Who’s says there’s nothing to do in Perth?!

The creative scene in Perth has been a buzz this week; with pianos in the streets, emerging jazz musicians killing it at The Ellington, Perth’s original swinger returning for a jaw-dropping hip-popping dance spectacle! And last but not least Jarrad Seng‘s captivating photography exhibition ‘a l l t e r v a t n’ opening the much anticipated MYRE project. Tonight’s creative indulgence was The Ephemeral Project at Spectrum Project Space. What a way to be inspired at the end of a day at a desk!

Outdoors Anonymous

Okay, I have an addiction…to the outdoors. Or more specifically, the fun toys that come with outdoor activities. It started with my bike. Then last weekend I had an intense urge to go camping to escape the city. And this weekend I bought a new old…can you guess…surf board 🙂 It was too stormy to test out today so I’ll have to contain my excitement until next weekend. At least this will deter me from other outdoor distractions…for now 😉 Continue reading “Outdoors Anonymous”

Architectural Happenings in Perth

Did everyone else really enjoy Open House Perth? I had a great weekend, visiting different buildings and exploring parts of the city. It was wonderful to see so many members of the public out and about, checking out different places too. And this was in bad weather – imagine how many would have been out in fine weather? All the volunteers at all the places we went to were great, and seemed to get everyone through easily and happily, even when getting close to the end of the day on Sunday, when I’m sure everyone must have been exhausted. Really great event. My only complaint maybe that I didn’t have time to see everything! But at least I have a few to check out next year. Some of my pics from the weekend:

Front Page Nation

Look who’s on the cover of Virgin Australia’s inflight magazine this month. Burma is possibly the hottest travel destination in South East Asia this year. Blame this on the political revolution that saw a shift from military to civilian government, the inauguration into parliament of Nobel Peace Prize laureate and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, and the related – if not consequential – lifting of sanctions, wiping of debts and abolishing of key economic restrictions. I am happy with these positive, although slightly overdue, developments for the economic growth of the country, however, I wonder if the country will be able to withstand the side effects of tourism.
