Festival Gets Creative With Flags Made Of Food

The Sydney International Food Festival takes place next month and as part of their media campaign they have released an array of photographs showcasing international flags made of food that is indigneous to that particular part of the world. For example in the picture above fresh basil, al dente pasta, and ripe cherry tomatoes are used to look like the Italian flag.

It’s a very cute and creative way to represent the food festival and the World Chef Showcase that will be spotlighted in Sydney as well. (via Huffington Post)



Complaining Customer Finds Feces In His Gelato

Posted in Food & Drink, International, WTF?! with tags , , , , , on October 29, 2008 by TheDiversePurse

What’s wrong with people?! If I owned a pub, and a customer had a complaint I would work it out so that all my patrons were satisfied. But, a couple complained in Sydney that a pub owner put some “frozen fecal matter” in their gelatos which made them both extremely ill. They side it arose when they claimed they couldn’t hear a football game on the television because of the loud music in the establishment.

The pub owners claim their innocence with both sides saying they were trying to get large sums of money out of one another. They police say they may have to turn to DNA to further investigate. Ewww!!! Link! (via CNN)


Nicole Scherzinger Is A Freak

Posted in Entertainment, Fashion, Music, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2008 by TheDiversePurse

The Pussycat Dolls performed some of their hits at the Royal Opera House in Sydney Australia yesterday and it seems Nicole Scherzinger has a liking for PVC gear. She showed up at London’s Vodafone Music awards last month in a black PVC dress, which I posted HERE, and here she is in Sydney. Maybe all this PVC material, usually found in a dominatrix’ closet, is a tie-in with the title of the new album “Doll Domination”. But I’d like to think Nicole is actually a freak who makes her English race car champion beau Lewis Hamilton her personal gimp a la Pulp Fiction.
