Life Drawing at the Arthouse Hotel – Sketch of the Week 17/08/15

   

So Monday was the first week back to Life Drawing in M-O-N-T-H-S! Some things have changed since I was MIA; They have now moved it upstairs at the smaller, poorly-ventilated Attic Bar and it now costs $7 instead of $5 πŸ˜•

Anyway, it was still a fun session, it took me a while to warm up but towards the end I was slowly getting back into the groove of things. πŸ‘

I decided to pick one of my more looser sketches for Sketch of the Week. It’s a pose I haven’t really posted before and I like the sketchy, spontaneous quality to it and how it’s a simple drawing yet still has personality behind it. 

Quote of the Day

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

-Marilyn Monroe

Visited the Kit Kat Studio at Westfield Sydney

  

On Sunday I made my very own limited edition Kit Kat at the Kit Kat Studio at Westfield Sydney.

I decided to create a milk chocolate Kit Kat with rose petals, hazelnut pieces and salted caramel popcorn, and it even came in a personalised chocolate box, all for $9.

We waited in line for about 40 minutes, which was kinda expected. And then after finishing making our selection on their ipad menus, we paid and then were told via sms that we would be sent another sms to say when our Kit Kats would be ready – which took another 2 hours.

Luckily we planned on shopping in the City that day, so it didn’t turn out to be too much of a hassle. Otherwise, we were told that they will store our Kit Kats for a week at the studio, so we could always drop-by to pick them up on another day.

The Kit Kat Studio will be open at Westfield Sydney until the 30th of August so be sure to check it out!

Japanese Film Festival – Sydney

20141120-075831.jpg

So last Sunday I caught a screening of the film ‘A Tale of Samurai Cooking – A True Love Story’ which is showing as part of the Japanese Film Festival – Sydney and Parramatta.

It was a beautifully-shot, light-hearted drama set during Japan’s Edo Period, about a talented young cook named Haru who processes an extraordinary palette for flavours. Impressed by her talent she is convinced by the famous chef Dennai to marry his son Yasunobu, the heir of the Funkai family, a prestigious family of Samuriai chefs that serve the Kaga domain. The film centres on how Haru teaches her husband, who is very disinterested in being a chef – the joys of cooking and the skills of creating fine cuisine.

Overall, I had a great experience at the Japanese Film Festival at Events Cinema George St. as they showed the film in one of the larger screens. I also was surprised by the diversity of the crowd present – It wasn’t just the Otaku crowd you would come to expect, but many younger and older people people coming from different cultural backgrounds, coming as groups and also with their families.

I enjoyed my time so much at the Festival that I plan on going again tonight to watch ‘Tokyo Tribe’, a film about Tokyo’s underbelly set as a rap battle. Interesting, VERY IN-TERESTING…

The Japanese Film Festival is currently running in Sydney and Parramatta from 13 – 23 November, so you might wanna hurry to catch a screening before it’s gone.

Tickets are:
$18 – Adult
$15 – Concession
$75 – 5 film pass
$13.50 – Group Booking (10+)
