The good Prince Peter of Woodward is proprietor of a fine shoppe in Seminyak, Bali. He is the purveyor of many fine nic-naks, from his voyages the world over. He also peddles an amazing array of exclusively printed garments and gowns. So when next in Paradise you should call by his fine establishment, the prisoners of st.petersberg.

Last May the Castle visited the wonderful city of Hong Kong for several days of exploring. It so happened to coincide with the ArtHK10 art fair and we were lucky enough to attend the Vernissage.
This great event is on again at the end of this May Art HK 11. Lots of great international art and gallery's from many countries. Lots of Damien Hirst pieces, in fact here's some we nic-nak'd up just before.

On a Sunday afternoon we like nothing better than taking a short stroll from the Castle. Out of the drawbridge, across the carpark, down the street and around the corner and we're in New Orleans. Claypots seafood restaurant is a St.Kilda institution for great food, but it is the little bar that has been added that is our drawcard. With its Cairo circa 1920 interior, amazing roster of assorted musicians and eclectic cocktail list its a gem.
Sunday sees the amazing Gil Askey and friends squeezed in between the door and the bar playing jazz to melt your heart and warm your soul. Gil married and moved to Australia many years ago, but prior to that he worked in Motown era with the likes of Diana Ross, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and on and on. Seek this venue out, but only tell your closest friends, because its tiny.
