any years ago, in another time and life, I keep a little something back when they write their presented a little radio program on a well-loved bestselling cookbooks: how else to keep alive the allure public radio station in this Victorian city. As of their revered businesses? In these conversations I was the bloke who presents it now knows well (hello, Rafael always sure those generous chefs gave away everything: I Epstein!), apart from the obvious daily news and current wasn’t going to let them out of the studio without it. affairs obligations, having your own show is an excellent It would have made a great book. Recipes from and almost unimpeachable excuse to get people on Shannon Bennett and Robert Marchetti, to talk about stuff that you love. Yes, of course Brigitte Haffner and Andrew McConnell. it has to be relevant and interesting and worth Very funny tales of recipes gone wrong, and cook it ... the air time, but that’s not hard. Often, it’s a even the odd treasured tip of a long-gone for less terribly selfish act that, happily, can lead to a grandmother or aunt. All lost now somewhere time than wonderfully inclusive moment. In my case, it in the ionosphere. you think was cooking – one of the great passions of my But the tips and tricks must have lodged life – and damn if I didn’t get as many of the somewhere in my mind, because there I was city’s best chefs as I could on 774 Drive, all for the on Saturday afternoon with a beautiful piece of completely selfish purpose of stealing their expertise Tasmanian beef on the bench, and a half-dozen voices and pilfering a recipe or two. clamouring in my mind about the best way to prepare These conversations became a hugely enjoyable it. I know we apparently are all going to end up living segment called “The Knack”, in which culinary greats off insects and plants, but while the going is still good, shared the key, the secret to a particular dish: how to this household is a fan of traditional Australian protein, make a perfect mayonnaise, the perfect gnocchi; the and so were the chefs. I think at some point, every one trick to a great pavlova, a classic chicken sandwich, or of them came in with their version of the perfect piece a more exotic beurre blanc or red wine reduction. The of roast beef. The book may be a forlorn hope now, but conversations were specific, detailed, and I swear I could the least I can do is share with you what I remember hear pens right across Melbourne madly scratching out Melbourne’s finest telling me. the secret hints. Set the oven to 170⁰. Let the beef come to room I have always suspected that chefs, even the greats, temperature. Season liberally (I smear some French

mustard all over as well). Fire up a pan and seal for about three minutes on each side – you may need to hold the piece upright in the pan with tongs to do this. You don’t just want colour, you want a thick crust, which will seal beautifully and be delicious later. Place the meat in the oven … but how long to cook it? Ah, this was the discussion every time, with every chef who came past. Always less than you think, and mostly always at a lower temperature than you would imagine (so as not to “shock the meat” apparently … I always thought that had probably been achieved a long time before it arrived home with you …). But who was it who told me what I now regard as the golden rule? Was it Marchetti? Jeremy Strode of Pomme? That British blowhard Gordon Ramsay, who, for all his many faults, knows his way around a piece of meat? I can’t recall – but the rule is this: reduce the cooking time and double the resting time, and the meat will be juicy and beautifully rare. I did all this, and it was. And as we carved the meat into perfect, thick slices I felt all those great cooks crowd around me – my very own MasterChef moment of the imagination – nodding approvingly. And asking for the scraps. \

Voice oF

Reason Geraldine Doogue has been a civilised – and civilising – voice on television and radio for more than 30 years. PETER WILMOTH meets her at home

