Rochester Ginger.. 'bring out your dark side'.....!


A 'non alcoholic drink with the kick of 2 very angry mules'.. oh how I wish I'd seen this on Saturday before I actually had two alcoholic drinks.. seriously I'm such a lightweight, after a glass of champagne to toast Aimee's birthday and two glasses of wine on Saturday, yesterday I was like a very angry mule.. without the ginger :) We went into Northbridge to catch the Chinese New Year  festivities, if you click the link you'll see a short film of everything I missed! Stalls selling food and crafts lined both sides of James Street from the Piazza down to the Perth Cultural Centre.....


You can just see the lights back there for Fringe World at the entrance to the Cultural Centre....


I 'photo-napped', good word oui :) a group having their picture taken with members of the WA Police Pipe Band.....


A young lady selling orange juice.. from inside an orange! I think everyone was down at the Rochester Ginger stand!


I missed the actual Lion Dance because it started 10 minutes early and I was running late eh! but later I did catch this 'lion' limbering up and having a bit of fun with a few youngsters that had gathered around. I'm looking forward to catching up with what you've been up to over the weekend today, hope it was.. or is still, a good one! Take care.....

  1. Fringe World looks like great fun!

    Like you, I'm a lightweight when it comes to alcohol...actually, I'm a featherweight. Even one drink will put me under the table!

  4. Looks like a great time was had by all! So colorful. And lots of people. I've not heard of this drink before, which is just as well, 'cause I figure if I want a "kick," I'll drink my favorite alcoholic beverage. How can ginger give you a knockout punch? With tons of sugar? :)

    As Bogart might say, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth, "No thanks, sweetheart, I like my whiskey straight!"

  7. Looks like a colourful, fun day out. Somehow, baseball caps don't really go well with tartan kilts.

  17. A mule never kicks his head twice against a stone, is a dutch saying. Don't know it has something to do with it. :)

  21. Aww, sadly the film isn´t available. But it really looks like you had fun, Grace.
    Is it true what they say about wearing no underwear with a kilt? Ah, non, I don´t wanna know ;-)
