I got a new phone! The Samsung Galaxy Note, yes, it's GINORMOUS. When I was talking to a sales rep on the phone, he asked me why I wanted this device, and I was like "um, because it's huge?" He said that was fair enough, although I could tell he thought I was a weirdo. Anyway, it's very exciting because I am finally free of Apple's evil grip. I'm not the kind of person who constantly wants to get a new phone and with my iphone people were always surprised that I had such an "old" model - but it was less than 3 years old! I had my old Sony Ericsson brick for at least 5 years and it was still going strong until it was smashed with a hammer. I plan to keep this phone until it falls apart.

Thank Cthulu, Instagram is Android compatible. The Vivid festival in on in Sydney now, which means pretty light projections and displays all over the city. I didn't even get to see the projections on the sails until my third night of work - this year is creative, but not as visually appealing as in previous years.

Working at the Bennelong Bowlo bar besides Brigitta (tee hee alliteration). I dressed in my little old lady Chipster gear for the occasion. No, those glasses aren't prescription - YES, I'm one of those people. I actually require prescription glasses and I never wear them. That's why I'm such a road hazard.

The Customs House is the star of Vivid this year, it's so awesome, with it's game-like animation. And these customised rickshaws are beautiful, I love seeing them floating through the Quay.

Okay, I'm a marketing student and despite knowing all the evil tricks behind packaging and advertising I STILL FALL FOR IT. I bought this overpriced bottle of apple juice because a) "organic" and b) pretty, minimalist packaging. I'm such a sucker.

Rob's dad makes the prettiest, tastiest food. I love his Hasselback potatoes and his meringue. 


  1. Wow that's one massive phone, haha. I really want a phone which I can use instagram with, but my current contract doesn't run out til the beginning of next year!

    I went to check out Vivid last night, it was awesome. I didn't really "get" the opera house one, but the one on Customs House is AWESOME!

    1. If a phone didn't support instagram it would seriously become a reason for me not to buy it!

      Yeah, the Opera House one is kind of boring. Which is sad cos last year was so colourful and photogenic.

  2. i went to vivid last night! a friend of mine was DJing between bands at the opera house so i went along. unfortunately by the time he was done most of the light displays were turned off, but i did go to the clock for almost an hour. are you working for the festival?

    1. Awesome, maybe I served you! I work the bars. The clock for an hour? I was there for 15 minutes and I thought that was a long time. I did have to sit on the floor though...
