"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

Dinner w Andrea, Miranda & John @ BodeGAH!
If you are ever in Sydney, arrive early as they are busy & take NO BOOKINGS!
Also say hi to the lovely Sarah (blonde 50’s BOMB SHELL) & Elvis (yes that is his name) & the boys in the kitchen!
Family & Friends day @ my Niece’s School fete.
It’s obvious that my Sistah & MeerCat have scarves & WristRaf in common, whilst my Nephew has replaced R_D with MeerCat ;)
What is it with good friends that have good timing. I rarely share my b/fast sessions with anyone other than my Sistah, Niece & Nephew - after I have my 30 minutes ;)
But this morning was one of those that good banter would be most welcome as I was getting depressed.. Reading the pre-match articles for tomorrows game - Australia v South Africa ;)
* nice surprise to notice that she is still wearing the Bottega leather & SS ID bracelet
Cigar divans - even in a country such as HKG the laws are getting tougher & tougher for establishments to to have cigar rooms that also serve alcohol. So much so that most will not admit or publicise that they do have both, they will have one or the other.
So for now we enjoyed the rarified confines where one can have a conversation whilst enjoying a cigar & an “Old Fashion” the old fashion way.. Away from the throngs of MostExerent Boom worth babes as we needed to “talk” not “gawk” or be “gawked”. So behind 3 unmarked doors we talked & smoked played board games of a different kind..
Very appropriate for a meeting of ASHIN like minded men from The Armoury (http://www.thearmoury.tumblr.com/), The Ascot Chang (http://www.ascotchang.com/tailor-made-shirt/Home), The Colonial (http://www.thecolony.tumblr.com/)& The Guido.. Think of this as the next wave..

Last cawfee in SYD for a month..
* did you know that some cafes have private rooms for..
My good friend “RED” has this ability to contact me to catch up when I’m either floundering or in need of a break.
What’s better than a sunny crisp Sunday afternoon?
A ride to have cawfee & a bite with a good friend.
Not sure if “sausage rolls” are common outside of the Antipodes or the UK, but here it is hard to say NO to a roll or pastry or bread of some kind from “Bourke Street Bakery”..
* I RATE Oscillate Wildly much MUCH higher than Tetsuya..
