    They seem ok for me. I'll measure the dimensions and post back tonight however I reckon it'll be fine. For me it's more for keeping the sun off than anything else.

    Must say my favorite buy so far was a half priced streetfighter 1up arcade unit.

    On the lookout now for a discounted gauntlet one in melbourne

    Ahh ok, not a worry then. If it's to actually sit in a golf buggy then they need to be the longer variety.

    Ok, measured the umbrellas and they're the same size as my old one. There's a slight difference in the folded length but that's because the Aldi ones don't have a long spike plus the handle is fractionally shorter. The canopy, the important part, measures 130 cm or 51" rib end to rib end so it's not the largest on the market but for $9.99 it'll do.

    Just grabbed two of the motion detection under counter led lights.
    Seem good for 10 bucks.
    Seems they have a daylight sensor too.

    Olive tapenade's also got great synergy with it. Personally I love it on toasted turkish bread, with olive tapenade, cherry tomatoes, bit of rocket and a squeeze of lemon or lime and a twist of black pepper. Mmm. Also absolutely killer with avocado when they're not worth a modest entry level dwelling

    Bold Eagle , given you're in brisbane, if you're not aware the olympus factory sells direct to the public (they're out cannon hill way), from memory they're about $35ish for 2kg of halloumi (and it keeps if you're careful about not cross-contaminating the brine for bloody ages), and also Triton Foods on musgrave road in west end have a whole range of cypriot halloumis for $22-$25/2kg. Fuckin soo good at that price. Triton foods is bloody awesome in general actually, everyone in brisbane and not out in the sticks should go check them out. Specialise in greek and continental stuff

    EDIT - in the case of Olympus, you literally just walk in the truck loading bay and ring the door bell, they've got a stocked fridge and one of the people inside'll come out and deal with you. Cash and Eftpos

    OK, ok - let's get down to facts I know of Triton foods as we park near there for GOMA, etc. IS it worth the $35 from Olympus?

    Well not for my money, but I'm subsisting on austudy atm :p. Probably not. Cypriot halloumi is seriously fuckoff salty though, so ymmv

    A kilo of it, wtf!?? It's best in small quantities for me, would take me a year they get through that much.

    Coles and Woolies do a similar ice cream sandwich, they aren't quite as good but they are about the same price. The Bulla ones have more flavour but aren't traditional or cheap, however the ice cream sandwiches in WA are better than any of the supermarket ones though (at least they used to be), but I think they are only available in selected stores on the east coast.

    Haha for sure, I only bought it because it was so cheap. Can only make so much blue cheese sauce for buffalo wings!
