I am going to Sydney tomorrow to see the Blueberry Fool (see the links to the left) and attend an opening of a new show called "Herbarium" of my work at Salmon Galleries.
The first thing I'll be doing when I get off the plane (apart from missing Fizzy D, the thought of it is breaking my heart already) is going to the Sussex Food Court on Sussex St and having a bowl of Pho. For those who haven't tried this delicious Vietnamese soup, it is made of special recipe stock and filled with fresh Thai basil, Vietnamese mint, noodles, chillies, lemon juice and thin strips of beef cut so finely they cook themselves in the boiling broth. YUM Yum!
I always feel like a total dag in Sydney. It's funny in Melbourne I feel like I'm quite well dressed. Over the years I've come to the conclusion that Sydney people have expensive, matching accessories, the caramel coloured hair matches the beige Prada handbag, matches the tiny sandals made of microscopic pieces of leather and air which match the perfectly tanned feet and pearly toenails- I can't possibly compete with this.
Although I will be taking my new/old op-shop find , a glo-mesh bag. Watch out girls!
