Be sure to keep an eye for cool cars on the streetsIMG_0695

Paris Airport

Next day( hung over a bit ) at Paris airportIMG_0639 And who should I see at the check in, Mimi Xu, on her way to DJ at a party in Milan. Iknow Mimi from Sydney when she was first a fashion editor at Australian Style and then Oyster magazine. Now she has a record label ( Kus Kus ) and guest DJ's all over the placeIMG_0642 IMG_0646 IMG_0650 IMG_0652 what airline is this one ( Evan ? )IMG_0655

Out on the town with and without Manu

Have not seen Emmanuel for 4 months and we had a lot to catch up on, but I leave for Milan in the morning, so we meet up for dinner in Antwerp with some of his friends. And, well, basically I had a few too many of theseIMG_0607
On the way to a bar after dinner I bump into Fu and Nina, also just back from NewYork, she was working at the Proenza show, damn it I forgot , I could have gone to the show after all, That's the Cathedral in the background, and how's the jumper I'm wearing, granny made it, remember it Leen ?IMG_0612
After a few more drinks at the Ultimatum, Manu's friends want to go to the Que Pasa, where they have drag shows tonight. Sure I'm up for it, so there's me, Toni, Paul, Pholoso, Jan and Manu.Manu would be the one desperatly on the phone trying to find a way out of coming to the bar, and sure enough as we were walking to the gay bar, MAnu dissapeared ( pussy )IMG_0614 Beauty & the beastIMG_0617 IMG_0629a how's the make up, looking plasticIMG_0631 A bar full of men, oh and a few girls ( the butch variety) still was a fun night, but the shows are no way near as good as the ones I seen in Sydney

A night in NYC with Da Carta

At the Rad Hourani show we worked out we were both staying at the same hotel, and of to Milan tomorrow so we planned to go out for dinnerIMG_0481 This , after we already had like 15 different dishes, yummmieeee. Told you Jac you would kill me when you saw this photoIMG_0482 yum, and I'm already full, ok, deep breath ...here we go IMG_0488 burp ( how rude )IMG_0492 after dinner we grab a limo( literally ) and head over to Greenwich , to the Kingswood club ( kingswood, not the bloody Kingswood )IMG_0494 Kingswood reminded me of Goodbar in Sydney ( late 80's  ) Sharan is here, hey why weren't you there for the pan cakes ( Hi Mum )IMG_0496 Robyn ( people Revolution )IMG_0499 Carta to the max :-)IMG_0504 well well well, turns out Kingswood is a Pilcher venture. Avalon boy Lincoln Pilcher, and the boys from TKsubi are involved as well. Everytime I been to NY always wanted to meet up with Lincoln as he has a restaurant, but always timed it when it was either being renovated, or the Italian festival was on or... still have not seen itIMG_0505 That's what Carta and I thought of the officeIMG_0506 George gorrow IMG_0507 Dan SingleIMG_0522 IMG_0528 IMG_0531 oh no, I been caught on camera, wonder where that will pop upIMG_0543 George explaining door policy to door men, Aussie good :-)
I had enough at this stage, and am supposed to be back at the hotel to meet Lee at another party, so off I go , out the door and straight into a cab, love NY for that.Unlike Paris, over priced and never can get one anyway
