Does this behaviour impress you?

There is a masculinity crisis in Australia. Well, that’s what you would think if you had been reading the newspapers in Sydney. The city has seen an increase in drunken violence, resulting in yet another young man’s death. Men, intoxicated and feeling invincible, lash out without warning and without cause. With one punch to another … Continue reading

Hitting the books

Hitting the books

There was a time in my life when I thought that I would never stop studying. Any spare moment was spent buried in textbooks, or feeling guilty because I was preoccupied with procrastinating instead. I can assure you that my room/house had never been so clean. I finished high school and went straight into three … Continue reading

Exciting changes are afoot

Exciting changes are afoot

Sometimes things just don’t go according to our best laid plans. Despite all our best intentions, hard work (you know, blood, sweat, and tears!) and sacrifices that we’ve made, it seems that sometimes, shit happens. In these tougher times, many companies around the world are restructuring and reassessing their operating strategies, my employer included. As … Continue reading

A leg up, or indulgent parenting?

A leg up, or indulgent parenting?

Buying property is always a hot topic at dinner parties. As humans, we can’t help but measure our progress compared to others, just to see if we are keeping up with the Joneses. So the latest news in Sydney’s expensive property market for parents to buy a million-dollar property for their children has the city … Continue reading

Good times through the ages

Good times through the ages

“Eating is cheating”. Back in my youth, this was the mantra for a good time. During these heedless and misguided years, a good time was all about the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol. On an empty stomach, the booze would just addle your brain just that little bit faster. It didn’t matter if you … Continue reading

Eating, Asian-style

Eating, Asian-style

Asians love food. Well, most people love food, but Asians seem to be obsessed by it. I don’t have the statistics, but I’m sure that if you did a survey of food bloggers, there would be a high representation of those from an Asian background. Of the three contributors to this humble site, Christine and … Continue reading

Getting somewhere

Getting somewhere

My days are currently all blurring into each other. Sometimes it feels a bit like swimming upstream. Keeping on top of everything is an impossibility. As soon as one thing is crossed off the To Do list, another two or three things get added onto the end. On top of a full time job and … Continue reading

Taking the good with the bad

Taking the good with the bad

I shaved my legs today for the first time in about 3 months. To be honest, I probably could have gone for another 3 months, but I was geting excited at all this warm Sydney weather we’d been having lately. It was finally time to rid myself of winter hairiness and prepare myself for summer! … Continue reading

Why you should visit America

Why you should visit America

The land of the free.  The home of the brave.  The United States of America is an enormous country, with proud and patriotic people.  Their government may be a bit dysfunctional and is currently shut down, but the country’s influence on the world is undeniable.  Home to the world’s largest film industry*, its popular culture has found its way into … Continue reading

The cruising life

The cruising life

For those that think of themselves as proper, hardcore travellers, cruises are inherently uncool. They are either overrun by greying retirees, or drunken young partygoers. They’re not for people serious about getting out there and seeing the destinations or getting immersed into the culture; it’s all about the journey and the cruising life. If I’m … Continue reading
