Tidbits For Nibblets and Google Love

G’day mates! How ya going?

Clearly, things have been quiet on our journal here but they haven’t been THAT quiet at all. We’ve got some eventful adventures to share, so bear with us. When we aren’t caught up with projects and assignments, we’ve been seeing friends and chilling out. We can’t wait to write up some proper news for you so stay tuned.

Until then, here’s a few little misadventure for ya!

I brought along my Skullcandy headphones on assignment and when I was just putting them on, one side broke. I wasn’t even being rough with it at all! The big poofy ear snapped off and it’s barely held together by the wires. Luckily, it still works, it just doesn’t contain the sound or cancel noise for obvious reasons. I’m bummed out about it because it hadn’t even been a year since I bought it and I was kinda hoping it would last much longer as I’ve been slumming it with $8 dollar ear bud headphones  for ages before deciding to upgrade.

Well, this misadventure was kind of a bummer, eh? I wouldn’t want to end it on a sour note so guess what!?

Jason and I will be heading off to Sydney at the end of the week! Yey! He will be attending Google’s DevFest 2010, Sydney Australia and I get to tag along. Don’t you love it when things work out? Even more when work and play are one and the same! Hot stuff, I’m super stoked and Jason, even more so. He even got himself a new love, the HTC Desire. Its very name evokes hot, fiery, flames of lust and in my case, jealousy! He hasn’t been able to tear himself away from his new mistress.

So there you go, quick updates to fill your stomach. Speaking of which, it’s dinner time!

Until next time, sprinkle hearts!

Brisbane City Farmers Market

G’day mates! How ya going?

I have been keen on looking up local events happening in and around Brisbane, especially when there are so many going on. It’s a good chance to see more of the community than the usual tourist attractions.  I often check out to see What’s On, and partake in the awesomeness.

Farmers Markets in Brisbane City

As a freelance graphic designer, running errands during the weekday allow me the opportunity to enjoy the day, streets and shops without the manic crowds. As much I like to power through my day with work, breaking up the day to visit the grocery store or pick up a bubble tea have become welcome treats to stretch out and stave off cabin fever.

Lettuce for $2 Spices

Recently discovered, Brisbane hosts a Farmer’s Market every Wednesday from 11am to 6pm at Reddacliff Place. They have a gamut of market stalls selling various meats, seafood, cheese, nuts, fruits and vegetables. They also have some delicious baked goods, healthy snacks, and pineapples!

Five grain rolls Healthy chips Kellys assorted bon bons Dried fruit snacks

These would be great for Jason, he’s been asking for more healthy snacks, except for the assorted bon bons.

Delicious macaroons Small macaroons for $2, large macaroons for $3.50

Now these treats are more my style. I didn’t get any  during my visit but the next time I do visit, these macaroons will have a date with my tummy.

Buckets of fresh cheese Buckets of more cheese

Oh I’m in cheese heaven! I was a bit intimidated by them actually that I didn’t get any. Any body here a cheese aficionado?


I told you there were pineapples.

Frozen yogurt with fresh fruit

I will gladly part with my coin for some cool, fresh fruit deliciousness.

Sausage king

It’s the sausage king! He commands me to buy a sausage.

I am happy to oblige your royal highness.

It’s very awesome to see this kind of thing take place, especially in the heart of the city. This is just one of the many things I am getting to know and love about Brisbane. Another one is their many green spaces throughout the downtown core.

Until our next adventure, sprinkle hearts!

Short Walk To Bubble Tea

G’day mates! How ya going?

Jason and I were pretty stoked to find an apartment within the Brisbane CBD which is close to his workplace and pretty much everything else that we would need. It only takes a short walk to anywhere. Here’s a few shots of our neighbourhood on my way to get my fave, Honeydew bubble tea.

It’s been a long time since I had to use the payphone but I do remember how it works. I have used it a couple of times since our arrival to get all my paperwork sorted.

These guys are open late and offer delicious pizza and shwarma wraps. I haven’t tried their “Fish and Chips”.

It’s certainly a very short work to reach the supreme, mega mall known as Queen Street Mall. The stretch of the mall is likely longer than the distance it took to get here.

In case you’re wondering (just like Jason was) about what is ‘Dick Smith?’, for our Canadian/US readers, it’s the same as a Radioshack/Best Buy/Futureshop/Circut City. JB HI-FI is another competitor in Australia to Dick Smith.

Hungry Jack’s is the Australian equivalent of Burger King, the food tastes a bit similar but the menu has a few differences and I am already forgetting what Burger King tastes like.

Yet another entrance to The Myer Centre, one of many complexes attached to the labyrinth that is the Queen Street Mall.

Success! I have reached and obtained my precious Honeydew bubble tea. Writing about this makes me want another one.

Sprinkle hearts and bubbles!
