Since I've been awol the last couple of days, I thought I ought to treat you to an around town Friday Froctacular post!
Our post work Friday started out in serious fashion.
We need a new mattress.
Our existing one is well past it's use by date.
This one is juuuuust right!
We both like a firm work bench, and had no trouble selecting a splendid mattress for a reasonable price.
G was talking away to the shop dude here, and said "why are you taking my picture?!"
"Because I'm a blogger.
That's what bloggers do."
This isn't the one we chose, but it was quite comfy and I was tempted to have a pre lunch snooze.
Then we toddled off into the central city for the first time since the February quake.
It was rather sobering (and I hadn't had a drink yet), as there isn't much of it left.
The central building was hotel, and was in a considerable slump.
It'll be good when it's gone, as then they can open up the bit of town around it.
This is Cashel Mall, now a container mall!
We liked it!
It's funky, and they've done it very neatly and colourfully!
We were hoping to find a bar, but no joy.
I am usually far too lazy to go to the annual world buskers festival, but these lovely ladies are tempting me!
They look right up my alley!
I really like this old building, and wonder if they are holding it up until it gets demoed, or until they can repair it.
Knowing the frenzied "pull it down" fever we've had, it'll come down allright!
The Old Provincial Chambers
And then it was time for a languid boozy Thai lunch at the Kum Pun.
Just pour me a frigging glass!

G got his Superfro T in Thailand some years ago.
We were pretty impressed with our carved carrot duck!
And saw Paradise quacklets on the way home!
