BY JOE ARMAO, Oakleigh

Sunset reflections on Dandenong Road. ●

In the fickle world of television and entertainment, in which talent and shows are turned over faster than Eddie McGuire goes through Millionaire Hot Seat contestants, there are few with the endurance of Sam Newman and The Footy Show. Regardless of your view on Newman (captured for this edition by photographer Julian Kingma), after 25 years front and centre of the Channel Nine flagship he is as compelling as ever. Journalist Peter Wilmoth met the AFL legend, as The Footy Show celebrates a quarter of a century on air, to reflect on a life and career – and opinions – played out in the spotlight. ●

am Newman, provocateur, controversialist and self-confessed “dinosaur”, “Luddite” and “troglodyte”, is the longest-serving member of The Footy Show panel. He’s been there since the get-go in 1994 when Eddie McGuire invented and realised the show, and has saddled up for his 25th year. “I’m just a survivor, not necessarily successful, just a survivor,” Newman says. “I suppose a quarter of a century – that is survival in this very competitive world.” It sure is. He could never have imagined it lasting this long. “We were given six weeks by Ian Johnson, the then boss of Nine. I think Kerry Packer said … ‘How would a f---ing football show survive without actually showing football?’ That was how much confidence everyone had in us.” But that was the trick. No football, but lots of Newman. Football players, sure, but with Newman there to prompt them against “yeah/nah” mediocrity. Say something, man! Why did it succeed? “We took an irreverent look at football, well I did anyhow,” he says. “Eddie was a

hard news hound. We had a bit for everyone. We used to go out and chat to people on the streets. We got belted severely for doing that. We never have and never will make any apology for the people we spoke to.” This is a topic Newman has addressed before – with accusations that The Footy Show chose to highlight vulnerable people on its Street Talk segment. But broadly this outlook conforms to his overarching view that too many are looking too hard for slip-ups, especially from the demonised unPC, unfiltered, unreconstructed Newman. “There’s a competition going on to see who can be the most righteous in society,” he says. “It’s gone from tongue-in-cheek comment and parody or comedic or satirical … it has now become so focused on you saying something that might be misconstrued by someone examining what you say with a microscope that they can now hang those old cliches on you like racist or sexist or homophobic or bigoted … It is bemusing to listen to people go through that narrative. It’s interesting to see how small-minded and petty people can be.”


“When people stop being so biased about Donald Trump, they will suddenly realise that he is the most outstanding politician that’s ever stood for office in the history of the world.” - SAM NEWMAN Newman was always best when McGuire’s there. The pair was last year reunited on screen after McGuire’s 12-year break from the show. Many thought it missed him. His return was a rebirth of their obvious long-time on-screen friendship and chemistry. “Polar opposites, we are,” Newman says. “Religiously, politically, philosophically. I’m a classic pessimist; I expect the worst and hope for the best. He expects the best and hopes it gets better.” These differences have of course helped the show; McGuire’s skills at structure juxtaposed with Newman’s jaw-dropping unpredictability. “People who are partially educated – I am and Eddie is, too – would think that just because you have a difference of opinion or point of view, you can’t get on and have sensible, robust conversations about anything,” he says. “I have tremendous respect for

listen to too many people and you never make a decision yourself.” Given that Newman as lord-mayoral candidate is a long way from the frivolity and vaudeville of The Footy Show, I asked about his views on the #metoo movement sweeping the world. “Generally speaking, it is a stain on how men behave with women. Having said that, you’ll find I think that there is a lot of unsubstantiated comment and criticisms and claims made by people for a whole lot of different reasons, those with agendas, and I’d be very sceptical and careful about believing every single thing that people said about people they’ve come in contact with. “Before that gets blown into a headline ‘Newman is sceptical about women who come forward with sexual harassment claims’, that’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying it is a very serious problem and

How does Newman feel when much younger panellists talk – albeit affectionately – about his colourful personal life? “I’m confident enough in who I am to cop any criticism, to cop anything anyone says about me. I honestly don’t mind. I don’t wear my heart on sleeve. I’m pretty resilient to criticism and adverse comment because I’ve received plenty of it. Your reputation is who people think you are; your character is who you really are, and I would never, ever try to explain to people who I am, I’ll let them work it out for themselves. “I get on with anyone. We treat people how we find them. If they’re deliberately antagonistic towards you, well that’s one thing. If people want to actually speak to you sensibly or might agree to disagree with most of the things you do, that’s all right.”

him. While I disagree sometimes with things he says, I take it, as we say, on advisement. And he gives me plenty of advice and, even being probably 25 years younger than me, he mentors me a lot.” Of course, McGuire has joined the broader community in sometimes taking exception to some of Newman’s more inflammatory comments. “He says ‘Why would you do that’?” Newman says. “I say things off the top of my head – people would be aware of that – and he is a lot smarter than me; he thinks about eight or nine sentences ahead of me and can see the blow-back or feedback and he tries to put a dampener on it before it gets out of hand while we’re actually doing it. “Over 25 years, you can say plenty of things you probably regret but would never apologise for because what’s the point of apologising?” Newman’s disillusionment with aspects of football has at times been an issue for The Footy Show team. He has expressed frustration with umpiring, doesn’t attend too many games and seems to have fallen out of love with the sport. I wondered how he saddles up again to talk about a sport that is quite clearly frustrating to him? “That’s a very good question. I like to not be a sycophant about our game. It’s a great game, after all. I played it for a long time and enjoyed every moment of it. But it is legitimate and reasonable to critique our game.”

