AE 444 – Vlog: Australia’s Biggest Pumpkin

Hit the road, Jack, and don’t you come back…

What’s up, guys? Welcome to this episode of Aussie English. Today is going to be a…. Today is going to be a really good episode. The glasses just went under my seat and I’ll have to find them later. We have stocked up on stuff. So, we got some drinks here. What else have we got Kel? We got some… We got nuts and fruit, and nuts and fresh, healthy snacks for the road. So, we are about to hit the road and where are we going, Kel? We’re going a pumpkin festival. Pumpkins! Alright, let’s go.

Alright, so food and drink in hands, we hit the road. It was about 40 minutes or so along the highway up north until we got to Collector, and then we were faced with this.

So, initially I was like, “Okay, what’s going on? Is the police checking people or something before they get there? But no, it was just that the road was blocked like crazy. People were parking on the sides of the roads here and then walking in, and initially, I was thinking, “Okay maybe we can do that, you know? Maybe we’ll just park wherever we can find a park and walk in.”. But I thought, “I’ll stay in the car, we’ll keep driving and see what happens.”. My God! We were in the car for about 40 minutes driving along a road that was probably a kilometre long. I shit you guys not. It took forever. It was crazy.

Alright, guys, so we are here in collector and Jesus Christ. What is this? This is crazy. So crazy, guys.

Jesus! We’re finally here you, guys. What an ordeal. I think we spent more time on the road driving about 500 metres than we did getting leave from Canberra to here. So, here we are. Let’s go see what it’s about.

So, it was pretty cute. There are loads of people, already leaving though. It was about lunchtime and there was a heap of people leaving. I thought, “Oh, it’ll be slow. There won’t be that many people”, but there was still a shit ton of people. So, here you can see the the gates. We had to pay about 10 bucks a person, I think, 10 bucks a head to get in. We could obviously pay with cash on the left side and if EFTPOS on the right side. So, that is using your, I guess, just using your bank card, right? So, you use the EFTPOS machine, which is that little machine they used to do the transaction. And this chick was having a bit of trouble with the machine as we went through. And something interesting you might not know about, in Australia we have Pay Pass, we call it, where you can just touch the card on to the machine and it senses the microchip in the card and the transaction goes through. So, if it’s an order or some kind of payment under 100 dollars, you can do that and you don’t have to enter any pin or anything like that.

So, we got in it and man it was hot, and I forgot my god damn hat! This is what happens when you forget your hat, guys. I’ve got to stand in line for ages. I’ve got to pee, gotta pee, gotta pee, gotta pee! If you guys have ever wondered what the inside of portaloo looks like, a portatoilet, here you go. This is it. Check this out. Don’t drop the phone!

If you guys have already seen the movie Kenny, you definitely need to check out that movie. It’s great. And it’s all about portaloos, so outhouses. What else? The brick shithouses. Although, these ones are plastic. Portaloos, we call them. Portaloos. But, yeah, check out the film if you haven’t. There should be a picture here showing you.

So, obviously being a pumpkin fate or fair there were pumpkins everywhere the I could see for sale. There were stores selling pumpkins. There were pumpkins on the ground holding things down, weighting down signs, they were all over the place. You could eat them. We went in to a…, I guess, it’s the town hall, some kind of building where you could see all of these pumpkin dishes that were being, I guess, assessed and voted on. You could see this crazy pumpkin cakes and carved pumpkins as well. There was one there that was huge that was number one that looked like a jack-o’-lantern from Halloween. And then, there were the smallest pumpkins awards, I guess, for those as well. So, they were pretty cute.

So, we made our way out, walked around a little bit, and I stumbled upon the largest pumpkin, and this thing was huge! I think I could have crawled up inside of this, had it been hollow. It was massive, guys. I don’t think I could have lifted it. It was absolutely huge. And I would love to know how long that took to grow. Far out! And what steroids were they giving it? Huge! Huge!

So, we kept going, kept having a look, and then we stumbled upon what looked like sheep in a paddock. I was like, “Something interesting’s going on here.”. And this guy was talking about herding sheep using cattle dogs, using these Kelpies, these two black and white Kelpies in the background.

So, we were walking around checking out these different stalls, all kinds of leather products, there were clothes, and then we found a whole heap of picture frames, hippie clothing, candles, different aroma things, all sorts of soaps, heaps and heaps of stuff. This is the kind of stuff you’ll see at these markets, these farmer’s markets.

