Sneaker Freaks Swapmeet at Section 8

Sneaker Freaks Swapmeet
Section 8
27-29 Tattersalls Lane

Got there at around 6.30, almost immediately met Emma from SFF which was then my entertainment for the rest of the night! Some lovely kicks, but nothing in my size... Standouts on memphis' stand, wishing that Mark and I could swap feet sizes for a little bit! Waited for what seemed like an eternity for mafia to show with her bag of tricks, but unfortunately nothing for me... Still, a good night, good fun, and lots of eye candy... I love Section 8 in Summer and was truly surprised at how warm it was for a chily night...

Supper Inn

Supper Inn
15 Celestial Ave
9663 4759

Went to Supper Inn last night before the Sneakerhead event at Section 8... We cruised the whole of China Town before settling on the tried and tested... Went in as soon as it opened so it wasn't packed wall to wall as it is usually, but for some reason even with most of the tables empty they sat a family of 4 next to us, and without the overall chatter noises we could hear their conversation as if we were all on the same table... I know you don't go to the Supper Inn for the ambience and decor (it really is ugly), it just felt a bit much to be with this family...

To the food... I ordered the pork with seasonal vegetables, which was pretty damn good, the thicker pieces of pork were a bit dry, but otherwise it was good... Mark ordered the vegetables and fried rice, which he loved... Lucky, as there are very few vegetarian options... Especially as Mark is quite particular about what he will eat... To give testament to the food Mark agrees that he would go back knowing that he only has one option...

The Workshop - Melbourne

The Workshop
Level 1, 413 Elizabeth Street
Melbourne, Australia

Due to my general hibernation status I had never been to The Workshop before, but thanks to Guy and Genos birthdays I had a good reason to go... Its a great intimate venue, probably fits in more people then it feels because its a bit separated (by fake and real walls) and has some pretty chunky decor... I liked the overall vibe of the place, and although the DJ was a bit all over the place (to quote Lachie 'playing the one smash hit off each record'), he did live up to the old school hip hop party classics which the night called for, just not well...

AFL: Geelong v Collingwood: MCG

Geelong V Collingwood

So this was my first adult football game, and Marks first ever... I have a vague memory of going when I was 8 or so, but cant be sure of details... It wasn't as cold as I expected which was a pleasant surprise... Geelong members (of which we were seated with) were seriously outnumbered, though after winning 9 games in a row I at least expected to be dazzled by the close score... This was not to be... Geelong were slaughtered... I was however dazzled by the violence, so much tackling, body slamming etc... That kept me on the edge of my seat more then anything else... After our adventures with baseball and basketball in the US I was hoping to like it more, while it was quite entertaining (until the gap between scores became so wide I completely lost interest) I can't see it becoming a life choice... Big up to Dana and Trav for sorting us out with some dope seating, felt like we were on the field which was cool...

Trying the 'real' football next week Victory vs Juventus at Telstra Dome, maybe that will suck me in...

Nike - Air Stab QK - Runnin’ Gunnin’

Nike - Air Stab QK - RunninGunnin

Now I know I keep posting kicks I'm not hot on, and I'm not hot on stabs, but these are pretty nice... Featuring elephant print on parts of the upper and infrared cement print on the heel guard, I am actually quite happy to look at these... There is a matching t-shirt set for release too, end of May start of June is the reported release date...

Mothers Day mk2

Mothers Day mk2

I know people keep mentioning that I put sooo much food on my blog, but the fact is I love food (have you seen my arse?!?), cooking it and eating it... When my Nanna died when I was a girl, my great aunts put together another mothers day for my mum and her sisters, and in turn me and my cousin... So the Sunday after Mothers Day all of the blood related women on my Nannas side of the family get together to eat lots of food, and spend some time catching up etc... This was todays effort...