6 The weekly review \ june 12, 2013


t’s a great radio voice, and it’s a voice of reason and civility. We’re sitting in the Sydney sunshine in Geraldine Doogue’s back garden. Some budgies in a cage are chirping away, her 19-year-old son is dispatched to look for the family dog, who hasn’t been sighted for a while, and it’s a chance for me to grill the griller, the journalist whose warmth has exuded from television screens and radio speakers for 30 years. She’s the reasonable voice amid lots of shouting and shrillness and I ask if that’s been a deliberate stance. “I have thought about how I wanted to interview people,” she says. “In a way the cross-examiners are lionised in our profession, they ‘get’ somebody. I like a bit of that, but I have always preferred to get to motive, what’s making this person tick, why are they thinking like they’re thinking. I’m more interested in that than the ‘gotcha!’. “I tend to think that you don’t get the same applause from within my profession, but you may well get it from the broader public. I’m very impressed with people who can drive home that final nail in the coffin, but I know that what I really respect is the people who can follow through and do a forensic interview that gives the person a bit of dignity at the end of it. I think the essence of good journalism is genuine, deep-seated curiosity. Sometimes I get frustrated because I don’t see enough curiosity, I see people try to make headlines.” Doogue herself has never made headlines. She’s been a steady presence, presenting the religion-based Compass on ABC TV and Life Matters on Radio National. She now hosts a Saturday morning show on Radio National called Saturday Extra (from 7.30). “That’s my pride and joy, really,” she says. “It’s designed to be your broadsheet newspaper that you read with a cup of coffee, on radio. A lot of people, particularly Melbourne people, have this habit ... where you go in and sit with your friends and you scan the articles while you’re having a coffee. I think that’s really got a place on radio. “At 7.30-8 it’s the front pages, after 8am it’s features, and you finish going light, travel, quirky things.” She aims to weave all manner of life into the show, including business. “Not just the statistics but, ‘How does it fit into the world of ideas?’ Not to be afraid of that. I think these days, with all the voices that are around, there’s a tremendous fear of any perceived depth, and I think depth can be very sexy. I don’t think you have to be terrified of putting people off ... Give people a chance to pause and reflect and try to make sense of things. I think that can be immensely attractive.” Doogue grew up in Perth wanting to be a teacher. “Something safe,” she says. “I ended up doing very unsafe things. The media is not a safe world.” At the University of Western Australia, she befriended Kim Beazley, who was a couple of years ahead of her. Doogue was bridesmaid at both of his weddings. She almost launched into teaching but was offered a cadetship by The West Australian. “Something propelled me to give it a go and I just knew I was home.” She started her cadetship in 1972. “Fantastic time to be in journalism,” she says. “Gough Whitlam was elected at the end of the year. Loads of stories. It was just such fun.” She travelled to London for Beazley’s marriage to his first wife, Mary, and stayed for a few years. In 1981 she moved to Sydney with her first husband, journalist Tim Blue. A few years later she was offered the job of Perth-based compere of the ABC’s current affairs program, Nationwide. It was her first role outside newspapers. “I lost about a stone and a half [9.5 kilos] from nervous energy,” she says. “It was hard. Daily live television is tough. Coming after TDT [This Day Tonight], a great era was ending, and a new one beginning. There’s very different instincts involved in newspaper and television fronting, but fantastic

Picture \ John Donegan opportunities. Once you get over the terror you think, ‘Oh well, I’ll just bat on’.” She was soon back in Sydney fronting Nationwide’s NSW edition. After a stint in commercial radio and television, she returned to ABC TV, where she garnered multiple awards, including the United Nations Media Peace Prize for her coverage of the Gulf War. In 1998, she began presenting Compass and became standard bearer for religious faith and spirituality on television. I ask how much her own beliefs as a Catholic have informed that program. “Because I have been exposed to belief all my life, I’m not afraid of going there. When I watch a lot of people in straight news and current affairs, I watch them interview people and get close to the issue of belief and then they back off, observably frightened, that they’ll be accused of being believers. There’s a real image that if you’re perceived to be a believer, in news and current affairs, there’s a perceived risk that you lose your objectivity. I think it’s a load of absolute rubbish.” She says people learn to keep their beliefs quiet. “In a way, I learnt years ago. I thought, ‘Look, I either worry about this or I don’t’. And because I believed you could do very good journalism in this space – in fact I think it’s a greatly underdone area – I decided I wasn’t going to let it bother me.” I ask whether her faith helps her understand some of the issues we’re facing, such as child abuse and paedophile priests. “Definitely,” she says. “I think it’s

