HC Coombs Centre for Financial Studies

It’s been a far while now since I did any study and even longer since I’ve gone away for a course. Actually I don’t know if I’ve ever gone away for a course, anything I’ve done previously has tended to be in Perth town. So it was pretty exciting for me when the boss booked […]

I’m lucky in my job that I get to meet some really lovely people and right up on that list are a wonderful pair of FX and commodity dealers that I know. Given that I knew I would have some time available on my Thursday in Sydney, I figured I would see if these two had […]

Yama Japanese Cafe – Queen Victoria Building Sydney

On our final morning in Sydney and GG and I procrastinated in our hotel until check out at 11am and wandered around looking for somewhere that served a nice late breakfast. We hadn’t walked through the Queen Victoria Building and I was keen for GG to see it. It’s pretty impressive with all the detail […]

Aki’s Indian Restaurant – Sydney

We had a booking that night for Aki’s Indian Restaurant in Woolloomooloo. When GG had turned 30 the year before his family gave him a RedBalloonDays voucher for $200, which he had yet to spend and the expiry date was fast approaching….

White Horse Hotel – Sydney

Surry Hills is a really pretty area, with so many different options for lunch! Of course it was the food I noticed. I think we did a few laps up and down the road before finally settling on a nice looking pub called the White Horse Hotel. While other places had been packed, we were […]

Nick’s Seafood Restaurant – Sydney

Another morning and we figured it was important to have a decent breakfast to put us in good stead for another day of exploring. After the disappointing breakfast the previous day we thought we’d head back down to Darling Harbour, where the view is great and the restaurants plentiful. After a brief wander we settled […]

Aria, Sydney

There are some restaurants that I book months in advance and then eagerly count down the days until GG and I get to dine there. One such restaurant was Aria, which is owned and run by celebrity chef Matt Moran. Given our planned trip to the East, we thought we’d head out for one flashy […]

Ship Inn, Sydney

We knew we should have something light for lunch given that we had a special dinner ahead, so we called in Ship Inn. I’d been there many moons before for a beer with a banker I knew. So it was sort of familiar. They had some nice salad options so we decided to give them […]

Toros – Darling Harbour, Sydney

As it turned out our hotel in Sydney was in the perfect location and only a short walk away from Darling Harbour so on our first evening in the fair city we headed that way to find somewhere to eat. After a lap each side we finally settled on Toros, a tapas restaurant overlooking the […]