And then, we came across the food stalls and this is where things started to get pretty good, guys. So, I was getting pretty hungry by this point and decided that it was time to get something to eat and we were also pretty thirsty. And so, what’s really common at these fetes and at pretty much any public event, you’re going to see things that are like hot food stands. So, you’re going to see hot dogs, which is like a sausage in a bun, you know? It’s a pretty American thing, but it’s popular here too. You’ll see all kinds of meat. This one also had hot chips. That’s a really common thing to find that these stalls where you get chips with sauce and salt on them in little buckets, kind of like coffee mugs, or coffee cups, the cardboard coffee cups but bigger. You get those. And then there were battered savs!

Alright, guys. So, I thought I had to do some food for you in this vlog. This is a battered sav. So, this is a sausage in batter that’s been deep fried, and then it’s been dipped in it’s sauce, tomato sauce of course. And, wow. It’s pretty good as you would imagine any dried… deep* fried food is. So, I’m going to hand this over to Kel and give her a bit of a go.

Yeah cheers. Cheers, Kel! Kel! What did you…? What did you…? There’s nothing left! What did you do? You smashed it! This is so unfair, guys. We might have to get another one.

So, I thought there was this scarecrow in the middle here, and then I looked sideways, and I was like, “This crowd’s pretty thick.”, and all of a sudden, I realized they’re all on sticks, and these people standing up are all scarecrows as well. These are… They’re not people. They’re all scarecrows. I had no idea. I thought it was just a really thick crowd.

So, this is how multicultural Australia gets, guys. We out in the middle of, you know, woop woop in a town called Collector and we have here German hot dogs, Turkish Gozleme, we’ve got Tian Farm chicken food. What else have we got? Some authentic organically grown… Dunno whats, and then the French crepes as well. So, there’s stuff from all over the world in this tiny little fete/fair thing. Crazy! where’s the Brazilian food, Kel? I’m still looking for it.

I was thinking this was some African country or something, guys, like Uganda. And then I got it. “Uwana”, “(Do) you want a coffee?”. Ok, I get it. I get it.

We also stumbled upon some guy doing a kid’s show. He was playing this pipe like the didgeridoo and singing about native Australian animals, which was pretty cute.

Skip like a kangaroo.
Skipping around Kakadu.
Little joey in the pouch.
Two ears sticking out.

And then after that, we stumbled upon some old carriages that were drawn by horses.

And it looks like we got some really old good carriages out the back here, guys. So, people getting rides on those. Let’s have a look and see if we can see one go past.

And I don’t know whether or not this was paid, but you could jump on these things and they would take you for a ride around this paddock or this oval, it could have been a cricket field, but it looks really cool. So, I sat there and watched them come round.

A common scene at all fairs, guys. The dunny queue.

What do you think, guys? Is this pretty “punny”. Instead of “bandicoot”, “bandicute”.

We kept walking around after that looking at different stalls and Kel found a really cute store where you could buy baby’s clothing called “Bandicute”. Pretty funny pun. So, we grabbed something there from my niece. That was pretty cool, except for the fact that Kell’s card didn’t work so I ended up having to pay for that one. Thanks, Kel.

But, yeah, there were all kinds of bookstalls. There were stores selling Australian stuffed animals. There were stores selling signs made out of Australian animals. Then there were bracelets and jewellery, plants, you could get succulents and cacti, and even, I think, some carnivorous plants, right? So, things like the picture plants and the Venus fly traps, which I found pretty interesting. Wasn’t expecting to see that.

And then of course the ice cream truck or the ice cream van. Now, this is a very common sight in Australia.

Another really famous thing to say goes here when you come to these fairs is the ice cream truck, usually with a big, big line in front of it. So, there you go. Although, I’m not going have any ice. Not today.

It’s not just me that says it, guys. When things go wrong!

It wouldn’t be a fete, guys, without a sausage sizzle and the sauce hiding in. Some bread, sausage, and there you go.

We also ended up hearing some bagpipes being played in the background, which was pretty random, and there was a group of maybe 15 or so people standing in a circle in one of these pavilions just playing these bagpipes incredibly loudly. So, went and had a look at that.

And then, we were pretty much done for the day. We’d been there for a few hours. We were pretty wrecked, had eaten a little bit, walked around.

Alright, guys, I think we’re a faired out, smashed it out, managed to only eat a little bit of dirty food, and didn’t break the bank, although Kel did trick me. She got me. Oh my god! So, we ended up buying something from my niece.

So, I think we’re going home now. Pretty wrecked, pretty wrecked. Lots of sun exposure. I got my vitamin D for the day. I tell you what!