helped some of the children, didn’t help others.” There were four children in the Doogue and Carroll household, from different marriages. I suggest that talking about the issues of the day could be a great gift for children. “Yes, but we’ve all got a certain cup of energy and you do wonder in retrospect whether you had enough for the little things. We certainly tried, and I think we did. “I know people who forbade all phone calls after six o’clock at night just so they could give total time to their children. These are people in very busy careers. And I sometimes wish we’d done a bit more of that. I hope we modelled our utter enjoyment of our working life, which I think is a lovely thing to model too.” How did being a journalist interlace with her role as a parent? “It used to be a [family] joke, we’d yell at the television news. ‘Oh what rubbish is this!’ Because we’d been absorbed in it all day or I had to do an interview about it or Ian had to commission something, because he was running things all our married life.” Now Doogue is a grandmother to Taya, who is 18 months old, and she’s loving her role. “She was born only three weeks after Ian died. There was something remarkable about life and death in that. I wish he could have held her in his arms. It was his daughter’s child. But it’s wonderful. I try to see her as much as I can and be a reliable grandmother. “I really want to be reliable to my stepdaughter, Genevieve ... On Tuesday afternoon she can do whatever she likes and I’m there. I feel, with young mothers, the best thing you can give them is to say, ‘Look I’ll be available Tuesday and Thursday, if you want to sit and look at the television, just have a cup of coffee, do the

“i know people who forbade all phone calls after six at night so they could give total time to their children. i sometimes wish we’d done a bit more of that.” allowed me to understand issues inside Islam. And issues inside Buddhism. And issues inside Judaism. I think that if you are not afraid of having a belief system you then are open to a whole lot of other belief systems, belief systems generally. “People know it about you. They will agree to an interview. You ask questions differently if you are not afraid of admitting you are some form of believer.”


n a sphere where having faith has been so unfashionable, Compass has been an island. “Radio National, my network, has always maintained quite a strong religion unit, but there’s nothing like that on local radio, nothing on commercial radio or TV ... That went right out 25 years ago.” In 2011, Doogue’s second husband, television executive Ian Carroll, died from pancreatic cancer, aged 64. He was pivotal to the creation of many ABC programs, such as Nationwide, Lateline, The 7.30 Report and Four Corners. Doogue and Carroll were what Doogue would probably be appalled to hear described as a media power couple. It was an epic love story, a 27-year relationship. “It was a big, emotional connection, a relationship that transforms you. Big relationships that change you can’t be easily repeated. You’ve just got to accept that they don’t come along that much.” It helped that they were in the same industry. “We talked immensely about it all. It was wonderful.” Did she ever a worry there was too much journalism talk in the house? “I’ve thought about whether we, in retrospect, both thought, ‘Did we just have too much of that around us, the kids hearing so much?’ It probably

washing, have a facial, do whatever you want to do, I’ll be there. If you want to talk to me, I’ll be there’. Just to be reliable. And to just enjoy the baby and hopefully let her enjoy me. I’m learning. I’ve got training wheels on.” Was parenthood her greatest achievement? “Definitely. It’s highly creative, both to you and to them. It’s forming a person, watching them, facilitating them on their terms. That’s the big thing you learn. You have to allow them to be who they are going to be, not who you want them to be.” I ask about her children’s reaction to having famous parents. “I don’t think kids like being in the public eye. And I think they get drawn in whether or not they like it ... I think most people in the public eye say, ‘I don’t think this has been ideal for my kids’.” Doogue has no plans to retire. “I’d certainly like to be on the ABC for a few more years, to find out what you can do and what you can say out loud, what venue you can give other people to speak at a deep level when they’re not invited to elsewhere.” She speaks often to young people and offers some words on career. “I say, ‘Meet your deadlines, be gracious to people and do well enough to be invited back’.” For 30 years, as she entered our homes on radio and television, the gracious Geraldine Doogue has been invited back, many times. \ PS: The missing dog was taken by two French people to a local café for a latte and later returned safe and sound.