ewman is reportedly making a run for Lord Mayor, but denies he will pursue it. “I was asked if I was the lord mayor what would I do? So I said this is what I would do. I would like to do it but I’m not going to do it … You’d have to devote (time to it) … Mind you, I’m only working two hours a week - in the winter.” He then kept the door open by adding: “In society everywhere, we get bogged down with petty agendas by people who push a cause. I have no cause to push. I don’t have a vested interest in speaking ill or glowingly about AFL football … democracy usually is a very good way of ensuring that nothing actually ever gets done because you

IT AGAIN, SAM men have behaved disgracefully and still do. “It is great that it’s come to a head and people will be very careful now about what they do and what they say. But here is the other side of it. The art of chivalry and genuinely having an affectionate opinion about someone who you actually like – whether it’s a man or a woman, incidentally – tends to be put on the back-burner because you are so fearful that anything you do will be misconstrued. That’s the sad thing about it.” While never known as a tree-hugging leftie, it is still a surprise to hear Newman speak in such extraordinarily glowing terms about US President Donald Trump. “When people stop being so biased about Donald Trump, they will suddenly realise that he is the most outstanding politician that’s ever stood for office in the history of the world,” he says. “He is extraordinary. Against all odds he has belted everyone who wished to challenge him and you might not like him as a person but I would invite anyone, in all seriousness, to (nominate) what policies he has instigated or promotes that they don’t agree with.” So, back into the breach for another year. At 72, he says he is not offended by his nickname, the Fossil. “It appears that I’m a dinosaur, a Luddite, a troglodyte, and I’m happy to say I’m all of those things,” Newman says. ●

The natural

JAMES BROADWAY

“Natural wine” has caused an uproar among winemakers and drinkers since becoming fashionable several years ago. The premise is that they’re made without chemicals in the vineyard and are minimally fiddled with in the winery. For those who feel passionate about wine, the argy-bargy is understandable. The term itself is obnoxious, suggesting that other wines are somehow “unnatural”. The style can also be challenging at first but the well-made ones can be sensational with food – particularly the big-flavoured kind. The Gertrude Street Enoteca in Fitzroy has recently overhauled its menu, with co-owner/chef Brigitte Hafner introducing a section of morsels that are grilled to order on a hibachi in the backyard. Whole king prawns marinated in lemon, chilli and oil; Wagyu short ribs; ox tongue with salsa verde and duck hearts wrapped in bacon are all given the charcoal treatment. The flavours are big, the smokiness pronounced, so they need a wine that’ll stand its ground. Enoteca likes to suggest Arfion wine’s 2017 Smokestack Lightning SC PG, a Yarra Valley Pinot Grigio that travels the minimal-input path. Vibrant and fresh with robust flavours that take in berries, rosehip and a hint of Moorish spices, it’s a great example of minimal-interventionist winemaking strengths. It’s also the perfect excuse for chucking more prawns and Wagyu on the barbie. ●

Hem 27 I recently returned from Vietnam where I learnt that pho is the country’s blandest noodle soup. Sacrilegious, I know, but it led me to Hem 27, which specialises in regional noodle soups. ‘Hem’ means alleyway, but this one is in a car park. There’s a banh mi counter upon entry and small tables with bag baskets beneath the stools. Fighting menu FOMO I order banh canh cua, a big bowl of creamy orange crab broth with chewy tapioca noodles, fish cakes, sliced pork and a soft shell crab. Holiday memories flood back as we eat chao tom (shrimp cake wrapped in fried tofu skin) and banh beo, steamed rice flour disks scattered with sweet pork mince – both doused in pungent house fish sauce. Banh flan, Vietnamese creme caramel, transports me to Saigon’s dessert carts. BYO is welcome, but try the orange juice soda with egg and condensed milk that tastes like sherbet. I didn’t manage to eat everything overseas, but Hem 27 in multicultural Melbourne lets me continue the gastronomic gallivant from home. ● Hem 27 ● Shop 27 380/320 Epsom Road, Flemington ● 9376 2961

What’s most salubrious about Melbourne’s food scene is that a humble $2.50 South Melbourne Market dim sim can reach cult status alongside the Flower Drum’s signature dish, Peking duck. In a testament to how casual dining has become experiential and experimental, the 2017 TWR Must Eat Award winner was the double cheese chilli scrambled egg from White Mojo cafe; a juicy medley of parmesan and cheddar, smoked belly bacon, chilli mayo, toasted sweet corn and ink brioche (above).

From little things ... LO-FI APPROACH PAYS OFF FOR LOCAL PRODUCTION COMPANY

B

ig doesn’t always mean better, even if you’re aiming for the silver screen. In an age when the average Hollywood movie budget could buy several small countries, a St Kilda production team are doing great things with very little. And director Sarah Jayne Portelli says her team at Nexus Production Company is bucking a trend for cinematic spectacle. “I think there’s an audience for every kind of film,” Portelli says. “There’s a lot of Hollywood films out there that are glamorous and packed with special effects, so something more character-based offers a slice of life.” Her new film Friends, Foes and Fireworks is part of a new wave of filmmaking dubbed “mumblecore”, a lo-fi approach to cinema that has culminated in

Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird – an understated drama which was nominated for five Oscars. Wholly improvised by its female cast, Friends, Foes and Fireworks was shot on a single New Year’s Eve. The film will now enjoy its world premiere this month at Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema and follows the success of short flick Daughter Daughter, also shot in St Kilda, which entered production after a triumphant crowdfunding campaign. Portelli says she was pushed to find an unusual path into filmmaking after years of getting nowhere on the Melbourne film scene. “Nobody was hiring me, so I decided I should just start making my own stuff. I’d had enough of rejection.” She directed her first film in 2013 and has made three more since. She says anyone who really wants

to make a film should stop worrying about the money and just get the cameras rolling. “You have to have that attitude. If you’re waiting for funding, you’ll be waiting a really long time. When I was trying to get funding for Daughter Daughter, I was looking at grants that said you needed a producer with so many films and festivals already. I didn’t know those sort of people. I ended up producing it myself, because we didn’t want to wait around,” she says. That her new film will soon be seen in cinemas has come as a pleasant surprise. The original goal was to screen at festivals before releasing through Video On Demand services. Daughter continues to prove a hit on VOD, selling to 27 countries, with most of its sales coming from the US. “I think the future is online. Everything is shot on digital and phones now and it’s easier to self-distribute.”

