Claim your ring dome!

The water has evaporated out of this one just leaving the star flitter

Aromatic smoked duck, melt-in-your-mouth braised beef and heavenly mango prawns. The celebrations toward Christmas are just as good as the day itself. Thanks for the amazing meal Von and Andy!



Shake 608: Jelly days

December 4, 2011

Claim your jelly dome filled with sharks!

Recovering from a stomach bug has left me a little out of action lately, so it feels like a droopy jelly dome day.

Here are a couple of examples of why it’s bad to stay indoors for too long:

You paint the magnet your mother gave you so it looks a bit more like you and the Hubs...

You hassle the cat for entertainment so he tries to get out of your reach...

Let’s hope for a healthy December with some warmer weather eh?

Shake 601: Still celebrating

Shake 584: A tribute

November 10, 2011

Claim your flat Melbourne tram dome!

Don't know who it's from but it cost $3.50

Since we’re nearing the end of the daily documentation, I thought it was time to pay tribute to those that didn’t quite make it. Whether it was a lack of sturdy packaging or my mischievous cat, these domes came to their end. Thanks to everyone that made the effort, there’s still a special corner on the shelves for them.

Domes no more...

Claim your Christmas cork!

A little bit of Friday Christmas cheer anyone?

I told you I have a lot of these. Happy Friday, kon-be!

Claim this insert-your-own-photo dome!

The Hubs and I tend to spend too much time in front of computers, so we took advantage of the fine weather to enjoy a little of our local coast. We started at the base of the zoo in Mosman and walked along the coast from Bradleys Head past secluded Taylors Bay to the very popular Chowder Bay and onto Balmoral Beach. There’s so much to admire on this 2.5 hour journey: the view of the Harbour, the diverse flora, the fauna warming themselves in the sun, and an array of cafes with water views on the way for the weary. It was a gorgeous way to spend a Sunday.

Claim your Centenary dome!

*Sigh* Why are Mondays always so hard?

Claim your Bangkok tuk-tuk!

Makes me miss Bangkok...

We’ve only just passed the first week flagpole of October and I’m already 3 domes up, it’s going to be a good month, I can just feel it! To all you mates on the road, my one request: remember, no domes in hand luggage. If we’re going to make it to Shake 600, they all need to survive the trip home!

This dome reminds me of a smell – the smell of Bangkok and that fun street food.
