MyStery Ball 2010

Help unmask the mystery of Multiple Sclerosis
Saturday 1st May 2010 - GPO, Martin Place, Sydney

The Mystery Events Association Inc. is this year hosting the MS Masquerade ball in the luxurious surrounds of the GPO. Funds raised will be used to keep up the fight to find a cure for this mysterious disease.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the Central Nervous System - the brain, the spinal cord and the optic nerves. MS is the most common neurological disease that affects young adults. The majority of people diagnosed are female and in their early adult years, often in the prime of their careers or family lives.
There are approximately 20,000 people with MS in Australia alone. This incidence of MS is increasing by 7% per year and it is estimated that the financial cost is close to $2 billion.

I wish I was attending this fantastic event, and hope to spread the word - get some more awareness in the hope that we can combat this terrible disease.

The Rolling Stones have collectively been the focus of some great music documentaries - Gimme Shelter ; Shine a Light ; Sympathy for the Devil.
Now it's time for the band's guitarist, Keith Richards to go solo with his own doc. With Johnny Depp to direct!! According to The Playlist .
They got the info from a Serbian website featuring an interview with the actor, who was apparently in Drvengrad last month for the unveiling of a statue in his image, the ceremony...
Can hardly contain myself!
If only he starred, then I could die happy.

Girly things

I am LOVING the new girly inventions you can pick up for a song, from some very enterprising young ladies.

Sick of ruining your brand new heels with scuff marks?
Heel Angels are the answer!
Transparent plastic stips, acting (as far as I can tell) like sticky tape to protect your heels.

At $9.95 a pack - with discounts for the more you purchase it's a total winner!

Next stop is Pink Lilly -

You're looking at the minililly3stack, for all your accesorries, the liploc - basically an elastic band keyring for your lippie(!!) and the bobinosmall to keep your earphones neat and tidy.
For $17 ministack, $19 for the liploc and a mear $5 for the bobino - why not be a lilly fan too!

Annual Bird Singing Contest, Thailand

I love the idea of this, a whole gaggle of Thai gentlemen carousing and discussing the better points of bird fancying.

Bird singing contests are held annually in the Narathiwat province, Thailand between January and July. The competitions are taken seriously and with the caged doves raised on poles three to six metres tall, judges listen to the songs and award points according to pitch, melody and volume.

The Show

Well, I hope everyone had a splendid Easter. I certainly did, even though it was devioid of the usual extended family touches.

I managed to visit The Sydney Family Show, say what? Not the Easter Show, but a fair and free equivilent.

There was the obligatory rides, show bags, markets and kiddy fun. Now it didn't have the sparkle or polish of the Easter show but it was a good day out and a lovely day.

While I baulk at the $30+ entry fee, I do regret not supporting our farmers at the Royal Easter show. I hope you all had the oppertunity to get along to the show, one way or another.
Me & My Chick @ the Show

i like love

Well like my last 'post' said... it has been a while.

A lot has happened, but I will try not to dwell on what has been. I've decided to try a new tact on my blogging. Talk about things I actually like!
Now, I don't think I should restrict myself by saying that I will not share things that rub me the wrong way but I'd like to focus on the better things in life.

It all started with juice. Yes, juice.
Sitting at the airport, hung over I opened this juice which changed my life.

Spring Valley Pineapple and Guava. MMM.

'We've done it. We've bottled summer. There are no traces of palm trees or bikinis, but you will find happy summery fruity goodness and refreshing splashes of water'

Well I think Spring Valley are quite pleased with themselves, as was I.