That said, Nexus has just signed with a theatrical distributor and Portelli hopes the limited season at the Classic will spearhead a broader cinematic release for Friends. In the meantime, she and her husband (and co-producer) Ivan Malekin are beginning post-production on their next feature, which was shot across four countries. The long slog seems to be paying off. “They say it takes 10 years for you to make it. We’ve been going a little longer than that and we feel that we’re really accomplishing things now. If you focus on the little achievements, it makes the journey seem more special,” she says. ● FRIENDS, FOES AND FIREWORKS \ Premieres at Classic Cinema, Elsternwick, March 21 ● friendsfoesfireworks.com

e’ve all been guilty of making an effort to impress someone, but Melbourne superstar Vance Joy went the extra mile. As thanks for being recruited to play in support of Taylor Swift, he gifted the pop princess with a specially commissioned $20,000 painting by Ken Done. Yet Vance (aka James Keogh) admits even that wasn’t enough to gain admission to her exclusive inner circle. “Maybe she’s not a Ken Done fan!” Vance says, laughing. “No, she loved the picture. I spent a bit of time with Taylor. She has a great group of friends, I got to meet some lovely people and she was always very kind to me. I can’t get too hung up about not being besties.” Getting the gig on Tay-Tay’s 2015 tour was a surreal final twist on Vance’s whirlwind rise to fame. Within a couple of years, the Murrumbeena-raised singer went from playing open-mic nights in Melbourne to playing in front of 40,000 people in stadiums all over the world.


These last few years, I’ve been enjoying it. I can pick the right time to ANTHONY SMITH

have a party and when to keep my head down. - VANCE JOY

After the 2013 single, Riptide, was picked up by commercial radio, he was flown to New York by Atlantic Records, who signed him for a lucrative five-album deal. The label’s gamble paid off, with Vance’s debut album selling around two million copies worldwide. The success doesn’t seem to have gone to Vance’s head. On the eve of releasing his second and more personal album, Nation of Two, over the phone from a pit-stop in Los Angeles, he sounds totally chilled.

But he admits that the velocity of his rise to fame was pretty dizzying at the time. A packed schedule of gigs and festivals saw his voice give way, leading to some enforced R&R. “It made me slow down and learn some techniques to take care of myself vocally,” Vance says. “That was the turnaround point. After that I felt like I was in control. These last few years I’ve been enjoying it. I can pick the right time to have a party and know when to keep my head down.”

His time as a star VFL player (for the former Coburg Tigers) helped him develop a routine to stay fighting fit and he’s come to terms with the fact that, almost without intention, he’s become an international pop star. Having had a vicarious taste of mega fame, touring with Taylor, he’s grateful that he’s still able to freely move around in his home town. “I feel I can be pretty invisible.

SAM WOOD \ WELLNESS

Worst enemy turned best pal

hat type of workout person are you? At 28, I’m always talking about becoming the best version of you and never comparing yourself with others. An important part of this process involves taking a step back, analysing your behaviour and asking yourself the question, is your own pattern sabotaging your good intentions? If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in my 16 years as a trainer in the fitness industry, it’s that the only thing getting in the way between you and achieving your weight-loss goals is you. Not your leg injury or your busy schedule, but your mindset. If any of this behaviour sounds all too familiar, you’re probably a culprit of self sabotage: YOU PUT UP MENTAL BARRIERS \ You constantly

tell yourself “I can’t do that exercise” or “I can’t cook that healthy meal because I hate eggplant”.

YOU CHEAT YOURSELF, NOT TREAT YOURSELF \

You may have worked hard and have started to see results, but let your treats get out of hand and this essentially undoes all your good work. YOU GIVE UP WAY TOO EASILY \ “It’s raining outside so my run is off the table” is your most frequently used excuse. YOU PUT IT OFF, TIME AND TIME AGAIN \ When

“I’ll start tomorrow” turns into “I’ll start Monday” all too often. Self-sabotaging behaviour can stem from laziness, but often also from a place of fear. We’re scared we won’t be able to get there, so we just don’t bother at all. It’s when we start to break down those mental barriers that we can really start to make the journey towards our fitness goals, and this is a totally

empowering process. If self sabotage is holding you back, focus on these types of behaviour: MAKE YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE \ This can be as simple as identifying what you want to achieve, writing it down, and putting it in a place as a constant reminder. To take it one step further, recruit a training buddy. When you have someone working beside you, you’ll not only feel encouraged to keep going but also more accountable to turn up to training sessions. Let’s face it: no one wants to be the one who bails and leaves a buddy high and dry.

