Sydney Reloaded

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

Neo is confronted by an agent in the Matrix's simulation and one can see that the scene was shot in Martin Place, Sydney.

Aujourd’hui, j’ai eu un flash(back).
Dans le film Matrix, le moment ou Neo marche dans la rue (dans la matrice) et voit la belle blonde en robe rouge, il marchait en fait sur le trottoir de Sydney au niveau de Martin’s Place.

Fichtre, diantre et queue de poisson !

Music in the air

20070228 - 06 - Sydney - New shared flat - My Electronic Keyboard

Initiated in the UK and already exported in Brazil, “Play Me, I’m yours” is an art performance sponsored by the Sydney Festival 2009 that will make thirty pianos readily available to members of the public during next January 2009.

The revolutionary thing is that they will be left outside, in the street, anywhere accessible to you and me. I can already imagine the impromptu gigs that will sprout across the city!

Once more, it feels good to live in Sydney :-)

The Mountain of Fire

Overshadowed by the clouds, the thin air frozen,
Whenever that happens, it's as if winter came,
Still there's a warm light shaping the world around me,
I'm good, and you?

Optus One Year Celebration

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007
20071102 - 20 - Sydney - Optus One-Year Celebration

With the help of another co-worker, I organised a dinner in the city to celebrate the first anniversary of our work at Optus.

Even though few of us have actually worked there all that time ^^;


20071102 - 08 - Sydney - Optus One-Year Celebration - A big piece of meat in a dish

The Lowenbrau Keller restaurant, in the Rocks.

German meaty recipes are their speciality as you can tell in the picture. Good quality I guess, but I only had some veggie salad so I can’t really tell.

(re)connecting – City2Surf

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

Alright, since I’ve neglected this blog as bad can be, let’s try to fix a few things.

First of all, I’m going to do a quick catch up with some past news. It’s like instant noodles, it’s not that much exciting but it still fulfils its purpose: to feed your appetite or your curiosity should I say!

After the City2Surf

Yosh! I knew it was going to be a long run and the brochure didn’t lie about that: 14Km!

See here the proof, a map of the track from the Sydney inner city to Bondi beach.

With more than 50.000 thousand runners and raising $1049048 for charity this year, this race has been another terrific success for the Sun-Herald and me.

Well, long story short, I came 26427th and took 115m38s to complete the race.

Medal received after finishing the City2Surf race
Yeah! :-)

Some pictures of the event are available on the official website or on the Flickr gallery.

The world is black, originally uploaded by Sze Ning
The world is black

The Spring Equinox fell last month,
But seasons return more than once,

As Sunday will see a new shifting,
Make the best of this short morning,

The world may be fading away,
but light always will find its way,

A time to sow and a time to reap,
When is the moment to make the leap?