Sustainable fashion meets art at The Light Factory’s The Ethics of Style exhibition.

\ jane rocca investigates the ethics of style

10 The weekly review \ june 12, 2013



he relationship between sustainability and wearable art is the essence that holds The Ethics of Style exhibition together. Curated by Sigrid McCarthy and showing at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham, the event looks at how fashion and sustainable design can live in unison. “I didn’t want to merely recreate something that had essentially been done many times before,” McCarthy says. “With this in mind, I decided to approach talented local designers that in my opinion were approaching sustainability in interesting and unique ways.” In The Ethics Of Style, a handful of aspiring designers strut their talent through outfits that have been made with sustainable practice in mind. Their designs are teamed with the works of established fashion illustrators to provide an integrated approach. From illustrator Kerrie Hess to designer Rachael Cassar’s dresses made from recycled materials, the exhibition is designed to challenge perceptions about what is sustainable fashion and offers two- and three-dimensional experiences. “I want to alter people’s perceptions of sustainable fashion by showcasing beautiful design that wouldn’t necessarily be expected,” McCarthy says. “I don’t believe a garment should scream, ‘I’m sustainable’. It should be functional, stylish and aesthetically pleasing, while also being ethical.” Kerrie Hess, who recently moved back to Brisbane after a long stint overseas, including time in London, Hong Kong and Paris, has made a name for herself as a talented illustrator. If the surname rings a bell, it’s because her sister, Megan, is in the same field.

Inspired by Paris, vintage fashion magazines and street fashion, Hess has scored some great gigs over the years, from her first job with Vogue at 19, to publishing a stylebook called Shoestring Chic and working on a capsule collection with Kate Spade New York. Her illustrations appear on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s 15th anniversary edition with Collette Dinnigan – a great coup for the artist. “I jumped at the chance to be involved in this exhibition,” says Hess, whose illustrations are on show in the Printemps department store in Paris right now – on 13-metre billboards. “I love that The Light Factory is celebrating fashion illustration with a focus on sustainability. I think fashion illustration is finally making it back onto magazine covers, into frames in people’s homes and fashion windows again, which is lovely,” she says. The exhibition also features the designs of Gemma Anastasiou and Joseph Jang. “They all invest a lot of time and energy into their pieces, and we hope that they will influence people to appreciate good craftsmanship and high-quality materials,” McCarthy says. “After all, this is key to reducing our world’s unbelievable consumption rates.” Cassar says her pieces explore the notion of upcycling. She is up to her ninth collection this year. “The pieces I have chosen to exhibit portray my signature style.” “Each design has been hand sewn by me using the deconstruction process whereby preloved garments have been deconstructed and reconstructed to create something new.” Cassar says being sustainable shouldn't be a choice,

it should be a given. “We are all aware of the state of our environment,” she says. “To me, fashion design should reflect our time, so it should reflect our social responsibility towards our natural environment.” McCarthy agrees and says the aim of the exhibition is to show consumers the perks of being fashionable and ethical. “Beauty can be found in seemingly redundant items of clothing, simply through refashioning them. Joseph Jang’s avant-garde pieces – which are made from recycled denim jeans found in op shops – are testament to this notion,” McCarthy says. Accompanying the exhibition is a refashioning workshop hosted by local fashion writer and TWR journalist, Leeyong Soo. “We hope that all these components of the exhibition will help consumers re-evaluate the lifespan of their garments,” McCarthy says. \