ISTOCK

SET REALISTIC GOALS \ Start by setting smart, realistic goals that you know you’re capable of achieving. Then it feels like the mountain isn’t too high to climb and you’re way more likely to succeed. PLAN AND PREPARE \ One of my favourite sayings is, “When you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, and when it comes to breaking self-sabotaging habits, it’s absolutely key. Preparing your meals for the week

and scheduling in times to work out with a friend will make it that much harder for you to wriggle out of your commitment! MAKE CHOICES, NOT RULES \ We’re more likely to

sabotage our goals if we make our favourite things strictly off bounds. We always want what we can’t have, right? Try not to set strict rules. Instead, make a conscious decision that your actions will always reflect your goals and don’t contradict them. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF \ I’m always saying that if you’re in the mindset of hoping to get into shape, then you haven’t truly taken responsibility. When you believe you will get into shape because the buck stops with you, that is when you have true success. If one or more of these behaviour types rings true, don’t worry, you’re not on your own. Just focus on identifying which is holding you back the most and, slowly but surely, work them out of your system. ●

ou’ve just arrived home, it’s after 10pm and your last “meal” was a hastily scoffed chocolate bar at 3pm. You open the fridge to find it full of ingredients you can’t be bothered wrestling with at this hour and reach for a frozen meal or maybe some leftover pizza instead. Add a glass or two of wine, a few spoons of icecream straight from the tub and go to bed feeling mildly ill while reminding yourself yet again to try harder tomorrow. Sound familiar? What if there was a cookbook filled with recipes so basic that many could be whipped up in the time it takes to poach an egg? With her new book, The Zero F--ks Cookbook, TV and radio presenter-turned-author Yumi Stynes wants poor eating habits to be a thing of the past. As a time-starved, hardworking professional with a husband and four children to feed, she’s not interested in gels, foams or complicated techniques. She wants simple, good food fast, and the response to photos of her easy-breezy meals on Instagram told her that’s what other people wanted, too.

Quick food fixes to swear by YUMI STYNES WANTS TO SAVE YOU TIME IN THE KITCHEN, WRITES ANNABEL ROSS

“I say ‘no’ to smoking my own meat, making puff pastry, dealing with a pig’s head.”

“I have zero f--ks left to give to bulls--t cooking that wastes time, creates work and adds a whole unnecessary level of wankery to otherwise honest food,” she says in the introduction. “I say ‘no’ to smoking my own meat, making puff pastry, dealing with a pig’s head or in any way taking time out of my own busy life to do bulls--t things to food.” Stynes says preparing meals ahead of time is a good idea and there are recipes that allow you to do just that. “The chicken marinade, you don’t have to use it all at once. It will store and there’s a whole chapter for snacks and emergencies,” she says. Written in Stynes’ chatty, playful tone, the book is also a lot of fun, echoing the refreshingly blunt approach taken by Sarah Knight in her forerunning 2015 bestseller, The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Giving A F--k. Recipes include “idiot-proof salmon”, “Nailed-it cauliflower” and Stynes’ famous chicken wings, aka “the vegetarian converters”. There’s a certain kind of relief that comes with owning the fact that you are not a domestic wizard and under Stynes’ encouragement, readers can freely embrace shortcuts and simplicity. ●

COMEDY PREPARATION EQUALS LAUGHS, WRITES MATT OKINE

S

1. Is now the right time for a joke? Look around you. Weigh up all the odds. Does your audience actually want to hear a joke? Don’t get me wrong, a good joke can be told at a funeral if the timing is right, but I’ve also had people try to tell me jokes while I’m in line at the chemist trying to buy medication for tongue thrush. Not cool, bro. 2. Do I have my audience’s attention? Distractions are like joke kryptonite. Are you sitting in a sports bar, midway through the last play of the big match and everyone is literally just looking over your shoulder? Are you standing on a main road, which is going to require your friends to yell “WHAT?!” because you hit your punch just as a big truck drives past? Factor in possible distractions, and then unleash when the time is right. I would also suggest letting your audience know, very clearly, that you will be “telling them a joke”. They need to switch into audience mode. If you start telling a story about chickens crossing the road, they could very well interrupt with a long rant about an animal rights’ documentary they just watched on Netflix and before you’ve gotten to your punchline, the whole group is discussing the plight of the Hawaiian Monk Seal. Also, the telling of jokes can really strike fear into the core of people’s anxiety. The whole time you’re telling your joke, they’ll be thinking, “Oh God. What happens if it’s not funny? I’m going to have to fake laugh.” So get their permission first, and then let rip! OK, so your audience is red-hot and waiting for your zinger. Next, ask yourself:

“Just remember the number one rule of telling a joke: if they don’t laugh, it’s their fault.”

o, you want to tell a joke. That’s great! Jokes have been a wondrous form of storytelling and communication ever since poultry and roads were first invented. Here’s a few tips on how to make sure your punchlines get the kick that they truly deserve. As any “Tony Robbins-style”, eye-rollingly earnest inspirational meme will tell you, “preparation is the key to success” so, before you begin, it is absolutely crucial that you ask yourself the following questions:

