Cavalock and The National Day Invariability

There are some things you can always count on when it comes to our nation's National Day celebrations. There's the totally cheesy National Day Parade song, the extremely sucky new Channel 5 show that debuts after the parade and my personal favorite, the wash pole patriot. Every year since I started this blog back in 2006, it has never failed to raise a little chuckle with me. Best. National. Day. Tradition. Ever. ;)


So here you go, every year since 2006, 2007, 2008 well, no post on the wash pole patriot that year cos I was too busy posting bout my awesome Gen Con Oz trip, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Notice how the flag would fly or face in all kinds of different directions over the years! It's frickin' hilarious!

Well, by now lotsa folks here would have already heard of new food joint Jamie's Italian opening at Vivo City. Kinda got me thinking bout the dinner I had at Jamie's Italian over at Canary Wharf several years ago. I'm pretty sure the dining experience is going to be very different. When I was at Canary Wharf, it was packed with boisterous working adults with drinks in hand, no kids or big families in sight. There was a busy bar area and the whole place was rather dimly lit. Somehow I seriously doubt if our version will be anything like that. Can't really comment on the food since I have only tried the one in London which I enjoyed, but I have no doubt it'll be well liked here too.
