Melia, Matty and Me (Sydney Oct 06)
« on: October 17, 2006, 04:12:33 AM »
I don't quite know what to say. I'm not the most eloquent at the best of times and the sinus infection I seem to have developed is making my head foggy, to say the least.

Melia. She is sweeter than any honey I've ever tasted.
Matty. Well, Matty is damned, a damned fine man.

I'll let the pics tell the rest of the story.

But a quick freshen up back at the ranch, followed by a lovely meal at Tumnak Thai and we were off to Palms. How to describe Palms, mmmm. Not flash, not particularly cool, but oh so much fun. Noone cares who you are, or what you look like, and everyone knows the words to everyone song. It's one big happy singalong for gays and their friends.

Hello boys!!!

Well, we spent 48 hours together and it has taken me 48 hours to merely start recovering! I had just about got the energy together to start a thread when I got a text from Steve saying he'd started this one...then I was called for my dinner! Well, I'm here now...

So, what can I say...? IT WAS FAB!!!

Matty is as deliciously wicked as he appears on here...but an absolute absolute sweetheart! Yes, I told you I'd out you as a softy, Mattymoo...and don't you even try to deny it young man…or I’ll instruct Steve to post the videos too!

Stephen, well, I could just spread him on a cream cracker and eat him all up! He is the sweethearts of all sweethearts, a gentle gentle soul with a heart of gold!

Two very very different characters but both incredible human beings with huge hearts! And Melia feels like the luckiest girl on AM because she got to meet them and hug them and kiss them in the flesh…not to mention drive them both insane taking endless photos…sorry boys, but it had to be done, and aren’t you both glad now!

The 48 hours was crammed with endless talking and laughter, food and drink and immeasurable amounts of FUN! We also managed to fit in some famous bridge, some famous opera house, and - like Steve has already shared - a ferry trip to Manley beach, some lovely lovely boy-spotting, a yummy Thai meal (shhhh boys...don't give away any more of Melia's secrets!) and a night out at Palms on Sydney’s in famous Oxford Street…FAB FAB FAB!!!

Stephen, you little minx, posting that photo of me asleep! Where's the one of Matty after his dirty stop-out? I emailed it to you...yes Matty dear, I'm taking you down with me honey!

Miss Melia is having an AWESOME time here down under…so much so she has changed her ticket, to stay for an extra week! Can't wait to do lunch this week Steve sweetie...

Love hugs & kisses to you both, you wonderful wonderful souls! (yes, even you have a soul Matty dear!)

A very happy Melia  :-* :-*

I thank you both with all my heart. It was a momentous step for me in my journey of living with hiv and the icing on a scrumptious cake as far as my incredible trip down under is going so far. It is a weekend I will never ever forget.

My heart feels fit to burst!

You mean this one, Melia? Naturally, as I've spent most of the evening downloading these pics I have taken the liberty of not posting bad pics of me, except a couple where my lypo belly shows - even I'm not perfect.  :o ::)

Oh yeah, now you will be here for the Sydney Food and Wine Fair on 28th of October - the AIDS fundraiser.  ;D

Alas Matty the Damned can't go to the AIDS Victim Fair on the 28th. He has a Party Conference to attend. Nevertheless he will turn Miss Melia's shirt into a faboo animated avvy.

Might be seeing Matty again Friday for lunch and goodbyes :'( and hopefully Food and Wine Fayre in Hyde Park on Saturday with Steve.

Just sayin...and bragging...and bumping our lovely thread, haha! :P

Not ready to leave Oz AT ALL...WAAAHHH!

Was great seeing Melia again.
You can thank Tawqeet for lunch, Melia. I had $15 on Tawqeet to win the Caulfield Cup on Saturday. It paid 19 to 1, so I collected $285 - yippey!!!

I spent half the lunch trying to convince Melia to emigrate to Aus. I'll have Matty work her over a bit more on Friday.  ;D ;D ;D

Mum's pressuring me about the weekend, but I'll see what I can do.
