Our New Roof Garden – Harris Street, Pyrmont

After about 5 mins of deliberation we decided that Point Street wasn’t for us, well for now, and have just signed the lease. We fell in love with this loft apartment which was converted from an old wool factory. Awesome. No longer will I be living in a purpose built apartment. It’s weird I know, […]

Dorota and I have just been looking at apartments in Pyrmont, and have both just fallen in love with Point Street, this is possibly the view from behind one of the apartments we’ve just looked at. Is this going to be our new place? I wonder.

Sydney Taxi Drivers

Grrr. Not sure how to start this post without the sensation of stress running through my veins all over again. Due to my work I have to regularly get taxis around Sydney, and I have yet once to actually make it to my destination without any difficulties. Do I just take it for granted that […]

Sydney in colour, Brian Eno’s Luminous Festival

Sydney is an impressive place. Now imagine Sydney being even more impressive… We’ve had a chance to experience Brian Eno’s Luminous – an amazing light festival, taken place between May and June 2009, using several buildings in Sydney to express the art. It was quite surprising and amazing to watch the Opera House changing colours […]

I’m really not sure on where to start on explaining this stuff. It’s like porridge made from rice, but it’s horrid. I feel like a child eating cabbage.

Dim Sum, sharks fin, birds nest soup and cat sick

Hong Kong dim sum doesn’t seem to live up to the crazy mad rush of a typical mainland Chinese restaurant, but the food here is much nicer. However I’ve just realised half way through eating this dish, which I have no idea what it is, I can’t eat it anymore. It looks like cat sick. […]

Toyota Crown Comfort Taxis

If you’ve ever wondered what the roads are like in Hong Kong, just imagine every car on the road in your country as one of these red Toyotas and squeeze them all into one town. At a guess 75% of the cars on the road around Causeway bay are these red taxis.