re our beauty aisles multicultural? Just think about it for a few moments. As Australians we pride ourselves as the poster children of multiculturalism. We embrace all and sundry, it is in our DNA or at least that is what I took for granted. I was speechless when the question was put to me recently by several people. It got me thinking. Foundations and concealers are the cornerstone of any women’s make-up arsenal and sadly not all brands cater to everyone. Many a time I have sat through a complexion product launch to be stunned by the narrowness of the imported colour range. Our cousins in America and Britain have their pick from the same brands available here. The most popular and widely available brands have the colours, but they are just not offered in their full line-up here. One industry insider, who wishes to remain nameless, says, “Dark complexion products are not as easy to formulate as it is difficult to get the recipe right to cover

tonal variations in the skin. In Australia we also do not have the population to sustain a large colour range but this I can assure you will change in the future”. That is perfect for the future, but what about those who need darker shades now. I agree with the comment about tonal variations in darker skin. I know of make-up artists working with the likes of Naomi Campbell, Azealia Banks and Zoe Saldana who mix at least two to three shades to get the balance right. We all have tonal variations in our skin, but in darker skin the difference is more obvious. Darker skin tones also need products that give depth to their skin; if not they will look one-dimensional and ashy. Experienced make-up artists mix in a bit of red to give the skin some

warmth but it can also be easily overcome by adding a smidgen of gold-hued liquid luminiser to the foundation before application. Correct me if I am wrong, but I found no budget-priced brand that offers a colour range suited to someone darker than your average tanned olive-skinned person. Thankfully not all is lost. If you look you will find and these brands not only carry darker skin shades, they will also willingly find the right products and give you tips on how to perfect your complexion. \ To read more reviews

SHARING THE SPOTLIGHT Maggie McKenna doesn’t regret the hard work, writes jo davy


or a performer enjoying her first taste of the spotlight, Maggie McKenna doesn’t mind sharing the stage with her peers. The 16-year-old won a prized lead vocalist role in the 2013 Victorian State Schools Spectacular, and says that while solos are a huge coup, she’s having just as much fun performing in an ensemble. “Working with those talented performers has been such an amazing experience,” she says of the principal cast of 47 students who will sing, dance and beatbox their way through two professionally staged shows at Hisense Arena on July 27. McKenna, an Elsternwick resident, was encouraged to try out after seeing friends perform in previous years, and admits the process of auditions and callbacks was “a little intense”. She’ll perform solos in Firework by Katy Perry and in Pokerface by Lady Gaga, and is a cast member in several other ensemble pieces, all exploring the show’s theme: There’s No Place Like Home. Rehearsal schedules have dominated her weekends for most of the year, but McKenna, who is halfway through year 11 at Swinburne Senior Secondary College, knows it’ll all be worth it in the end.

“You get exhausted, but you know what’s going to come out of it, and that you’ll never regret all that hard work,” she says. Spectacular’s principal performers and 3000-strong support cast from more than 130 government schools have been rehearsing under the tutelage of creative director Neill Gladwin, music director Chong Lim and dance director Troy Phillips. “They taught us to get down to what the song really means, so you’re not just singing without an emotion, that’s probably what I’ve learnt most,” says McKenna. Her extensive resumé demonstrates McKenna is no stranger to community youth theatre, but her proudest accomplishment to date is winning the 2008 NAB Songwriting Contest for ages 16 and under. After VCE, she plans to pursue a career in acting or musical theatre, a goal that seems a little more attainable when you consider the success of her Spectacular alums: singer Vanessa Amorosi, actress Hany Lee, and musical theatre star Jaz Flowers. “It’s really exciting in that aspect, because there have been so many amazing performers that have come out of Spectacular,” says McKenna. “I would love to be in their position one day.” \

