Timelapse/video of Vivid Sydney 2013

Since getting a video capable DSLR and my Sony NEX, I’ve been a lot more fascinated with video and filming. As part of Vivid this year, I felt like I could put something together and the video below is the result of that. Continue reading Timelapse/video of Vivid Sydney 2013

New workplace – Commonwealth Bank Place

So in a little under 3 weeks time, I make the move across to our shiny new building which took over the site of the old Sega World in Darling Harbour. New building comes with a new style of working, a more advanced version of hot desking known as ‘activity based working’. Plenty of glass surrounds the building to let in a lot of natural light as well as making it look pretty.

Inside is very modern and looks classy as soon as you step through the front door, although it’s got a revolving door (which i absolutely hate)

Lobby (north)
Looking up the atrium

No longer will people have permanent desks, it’s all about moving around and being mobile, at least they’re using mesh chairs :D.

New workspaces

Each area on the floors has its own feel/scheme to it with varying colours and textures.

Kitchen area

Plenty of funky new furniture around, like these ear chairs which help project/retain your voice, making it easier to talk to people.

Funky 'ear' chairs

Best bit about the building is the top floor, level 6.

Top floor

It’s got a great view overlooking the Pyrmont direction and is a nice area to go outside and chill. Would make for a great place for Friday drinks.

Top floor looking out

It’s even got a BBQ! I had hoped to be able to use it to cook up a storm for lunch, but alas I have been disappointed and the BBQ needs to be booked or used for catering/functions only.

BBQ on the top floor

Balcony outside is definitely very nice and we get a tiny patch to build up a community vegie patch, as you can see, it’s sorta dead at the moment.

Rooftop balcony

Can’t wait to move in and to have some new shops/restaurants open up around and downstairs, I’ve read that Brazillian BBQ is already in the works and that makes me a happy man. Oh, did I mention we all got Mac laptops?

Phil and Yvonne’s 21st

A couple of weeks ago we head to Strike Bowling bar in Darling Harbour to celebrate Phillip Dang and Yvonne Lau’s 21st b’day and it was a fun filled night involving bowling, pool and karaoke and plenty of photos from Ethan, myself and a bit of Gab. Hope Phil and Yvonne had a good time and judging by the photos they did, so once again happy birthday :). Pictures are below, you’ve gotta love the expressions on their faces in the cover photo =D. (It just has to be up).