And another thing, I guess, that was kind of interesting was that there were two of these graveyards on either side of the main street as we walked out of this fair, and this you’ll see a lot in Australian towns, especially small towns that are quite old. You’ll see that churches quite often have graveyards next to them.

And of course as soon as we got out we needed coffee. So, we went to Some Café, and the café at the intersection there.

As always, guys, we’ve got to do a pit stop and get some coffee.

And sat around, got some coffee, and also tried some delicious treats here. So, I think that we grab some carrot cake here. That was delicious. And yeah, I just can’t get enough of the carrot cake.

And then it was time to head home. So, we got in the car. We got out pretty quickly, fortunately. It wasn’t to block, but then we hit traffic, and we were like, “Okay, what the hell is going on? Why is the highway where we should usually be driving at about 110 Ks an hour, why are we moving out like five kays an hour?”. So, we sat there for ages and then the GPS told us that had been an accident up ahead, interestingly enough. And so, we were waiting for ages, like four or five kilometres of just heaps of people heading back to Canberra.

Man, I can’t believe this shit! We get back on the highway were meant to be doing 110, and how fast are we going Kel? That’s 10 kilometres. 100 kilometers to slow. So, there’s been some accident, apparently, up here, but it feels like we got to Collector earlier on and we were going the same speed for about 20 minutes trying to get to the town to park and now we’re just trying to get home. We’re doing the same shit again. God damn it! Hopefully everyone’s okay in the accident, but far out!

And I was expecting to see some epic carnage when we got there, but it had all been taken away. And so, we just passed a few cop cars and the firies, and that was about it. Then we headed home.

Good thing on the way home though, I thought “Another excuse to do some photography”. We passed these horses in a field near a horse club of some kind or some place where some person obviously takes care of people’s horses on their land. So, these fields were full of about 20 horses, and we got out of the car, and they all came over to us. It was beautiful, and Kel got to do some photography whilst the sun was setting with these horses in the background.

AE 442 – Vlog: Brazilian Food Isn’t What I Expected | Australian vs Brazilian Food & Culture

Alright, guys. So, we’re going to some place Deli Cravings that Kel just found, because apparently it sells Brazilian food authentic Brazilian food that’s been imported from Brazil, huh? And Kel’s pretty excited. She started screaming on the computer in the lounge room, and is like “You have to come with me! You’ve got to take me. Even though, it’s ANZAC Day, it’s open. We need to go. We need to go get food I need you to try my… the food of my people. You need to try it. Try the food! Try the f*cking food, Pete! She didn’t say that. She was a little calmer, just slightly. Let’s see.

Alright, so we’re here in this little… I don’t know what you call this place, like, mall. There’s shops open everywhere, even though it’s Anzac Day today. So, they should be close, but obviously, they don’t care. They don’t give a sh*t. Here we go. Here’s the place.

Straight ahead and on your left.

Where?

Can you see it?

No. So exciting! That’s it.

Oh, I don’t know what this is, but we’re going to try it. I wish I could see Kel’s face now, guys, she’s like a kid in a candy store. So, there’s lots of foreign food here. It looks amazing.

Paçoquinha. There’s another one. I have no idea what it is, but apparently we’re going to try it. *Portuguese*. I know pau de queijo. Pão*. “Pão”, not “pau”. Pão de queijo. Oh, too funny.

I can’t take everything. I have to choose. I know, you’re going to have to be selective. I have no idea what all this is , but I’m looking forward to eating. Tapioca. There’s another one. What’s that one? Batata paiha. Oh yeah, you guys love that. They’re like little chips, aren’t they? I know farofa, but I’m always like “What is it? Rice or is it because cous cous?”. It’s something else though, right? Farofa.

Kel just lost her sh*t. She was showing me this earlier today. There you go. Brazilians in Canberra, this is where you need to come! So, Kel has stocked up, guys. She has stocked up. There you go.

How’s it going? Would you like a bag? Yes please. How’s your day going? Busy? Actually, busier than we expected. Yeah, we didn’t expect you to be open. She lost her sh*t. She found all this Brazilian traditional food and was like, “We need to go to the store”. You guys should advertise this. There’re so many Brazilians. Yeah, she’s been here for two years and hasn’t had any of this. And she’s just like, “Oh my god!”. Did you want a receipt? No, you’re all good. Thanks a lot. Have a good day. Thanks. See you. Where’re we going?

Alright, guys, we’ve stocked up. We have stocked up. We have like 40 bucks worth of Brazilian food, which doesn’t amount to much once it’s been imported here to Australia, but it’s going to be an interesting experience to see what this is like. I haven’t had any traditional Brazilian food that’s actually come in packages or anything, right? We’ve made a few things like brigadeiros, and that was about it.

