Save The Regent!


This is the beautiful and majestic Hoyts Regent Theatre in Brisbane. It was built in 1929 with a gothic style interior.  It is one of the only styles remaining in Queensland and the State Government is allowing a developer to tear it down to make was for yet another unnecessary office block.

It's an absolute travesty that they are allowing what little historical buildings we have left to be destroyed.  Please go to http://www.debritz.com/str/ and sign the petition to Save The Regent.

Ron Mueck at GoMA


Pretty sure you'd be wanting a C-Section for this one!  The Ron Mueck Exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art was AMAZING!!  The attention to detail was incredible. Body hair was perfectly placed, the way the skin fell, and muscles sat was so incredibly life like.  I think the artist is a genius!  The perfection in which all of the sculptures were to scale, whether they were large or small, was brilliant!

Delicious Delectables


My bestie Bernice (aka @Paxochka) is seriously the best cook in the world!  She can whip up a batch of brownies or jam drops in a flash - no recipe, no measuring.  I, on the other hand, am a miserable failure when it comes to baking.  But I do try :)

A couple of weeks ago we had a reunion of sorts of all the beautiful girls I used to work with at a boutique PR firm.  We had brunch at my place with all sorts of delicious delectables, like cheese  and tomato croissants, bruschetta on sourdough, Danish pastries and Bernice made these delightful mini quiches with sundried tomatoes.

She inspired me! This is my attempt. Sadly, they weren't as light and fluffy as hers...but they were edible.
