White Night Melbourne

After missing out on White Night last year, we were keen to make it this time. White Night is the one night in the year when almost the whole city of Melbourne is closed to pedestrian traffic only and various artists use landmark buildings around town as their backdrop for their light projections. I don’t…

We remember them

Today is Remembrance Day. It is on this day the hostilities of World War I formally ended. In fact, it was on the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month“. We will do well to remember. This photo was taken near the National War Memorial in Adelaide.

Boerewors

On the weekend, at a friend’s birthday party for their daughter, we ended up manning the BBQ by virtue of the fact that we were just standing next to it. This can happen a lot especially if you show even the slightest interest. Because the next thing you know, you have the apron on and…

Tesselaar Tulip Festival

Its been absolutely years since we last visited Monbulk for Tesselaar’s Tulip Festival. Located in the Dandenong hills about an hours drive from Melbourne, it is a great days out. I don’t know why we haven’t been back for so long. It seems to have fallen off my radar until we heard it on the…

He’s home

After rafting, cycling and hiking for three weeks and summiting Mount Kosciuszko, the boy returned yesterday with his group of fellow hikers. They looked a motley bunch getting off the bus with all their belongings in large garbage bags. Clearly glad to be home but richer for the experience it was hard to tell who…

Melbourne Street Art

Last weekend, we decided to put on our walking shoes and walked the lane ways of Melbourne. Usually, this means shopping or hanging out in the many cafes as Melbourne’s lane ways are quite famous for small quaint boutiques and great aromatic coffees. However both of those options were shelved for another day as what…

My Blog has MOVED

Fellow bloggers, friends and visitors, Welcome to my new blogsite! Over the last week, after some major hiccups, I finally succeeded in moving my blog to szeweyskitchensink.com, a new domain with a new title. Why did I chose that title? Well since I started this blog, I have been writing about almost anything and everything…

The Orange Army at Port Phillip Bay

I listened in amazement to my friends at lunch. Crabs were invading Rye Pier. Hundreds, maybe thousands of them. What in the world are they talking about? Can it be possible? And what’s with these crabs? Have they gone loony? Then when I saw the photos, I was sold! I dialled Peter’s mobile and said…

Back in KL

Last week, we had a flying visit to Malaysia to support my mother-in-law who had back surgery done. Thankfully it all went well and she is now recovering at home and sending us updates via her new Ipad. (Yes, you can be a geeky nerd at any age.)  Whilst I can’t speak for myself, Peter…