Education \ There is a lot more to literacy than reading, writes CHERYL CRITCHLEY


line of school students walks through Chadstone Shopping Centre, one behind the other, books proudly held aloft in reading pose as they stroll past fashion boutiques and food shops. Bemused shoppers enjoy the display, but some can’t quite work it out. Who are these kids? Why the books? Where are their mobile phones? The unique human chain was the brainchild of Oakleigh Grammar’s head of English, Erik Rinkel, who said it was all quite elementary. Rinkel organised the years 6-8 student conga line to send a message to our fast-paced world. “We needed to make a statement about the fact that kids have the right to read,” he says. “It was a massive statement that kids, given the chance, will read and will do so proudly and independently. “So they needed to be seen to exercise that right in a public place. And what’s more public around here than Chadstone? People were going ‘my god, they’re reading’. It’s like this alien craft has landed with these strange people.” The kids loved it. “I think they understood the purpose and were part of the discussion to begin with,” says Rinkel, who likes

hands to answer questions, not to ask them.” Despite the negative experience, Rinkel, whose mother had trained as a teacher, already wanted to teach. A quiet, perceptive child, he knew the Dutch school’s attitude was wrong. “From the moment I was out of utero I wanted to be a teacher. I was really drawn to the nature of schools.” Rinkel enjoyed his secondary school years at Westall High School (now Secondary College), and his new country’s weather and gardens. His teachers were also inspirational, cementing his career choice. “I think we had some really dedicated, keen teachers that went an awfully long way for kids of my ilk who didn’t have a lot but did have brains. And I was in a year level where I think all of us passed in year 12. That was a huge credit, I think, to the people that taught us.” The only time Rinkel did not sing or perform was his early years in Melbourne; the arts were not huge in 1960s’ government primary schools. “The music teacher at my primary school offered me a place in the Australian Boys Choir and I couldn’t think of anything worse because I saw their costumes,” he says, laughing. Rinkel won a teaching studentship to Monash

t was 1977, and fordigraphs – hand-wound roller copiers that produced smelly worksheets – were the height of technology. Not that this mattered. While he embraces the modern world, Rinkel says the most important factor in learning has always been, and will always be, good relationships. “The No.1 resource is the teacher and the No.2 resource is the students,” he says. “Then we see what we need to bring in. There are many countries … that are so poor and they have thriving classrooms. They barely have a book, or a pencil is a thing to be shared among a whole class. It doesn’t mean those children aren’t learning.” The same goes for parents, whom Rinkel encourages to share the world of language with their children. “Listen to each other read, do language games, play all sorts of games around words and sentences and just enjoy language so that when they come across things they don’t know they’re happy to look things up and try to work out what they mean,” he says. “Just be intelligent about language use. It’s the greatest tool we’ve got.” In the early 1980s, Rinkel moved to Singapore, where he taught at a teachers’ college and the National

to think outside the box when it comes to education. “It was just wonderful.” Rinkel, 59, also takes students on discovery tours around the school, where they are encouraged to sow seeds for their creative writing. “We could have a ‘murders of Oakleigh tour’, say, with the year 6 class and we hunt for clues around different areas around the property as to what might have occurred in particular places. They have notepads … and they become reporters. We might go back and see some of the re-enactments of what they suggested.” Such creativity is the hallmark of Rinkel’s teaching career and life. As a small child in Amsterdam he sang with its symphony orchestra, despite missing a significant chunk of school due to illness. When he was 10, Rinkel’s parents migrated to Melbourne. A sister was already here, a brother came with them and another brother stayed in the Netherlands. They settled in Clayton and Rinkel attended Clayton East Primary School, where he quickly learnt English. His migrant experience was positive, partly due to the openness of our schools compared to the fundamentalist Christian school he had attended in Amsterdam. “There were planks under the desks that we had to permanently put our feet on and those were not to move,” he says. “We were only allowed to raise our

University of Singapore. Daughter Zoë, now 30, was born there and second daughter Miki, 23, when the family returned to Australia. Singapore was a culture shock after our open classrooms. “They were very reluctant to have discussions,” Rinkel says. “Of course, with my background, the thing I worry about the most is students who won’t talk. But they were fearful of saying the wrong thing. It was like it was a danger to them. But still it was a very wonderful teaching experience.” While teaching in Singapore, Rinkel still found time for his other passion, theatre, and even did floor shows at Raffles Hotel. Back in Melbourne, he taught English at St Michael’s in St Kilda for three years and then drama at The Peninsula School in Mt Eliza for 12. He ran his own theatre company, The Metropolitan Theatre, performed opera and wrote about 30 radio plays. After returning to Monash in 2006 to study a master’s degree in music, Rinkel started at Oakleigh Grammar as head of English, which soon became his focus. He has not yet finished the master’s, but continues to write. Recent projects include a film script.


