Pastizzi café, newtown Numero uno coffee. 523 King St, Newtown. Wooden furniture, lots of natural light, and an impressively friendly owner combine to make a place that’s a pleasure to visit. Specializing in pastizzi, this café usually has options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Coffee is good too: separate grinder for decaf, and a good […]
Movie: Enchanted Starts out as a Disney cartoon, and then the characters end up in the real world. If you like the sound of this premise, you’ll enjoy the film. If you dislike Disney cartoon movies, or kids movies in general, stay away.

Staff are quiet and efficient, going about their business with a polished air. This is an “order at counter, take table number” kind of place, with a room […]
LEGO Galaxy Commander – I knew it as the phase 3 command ship. Did anyone else have one? It’s probably the toy I remember most fondly from my whole childhood!
Movie: Hitman Not since The Day After Tomorrow has there been a movie so tailor-made for sitting down with my younger siblings and ridiculing. A combination of action movie cliches, this film somehow manages to be entertaining, despite its lack of substance – it’s a case of reminiscing about the movies that this film was […]
