Do you go to Resist Records in Newtown? That place fucking rules. I'm going to be in Syd next week, can't wait to hit that place up, as well as Kings Comics.

yeah, i don't blame you. it seemed pretty dodgy!

funny, i actually stumbled accross Resist when i had to accompany a couple of my friends to the police station accross the road. i had been meaning to go there and had no idea where it was, then when i got out of the taxi there it was! they were in the cop shop for like an hour making a statement and i greeted them with a bunch of CD's haha.
the other amusing thing about that adventure was that newtown was the first place where we saw o'porto chicken, which we'd been looking for the whole time we were in sydney. i think it's like the sydney version of nandos or something.

Oporto's is the bomb, I just finished eating some... I'm surprised melbourne doesn't have it! Even the UK has it supposedly.

I used to work there, I just quit about 3 weeks ago... Best fast food ever! and I'm also very surprised you only found Oporto's in Newtown, they're all over sydney - especially in shopping centres.

yeah, i've heard it's awesome, that's why we were desperately trying to find it, but by the time we got there we'd already eaten! have to go there this time. i think it's like nandos, which is awesome, because nando's is killer.

we could only find o'galo's in the CDB. we thought we'd try eating there, but it sucked.

Ogalo's is pretty nice but nothing like Oporto's... I know the guy who runs the Ogalo's in the CBD too lol...

i would have posted earlier but getting used to the sleeping around here is insane, but i think today i'm doing the harbor cruise, checking out the opera house, etc... And hahahhaha.....the red light district was the first thing the cab driver told me about when i got out of the aiport. I'll probably miss that one seeing as there are a lot of really hot foreign girls staying at my hostel with me.