t Oakleigh, Rinkel loves opening the minds of the close-knit school’s 520 students from preschool to year 12. “It is a community. There’s something really nice about a lot of kids knowing each other because it’s like an extended family. It’s really quite liberating for them. I think it helps them to feel secure.” Most important to this English teacher is writing with soul and speaking well, fluently and with purpose. He understands the challenges technology poses to English, but does not shy away from using it. Both can coexist, and at Oakleigh Grammar the students have also embraced technology and are enjoying the freedom and creativity of electronic whiteboards and iPads. When it comes to the shorthand language of text messages, Rinkel is fine with it as long as appropriate English is used when needed. “One unavoidable fact is that students need to learn to hand write under pressure for VCE exams, so technology must cede to tradition sometimes,” he says. “[But] we can’t not embrace technology, because it’s everywhere. It’s in all jobs that I can think of and for our students it’s the greatest learning tool, apart from their brain and their relationship with the teacher, that they’re likely to come across because they’re able to use it in so many different ways. “I think whatever way society decides to head, I’m not going to go into mourning because of the loss of handwriting and I’m not going to go into mourning now that we all use computers. Whatever will be is surely what’s going to be decided by society as a good thing. “Change is inevitable and to resist is futile. There is no point bemoaning this generation and how things are done differently to when we were students; it all works out in the end anyway. “You remember that song in the musical Bye Bye Birdie – ‘why can’t they be like we were, perfect in every way, oh what’s the matter with kids today?’ – I think the eternal devaluing of the younger generation is a bit like that. Kids grow out of their own culture once they learn who they are and they all become … sensible dignified adults with their own kids that they worry about. So the cycle just goes on.” \ » Oakleigh Grammar, 77-81 Willesden Road, Oakleigh, 3166. 9569 6128 » june 12, 2013 \ The weekly review 17

Motoring \ appearances can be deceiving writes rod easdown


Mitsubishi Mirage What is it? A small car at a small price. What’s in it? A 57-kilowatt 1.2-litre three-cylinder with a continuously variable auto. is it thirsty? i used 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 5.5 in the country. The official combined figure is 4.6.


esearch indicates that the number of car buyers taking test drives is steadily declining. And with so many cars now being pretty generic, a bit like fridges and microwaves, that’s entirely understandable. But driving can still make a big difference. Let me present the Mitsubishi Mirage. It’s a terrific showroom car. It looks good. The interior is well finished with pleasant surfaces and no bare metal. The front seats are OK, roominess is good for a car of this size and the cargo space is usable with a 60/40 folding rear seat. The controls are clear, the instruments are fine. It has everything you need, including Bluetooth and USB, and the LS ($21,099 auto) gets automatic headlights and wipers, a proximity key and climate control. Sitting in the showroom, you’d happily consider it a proposition. Now drive it. The first thing you discover is how noisy it is. The little 1.2-litre sounds like a diesel, partly because it has three-cylinders and partly because corners have been cut with soundproofing. It’s all mechanical noise but by the time you reach freeway speeds there’s a heap of road noise in the equation too. Another corner has been cut with the audio, which is pretty crook. Rip out and replace the speakers because I doubt they cost Mitsubishi much. On the road you learn what 57 kilowatts can do and more importantly what they can’t. They can’t beat the work truck beside you

rip out and replace the speakers because i doubt they cost mitsubishi much to the lane merge and they don’t overtake smartly. In traffic your foot is not infrequently on the floor. The body integrity is less reassuring than, say, a Mazda 2 or a Hyundai i20, and the Mirage lacks their refinement. You’ll note that the rear brakes are drums, while the Mazda and Hyundai get discs. The Mirage leans in tight corners and doesn’t like being hurried, and the ride

is firmish, about what you expect from something of this size and weight. But the economy is sensational. I also tried a five-speed manual (a bit quicker, even noisier) and its economy is similar to the auto. And the Mirage is a bargain. Don’t go by the official prices here, ask for a deal.

