*COMPETITION* Win a meal for two with Jigocity.com.au

There is such an array of deals websites out there, hand up who has about five million e-mails coming into their inbox from the likes of Cudo, Spreets, Groupon and LivingSocial?! Thought so!

I am one of those people that buys a diving course as a ‘bargain’ for $50, which should’ve been $250, but then never use it, so waste money rather than save! So imagine how refreshing it was to come across a website that provides the same service but thinks a little bit outside of the box to reward you for your loyalty and continued support.

JigoCity Daily Deals (www.jigocity.com.au) launched in 2010 as a suite of global, high quality daily deals websites that
offer great discounts of up to 91% off the best local experiences while offering businesses a targeted marketing tool for attracting new customers.  Founded by a group of global entrepreneurs, JigoCity is dedicated to delivering top daily group buying deals

 What is the prize?

Seafood Banquet in Leichardt – http://www.jigocity.com.au/sydney/CrepesKingdom

If you thought Leichardt was only known for its Italian Pastas and Pizzas then you are rudely mistaken. Nestled in the Italian Piazza is the famous Crepes Kingdom that is fast becoming known for its delicious menu and friendly service.

YUM!

Now you too can experience this revolution with today’s deal fit for a king and queen with a Fresh Seafood Platter for 2 including Prawns, Calamari, Scallops, Octopus, Fish, Salad and Chip sides and 2 Glasses of complimentary Wine for only $35. I’m actually salivating at the thought.

This deal is normally valued at $73, meaning you save over 52% and can enjoy tasty underwater delights without it sinking your wallet!

Yes Crepes Kingdom is famously known for its sweet and savoury crepes, so why seafood? Well the friendly team at Crepes Kingdom believe that diners should enjoy a complete hearty meal not just a tasty dessert.

So what better main meal option than to provide the most sort after seafood delights in a platter that your tastebuds will revel in! The seafood is sourced from the freshest suppliers and is complimented by a wine picked especially for seafood.

Not only is the food to die for but so is the venue. Situated in the pleasant location of the Italian Piazza the views and the atmosphere let you experience the magic of an Italian Forum without having to travel miles. You can choose to
dine inside or outside and the friendly servers will gladly accommodate any request you have.

A note: Don’t sweat the small stuff

Hi all my lovely blog followers,

 I just wanted to do a post with a very different topic today, as I have had something terrible that has happened to two of my friends.

In a second I realised that you can’t sweat the small stuff, there are more important things to worry about and that life’s too short. I guess the connotations of those remarks can be taken as they will, but essentially I have been inspired by the strength of my friends that have been directly affected by these terrible events, and those that have been there to pick them up when they needed them the most.

 This terrible accident two weeks ago that has left our local community back home shell shocked, along with many friends over here!

What happened?

Two good friends from my home town have been in holiday in Australia having the time of their lives, a six month break to see Australia with all of their best friends. They’ve travelled around and worked hard. They were due to go home in four weeks…

They went away for Easter to Surfers Paradise and has a great time. That was until one of the guys got caught up in the middle of someone else’s fight (wrong place wring time, he wouldn’t hurt a fly). He was knocked unconscious by a guy who hit him around the head with a chair. He collapsed, but came round shortly after.

Three days later he was back in Sydney and he felt faint, he ended up passing out and having a severe seizure. After being rushed into hospital they concluded that he has in fact fractured his skull as a result of the blow to the head and fluid had been leaking on his brain. He has been told just this week that it is infected and he will not be able to leave the hospital for at least one month. No one yet knows what the long term effects will be.

Whilst he was undergoing brain surgery his best friend offered to cover his job for him so that  he didn’t lose it. It was on a building site in Randwick. On his first day (whilst his friends was undergoing brain surgery)a terrible accident happened, a crate of heavy timber fell onto him, leaving him with a broken spine and no feeling below his neck. He is in Randwick hospital and needs 24 hours care, the outcome of his injuries is yet unknown (he has been given just a 10% chance he’ll ever walk again). His parents have just arrived in Australia to support him.

How you can help:

The fundraiser will be on Friday 20th May at the Kogarah RSL, I will post the flyer up later today.

They have already secured lots of prizes for a raffle on the day. Prizes include rugby shirts, meals for two, hotel stay for two in city, XBOX 360, HTC Desire and HTC Mozart, 20th Century Fox DVDs and many more!  

Hopefully you’ll be able to make it to the event, if not if you’re able to donate any prizes, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Thank you in advance for any kind donations (big or small) towards this worthy cause.
