Campaign for real beauty or not!

Have anyone seen the Dove’s billboard high along Elizabeth street? I know it is obvious standing on the corner of Elizabeth and Lonsdale street outside the church. The counters have been tallying the votes for either flawless or freckled. For the past few weeks, I’ve watched the counters swing between the two, sometimes the freckled one will be leading and on other days, the flawless one will lead. This has been a campaign by Dove to Campaign for Real Beauty.

Real beauty or not, it is interesting to see what people think. Would be nice if they could have broken down the tally by gender.

Loud clothing!

Fellow blogger squirt wants Melbourne to brighten up. I honestly would, if I could, but I just can’t get past my black trench coat or leather jacket.

However, tomorrow is May 12th, and its a special day in more ways than one. Its Loud Shirt Day tomorrow, and if you want to don some bright clothing, you can raise money to help teach deaf children to speak.

So who’s going to be all bright tomorrow?

Wear bright clothings!

Is it just me or do you think winter clothes in Melbourne tend to be dark and gloomy? I’ve been watching all the black jackets and boots everywhere on the trains, trams and on the streets. It just makes winter much more gloomier than it already is.

I wish more people will try to wear brighter outer wear … make it bright red, yellow, green, orange and blue!

Chocolate to drive away the winter blues…

I found a chocolate place in Melbourne Central. Tucked away in a corner of the building, the best way to describe it is the tiny lane accessible from little lonsdale street closer towards the Elizabeth street end. You know … the tiny lane with all the cafes next to the office building. I saw people having chocolate fondue, hot chocolate … yummy. Expensive but irresistible.

My latest chocolate fad was triggered by something I saw at the last home show. This company, Groovy Chocolate, was able to print colour photos onto chocolate. Just imagine … being able to lick a favourite person or to bite into a least favourite person. Either way, it is still chocolate. Since Mother’s day is round the corner, just imagine buying chocolate for your mother or mother-in-law!:)

Anyone tried french fries dipped in chocolate?
