of us stood in front of the main facade admiring the Circus "acts", when our other friend Mena called to say she had just finished work and was ready to join us. She works just down the road, so she met us a few minutes later, and then we went into the courtyard through a narrow lane to admire the rest of the Winter light show.
There were loads of people and both adults and kids were delighted with the light show projections whose theme was "The circus", by Electric Canvas.
Brookfield Place is Perth's 2nd highest building at 244mt (801ft) high, located in St George's Terrace, and apart from office space, the surrounding areas offer cultural experiences, art exhibitions, festivals, curated dining and shopping.

The "UV Spaghetti" delighted the kids who twisted or braided the fluorescent cords.
The "Mountain of Light" by Angus Muir was beautiful, with perspex blocks in the shape of a mountain changing into various colours.
The various restaurants in Brookfield Place had extended festival trading hours, kid friendly menus and for the most cost conscious there were food trucks. One of them caught my eye with the name "The good, the bad, the hungry".

Jose was keen to eat Japanese food, and our friend Mena indicated Jaws Sushi in Hay Street (a pedestrian area), just a block up the road.
It was our first time in a sushi train restaurant, where plates with sushi and other Japanese food comes past the seating patrons on a rotating conveyor belt and you just pick what you want.
Plates were different colours which indicated different prices, and in the end the waitress just adds up the prices depending on the colour plates you've got in front of you.
We thought the food was delicious, and if we wanted something in the menu that wasn't coming by on the sushi train we could just ask the chef in the middle and he would order from the kitchen somewhere behind the wall.

City shops close at 9pm, and it was 8,45 when we left the restaurant just in time to walk a few metres down the pedestrian area to Geláre to eat one of their delicious waffles, well just 1/2 a waffle 😉.
And so ended our lovely evening with friends.
