death by paper cut

{November 7, 2007}   melbourne cup day

every year, victoria takes a state holiday to take part in the melbourne cup extravaganza in one way or the other.

my housemate won $150 on a $5 on-a-whim-bet which was in fact more than a fluke because her uncle who placed the bet for the relatives bet on the wrong horse by mistake. this wrong horse turned out to be the champion.

i didn’t pay attention to anything that happened at the race course that afternoon because i had a much more enjoyable time at a bbq-get-together-to-eat-anyway-birthday-celebration in the suburbs.

its things like that and food like that makes me feel right at home. the home-made satay put me right back at newton.


as a bonus, i got served up barista-made coffee right in the backyard, freshly roasted and ground too!
