I just wanted to share something I stumbled across. At school we have an old TV with a custom computer attached that is running some digital signage software. However, this software is terrible, clunky and not user-friendly at all. It creates too much work.
This year I was unsure what to do for Ash’s birthday, I was searching and searching for an experience to do. Finally, I found it! A cooking class, but this was no ordinary cooking class; it was one run by refugees. The company was Free to Feed and is a non-for-profit run here in Melbourne to help set up refugees and asylum seekers with jobs.
There were choices about what type of cuisine you preferred, so as we eat a lot of curries I picked Sri Lankan.
The evening was run by a refugee named Niro who travelled for 3 weeks on a boat, ended up in detention centres on Christmas Island & in Melbourne to finally be here taking this class. His story was incredible but his happiness and positivity was something amazing.
He taught us to cook a few meals from Sri Lanka (his own recipes), the best part was at the end of the night we all sat down and shared the meal.
School holidays have finally come! I feel there are a lot of things on my to do list so it will be nice to spend this break at home.
I have a goal this break, recently I’ve been acquiring a few new accessories for my Nikon V3 camera. I bought a new lens, battery, flash and GPS Adapter for it. Continue reading “School Holidays Time”
It’s funny, I was watching the release of the new fandangled iPhone X and Apple Watch 3 along with everything else. I thought for a minute, well I wouldn’t mind the watch, it has some pretty cool features. In that, it can receive calls without needing to take my phone. I could now leave my phone and wallet at home, welcome to the future! Continue reading “new devices”
Here are a few of my favorite panorama photos that I have taken, along with a few stories about them!
is coming has come! Normally we’ll head to Mt Donna Buang, but this time we want to take Poppy (our Pug). So after a bit of googling, I discovered Mount Maraget (half way between Marysville & Buxton (maps link), this hidden gem is amazing.
Another weekend and another trip, though this one was for longer than a weekend!
We went to Perth for 11 days, 4 of which we spent down south in the Margaret River region. Margaret river is one of my most favourite places there are, to me it’s the perfect mix of beach, forest & fun. There are so many things to do, see and eat regardless of your interests and budgets.
We picked up a little Airbnb and travelled around by car. Continue reading “Margaret River, Western Australia”
What better thing to do on a long weekend than a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. It was nice to be able to get away for a small break and see some new scenery.
We left Melbourne after work and proceeded towards Horsham, which was to be our destination for the night. The following morning we left bright and early in the fog (that reminded me of silent hill) with our destination as Hahndorf for lunch.
Today I had the need to just go and do a bit of a weights session instead of my normal Crossfit Classes, so I went to Iron Addicts in Ringwood. All I can say is the plates are pretty cool! Captain America plates….
Sidenote: Pretty cool gym, and it was a good workout!
