Hi guys,

Awhile ago a friend told me that there is an awesome huge kitchenwares shop, "just a couple of streets back from Southbank".

Now I am directionally challenged, and "couple of streets back from Southbank" means nothing to me. After all, doesn't it matter where in Southbank you are in the first place? Of course it does. (Well, at least I know it's not in the direction of the river, but other than that, I'm clueless)

I did google it, but no luck.

Does anybody know of what Kitchenware Heaven she speaks?
Or even just alternatives. It doesn't have to be Southbank, it just has to be Kitchenware Heaven.

I would be hugely grateful if you could tell me :3

11th-Apr-2012 06:16 pm - Kotobuki envelopes?
Hi there,

Anyone know where I can get kotobuki (celebration) envelopes (think they're called shuugi bukuro) in Brisbane CBD or Southside?

They're essentially little envelopes you put money in and give to newly wedded couples at the ceremony. Japanese tradition. The Chinese equivalent is the wedding "ang pow".

Thanks!

Deadshot at play
Hi everyone,

I'm after a decent personal trainer on the Northside who can kick my ass a few times a week to get ready for potential entry into the Police academy. Preferably one that may have some knowledge of effective climbing techniques.

I know there are some great ones out there that charge next to nothing. Which... y'know, awesome, but I'm willing to pay for a good one if they know their stuff.

Let me know if anyone has a recommendation! Thanks guys :)

Hey everyone. Wondering if someone knows where I can buy/rent a maid outfit? Not a 'sexy' one, just a simple black and white one. Preferably somewhere on the southside or in the CBD, but I can travel further if necessary. Thanks! Have a cute cat icon for your time.

Hi!

Does anybody here know where there are donation dropoff bins for Lifeline or St Vincent de Paul or other charities that accept secondhand clothes in the Western suburbs (specifically, the Darra-Sherwood-Corinda area)? I have recently gone through my wardrobe and now have quite a bit of stuff that's quite good still but I'll never wear again, so I want to donate it.

Please don't just say 'there are several places' - I need street addresses. I have been wandering around looking for charity bins all round my area and I just can't find any - I need a specific location. 'The corner of East St and West St' or 'the north side of X shopping centre, near Y supermarket', that kind of thing.

Please help!

26th-Feb-2012 02:28 pm - Large object transport
little dragon
Due to lots of long & complex reasons, we need to move a non-functional car 500km from a small country town to Brisbane.
I have investigated a few vehicle-transport companies & it's the car's non-functionality that is the problem. If it can't be driven, they don't want to know about it.
So... Any suggestions? Anyone moved a large, immobile object, in the 1-1.5tonne range, from somewhere that is not a big town?
Which companies might do this type of work?
Failing that, does anyone know anyone with a car trailer & towing vehicle, (or a crane truck, or tow truck) who'd be willing to do a thousand km round trip for the cost of the fuel & a place to stay overnight? And we'd feed you.

A few friends and I are looking to move into a lovely four-bedroom house backing onto the park in Coorparoo, but our fourth person has just pulled out, and we need to confirm things and pay bond/rent quite soon. Is anyone looking for a room to rent in that area? Rent will be $120/week plus bills.

House has double garage, polished wood floors, garden, renovated bathroom and near-new kitchen. 500m from bus and train transport.

We are two girls and a boy 18-20 years old. Our interests: photography, gaming, anime/manga, cooking/baking, cosplay, general geekery; but we're not social-skill deprived and want to keep a nice tidy home. Looking for someone who respects other people's space and privacy, but also someone who can get along with us and have a chat from time to time.

Let me know if you're interested!
13th-Feb-2012 06:31 pm - 27" Thunderbolt Display for sale
face
Hi guys

My work has a brand new Apple Thunderbolt Display for sale. It's 27". The box has been opened so we are unable to return to our supplier, however the casing around the display is untouched. We're hoping to recoup our loss on it, so only asking for the cost price. We paid $1089.10inc. Delivery is at your own cost, but you're welcome to come and pickup. We'll accept payment via direct deposit or cash.

If you're interested, please email sales@un.net.au

Hope someone out there would like it, it's such a gorgeous display, it's a shame to have it just sitting around doing nothing.
4th-Feb-2012 11:02 am - A post with two purposes...
Squee

First - I've been nominated for a Rose & Bay Award, and this is just a quick reminder for anyone who reads my work to please vote. (click the above image to be taken to the voting page). 

Suits. Magic. Cookies.

Second - and likely applicable to more people.

Hi, I'm Stormy, I write Mirrorfall (Require: Cookie), a geeky urban fantasy series set in Brisbane. 

The TL;DR summary is: Angels run the MiB and they're in Queen Street.

I'm terrible at promoting myself, so here's the synopsis from the Rose & Bay nomination post (written by a fan):

An ongoing geeky urban fantasy series set mostly in an alternate version of Brisbane. I could say that the main protagonist is a hacker girl who dies and becomes an angel, and it would be technically true while probably leading you to form a completely inaccurate impression. Angels in this setting are more likely to be sporting suits than feathered wings these days, and they belong to The Agency responsible for maintaining order in a world where humans and fae live side by side, and the prevalence of magic doesn't stop some people from wanting to wipe it out.

Click the banner above if you're interested - we're currently on book five (Kindle and DTB versions will appear later this year).
2nd-Feb-2012 04:41 pm - Valentines night Restaurant?
Tea anyone?

Hi all, 

So for the first time EVER I have a boyfriend on Valentines day. Naturally, we want to do the whole dinner thing, but we're a kind of relaxed couple, and sort of didn't realise that places would book out so fast.

Garuva is booked out completely, cos we left it so late, and now i'm completely devastated, and also lost for ideas.

Suggestions??? We don't want to go somewhere too expensive, but we don't want to go somewhere nasty and cheap. 

Preferably somewhere either on the southside of Brisbane, or in the City/ Valley, that has decent atmosphere, and either good vegetarian, or seafoody food options (for the mister), any kind of food is good for me.

I was thinking Freestyle Tout... but then again... I don't really know what other options there are out there, so was hoping you guys may have some ideas!

Thanks guys~!~

Has anyone been to a career counseling service before? Did you find it helpful? Do you have any recommendations? I'm looking into making a couple of changes and wouldn't mind going over options, evaluating skills, etc.

Punk w/ money
My mum has a printed photo of me and my brothers from when we were all very small (at least 18 years ago) which was just from one of those kiosk setups in the shopping centres. It wasn't framed with glass in front, so it's got some damage to it and the colour's starting to fade in the middle. We're wanting to get another one for her but all prettified like it would have been originally.

Anyone have any recommendations for places in Brisbane (preferably northside, but that doesn't matter especially) that can...I'm not even sure of the word I want to use - retouch? remaster? restore?...an old print without a negative? When I'm not even sure of what term to use Google swamps me with results, and I don't pass any stores in my daily life that could point me in the right direction. Or even anyone with the correct terminology for what I want to do?
Hi everyone,

All listings are currently at $0.99. If you see something you like and want to make an offer, feel free to leave a comment or message me through eBay. Most importantly I just want these CDs to go to a loving home.

Happy new Year!
