Anyone else want a tea room in Hyde Park?

Today I walked home from Northbridge to Mount Hawthorn. I probably didn't take the most time-efficient route because I avoided walking on any main roads, so overall it took one hour and twenty minutes. I'm not sure if I'll make a regular habit of it. The first 45 minutes was nice, but after that I just wanted to be home already. But, I saved $1.70 by not taking the bus.

My walk took me through Hyde Park, one of my favourite parks in Perth.

Hyde Park

Speaking of Hyde Park, I noticed in the Guardian Express that the Town of Vincent is doing a consultation to see whether the public would support a tea-room in the park. This would be awesome. I could combine two of my favourite things: tea + lakes, into one amazing lake-side tea-sipping experience. It would also be awesome because that would probably mean that there would also be some more public toilets constructed for all the people who have just finished drinking tea. At the moment, if the Hyde Park toilets are even unlocked, they're kind of scary to go into.

As for the proposed Tea-room, you can download the survey here if you also support the idea and want to help make it happen. You just have to submit by the 30th of October.

Vegetarian dinner

Wondering what a vegetarian dinner looks like? Here's a sample:


I warmed up some rice from last night, quickly steamed some corn, fried some onions and red kidney beans with salsa sauce, and chopped some lettuce and tomato. Preparation/cooking time = 15 minutes.

Thinkfirst WA Protest

Today I went to a protest. WA Parliament were debating whether or not to introduce a bill that would ban the sales of spraypaint and +6mm markers to anyone under the age of 18 (without any educational/employment-related exceptions). No thanks!

Here's a pic drawn by IKA at the protest =

Nobuta wo Produce

This is a fanclip made about the Japanese drama I've just started watching, "Nobuta wo Produce".

It's a show all about two guys who help out this loner girl at school. It seems cute. You can watch the whole thing on here.