Yeah, and requejão.

Requejão também. We also had requejão. So, this is going to be good fun, guys. This is going to be good. I have no idea what to expect. In fact, I think I do know what to expect, a lot… a lot of sugar. I reckon it’s going to be as sugary as sh*t.

So, I am here today testing Brazilian food.

What’s the first one that’s coming my way? You… I’ve got to say, do I?

Yep.

Tradição Brasileira, Paçoquinha.

Perfect.

Paçoquinha. So, what is this exactly? Paçoquinha? Or do you want to eat first and then tell me?

Um, just yeah… go for it. Smell it.

It looks like these little cylinders. Little cylinders. They kind of remind me of those apricot treats that you can get in Australia. Have you ever seen those with like Kirchen on the outside?

No.

It’s really sweet, but I can already smell…

The sugar?

I can smell the amount of peanut butter. So, this is paçoquinha.

It’s very sweet.

Really? Rich.

Really, really sweet. You could never go through a whole one of those.

No. Oh really? I don’t find it really sweet.

No, it’s really sweet. It’s not what I was expecting. I was expecting it to be a more peanut buttery and really dense, ’cause those apricot things that I have in Australia… those apricot things are really really dense and chewy. So, I was expecting it to be like that but this feels like a kind of powdery and you bite into it. But it was very nice. Very sweet. Wow. So, this is the inside of it. Yeah, oh my god! I could have one of those, I think. Oh! They are really strong. Can I get a glass of water?

Yes.

So that I can wash my mouth out. It’s very powdery. Sticks all over my mouth. Alright, I’ve cleansed my mouth and I’m ready for the next one. So, what’s next?

Bis.

Bis. These look like waffle biscuits.

Yeah.

We used to have these with my… My grandmother loved these things, but they were like pink or yellow when they would come out. She would bring them out when I would get to our place. So, I think you can probably get these in Australia. Though, I haven’t seen… I haven’t seen them like this for. So, what are these? Bis. Nova formula. Woah, look out, “new formula”, guys. “Lacta”, that tells me there’s milk in it. Alright. Oh, the packaging looks a lot nicer than the Australian ones. The Australian ones, you’d pull it out of here and they would just be sitting there ready to come out. Wow, so that’s… look at that.

“Bis” is like “Again”. So, “você pedi um bis” is like you want something to happen again. So, if you’re singing and I’m like, “Oh, um bis”, it’s like, “Oh, sing again!”.

Ah, okay.

You get it. Yeah.

So, this is tiny. I was expecting it to be much bigger based on what I was looking at here. It’s a bit of false advertising there. Alright, so let’s give this a go. Kel’s getting into it. You haven’t had one of these in a while?

A long time.

Holy molly. Alright, so here we go. They look pretty good. They look like… Oh, there’s some Chomp bars that you can get in Australia and it looks like this. They’re called Chomps and they’ve got caramel in them. They’re really good. Alright. Yeah, these are good. I could eat a lot of these.

That’s Bis. Mmm so good!

I think I need a second one just to be sure that’s what I’m tasting. What are these like the Brazilian version of Tim Tams?

Yeah, but Tim Tams are extremely sweet for me.

Wow, yeah, they’re good. I really like those. They are just those waffle biscuits. You can definitely find those all around Australia. But they seem to come differently. They’ll be thin, but I think they’ve obviously used the same stamp, ’cause they have the same patterning.

What’s next. Guaraná.

Guaraná.

So, the funny thing was Kel showed me, today, this morning, she’s like, “Have you ever tried Guanará?”, which is like the Brazilian version of coke, right? Like, it’s sugary. You’ve got coke, but it’s your special Brazilian…

It’s our main… yeah.

“O original do Brazil”. So, “the original from Brazil”. This is Guaraná Antartica. Alright, so it contains caffeine. Cuidado. Watch out!

Yeah.

And what is Guaraná exactly? It’s is a berr?

It’s a fruit. Yeah, the thing.

Yeah. So, I’ve never tasted the fruit. I’ve never had one of these, but I always hear Brazilians talking about it. So, like, this one was nice and cold in the fridge when we got there. Opens like normal can.

Smells like a normal drink.

Yeah. Alright, I’m guessing it’s going to be green or yellow. Oh, nailed it! So, do I just do a little bit? Alright, let’s just leave that there. Oh, it smells very Aramaic. Aromatic*. Lots and lots of fruits.

Just have a lot!

