Melbourne City vs Sydney FC

IMG_9765.JPGA night of ups and downs really at AAMI Park when Melbourne City took on Sydney FC for the second time this season.

I was chosen for a Coco Joy half time competition (which I ended as one of two joint winners) but the night was marred by Natalie’s mum getting hit by a ball during the Melbourne City’s warm up before the game.

It initially looked like she had broken a wrist but a scan at the hospital revealed that it was only some bruising.

It got worse during the game.


A mistake by Miller losing possession in midfield led to Sydney FC’s first goal and Wielaert basically gifted Sydney FC their second.

We scored one late on but it was too little too late.

All these personal mistakes are really starting to cost us and the coach has to be blind to not see it.

Tough to watch us play fairly well week in week out and get nothing out of it.

Here’s a video of me in the Coco Joy competition, I’m the guy in the red top and white cap.


Melbourne Victory vs Brisbane Roar


We got given free tickets to the game last night. Seeing that we had nothing on, we scooted over to Etihad Stadium and sat through a pretty boring game.

Didn’t help that Victory won the game albeit with a Roar own goal.


Night Noodle Market Again!


The weather was warm tonight so we couldn’t resist going back to the Night Noodle Market.

The crowds were INSANE though. There were a lot more people in queues buying food but we found some seats quite easily at the Citibank VIP area.

We had a papaya salad, pad thai and lime slushies before deciding that the crowd wasn’t worth hanging around for.

It was tough to have to head home and not enjoy the warm night outside but our common hatred for large groups of people meant we were more comfortable at home watching the Western Sydney vs Central Coast game with our filled bellies.






Search All My Tweets!

Twitter announcing that they’re indexing every tweet since 2006 so I can search all my tweets since my Twitter account was born and not just the latest 3000 tweets!

Since that first simple Tweet over eight years ago, hundreds of billions of Tweets have captured everyday human experiences and major historical events. Our search engine excelled at surfacing breaking news and events in real time, and our search index infrastructure reflected this strong emphasis on recency. But our long-standing goal has been to let people search through every Tweet ever published.

I gave up waiting for Twitter to come up with a solution years ago and have been using an IFTTT recipe to forward tweets to a Google spreadsheet.

All I needed to do to look for an old tweet is do a CMD+F in that spreadsheet.

If you think about it, it’s incredible Twitter all these years to come up with a feature that allows users to search for their old tweets quickly and accurately but I’m glad they did it.

And now to fix DMs syncing across devices….

Thermomix Cooking Class


We attended a Thermomix cooking class tonight at Thornbury. It went for a bit longer than I’d like but it was good to learn some tips from the demonstrators though.

I’m a little inspired to try some new recipes for the summer now!
