It is amazing how therapeutic it can be to walk through the streets on a grey Saturday morning. The street art and the happenings and interesting architecture is exactly what my scratchy soul needs this Saturday morning. I still have to do my assignment and it is too early for lunch, but the world is [...]

It is really nice to have a Saturday night at home for a change, and just cook and drink wine and listen to nice music. I am making a mini herbed roast lamb, and it is fun. I went to the Melbourne Museum this afternoon. It is definitely worth doing. They have some amazing exhibits. [...]

It was nice to go to the Triennial at the NGV yesterday. I was lucky to catch it before it closed. And I didn't see ALL of it, because it was a pretty huge exhibition, and I had shit to do, but it was still a really nice cultural experience. I loved it. The NGV [...]

‘Sketch me like one of your French girls’ – David Massingham – MICF

Even the title is provocative. A quick search of the internet reveals that there are whole discussions regarding to the deeper meaning of this quote from the Titanic movie. He was hilarious. From Zeke the recovering alcoholic at an AA meeting, who repeatedly blows his quit to the tune of 'Pina Colada', to the spam [...]

It is always fun to come home after a festival and look up the music of the bands I saw. Bashka is a Turkish band, and their music feels so rich on this cosy, rainy Saturday morning. World music on the weekend. It transports me to places I have never seen but only heard about [...]

I am at the Melbourne Museum and I got my cup of tea. It is very refreshing. White Night tuckers me out every time! It is something about the lights, the crowds, the walking. I am supposed to be meeting some friends, but I think I am done. And what a finale! I am sitting [...]

Oh Sydney, how I love you. You are so vibrant and lush and amazing. Breeze, boats and beaches. I know that I am in Sydney because I have walked 19,934 steps today. Hehe. I always walk more in the city, but I am pretty sure that is a record in one day! There are so [...]