Have a lot? Ok. Is this going to blow my mind? That’s pretty good. It’s hard to describe though, ’cause it’s kind of like a fizzy drink, soft drink, but it’s fruity. It’s nowhere near as sweet as I was expecting.

Oh good.

I was expecting that to look like Mountain Dew or something, you know, just based on this and being like, “Oh my God”.

It tastes exactly like diabetes.

How much sugar does that actually have in it? Oh, it was only 10 grams, 10 percent. I don’t know what Coke is, but I think cokes are way more than 10 percent. So, that’s actually quite good. Keep smashing that.

So, these’re the other two things that you can wanting to show me. Nescau.

Nescau, which is our Milo, but better.

Which just looks like chocolate drink. Yeah, your milo, but better huh?

Much better.

Robbed! I’ve been robbed!

This looks pretty good. The other thing that I noticed, or Kel noticed, was farofa, which is what exactly? Cassava flour did you say? Cassava flour with these ingredients mixed in. And so, you have this as a side. And initially, I thought it looked like… Oh, is that like rice or something? Like, it looks like cous cous, but apparently it’s not. You wouldn’t have that much of it, right? It’s just kind of a little additive.

Yeah, that’s it. You described it perfectly.

Alright. Well, I guess, we will have that tonight and hopefully I can video that and include that, guys. Anyway, see you at dinnertime, guys.

Alright, guys, we’re back. It’s dinnertime. Kel’s cooked this nice little meal. We’ve got some black rice here, and then, what would you call this, Kel? This chicken.

This is herbed chicken.

Herbed chicken, yes. And also… excuse me. We have farofa. So, how do I eat this? What do I do with it? Do I just…?

You can try like that, but I think it might be a bit…

Brutal.

Yeah, just…

Do I just put it on the top?

No, just… Yeah, a little bit on the side. Yeah, and then you can mix it with rice if you want or…

Maybe, I should… I’ll get some of this rice and I’ll try the farofa. Alright. Actually, I might use a spoon. So, I’ve no idea what to expect. Is it good?

Yeah.

It’s really dry, and nice and salty. It’s not bad, it’s just…

The texture?

It’s kind of like it feels like they’ve gotten plain salty chips and put them in a blender, and that’s what you’ve ended up with all these… This is what a packet of chips is like when it’s been ground up.

Yeah, I was expecting it to be like flour, like chicken salt or something, very fine, but it’s chewy.

Yeah, it can be a bit…

Interesting. So, farofa. Not bad!

AE 439 – Vlog: Burgers and Beer in Canberra | Australian Food and Culture

Oh! Burger’s. Glassworks. Burgers first. Okay, so here we are Brod Burger’s, guys. Massive selection of burgers on the wall and I think I’ve acquired my target, the Piri Piri. Oh, I love chicken burgers.

I might have to grab a beer as well to wash it down and those Hog beers look pretty good so let’s try those. Oh, man, you had to check out this little tip jar. It was so cute. Although, I don’t think it was edible.

So, I was an idiot and forgot to record myself getting ready to eat this burger. So, instead, I took a photo of it, guys. $16.50 for the Piri Piri Burger, the chicken burger, $3 bucks for the chips as well. So, almost $20 for that. And the steak burger that Kel got was $18 bucks. So, looks incredibly expensive, but this is the kind of price you’re going to pay in Australia for this kind of food. Junk food in Australia, especially takeaway junk food, is not cheap. And beer wise, I didn’t take note of how much the beers cost, but they’re usually, for a study like this, a glass bottle, they’ll usually be about $7 or $8 dollars each, usually. Especially, if they’re craft beers. And, I just grabbed two beers. These are Feral Brewing Company beers. So, they’re really good ones. Local here in Australia. The Smoked Porter. So, quite a dark one there. Got that to try. And the Hop Hog as well. So, I think that’s an IPA and I wanted to give that one to go too.

I’m not usually one for sweets, but straight after the burger we saw these interesting looking desserts of some kind, I’d never seen them, like cronuts* or something like that. So, Kel twisted my arm and we decided to grab one of these things and give it a whirl.

Every time we go somewhere the girlfriend wants to eat something sweet. Yeah, I’m totally full of shit. It was totally my idea.

That’s pretty intense. Man, bring on the diabetes. Holy moly! Oh, geez! It’s pretty brutal.

So, I’m still not 100 percent sure what this thing was, although, it was obviously some kind of pastry that had been made like a doughnut with chocolate sauce on top, and then I think it had custard or some kind of chocolate creme on the inside. So, yeah, sugar, sugar, sugar, and more sugar.

