Outdoors, hobbies, DIY's and all things awesome.


Homemade smoked brisket: Is it worth the hours?

I haven’t heard about slow smoked briskets until a random ad popped up on my FB feed. It was Aaron Franklin’s MasterClass on slow smoked briskets. Just looking at those jiggly, juicy slabs of meat immediately got my attention. And so began the obsession. I did not waste any time, I did some research and […]

Bright Escapade: Too late for Autumn or too early for Winter?

One of the best things about the Victorian destinations is that, they change with the seasons. For instance, when we came to visit Beechworth a few months back, it was at the peak of summer. As lovely as it was, we always knew that the Northeastern side of Victoria is best known for its autumn […]

Exploring Port Fairy, Victoria

For starters, Port Fairy is one of the few Victorian towns with a rich history that dates back to the mid-1800s. This blog however, will not be giving out history lessons because I’m no bookworm — I’ll leave that to the history buff bloggers. What I can help you with is setting your expectations and giving you as much info as I can which may help you plan your trip, one way or the other.

So what’s in Port Fairy? What does it look like? Is it worth the drive? Let’s find out.

How to Safely Tow a Trailer

One of the things I look forward to in camping, aside from the destination itself, is setting up my gear. It hasn’t been too long since I started this hobby but I can already feel that this could actually go out of hand. It’s hard not to ‘addtocart’ a few camping stuff, no matter how […]

Weber Master-Touch 57: First impressions

A few weeks back, me and the missus turned a year wiser (let’s just leave it at that). Knowing that I’m into one of the daddest hobbies ever (backyard BBQing), a few of our closest friends gave us a Weber Master-Touch 57 for our birthday. How cool is that? And if you love charcoal grilling, […]

Boarding the BBQ Dad Bandwagon: Sweet and Spicy BBQ Pork Ribs

Apart from camping, fishing and other outdoor leisure, one of the most striking things in Australia is the BBQ culture. You can argue that it’s also true for the rest of the world, but in here, firing up the barbie on good sunny days is a little bit special. It’s not just for the sake […]

Camping at Lake Sambell Caravan Park, Beechworth

It hasn’t been very long since our last camping trip at Marengo but before we kiss 2020 goodbye, might as well go for one last camping trip to wrap up the year. We really wanted to go for beach side caravan parks or camp sites because like most kids, our 3-year-old loves the water. Unfortunately, […]

Bissell Spotclean Auto: How good is it?

I was contemplating whether I should blog this one or not, simply because I call this page the Leisure Scout. I’m supposed to be out there having fun, exploring the wonderful outdoors and taking cool photos. Unfortunately, I got chores to do. Gone are the days when we, men, were the mighty alphas that paid […]

Camping at Marengo Holiday Park

Lastly, being outside the comforts of our homes, having to hear some unfamiliar wildlife sounds, howling winds and crashing waves, is a reminder of how small and fragile we really are. And that we don’t mess with mother nature because she’s damn scary. And beautiful at the same time.
