A wee trip today to Bondi Junction to buy a new bulb for the fridge – as we were somewhat tired of groping around in the dark and hoping we came out with the foodstuff we went in for. We had the foresight to take the old bulb with us & the purchase was surprisingly painless (especially as the original bulb had no identifying marks & the fridge is somewhat old – although not old enough to be cool**).
We checked out the newly opened Westfields – Grace Bros (I will never call it Myer) is very white, stark and reminiscent of late 80s minimalist. I guess I am accustomed to the City Store, because they seemed to have a very limited (and quite average) range of stuff.
We were discussing the Bondi Junction development at work recently. Apparently the national average visits to a mall is 1 per month – in the Eastern Suburbs it is once a week. The national average spend per visit is $25, Eastern Suburbs is $100. I’m afraid I fall on Eastern Suburbs side of the equation. I find these stats (if they are accurate) a little difficult to believe – I can well believe the Eastern Suburbs figures, but given the number of people at malls all over Sydney every weekend with trollies over-flowing with /stuff/, I really question the once a month/$25 a visit average.
**no pun intended.
