Go ABC3

Flicked through the TV Guide this evening and was somewhat surprised that ABC3 was re-airing Heartbreak High, one of the better Aussie TV shows of all times. Ironically (or coincidentally?) most of the better Aussie shows seem to have the same cast/crew combo working on them.. Wildside in the mid/late 90’s… to today where you’ve probably got the Underbelly series on Nine.

So in a break from my usual Monday night workings, I flicked my TV to ABC3 and was even more surprised when they were showing Season 1… (which Ten originally had the rights too)… Looks like I may be having a 30 min slot with my TV each night seeing I haven’t actually watched much of the earlier seasons…

Home sweet home…

Got home yesterday and have been sleeping/resting most of it as didn’t feel very well after all the flying… Other than that catching up on internet and all…

Some highlights from my internet surfing…

United States of Pop 2009, an awesome mashup of the top 25 billboard hits for 2009

I Love Lunch! The Musical, another awesome mission by Improv Everywhere

Farewell summer holiday…

In about 45 minutes I’ll be leaving the hotel on my way back to Noi Bai (Hanoi) airport. Spent last night wandering the lake looking at the flower displays. It was really packed in the early evening but towards midnight it became a bit easier to walk around. In the end I ended up going back to my hotel at about quarter to midnight as it was rainy and I’d seen the majority of the displays. Was quite tired as well.

Oh in my travels back from Laos… you know you’re in a tiny airport when:

  • You have to scan your bags BEFORE you enter the airport
  • They don’t require you to present your bag of carry on liquids nor do they make you empty your water bottle that is almost a litre and half full
  • You can pass through immigration and get exit stamped but still pass back in to the main area of the airport to buy food
  • After security screening, to go to the toilet you have to exit the main area to this other area where you can walk outside but on the way back you don’t need to get rescreened. And you can take your carry on bags out with you…

Anyways better get ready… Sydney tomorrow morning… yay!
