Bali Movies

Since we now have a decent internet connection, I finally got around to uploading the movies of the Kecak dance we watched in Ubud, and the scuba diving movies from Tulamben we took whilst in Bali this January.

We got Broadband (finally)

I’m currently running a trial on the wireless iBurst service – I get a 100% signal inside every room of our apartment, and we will also be able to use it anywhere downtown in the city (hello to surfing at Starbucks)..

Furniture update

Only 1 more week of sitting on the floor, sleeping on an air-mattress that keeps leaking air, and wearing the same 3 t-shirts over and over..

Sunday in Sydney

Sarah and I decided to go to “Harry’s cafe de Wheels” this morning – supposedly the best place in Sydney for a genuine Aussie meat pie. On the way we noticed that something was starting up and that a big part of the main streets in the city had been blocked off. It turns out that [...]
