monday melbourne roundup - new zealand edition

Phew, well ahoy thar my earties! A quick trip over the seas to New Zealand and it was M A G I C A L. Doing some brief research before I went over, I stumbled on Moiras fabulous blog An Auckland Vegan and was super happy to eat at A LOT of the places listed on there. NOMS. I did all my other favourite things while travelling, lots of bush walks, swimming in the sea, op shops and EATING (and theatre). So without further ado...


book club - emmas house

emma made the MOST AMAZING VEGAN CHILLI AND CORN BREAD IVE EVER EATEN. Which was great because I hated the book so much it pretty much balanced me out. We read "The World Beneath" by Cate Kennedy. Sick to death of hearing middle class white Australians whinge. the end.

body electric @ NGV Afterdark.

NGV after dark was PACKED as well, apparently its like that ALL the time. swoon fase Melbs. Love yer guts.

wil enos - thom pain @ silo theatre - Auckland

Wil Eno is my equal first favourite play wright (equal with Mark Ravenhill) and by some sheer stupid luck my friend loved the actor who was playing Thom Pain (Oliver Driver) and booked us tickets without my knowing. I saw the companion play to this earlier in the year (Lady Gray) and was COMPLETELY blown away. This was equally as good. Oliver Driver is stunning and it was difficult for me being in first row not to storm the stage and lick his face. Auckland, completely UTTERLY impressive.

A great review which encapsulates why I love Wil Eno so much

whitanga/coromandel/cathedral cove/auckland - north island NZ

  1. Ha. Thanks for the shout out. Lisa put me on to your blog. I'm loving going through the archives, getting some great cooking ideas. Btw am having a 1970's inspired mock meat extravaganza dinner party in about a months time if you want to come - will email details. On another note; is there anything your man Douglas Coupland can't do?
