The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Art and caffeine

January 18th, 2010  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  2 Comments

When she’s not busy fitting XS-sized wonders into matchboxes and leaving them city-wide for people to find, ultra-talented Sonya Gee is juggling a million creative projects. The latest one will benefit Cafe Giulia’s caffeine devotees (and draw out their inner art-collectors).

Sonya has hand-decorated six sets of cups with everything from baby buntings to fake moustaches and mystery initials. The furry-“lipped” cups actually even have names (I only know two of them, Steve and Lenny).

They should be available soon-ish at Cafe Guilia. Keep updated via Sonya’s Twitter to find out the exact time of release. And, if you’re impatient, well, any excuse to drop by this Chippendale institution is a good one.

Cafe Giulia, 92 Abercrombie St, Chippendale NSW (02) 9698 4424,

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
