23 seconds…

Cadel Evans was only 23 seconds away from winning the Tour de France.  In fact this was one of the closest top 3 times in history of the race – only 31 seconds between the 1st and 3rd rider. The deciding time trial on Saturday was a real nerve breaking experience (lucky didn’t have to [...]

The Art of Islam

Last Sunday we went together with Hassan and Yolla and their kids to the NSW Art Gallery to see ‘The Art of Islam‘. As advertised this exhibition ‘presents the finest display of the arts of the Islamic world ever seen in Australia’. And have to admit we saw many very beautiful pieces of glass, ceramics [...]

New Qantas’ logo

What do you think about new Qantas’ logo? Just a small change but…I’m not convinced as yet and still prefer the old version.

“Paris, Je t’aime” at Govinda’s Movieroom

I finally made my way to Govinda’s Movieroom.  I meant to go there first time almost 9 years ago, but it never happened until last Saturday. We went for a ‘dinner (vegeterian) & movie’ deal.  Have not had any buffet meal for quite a while, and this visit made me to realise how much I value food presentation these days!  This [...]

Well done Vino!

Alexandre Vinokourov – this is guy is amazing! To win a stage with about 60 stitches on his knees and arms. This is what I call a tough guy, overcoming his pain, and never giving up. It’s a shame he could not fully participate in the Alps, as the race could be even more exciting. But [...]

Bug Espresso

In order to fight notorious Sydney traffic and parking space, as well as to be more environmental friendly Luke decided to buy a scooter. The choice was hard, but finally after a few sleepless nights, and unproductive days at work a decision was reached - Bug Espresso. Unfortunately, the next day after the purchase he got flu, so could [...]

The coolest morning in 21 years!

What a morning! The coolest one in Sydney for 21 years! It was 3.7 deg C in the city centre, while my thermometer showed 5.2 C … This probably would make northern European people laugh, but it’s a big thing here in Australia. It’s in the news! People struggling to get rid of the morning [...]

Le Tour de … Crash

Yes, I’m always waiting for July to come for pretty much one reason (as long as I live in Australia) – Le Tour de France. This makes me occupied for good 3 weeks, helping not to notice too much how short the winter days are, and how cold it gets at night. For 3 weeks I [...]

First time

There is always a first time for everything! I’ve just managed to set up my own blog! Was thinking about this for last few weeks. After all, this is a great tool to keep in touch with people living far away from me… Will see how well I can cope with this task. There’s a [...]