Oh my gosh! That was incredibly rich, but very good. Oh my gosh. Rich!

Alright, guys, we just had burgers and we decided to come down to the Canberra Glassworks, which was right next to the burger place, in fact they joined, and have a bit of a sticky beak, have a poke around and see what it’s like. So, let’s go inside and have a look inside the actual hot room and engine room, see what it’s all about.

AE 438 – Vlog: He Destroyed My Phone – Part 2

G’day, guys! Welcome to this episode of Aussie English. I am your host Pete and I am here to help you level up your Australian English or just English in general.

So, this is part two of a two-part series, guys. If you haven’t seen the first part, click the card above should be there, or there, or there.

So, in today’s episode, I am heading to get coffee. I’m taking my mate Leo for a bit of a walk. Seeing what we find along the way and teaching you guys English as well as showing you Australia whilst I do so.

So, sit back relax grab a cuppa and let’s enjoy this episode of watching me get a cuppa… cup of coffee. Let’s go.

Your body and your mind. One, two, three. Bounce.

Calm your farm, mate. This guy wants coffee nearly as badly as I do. Canberra bus stop, guys, cutest bus stops in Australia, and that’s a cockatoo.

We’re getting closer, guys. Coffee! Oh, man, this is so awesome, guys. This is so awesome. I have never seen this in Australia before.

So, I’ve seen signs with kangaroos, with koalas, with wombats, with deer, with camels, all sorts of signs, but I have never seen one with ducks on it.

That is amazing. And it’s because there is a big, big, big pond behind us over here where I imagine there are a lot of ducks with ducklings crossing the road here. That’s crazy.

Mohawk pigeon. Check out his little mohawk! He’s so epic. Well, on second thoughts the jumper was definitely overkill.

It is very warm now that we’ve been walking around for about half an hour filming and coming to this beautiful little…I guess, dam, lake? It’s tiny. It can’t be a lake. But look at that, guys. It’s lovely.

Well, apparently, we can’t swim, but I guess you’re right. Look at that! So, unfair.

That was a Sulphur-crested cockatoo, guys, and yes, it does sound like it’s dying when its making its call. Let’s have another listen, but this time I’ll slow it down.

It sounds like what I would imagine T-Rex to sound like. Dr. Grant? Oh, man! Jurassic Park was such a bad-arse film.

Spiders! Let’s see if I can line this up for you, guys. These are spiders that… they grab at like a leaf out of a tree or off the ground and then they string it up in their web, they wrap it up, sew it together, and then they sit in it as if they’re not there whilst in their web. So, it’s like camouflage. Pretty cool. And then as soon as any unsuspecting insect falls into the web, bam!, they pounce.

Finally, coffee time! You pumped? You excited? How’s it going, dude? Can I please just grab a large… Cap? …Cappuccino. Yeah, that’s it. Sugar? Nah, all good. Thanks though. $4. No worries, mate. Just on card thanks. Cheers. So, missed the busy part, huh? Yes, although, we were really busy yesterday, not so busy today. Yeah. Does this guy need to wait outside? Nah, he’s alright. Hello puppy. Have you just had a haircut? He’s a bit of a pest. Alright, you’ve got to not poo inside or we get chucked out.

Leo! Leo! Are you excited for coffee, mate? That’s us, Leo. Where is it? Where is it? That’s us! Leo! Leo! That’s us right here, mate!

I found something pretty cool that I want to show you guys. Can you see it? It’s a black swan. So, in Australia we don’t have white swans as people in America or… I think, Canada, or is it just Europe? But normally white swans are European thing.

And here… Oh! Damn dog! Here we have black swans, beautiful black swans, and this guy definitely wants to go and say hello.

So, I reckon these guys are usually fed here, ’cause they do not seem to be that afraid of me. Let’s check out this behemoth. This huge swan. Look at him. Hello. See how close we can get without him raging up or running away. What a beautiful, beautiful little guy. Not phased. Doesn’t care. Let’s see if we can sneak a little bit closer. Wow! Oh, and you’ve got a friend. Amazing. Hello!

Oh my God. This is incredible, guys. I’m right at the water’s edge and I would imagine that these guys are being fed here, although, this guy’s feeding himself. But this one, look at this! I could literally reach out and touch him. Absolutely beautiful.

And these ducks as well. He’s thinking, “There’s no food here!”. Back up. Back up. Any food?

Could you make some more noise, mate? Could you make some more noise? What are you doing? What’s your issue? Jesus! Separation anxiety or something, huh? I was like five metres away. Calm your farm, mate. Calm your farm.

