Breaking the silence

Can’t believe it’s already March! This year is whizzing by! I hope you haven’t been fooled by my recent radio silence, for the lack of posts in no way reflects lack of activity. Keep an eye out on the ‘Upcoming Projects’ tab and future posts.

For now, I leave you with a snap of a secret rainbow I spotted on my lunch break today. It was a fleeting burst of colour dancing above a concrete jungle. A reminder to always look beyond your immediate surroundings and appreciate the small pleasures in everyday life.

Hear hear! I’m already planning my hit-list for 2013.

This year I made it to:

  • Parliament House
  • Council House
  • Perth Concert Hall
  • Scene Apartments
  • Bivouac (Canteen + Bar)
  • My Favourite Spaces (Exhibition at the State Library)
  • Gresley Abas (Architects) + Augmented Reality (Development Solutions)
  • Woodhead (Architects)

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.