The

J KE’S ON YOU 3. Do I know the joke? I’ve seen too many bumbling fools commit crimes against humanity by completely butchering what should have been a super funny moment by not remembering what the hell they were supposed to be saying. It’ll only take a minute to clarify all the details. Are you sure it takes place in a doctor’s surgery? Then why is the doctor holding a “kaleidoscope”? DO YOU MEAN “STETHOSCOPE”?! For God’s sake, please – just stop, pause, then engage. Which brings us to the most important question of all … 4. Is what I’m about to say actually a joke? A joke requires a set-up and a punchline. The set-up can be as short as a single sentence or question (“Why did the chicken cross the road?”), or it can be a long, rambling story about a chicken’s teenage-like obsession with its cloaca. Either way you choose to go, remember one golden rule to joke-telling: “the view must be worth the climb.” Word economy is absolutely vital, so don’t bother saying anything that is not crucial to your

punchline. If you tell some rambling story for 15 minutes that involves layer upon layer of puff-pastry exposition, when you finally get to the punchline, that view better be jaw dropping. But once you begin the joke, it’s like stepping off the high-dive platform at your local waterpark; provided you’ve done everything right in the preparation, you basically have to let gravity do the work. Just make sure your punchline is clear, and concise, so that your audience knows when it’s all over. Look for signs of laughter (“How To Tell If Someone Is Laughing” will be covered another week), or for your friends to be awkwardly avoiding eye contact with you all afternoon because they hated it. Either way, give yourself a big pat on the back. You did it! Congratulations. Telling jokes is super fun, but it’s not for everyone. Just remember the number one rule of telling a joke: if they don’t laugh, it’s their fault. ● MATT OKINE – THE HAT GAME \ will be on at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival from March 28 to April 22. ● comedyfestival.com.au

sing “rough and tough” granite to build the substance of a new three-bedroom house in Armadale for a downsizing couple, b.e architecture did the opposite with the interiors. For contrast, practice principal Andrew Piva says, b.e. architecture made the interiors “all soft and honed”. In a square building of simple form that is expensively and “purposefully” appointed with stacked, silver granite facades, flecked granite flooring, benchtops and an extraordinary bath carved out of one piece of the stone, the furnishings and colours are “soft and inviting”, Piva says. The natural light that pours in through the northside living room’s boundary of slide-aside glass doors makes any hard division between indoor and outdoor realms disappear, too. It also renders the interiors “relaxed and not rigid”. The furniture is cushy and curvaceously sculptural “and reinforcing what is the massiveness of the scale of the objects”.

There are also multiple “fun” gestures inherent in the lighting and cabinetry, much of which has been custom-designed inside the practice’s studio. The oversized circlet light above the dining room table – “which is also the outdoor table”, Piva points out, – “is one of the key pieces and is fitted with interlocking discs of tan and grey Perspex. “It lights the space more evenly than downlights would.” The shiny, duck-egg blue of the TV cabinet and the outdoor setting are other muffled or “lighthearted” installations in what otherwise is “quite a serious building”. b.e. builds for “permanence”, says Piva. “We aim for something greater than slick facades and the latest fashion trends.” Rather unexpected is the discovery of the upstairs courtyard that is visible only to the master bedroom and ensuite, “a protected garden with an outdoor shower and undulating moss bed”. There it is again, that yielding softness. “It’s just gorgeous,” says Piva. ●

Facades are in stacked quartz-flecked granite “which gives the material a cloudlike effect”. Granite floors feature “flecks and spotted effects so you don’t worry about staining”. HANDCRAFTED

The bath and basin “are both hand-carved. We like to explore and push materials to find their beauty.” ●

T

he best ideas often come when you least expect them. Garden designers Ross Uebergang and Yousuke Yamaguchi were enjoying a few drinks in a Nagasaki bar when they started chatting. Yousuke scribbled a few designs on a serviette and a year later, the results of their brainstorming – an Australian-Japanese unity garden – will appear at the Melbourne Flower and Garden show. An award-winning landscape designer, Uebergang has worked in Australia, Japan, Nepal and India. He believes in sustainability and the importance of native plants. Respected designer Yamaguchi, who was also caretaker of the Japanese Garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, comes from a family of nursery owners in Kyoto. The two met at a Japanese gardening show and realised how much they had in common. Their unity garden fuses the best from Australian and Japanese gardening traditions. “Japanese gardens are more often used as a transition or to look out onto whereas here in Australia we’re more into functional space,” Uebergang explains.

Their unity garden combines Grampians bush plants with Japanese design principles. The design focuses on an area for a tea ceremony where a path leads to a circular walled area with tatami mats used as a floor floating over a water feature. “The style of planting and the rugged look of the Australian bush is the predominant thing in the garden but it’s assembled using Japanese techniques,” Uebergang says. In Japanese garden design, the main work consists of careful stone and plant placement to

capture the best of nature. Japanese gardens are sustainable because they use little construction. Instead of laying paving on concrete slabs and building decks, flat stones are used on the ground. Uebergang says he wants the experimental garden to challenge people. The unity garden aims to make people think about how to spend more time outdoors and do more indoor things outside. The display will include a projector screen, bean bags and a desk. “I’m catering for things you would normally do inside,” Uebergang says. “I’m also into offices that become a forest rather than partition walls and neon lights.” Yamaguchi believes a garden is never finished and ongoing maintenance will continually reshape it. ● MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW \ March 21-25, Royal Exhibition Building and gardens ● melbflowershow.com.au

Turning off is switched on WHY KIDS’ BEDROOMS SHOULD BE TECH FREE

Y

our home is a safe space, for you and your kids. It’s a place where you can all switch off from the outside world, forget about everything and everyone and the only people allowed in are the ones you invite. At least, it used to be. But we live in a time when everyone we know, and a whole stack of people we don’t know, are invited into our homes every day. It’s called the internet and social media. This intrusion into the safe space of our homes is affecting our kids, and it’s time that parents step up to help them manage it.