So, this has been my birthday, chilling out with these guys in the background, and this pest.

Tough guy. Very tough. Look at you! You should just hide behind this rock mate. They are not afraid of you. So, tough.

Right, so, obviously the jumper was a bad idea, and I have to tie it around my neck. So, that I can free my hands up and walk the dog, not drop the screen or the camera for another time. But I thought of an expression to teach you guys and it makes sense right now.

So, we were walking pretty close to the road here and I don’t trust this little guy. He’s a bit… He just runs everywhere without thinking.

So, I’ve kept him on a short leash, right? So, as opposed to ‘a long leash’, the leash is very short. This’s an expression that you can use in English when a… I guess, someone in charge of someone else keeps a close eye on them or keeps them under control, they keep the person on a short leash. Okay?

So, it could be literal if you have a leash on… Well, probably not a person. That’d be weird. It could be literal using it on the dog, but it could also be figurative where you’re controlling someone, keeping an eye on them, you’re keeping them under control, you’re keeping them on a short leash.

I have to show you this trick. This is how I get him in, okay? So, I put this on unlock, and then I… Got you now, mate! And I’ll let you go.

So, I’ve a feeling that all the streets around here are named after things or lines in Banjo Patterson’s, Waltzing Matilda. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong.

So, if you haven’t got poem out or that song out, definitely check it out. The best part about walking the dog is not the actual walk. It’s the result of the walk.

Alright, guys. Thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed this episode. I hope you learned a heap of new vocab. And yeah, it’s a shame about the camera screen, but sometimes shit happens and you’ve got to crack a few eggs if you want to make an omelet.

AE 433 – Vlog: Canberra Renting Nightmare!

Alright, guys. Back again, back again, and I decided to go for a walk today. So, I’ve just come down out of the suburbs that I’m living in here and there is a nice park, bit of park land, out to the side here that you can hopefully see behind me with a bunch of different animals in there. We’ve seen foxes in there. We saw some kangaroos in there. Quel’s been coming out walking in the mornings and we sometimes go out in the evenings as well together, and there are… yeah, there tend to be these kangaroos just hanging around in different spots in there just eating grass, I guess, and when you walk along, it’s kind of funny, because you won’t see them. They kind of blend into the background really well and have that grey… the grey sort of coat colour, but as soon as you walk passing it close to them, they pop their heads up and then they sit up, and they have that look on their face kind of like cows where they’ll be chewing. You know that herbivore kind of look where their jaws are kind of moving up and down, but also from side to side as they’re chewing on grass. So, it’s kind of cute. You’ll see them there put their head up and be like, “What are you doing? What are you walk and pass for? This’s my joint. This is my place.”.

So, I thought I would come down here today and do a little walking with Pete episode again, and chat to you guys about the latest news in Canberra, as well as my impressions of Canberra, I guess, so, what I think of the place as a whole, what it’s been like living here for the last few weeks, and my experiences.

So, I guess again, we moved up here three weeks ago and we had quite a bit of fortune, because we were meant to be coming up and staying at a… at an Air BnB, and the Air BnB was going to be something like a nine hundred dollars for a fortnight. So, 900 bucks a fortnight for a room. Living with some lady and her dog. But the… probably two nights before we were going to come up here and stay there, I told one of my friends that we were planning to come up to Canberra, and he was like, well he lived here, and he said, “Oh, we’re going away on the day that you arrive we need someone to take care of our dogs.”. And so, that’s why as I’m sure some of you have noticed, I’ve been living in a house with a couple of dogs recently and taking care of them.

So, that worked out really well. Rent Free. We didn’t have to pay for anything. We just had to be there to take care of his dogs, keep his dogs company, feed them every single day, walk them every single day, and as a result we saved you know a thousand dollars each or something instead of having to pay for three or four weeks of Air BnB rent. So, that was amazing. Massive thanks to my friend if he ends up watching this. And yeah, we’ve been able to enjoy this beautiful park each day behind what is effectively suburbia up here behind me.

So, you’ve got all these houses and these suburbs that are really new. I’m not sure if you’ll be able to see over here, but you might notice that all these houses look incredibly new. They’re probably only one or two years old and there are a lot being built along here as well. You’ll see scaffolding up here behind me and there’s a few over in the distance here being made. But on the other side here, you just have paddocks and farms and other land being cleared and streets being put in, lights in the streets being put in. It looks like you can see where houses are going to be built. So, they’ve started shaping off the land and everything for where these houses will be, the lots that they’ll be on.

