Video: Valley Fiesta 2015 Wrap-Up

Yesterday I had the privelege of checking out the 2015 Valley Fiesta in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Acts like Alpine, Art vs Science, The Jensens and more performed over three days and three stages. The atmosphere was awesome and it’s amazing that events like this can happen every year in Brisbane. Huge shoutout to the team behind the festival – bring on 2016!

Video: The Beer InCider Experience, Albion

My Visual Journalism assignment for university involved me making a TV news story. Since I was interning at Red Hair Events who were running the September Beer InCider Experience in Albion, Brisbane, I made the most of the opportunity and killed two birds with one stone! This video is a few weeks old now but I just thought I’d share it. Continue reading “Video: The Beer InCider Experience, Albion”

Photo Blog: Cemetery in the rain at sunset

This afternoon, a friend and I headed out to follow a huge storm cell that was a little bit south of us. We drove towards Mt Coot-tha in Brisbane and ended up at Toowong Cemetery. No storm, but some amazing sunset lighting with a light shower made for some amazing photos… Continue reading “Photo Blog: Cemetery in the rain at sunset”

Morning After, West End

Sand Craft Omelette
Classic English Breakfast Tea

Nestled on the corner of Vulture Street and Cambridge Street in Brisbane’s West End, Morning After is guaranteed to be your new favourite cafe.

These guys opened on Tuesday last week and yesterday served over 400 customers in one day!

I dragged my (surprisingly) willing sister out to breakfast today with promises of a breakfast menu that didn’t consist entirely of eggs. She definitely needs to learn to like eggs, however Morning After’s breakfast menu does not disappoint.

Furnishings are stylish and modern

If I had to pick one word to describe their menu, it would be innovative. This menu is deliciously appealing yet completely unusual. Forget your standard bacon and eggs…how about a sweet corn pakora with avocado, fried egg and haloumi? Or perhaps a warm rice pudding with stone fruits and pistachios?

My sister was appeased with smashed avo on wholegrain with ricotta, horseradish and peas, and I went for the sand crab omelette with peanuts, chilli and lime. It was literally stuffed with crab and absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to go back and try what could be Morning After’s signature dish – carbonara with eggs and mushrooms – a twist on a classic which, according to their menu, offends all Italians.

The furnishings are quirky and modern, yet completely stylish. They’ve contrasted white with wood and astroturf surprisingly makes an awesome chair covering. The staff are so friendly, going above and beyond to make sure your experience is pleasant. Overall, the food was awesome and I can’t wait to go back to experience the rest of their breakfast menu and some of their lunch menu. 10/10 experience. Special shoutout to the couple getting frisky at the table beside us and sharing everything from their breakfast to their saliva.

Awesome furnishings give a modern feel

The Beer InCider Experience is all set to hit Brisbane for its second year EVER and it’s going to be bigger and better than last year. Former lawyer and now Festival Director, Martin (Marty) Keetels, decided to follow his passion of craft beer and events, which in 2014 culminated in the first ever Beer InCider Experience in Brisbane.

The Beer InCider Experience is a two day festival in Albion, Brisbane, happening on the 18th and 19th of September. It aims to entice the senses of every craft beer and cider lover around.

This years experience will step things up a notch, boasting 35 craft beer and cider retailers from around Australia and ten of Brisbane’s favourite food trucks. They know that craft beer is best paired with good food, so you can add the option to attend a 3-course lunch with paired beers on the Saturday of the festival.

Still not sold on the event? You clearly need to check out the music lineup! The lineup this year boasts headliners British India and Busby Marou, with a plethora of other awesome acts like All Our Exes Live in TexasSkipping Girl VinegarThe Glorious NorthThe Mae Trio and Josh Lovegrove. This stellar lineup only adds to what is already growing to be a top event on the Brisbane event calendar.

The two days of the festival are bound to get your beer-dar (that’s a beer radar!) tingling and your ears quivering. With over 130 craft beers and ciders to choose from…you’re going to wish it went for longer!

The All Dogs Sports Spectacular is an annual event run by Dogs Queensland. Unlike most dog shows, this event showcases a number of events (such as Best in Breed, Agility, Flyball and Disc) on the same day in a number of different arenas. The event was gold-coin donation and money raised went towards sponsoring Delta Therapy Dogs, who visit the Ronald McDonald Houses with their owners to help improve the quality of life of those who live there whilst undergoing treatment.
Here are just some of the photos that I took on the day.
