Eat Drink Perth 2011


Eat Drink Perth is a festival run by the City of Perth (meaning East Perth, West Perth, the CBD, and lower Northbridge) and will run through all of March, and will involve lots of food events, dinners, talks, and tastings. The main aim is to promote the City of Perth as a great place to eat, drink, and generally be merry.

For more information on the event, a program brochure (PDF 7MB) can be downloaded, print out a calendar of events (PDF 168KB) or simply head on to the Eat Drink Perth website.

Not wanting to lose out on the Social Media aspect of things, the Eat Drink Perth festival is jumping on the bandwagon.

One of the events that my friends and I are quite keen on is the Hawker Food Market in the heart of the city every Friday in March – 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th – inclusive of Indonesian satay, Cambodian Larb Salad, Spanish Pinxtos, Turkish gozlemes, Moroccan tapas, Columbian empanadas, Mexican tacos and Singaporean noodle dishes. Sounds like something you’d find on the street corners of KL or Singapore.

So, the most important question is – Who’s going?

    Greetings NaomiGreat post, thanks for the igisnht. Yes the journey inside yourself is what many people run from and it always have them living a life of less than their full potential’.When you run away, you can never wipe the slate clean because what you run away from always resides as an unresolved issue in your subconscious mind and this, without fail, affects future progress in a self sabotaging way.The best way to travel is to move into the centre of something instead of running away from that something. For example, by shying away from emotional pain, the issue is never resolved. However, if you move towards the issue, and sit in the middle of the discomfort, after awhile you’ll find, especially if you have good support, that pain often dissipates.It’s a bit like having a massage where someone finds a knot of stuck energy in your muscles. Rather than move around or away from the knot, the practitioner places great energy into the centre of the discomfort and as they do, after awhile the discomfort subsides and the tension is gone.Let me share one of the reasons for this. When viewing something through the filters of what we believe, our enculturation tends to manifest a perspective that leads us to buy into the idea that what we’re seeing is real or that our point of view is real. And because of this, we’re conditioned to make decisions and choices from the perception of the reality we believe in.So what happens if you look further into something, what happens if you seek finer distinctions with regard to what you’re seeing and believing, does this have the potential of changing the reality we see and believe?For example, I’m sitting here on a chair typing these words on a keyboard that sits on top of a desk. I look up and see a roof above me and four walls around me. My reality of what I’m touching and seeing is that everything is solid.However, if I look further into what appears as solid to me, if I seek finer distinctions and proceed to the atomic level, I quickly realise that everything is made up of atoms and electrons surrounded by what appears to be empty space. As a result, my solid reality gives way to the seemingly empty space reality of the atomic world.Now as I look at atoms in the atomic world, my senses perceive them as being solid in the same way that I perceived my desk to be solid. But if I look further into the atom and proceed to the subatomic world, the solidity gives away to particles and waves of energy surrounded by what appears to be empty space. But is that space really empty? Is it teaming with energy fields, energy waves and energetic particles. The further I go, the more my reality changes.The point I’m making is that when you fixate on any belief or view of something, that belief or view will often appear to you as being real, i.e., your reality. However, when you look further into something, you can often find one reality giving way to another reality based on finer distinctions of awareness and understanding.So what you run away from can never be healed or can never be yours. The more you move towards something, at least you now give yourself every possibility of fulfiling your true potential.Take care and thanks for the postPaul