Behind the picket fence, this red-brick Edwardian house, just around the corner from the bustling strip of Glen Huntly Road, offers warmth and a homely feel. There are parquetry floors and downlights beaming from high ceilings. The broad windows of the spacious front bedroom are topped by contrasting apple-green and strawberry-toned stained-glass panes, with a beautiful ceiling rose above and thick, chocolate-coloured carpet below. The second bedroom is also a good size, with one wall given over to built-in wardrobes. A spacious lounge has a beautifully detailed period fireplace in one corner, with silvery metal and contrasting black tiles with turquoise and lemon-coloured floral detail. If fires are not your style, there is also ducting heating throughout. A stainless-steel oven in the kitchen is housed in a tiled arch with a deep timber shelf above it, and there’s a sunroom or separate dining room to the rear. The bathroom, powder room and a European laundry are all off these spaces, with a low-maintenance courtyard. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Once a traditional Californian bungalow, this house, owned by an architect, has been transformed into a very stylish and practical home with the skilful combination of period features and fresh contemporary ideas. High fencing renders the front garden private. Etched-glass front doors feature a butterfly motif that’s subtly reinforced by hallway wallpaper. Three bedrooms are off the hall, which finishes at a family bathroom with an elongated basin and a sunken bath/shower. A nifty en suite with euro laundry is off the family room. The living room has folding glass doors to the front garden and the central dining room has up-lit cabinetry and a fireplace with fluted-tile detail. Open to the dining room, the super-cool kitchen is designed with plentiful storage, CaesarStone benchtops and Miele appliances. The indoor/outdoor family room and kitchen opens with concertina doors to the rear deck. Elevated and bordered by inbuilt seating, this deck also features an enclosed studio or fourth bedroom. \ KAY KEIGHERY

Built in 1969, during the summer of love, this property certainly is a loveable character. An open-plan living and meals area creates an appealing hub, with an L-shaped kitchen with white cabinetry to one side. Polished hardwood floors add a feeling of warmth to each room. The main bedroom has a spacious, built-in wardrobe that includes a dressing table, while the second bedroom next door is a generous space. There’s a well-appointed bathroom, while a separate powder room and a laundry with side access are tucked next to each other. Things get really interesting outside. A large west-facing garden embraces the idea of self-sufficiency with veggie planters, strawberry, raspberry and blueberry bushes. But there’s one more treat in store. Head through the one-car garage, follow the red brick-path of the side yard and you’ll come to an unexpected but welcome private courtyard ringed by trees. It’s the perfect spot for entertaining, or at least it will be when that loving summer comes around again. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

It’s all period charm up front behind a picket fence, but the owners have taken these attractive bones and added a contemporary flourish. In particular, they’ve added a third bedroom, which makes the house ideal for growing families. Two bedrooms are side-by-side, one with built-in wardrobes, while the main bedroom up front also has a built-in wardrobe. All three share an immaculate bathroom with a flourish of art-deco style on the door handle and the mirrored cabinet, while complementary cream and oatmeal-coloured tiles are punctuated with a splash of mosaic detail. Tasmanian oak floors are another bonus, as are the ceilings that sit about three metres high. If you’re never happier than when you’re cooking up a storm, then the enormous horseshoe-shaped kitchen that dominates the open-plan living space to the rear of this property will be a serious boon. The laundry is off to one side of this space, and there’s a partially covered deck out back, plus a double carport at the side. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL
