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.

Starting Out On the Wrong Foot With a Koala

A few minutes later I heard footsteps. Whether it was walking or crawling, I wasn’t really sure, but it was moving — I can hear twigs breaking, leaves rustling.

My heart’s beating a little faster now.

Easy DIY Pond Project

The thing about ponds and fish keeping in general is that, space matters. The good news is, there’s this preformed ponds, or preformed pond liners, as they call it. They’re very easy to install and they come in different sizes — mostly on the small to medium range.

And here’s my previous DIY project using Whites Screen Up posts. So, there are a few different ways of building a planter box but for this one, we […]

Contact Sports and the Brain: A Psychiatrist’s Take

All risks considered, there’s much more to contact sports than just brute strength and injuries. Boxing for example, is not all about breaking people’s eye sockets and knocking people out. It’s the art and the discipline that real fans appreciate.

How To: DIY Pavers With Raised Garden Bed

When building a path around your house, concrete is always the best option. Not only does it give your slab some protection, it also helps minimise ground movement. However, the plain old concrete looks a little too.. plain. And I’m not very comfortable working with concrete either — can’t afford to make mistakes on an […]