What happens to devices at night time is a big issue for families. Should your child be allowed to play games or chat to friends online, in bed, until they fall asleep? Or should there be a cut-off time, when devices are put down? Well, you can’t argue with science. One study found that kids who use devices at bedtime sleep less, get poorer-quality sleep and are more tired during the day than kids who switch off earlier. And it gets more interesting: further research says it isn’t just using the devices that interrupts sleep. Even kids who have a phone or tablet device in their room – without using it at bedtime or during the

night – still had that detrimental sleep quality. So you can forget blue-light filtered glasses or switching off the wi-fi. Simply having a device in their bedroom is keeping them awake. I asked my nine-year-old about a “no technology in bedrooms” rule and she said, “sure, but adults should follow that rule, too”. She’s far from the only kid to see a doublestandard. Last year, a US survey of 249 families asked the kids (aged between 10 and 17) their thoughts on household-technology rules. Hypocrisy was one of the big issues they raised. “While parents tended not to be concerned about different rules for parents and children, many kids saw that as hypocritical,” the report says. It’s a widely considered best-practice approach to parenting: model the behaviour that you want your kids to follow. So, we too need to switch off during some parts of the day and all of the night if we want our kids to develop healthy technology habits. We are a generation of parents who grew up without having these factors at play; it’s fair to say that we don’t truly understand what it’s like to be a teenager in this technology age.

A friend’s pre-teen son told me recently that not responding to a message quickly is a social disaster. “If you don’t reply within five minutes, your friend thinks you hate them and you’re up for a big argument the next day.” Another friend’s teenage daughter said, “if you put up a post and it doesn’t get a certain number of likes within half an hour, then you have to take it down. Otherwise you’re going to get teased at school the next day.” Our kids are sitting at home (which should be their safe places), worrying about whether their actions that night are going to have huge social repercussions the next day. And we have no idea they have these pressures on them – unless, of course, we chat with them. You can’t do that if they’re locked away in their bedroom with their face in a screen until midnight. The issue of technology in bedrooms goes even further – and this is one that many parents want to ignore. It’s just too scary for words, but let’s try. I’m not suggesting that devices or social media are the devils in our children’s once-innocent lives. But I’m aiming for my home to be a safe space for my children and I think you should, too. ●

converted warehouse in Northcote is the rental property of choice for photography producer Sarah Ewing, business development professional James Walker and their Vizsla Humphreys. This space is the couple’s residence as well as the site of their photography business Atlantic Studios (which is available for public hire) and Ewing’s photography agency SEA. Double doors between the photographic studio and warehouse apartment divide the work and living

dimensions of the space, separating work from home life. “The whole building works as a cohesive space which is fantastic, but you can also divide it up in to separate private areas for different purposes. We love the flexibility and we think it provides something really different for the clients that come in to use the space,” Ewing says. The building was originally an industrial manufacturing site before it was converted into a private photography studio a number of years ago. Seeing the long-term potential of

the space, Ewing and Walker managed to secure a commercial three-year lease, affording them the time and flexibility to give it a considerable makeover. “If you can get a slightly longer lease, your relationship with the

building changes. Making a bigger investment makes you feel more committed and in a sense what you put in feels like it’s a less risky proposition,” Walker says. They engaged a team to renovate the space over four months, which saw a new bathroom and kitchen added to the studio along with numerous coats of white paint. Almost all the furniture has been chosen specifically for this rental, as the couple’s former furniture (purchased to suit an art deco apartment) felt too small and dark for a warehouse. Several pieces have been placed on wheels in order to be moved around for different shoots as required.

A big challenge has been incorporating storage space into the home. Former school lockers are used as a kitchen pantry, a standalone rack holds clothes, and a small loft space above the dining area contains books and records. As people in the photography industry, having so much wall space to hang works is one of the greatest joys of this home.

HOME MAINTENANCE

Calling Mr Fixit

T

here’s good news for couples who find themselves arguing over who will fix the leaking toilet: you’re not alone. A recent survey of more than 1000 Australian home owners reveals that 71 per cent of couples who own a home together experience tension in their relationship caused by an incomplete renovation or maintenance job.

You understand the subtext of this statistic, don’t you? Allow me to spell it out for you: tradies are breaking up marriages! They are the enemy of romance. See, if repairmen, landscape artists, renovation experts – call them what you will – only did a better job, women wouldn’t have to seethe silently while their male partner assured them he’d “get round to it” when he had “a spare minute”.

Men wouldn’t have to pretend they understood how the flushing mechanism works, and nobody would need to emphasise their domestic rage with capital letters on Yelp. The survey, undertaken by Galaxy Research and commissioned by a tradie company called Hipages, found that more than 55 per cent of men are delaying fixing the repairs, allegedly because they are “too busy”.

A further 26 per cent believe they will eventually do it. Gentlemen, this facade demeans us all! We ladies know you feel pressured to prove your worth via an outdated idea of masculinity, which states that thou must know how to fix stuff. “I tend to receive more requests from women,” says John, a Sydney-based landscaper, who is so afraid of being to blame for the death of love he will not give his surname. “In fact, I’m in the process of quoting six jobs now, five of which are with female customers.” See guys? We ladies know – well, those of us who are enlightened do – that no male partner chosen for his expert knowledge at pub trivia when you met, is suddenly going to morph into Tim “the Toolman” Taylor.

“More than 55 per cent of men are delaying fixing the repairs, allegedly because they are ‘too busy’.” - GALAXY RESEARCH

It’s actually the man who cannot accept the truth. So we women make the call, email the tradie, ‘Facebook’ the company. Only to find that our loving partner is up in arms – “I told you I’d get to it.” John our landscaper says: “I’ve had many discussions with customers

who have contacted me because their partner is not getting to an important job within a reasonable timeframe. “The back stories for so many of the jobs I get called out to are often great comic relief for the stresses of the working day. I once had a home owner call me, claiming that if they didn’t call in a professional like myself they’d be waiting at least a year for the job to get done by their partner.” Did you get that? These tradies are laughing at us! Fellas, you don’t have to say anything, just quietly email the tradie before your lady partner notices anything is wrong. Oh, who are we kidding? We lady folk notice everything. Good luck with that. ●

t was a love of sport – basketball to be exact – that first inspired Korowa Anglican Girls’ School’s Head of Junior School, Joanne Barker, to become a teacher. Her family was involved in the local competition in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs, where Barker grew up, and she soon became a devotee of the game. “[At primary school] during recess and lunch, I was always playing basketball from about the age of seven,” Barker explains. “In those days, girls didn’t have formal competitions, so I played in the boys’ teams. “I began ‘teaching’ when I started training umpires at the Nunawading Basketball Stadium. I was a referee supervisor during high school and enjoyed teaching. “This encouraged me to complete a diploma of teaching, then a bachelor of education. I enjoy learning and helping others reach their potential.” Barker joined the school midway through last year, saying its excellent reputation was one of the many reasons she was attracted to her new role. “The school has a history of academic excellence and a sense of community and warmth that I believe is important, while offering a broad and innovative curriculum and developing a love of learning,” she says. “The ethos and sense of community I felt from the first day I walked in the gates has only reinforced my drive for each student to reach their personal best.” It’s a similar drive that Barker had when she stood in front of her first class at Coolaroo Primary School 30 years ago. “My first class … was a year 1 and 2 composite class of 35 and it took me 90 minutes each way to get there,” she says. “I remember handwriting reports with duplicate paper and if you made a mistake you had to start again, and I will never forget the dreaded mimeograph duplicator for making multiple copies,” Barker says with a laugh. Since those early days, Barker has continued to work in schools, including other major Melbourne independent schools, where much has changed; including the fact that any typos in school reports can now be deleted from a computer screen. “Technology has vastly changed learning over the past 30 years,” Barker says. “It has changed both teaching methods and the learning environment a

lot … from students emailing and sharing work on their devices; to teachers providing interactive instruction using websites, apps and Skype. “The days of desks in rows have been replaced with student collaboration and teacher facilitation … With iPads, computers and handwriting books, handwriting lessons have somewhat evolved. “The way we teach has also changed, as we encourage students to be inquiring. “Students are encouraged to be active learners, asking questions, reasoning and developing ideas, and translating their thoughts into local and global contexts, leading to service and action. “While explicit instruction is important, the notion of the teacher standing at the front and imparting pages of ‘knowledge or fact-’ based curriculum has developed.” Barker says at Korowa, girls are learning not only traditional subjects, but also life skills such as communication and resilience within classrooms. “Korowa’s outstanding wellbeing program strategically and sequentially develops the girls’ social skills, implemented through a community approach, which sees students, staff and families

working together,” Barker says, “[because] developing girls who are passionate, resourceful and resilient in a very fast-changing world is essential. Girls develop social skills with their peers, family, staff and other school members in a variety of contexts, giving them the confidence to face the full range of experiences that life has to offer.” While basketball was her initial inspiration to become an educator, Barker says it is the little things that keep her inspired in her latest role. “Every day is different: it may include a welcome hug from a three-year-old, a robust discussion on innovation or STEAM (science technology, engineering, arts and mathematics), feedback, the warm smiles as the students arrive, reading with preps or watching a music class in deep concentration,” Barker says, “It really does give me inspiration each day.” ● ● Korowa Anglican Girls’ School is having an open morning on March 28.

FINANCE

When money talks IS IT RUDE TO ASK THE SIZE OF SOMEONE’S MORTGAGE?

W

hen I tell friends how much our new house cost a year ago, they think it’s something out of the year 2002. The figure was $330,000, just so we’re clear. The tiny house isn’t much, but it’s home and it’s ours. I have no problem talking about money. I think you should tell your colleagues how much you earn. I’m also more than happy to talk about our mortgage repayments, when my husband and I think we’ll be mortgage free, and what kind of deposit we had. My parents never told my siblings and I how much they earned and how much the mortgage was; an experience others of the millennial generation had, too. “I think talking about money is a good thing, we didn’t talk about money in my family growing up, so

when I had to start paying bills and dealing with day-to-day living costs I had to work it all out myself very quickly,” says 29-year-old Ken Nicholson, who paid $487,000 for a New Zealand lifestyle property in 2016. “That is the same in terms of mortgages; the more I talk about them, the more comfortable I feel about the processes.” Nicholson is completely comfortable talking about how much he paid for his house, too. “I have no reason to hide how much my house costs, especially when anyone could look online and find out themselves,” he says. Christian Howatson lives in a 50-square-metre apartment and feels the same way. The property was $358,000 in early 2017.

“I do not mind telling people how much we paid for our apartment, I grew up in rural Taranaki (New Zealand) and enjoy shocking family and friends at how much you pay for a small apartment in the city. “I am very comfortable telling people how much my mortgage repayments are, our mortgage repayments are far less than what we would pay to rent our home.” “It think it is important for the public to realise that making the effort to save for, and buy their own home will result in less weekly expenses – and mean they are paying off a fairly low risk asset.” It seems millennials like us with properties on the more affordable side of the market are happy to reveal house prices, and most of us seem to contribute 30-to-50 per cent of total household income to their mortgages. For millennials with bigger weekly contributions to the bank, it seems to be a slightly different story. When I asked Zach Robert, a 27-year-old about how much of his household earning’s go into his mortgage, he said it was 80 per cent. “It doesn’t

leave much room if random events occur, which isn’t ideal,” he said. If pressed, Robert will give an average figure based on the sales around him. “I would only tell people I know the amount I paid.” Others are more on the fence about sharing financial information. “I wouldn’t volunteer this info but happy to share if asked,” says 29-year-old homeowner David McAteer. “It helps people gauge what’s affordable if they’re on similar incomes or situations in life.” McAteer sees it as helpful for millennials to be talking about houses and mortgages when asked. “I don’t believe everyone should own property and an openness to talk about this stuff would let people see how hard it is to own a property, and the pros and cons of owning property,” he said. “Not everyone is good with money and so seeing other people in similar circumstances can be helpful to see what is possible with a little dedication and hard work.” ● STUFF.CO.NZ

TO DO NOW

PLAN YOUR YEAR

Exterior repairs: It isn’t too late to make a few improvements to the exterior of your home, but don’t tackle anything too big. Take the time to make minor deck repairs or paint your fence; just make sure you give it a good clean and light sand first.

The end of summer is a good time to plan any home improvements you want to complete throughout the year. Get in early and take the time to lock in contractors for indoor jobs during the winter months and start scheming up that new outdoor entertaining area so you’re ready to hit the ground running in spring.


Clear the gutters: Once the leaves have fallen, be sure to clean your gutters and inspect them for any damage. Co-founder of Builderscrack, Jeremy Wyn-Harris says it’s important to make sure any necessary gutter repairs are done before winter sets in. If you decide to hire someone to check your gutters for you, Wyn-Harris recommends getting them to check the roof for any loose or broken tiles while they’re up there. Painting: Stuck inside and at a loss of what to do on a moody autumn or winter weekend? “You can get into the DIY-mood by doing the fairly straightforward job of giving a room a paint touch-up,” Wyn-Harris says. “There is some technique involved but it is fairly simple to learn and a wet weekend is the perfect opportunity to start.”

Tackle small indoor projects: The colder months are ideal for tackling smaller projects you put off all summer. Patch up holes or scratches in your walls using joint compound and a putty knife from your local DIY store. While you’re tackling other small projects around the home, check your smoke alarms. The Metropolitan Fire Brigade says you should replace all smoke alarm batteries at least once a year.

AUTUMN & WINTER

SPRING

Tend to the lawn: Don’t stop at dragging out the lawnmower to do your fortnightly cut. “Spraying for weeds and the prudent use of the right fertiliser makes the difference between an average lawn and a thing of beauty,” says Stan Scott from Mitre 10. High pressure hose: Rid your outdoor areas of the moss and lichen that built up over winter with the help of a high-pressure hose. Make the job a little easier for yourself by following Scott’s advice and softening surfaces with the right spray before you scrub, hose or pressure-blast them. Weed: “It’s also a good idea to clear weeds away from the base of the house,” Wyn-Harris says. “They can build up and create a problem with dampness. It also pays to clean the guttering and check out the roof for storm damage over the winter.”

Appliance checks: Wyn-Harris says mid- to late-October is a good time to get appliances checked that have run all winter. Gas fires, ducted heating, heat pumps, and also chimneys should all be checked or cleaned annually. Do this now and save yourself some stress for the next winter. ● STUFF.CO.NZ

FEATURE HOUSE CANTERBURY\ 2 WOODSTOCK STREET 5

ramed by lush gardens and sitting on a 1530-squaremetre block opposite Norway Reserve, 2 Woodstock Street looks like it could be the setting for a fairy tale romance. But unlike the magical tales of old, the passion in this story lies in its history. Built in the mid-1880s by Otto Roemcke, a Norwegian timber merchant, the residence gained an extension, roughly doubling its size, in 1901. It was at this time that Roemcke was appointed the Norwegian Consul-General for Australian and New Zealand. Since then, the property has undergone numerous renovations but never lost the features that make it unique, such as the intricate wooden lacework in the formal dining room or the grand marble fireplace in the sitting room. In fact, over time it has actually gained some of its more breath-taking characteristics, including a 1913 handcarved fireplace with four wooden panels that depict Australian flora. In keeping with Roemcke’s vision for the home, the dwelling’s two-storey floor plan has retained its flow, devoting the ground floor to living spaces. And it does not lack living spaces. So much so, that the biggest issue might be deciding which room to use. At the front of the house, there’s a formal dining and sitting room followed by a study, conservatory, cloakroom and powder room. There’s an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room on the left-hand side and billiards room bringing up the rear. Leadlighting, which features throughout the house, reaches its crescendo in the kitchen, lit by the glass. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, the main with walk-in wardrobe and en suite. But that’s not all. There’s a sewing room, home office, sunroom, two bathrooms, spare room – that could be used as an extra bedroom – and more. The rear of the block has a small stonewall that peeps out from sprawling plants and works to separate the garden from the lawn. In the right-hand corner of the property is a work shed with sauna, equipment room, bathroom and loft. Extras include a solar-heated pool and basement cellar. The property is close to Camberwell Junction, a number of schools, and shops. ● JESS BASSANO property@domain.com.au

A delightful Edwardian residence, sitting in a cul-de-sac less than 10-minutes walk to Surrey Hills station, this property is sure to have the attention of many buyers. The double-storey weatherboard facade has been well preserved, highlighting the fretwork, steeply-pitched roof and verandah that are common in houses of this era. A palette of beige, white and navy flows from the exterior to the interior, adding contemporary flair. Inside, a hallway runs to the open-plan living and kitchen area. Here, the dining room juts out in a half dome and light drenches in through widows on every wall. French doors open to a paved barbecue area. Protected from the elements by a pergola wrapped in vines, this outdoor living space overlooks a red-brick path that separates the domain from its garden. There are four bedrooms spread across the two floors as well as a bonus room that could be used as a fifth.
