KO’d!

ko
KO’d!

Cacia’s main reason for flying to Sydney was for her best friend’s wedding, which was last night. As expected, she partied up, hard! So hard that she’s been ill all day (exorcist style, poor thing!). So, here’s a shot of the girls, KO’d!

Monday Fundays

hunter-st-laksa
First stop, Malay-Chinese Takeaway on Hunter St. for a bowl of arguably the best Laksa in Sydney.

laksa
SO good. I’m allergic to chilli (I sweat profusely when having even the slightest amount), but I can eat this no worries!

gear
I then did a HUGE shop for winter wear (all will be revealed soon!). I finally got myself some SUPRA Skytops! I’ve wanted a pair for so many years! We went to The North Face flagship store to buy a jacket but they literally had nothing at all in stock in my size. Not one single jacket, thermal wear, NOTHING! So lame as I’ve wanted a plain North Face jacket for as long as I could remember.

jupiter-ascending-premiere
Later that night we checked out the Australian premiere of Jupiter Ascending (by the Wachowski Brothers) at the IMAX!

popcorn
Free popcorn and drinks!

cheeseburger
Not wanting to eat a heavy meal, but a bit peckish, we downed cheeseburgers at McDonalds. Jess modified her cheeseburger by asking for it on a steamed bun and damn, so good!

matcha
Then matcha from Chanoma Cafe, so awesome.

Spent Monday Funday buying a shitload of gear for extremely cold weather. Can’t say anything right now, but all will be revealed soon enough! Later tonight we checked out the Australian Premiere of Jupiter Ascending at the IMAX. Was cool to score tickets to this! Won’t give out any spoilers as it’s not out for a couple more days yet, but it’s a wild ride that’s for sure.

I love goodies in the mail!

Got this nice care package in the mail this morning from Pretty Shady, an initiative which aims to inspire young Australians to be part of the generation that stops skin cancer, one summer at a time.

So I missed BANKS tonight, but my bestie Jess is in town and she got me a ticket to see (experience!) FKA TWIGS. F U C K . W O W . What a sexual monster. Massive presence. The way she moves and loses herself on stage is almost otherworldly. So good!

More LYNXPERX

lynx_hair_products_packaging
Came home from Luddenham and this metal box was at my doorstep.

lynx_hair_products_mia
Mia, having a good sniff!

lynx_hair_products
Enough hair goods to last me a year, easy!

A few posts down I mentioned getting a lovely care package from LYNX. Today I came home to another package. The goods once again came in next level packaging, last time there were 2 wooden boxes, this time around the goods came in a very impressive metal box which unfolded to reveal hair products, which I totally intend to use!

B’Day boy Eddie at the ready.

Eddie’s Instagram is one that I actually love following, check it out (you’ll understand what’s going on in this picture!): http://instagram.com/laweddie

steak_como
Finished off with a great pub meal at The Historic Como Hotel.

como
Lovely place, shame about all the power lines!

Celebrated Eddie’s B’Day with Clay Shooting yesterday. Have never shot a gun before (was inevitable, right?!), was mad fun. I loved it!

I got there a little early, and walking around the car park seeing so many guys with guns out just felt so surreal. Seeing guns on picnic tables, guns everywhere! Shooting and hitting targets was actually easier than I thought it would be (I was prepared to not hit a thing!). Recoil wasn’t bad at all (was worse in my mind), though it was funny watching it catch a few people off guard! Ejecting shells is mad! Smells so good too! Highly recommend it for anyone who’s never had a go, we all paid around $100/head and they use competition bullets made in Italy, considering they’re about $1.50/$2/bullet and you get 40 or so shots, that’s great value!

Haircut at Shinka

tomo_haircut
The mullet was back, in full force, so I had to book in somewhere to get my haircut. Previously only Mimi at DJ’s cut my hair (I cut my own hair, and she’s the first hairdresser to cut it since I was 15 or so!). Mimi’s in Japan though, so Nanami put me on to her personal hairdresser, Tomo at Shinka in the Galleries. Tomo was awesome, the venue’s light and bright and damn that head massage! Highly recommend!

RIP Beach Aquariums

10555068_10152565236878259_887531953_n
Goodbye Beach Aquariums.

My dad’s old aquarium shop in Bondi Beach has shut it’s doors for good. My Dad left it back in the 80′s and gave the business to my Uncle John who’s been running it ever since.

Amazingly, over the years John never did anything with the shop, he basically just ran it and never cleaned or maintained it. I remember playing in the little rock garden in the front of the store as a little kid. That painting on the glass was really vibrant once upon a time!!!

Sad, but hey, it had to happen. Bondi Beach is being overtaken by hipster cafe’s and the rent has gone through the roof over the years.
