Canberra Home Delivery Food?

By 25 October 2014 9

I've just moved to Canberra and quite like it... except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I've found so far). Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)? In Sydney $12 is expensive. Same goes for Indian food... curries at $17-20 is a rip-off for take away. And why n...

Health and Safety responsibility vs stupidity

By 25 September 2014 11

I was driving along Hindmarsh Drive yesterday morning and noticed the red light camera at the Parkway intersection being fixed.  A guy in a high vis vest up a high ladder fixing the camera with a spanner (I assume) in one hand, as the other held a cigarette.  If this guy falls off, who is responsi...

Floriade Disappointing

By 24 September 2014 22

My first ever visit to Floriade last weekend. It took me longer to find a parking spot than to see all that Floriade had to offer. Seriously, is this Canberra's main event? Others have told me that each year, the flower displays dwindle  and the over-priced food stalls grow. Over-hyped and ov...
