IM's Life [一期一會]

カテゴリ:Life in Melbourne( 306 )

Even I am not in Melb. anymore!

I found a group 0n Facebook is very interesting~
It called "Melbourne is better than Sydney"~
and there are bunch of reasons why~
Even I am not in Mel. now~ I am still in love with this city~

I copied reasons they showed up on Facebook here:
- Better and cheaper food
- Nicer people. Sydney people can be rude!
- Has an arts and entertainment culture (Sydney doesn't!!!)
- We host the International Melbourne Comedy Festival, Grand Prix, Moomba and various other festivals
- Our CBD is easier to navigate
- We have trams and not lightrail
- We have Australia's SECOND best university - the University of Melbourne, ranked 22 in the world! (NOW BEFORE ANYONE DISPUTES THIS, PLEASE REFER TO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Melbourne where the ranking of University of Melbourne was given by Times Higher Education Supplement)
- People come down to Melbourne to shop
- We hosted the World Swimming Championships
- AFL comes from Melbourne - much better than that NRL crap
- Our Lord Mayor is John So. Everyone knows that he rocks!
- Sydney is the most polluted capital city in Australia! (Source: "What's good for you")
- Own experience with people with anger management problems coming from Sydney
- Melbourne has better drivers - Sydney drivers have anger management issues (generally, Sydney people are just angry, see above - people who SLAM audit files in rooms and books on desks in an office environment, isn't that right?)
- Traffic is better in Melbourne
- Melbourne has more markets for getting fresh fruit, produce and other cool stuff. There's Queen Victoria, Preston, Prahran, South Melbourne and many more!
- Melbourne is grid layout, north east south west. Sydney is a nauseating rollercoaster.
- Fashionable, friendly. funky, fun, vibe, bars, parks, basically how ugly is George St? How beautiful is Collins St?Adds to our AWESOME nightlife
- We don't have ugly beach riots like Cronulla!
- We also have the national champion football (Melbourne Victory) club... and the countries greatest high school, aptly named, Melbourne High School (also not forgetting MacRob for the girls)
- Better architecture rather than relying on the Harbour and Opera House for everything!
- We have the biggest shopping complex in the southern hemisphere - Chaddy!
- Crown Casino kicks Star City's ass!
- Cheaper booze
- FASHION!
- We have the Eureka Tower - tallest residential building in the world!
- Oscar winner Cate Blanchett comes from Melbourne! (and MLC)
- Public transport is so much damn cheaper!
- We have the Aus Open and Kooyong Classic, which kicks Adidas international tournament's ass :P
- Worst coffee ever in Sydney
- Melbourne doesn't have a stupid monorail!
- More expensive accomodation in Sydney and property in general
- Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival time, not to mention the Melbourne Cup!
- MCG is a much better stadium than SCG
- Well endowed men - note I am ONLY putting up your suggestions so feel free to argue this one with me
- Really great bars
- Monopoly Board which features Melbourne
- Melbourne also has the tallest office building in australia - depending on who you believe - either 120 Collins, Rialto or 101 Collins - they are all taller than any buildings in Sydney
- 7 out of the top 10 Aussie companies have their HQ in Melbourne....BHP, Telstra, ANZ Coles Myer, NAB, FOSTERS
- Melbourne had the first ever cricket test match
- Bigger agricultural show
- The Melbourne Cup and really awesome Spring Carnival
- Bigger Fashion Festivals (Melbourne International)
- Melbourne hosted the first sitting of parliament, before Canberra was established
- Melbourne also has the best fire-twirlers in Aust
melbourne is the sporting capital, all the best sporting people from around the world come to our city
- We were the capital city of Australia before Canberra... They've never been and never will be!
- We hosted the Olympic Games first... They can never take that away from us hahaha
- People go to Sydney to visit, but to Melbourne to Live
- Sydney was designed by criminals, Melbourne by Engineers and Architects
- Melbourne, along with Vancouver, the world's most livable city.
- We have distinctive seasons in Melbourne and get to wear layers.
- Melbourne didn't produce Lara Bingle - so where the bloody hell is she now?

711-仙流日

好像很久没关注过仙流日了~
同人也是半年才去收一次~
也许是因为SD同人界没有以前那么兴旺~
又或许只是自己没有那么热衷了~
不过这2个小孩始终在我心里的~
我也只看这2个小孩的同人不是~
当我们已不是17年华时~
回过头看到的却是依旧停留在17岁的SD少年和当年的那片湘南海滩~
每到711就会想听光良和曹格的那首"少年"~
希望这2个孩子能永远活在17岁~
长大未成人~

新世界七大奇迹诞生

2007年7月7日~再经过了热热闹闹的评选后~
传说中带有"草根"气息或者说带有"商业气息"的新世界七大奇迹的评选结果在葡萄牙的里斯本揭晓了~
长城以投票数最高的身份成为了新世界七大奇迹之首~
因为本次活动是由瑞士百万富翁Bernard Weber发起~所以并非学术性的评选~联合国教科文组织也不承认此次的评选结果~不过全球有9000万人参与了本次投票~还是具有一点说服力的~
在这个特殊的日子诞生的七大奇迹~还是值得回味的~

新评选的世界七大奇迹分别是:
中国的万里长城 公元前220-1644年
巴西里约热内卢耶稣基督雕像 1931年
秘鲁马丘比丘废墟 公元1460-1470年
墨西哥奇琴伊察金字塔 公元前800年
印度泰姬陵 1630年
约旦佩特拉城 公元前9-公元40年
意大利罗马斗兽场 公元前70-80年

能吃是幸福的~

因为前天发生的一点小意外感叹下能吃好吃是很幸福的呢~
答应了当事人不说出来的~所以具体发生了什么蠢事情也就不说了~
不吃就没有力气做事情~食物是一切力量的源泉~
所以能吃的时候就要多吃点~不珍惜食物的人就是傻瓜~

新一代自加热咖啡罐~

今天在超市发现了一样很有趣的东西~
Self Heating Can的咖啡~有多种口味的~
晚上游完泳回到家后就喝了~反正咖啡对我没作用~
操作很方便~而且真得很热也~价钱也还OK~比咖啡店里的稍微贵了点~
不过它的优点就是无论在哪里都可以用~开车时也超方便的~
然后按着包装上的网址去了官网~目前好像只有美国和澳洲有的卖~美国可以邮购的~
d0017766_0525735.jpg

这个就是我今天喝的~不过包装上有点不同~
因为澳洲是由Perkett代理的~
图是从官网借的~所以是美国版的包装~
官网首页上也有段录像解释Self Heating的原理~
