I mentioned to my girl Shirl the other day that this summer seems to be the summer of partying. It perhaps has something to do with summer not actually having arrived yet, so instead of packing up our picnic baskets and bikinis and heading to the beach, we just stay in the city and get on it… Whatever the reason, it’s been fun, too much fun maybe – hence the late/lack of posts lately. I’m sorry. But, Can I Live? Jokes. I’ll be better, promise.
The Lantern Festival : Every year I hear via Shirl about how amazing the Lantern Festival is, and every year I’ve missed out. I made it this year and… THE LANTERN FESTIVAL IS AMAZING. We spent most of our time walking along the food stalls and sampling anything and everything that took our fancy, word to the Lychee Frappé, the okonomiyaki, the karaage chicken and custard and coconut filled pancakes. The lanterns pretty much blew my mind and the fireworks display was probably the best I’ve seen in NZ. (LANTIN!)
The Lloyd Concert:
- I was so excited when I heard Lloyd would be performing at the Civic. I’d been there a couple of times before for movie showings and Chris Rock, but the the atmosphere at the Lloyd show was really different. Everyone was getting ON one, and it was funny to see, essentially, a really rowdy party at a really swank venue. It may have been the most fun I’ve had at a concert, dancing pretty much the entire way through as Lloyd played all his hits, starting his set off with Get It Shawty’!!! (sidenote: NEW LLOYD HERE)
The return of D-Form – My boy PNC performed at Rakinos over the weekend, and part of the highlight was seeing D-Form back DJing. I think it was his first time in about 3 years, and everyone was so stoked to see him behind the decks again. (another sidenote: NEW PNC SONG HERE)
David’s Oz tour promo vid:
- I believe this to be my best work ever. (sidenote: JUST KIDDING, THERE IS NO SIDENOTE).
Washing the car (!?!) :
- So, David was all, ‘let’s wash the car’ the other day, and I was all, ‘nah, I’m too laaaaazy, I don’t waaaana’, and he was all, ‘nah bo, we’re doing it!’ And then he started washing the car, and I was all, ‘MY TURN, MY TURN.’ And I had heaps of fun, and pretended we were in some kind of time trial car washing competition, and that the wash gun was a machine gun, you know, as you do.
