Parcels…err delivering @_@ the electropop disco goodies at The Triffid last week!

Well the Good Things Festival certainly lived up to their name bringing back the essence of what made previous institutions like Big Day Out and Soundwave great. Nice variety of bands across multiple genres, minimal clashes and room to move! Stand our performance of the day would have had to of been Babymetal who managed to get two stage full of punters bouncing to songs about chocolate! In one word, they, like the rest of the day was simply FUN! Fingers crossed we get to see them bring it back in 2019! 😀

Check out the bunch of pics below!

Parkway Drive

Lit, turnt, hook, chain, all the things! We’re still looking for the words to describe the night but one thing’s for sure, the guys and gals at G-Shock sure know how to throw a party! 😀

Sneaker Freaker’s sophomore collaborative effort, the top to toe, mandible to abdomen make over the DW5700 aka the “Redback” was this year’s reason to celebrate and the rather appropriate event date of Oct. 31st led to impractical clubbing costumes and overly risque ensembles amongst the streaming beer and cider and steady flow of hors d’oeuvres (seriously the sliders and ribs were amazing! I’ve also never seen so many people fight over cauliflower before haha)

G’s on the field – it was quite the G-spotters paradise! Limited editions like the Burton Rangeman to the current GWFD1000 Frog, higher end faves – the MTGS1000 and MRGG1000 and even a rare in the wild DW8195 Gundam were nestled amongst the summery colours of the DW5600CMA and the GA400CM rasta twins, 5600/6900’s from the Redout 35th anniversary series and a generous helping of G staples.

Special thanks to the hard working teams behind G-Shock Australia, Sneaker Freaker and the great staff at the Belleville Melb. For putting together another awesome event – makes the tiring, delayed flights with budget carriers worthwhile!

Till next time guys!

Fuji-Q Highland

So what do you do when you’re staying within a gyoza throw of a rollercoaster theme park with Guinness world record breaking rollercoasters? Go to Thomas the Tank engine land instead of course! ^_^’

It does seem a little odd having the mayhem of a rollercoaster theme park in amongst tranquil lakes and temples with a Mt Fuji backdrop, ah Japan the land of contrasts, but like they say… when in Rome… I mean, when in Kawaguchiko….

It was our last day in the little lake side town so after checking out we spared the luggage drag and taxied directly to Fuji Q.

Travel tip:
There are storage lockers at both entrances, the biggest size is -just- big enough to fit a large suitcase that’s pushing it’s weight limit. However make sure you get dropped off at the main entrance (near the hotel) if you want to use these large lockers.

As mentioned we were mostly there to give the little one her first foray into theme parks, this did work in our favour as a lot of the rides aren’t included in the gate ticket price (Y1000-2000 extra for each ride) and while the park was quite empty first thing in the morning, there were still line ups for the main attractions. Thomas Land however was included in the price and line waits were minimal if at all, most being “hop off and straight back on”.

Like most large theme parks, food and amenities are easily accessible, the eatery near Thomasland directly catering to the youngsters with kid friendly meals, pizza, pasta, chips etc in small portions.

If you’re not into roller coasters, its not a complete loss, there’s apocalypse style “haunted houses”, 4D movie style experiences and a selection of tamer rides.

Update: Thomas world has since added a bunch of new rides and activities while the park itself has a few extras namely the winter wonderland activities and rides during the cold seasons.

Quick stop equals quick blog post!  Next we finally get to the main event, the purpose of the whole trip, SNOW in the Japanese alps! 😀
