Woolworths!

Woolworths!

On the last leg of my OZ trip, I went a little further up north of Sydney to visit a friend overnight. I wasn't able to shop AT ALL in Sydney because a lot of the stores were closed on Sunday and I really didn't have the time. I did visit the Chanel store for a few minutes... boy oh boy oh boy, that Americana collection is fantastic. But $6,000 (was it 6 or was it 8? I'm not sure) for a jacket? Rupert Murdoch lend me your mastercard please.

Bryanboy in trainers? SHOCK HORROR!

One of the shops I thoroughly enjoyed, believe it or not, was Woolworths... the Australian version of Walmart. It was a grocery store alright, smacked in the middle of nowhere New South Wales, and going there was soo surreal! If you have seen The Simple Life, think of me as Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie going to Walmart in bumfuck America. It was a visual feast seeing normal, non-fashiony, non-Margiela wearing Australians.

Click click click!

Look at the Aussies!

I really wished I brought our maid to take fun pics like we always do here in the third world. Australia is a place prime for photo ops and it's a shame I wasn't comfortable getting pics taken by people other than our maid. Here in the flips, I know I wouldn't have any problems walking around the street in a leather Gucci dental floss thong with my scrotum hanging out on the side but when it comes to unchartered territory... well... it's difficult.

Fatty patty boom boom!

My friend and I went to a sushi place for late lunch.

I even made a new friend. Hahahaha! Karl Lagerfeld's boy toy is dat chu? Brad Kroenig is dat chu?

And the dog!

I love Woolworths!

I bought like $150 worth of Cadbury Crunchies, the best best best best best thing EVER! I ate a shitload of Crunchies EVERY day in Sydney... like 10 of these 8-inch bars EVERY DAY. I must have gained 10 pounds in the past two weeks because of this shit.

Look at all that crunchy honeycomb goodness inside. How could you resist temptation? We don't have Cadbury Crunchies in the flips so I might as well indulge while I was there.

What's a trip to Australia without taking home vegemite?