And so, Canberra’s obviously sort of growing quite a lot at the moment. It’s a small city. It’s I think less than 400,000 people. So, it’s less than 10 times smaller than Melbourne, probably 12 or 13 times smaller than Sydney.

But I tell you what guys, finding somewhere to rent here has been an absolute nightmare. There is so much competition. I don’t know if it’s just this time of year. I know that obviously the start of the year is going to be busy with regards to people arriving in locations and trying to find somewhere to live no matter where you live. It’s always going to be like that, but everybody seems to be absolutely insane here in Canberra, because obviously there just isn’t enough housing for people to have to live in. So, every single house that we went to inspect had between 10, 20, 30, 40 people inspecting those houses.

So, every single time we went in to submit an application to try and get one of these houses we’re competing with potentially 10, 20, 30 other applications as well. So, it’s been a nightmare. We’ve put in maybe five or six and all of them failed. They picked someone else.

I guess also, the rent is just ridiculous. So, to give you a bit of perspective, I guess, living in Melbourne I was paying… What I was paying? Two hundred and… maybe two hundred five dollars a week for the place that I was staying at, and to get somewhere here it’s about the same price. So, rent for one of the houses was at least… and these are the cheap houses. We’re not going for something that has 10 rooms, a pool, and is on five acres of land. We’re going for something that’s got two bedrooms, three bedrooms, and is pretty modest, you know? We just wanted somewhere that I could have a desk, we’ve got two bedroom, spare room for someone to stay in, but to give you an idea of the rent prices. Weekly room prices here. The cheapest I’ve seen for a house I think was about 390 dollars a week. So, what does that end up being? It’s about 1,500 dollars a month. So, you’d have to pay bond as well, but those houses, the ones that were under 400 dollars, wow they were crack dens. They were very run down, old, very small, one bedroom sort of flats. The most standard stuff that we see, the… on average houses tend to be about 450 to 500 dollars a week. And so, that’s, you know, about 2,000 dollars a month for rent. So, a thousand dollars each for Quel and I.

(I’ll) just give you a view here of the little bridge that we cross before we go into the park.

And so, yeah, the rent’s been pretty crazy. I was not expecting that. And something that blew my mind, we went to Batemans Bay, right? So, Batemans Bay is this picturesque, beautiful bay down the coast at the beach, and I was expecting… I just said to Quel, I was like, “Oh we should look up the rent prices and see how much it is here. Maybe it’s… you know, maybe Canberra’s not that bad for this sort of area in New South Wales and in the A.C.T.”, and Bateman Bay rent was like two hundred dollars a week for a house. So, like less than… less than half the amount that we are spending on somewhere here, you could get a place in Batemans Bay, a picturesque, beautiful location near the beach, you know, that you would imagine there’s a lot of competition for it, but obviously not a great deal, and it was half… less than half the price for some of these houses. I was like, “What?! What?!”.

So, anyway that’s been that’s been our experience so far applying for houses, but the good news, guys, the good news, the funny news. Oh my God. So, yesterday, we were like… we were chatting and I said, “Maybe we should just look for some share houses. This is going to be easier.” And a share house is somewhere where you are sharing the house with someone, right, or multiple other people, and you don’t have to pay a full bond. You know, you might have to pay your proportion of the bond. You don’t have to pay to rent the entire house, because obviously there are other people and you’re just renting a room and then sharing the rest of the accommodation like the living room and the kitchen.

So, you end up saving a bit of money. So, I said, “Quel we should do that. We should just see what’s out there. Maybe we’ll find some really nice lovely people to live with and it won’t be too bad, and we’ll end up saving quite a bit of money.”, because obviously we’re wanting to save as much as possible whilst here and whilst working full time.

So, Quel applied… well sent an e-mail to a few places and asked if we could come and check them out, and they got back to us pretty much straight away. Bugs everywhere! Got back to straight away. Two places. One place said, “Come and check it out on Sunday”, which is the day after the people whose dogs were taken care of get back. They get back on Saturday, which is tomorrow. And so, and the other one said to come over that evening. So, we were like, “Boom! Too easy!”.

Quel didn’t even really know where this place was, right? So, she’d seen photos and it looked really spacious, looked amazing, and guys, so we drive we drive to this place and all the houses… we’re like driving up, driving up, all the houses are millionaire houses, like, huge, and if they’re not these massive houses with these expensive cars in the front of them, they are embassies for places like the Dominican Republic or, I think, one of them was Nepal. And so, we were like, “Do we have the wrong location? Are you sure in the right place, Quel? I feel like we’re in the wrong place.”

Anyway, so here we ring up the person and tell them we’re here. No, we’re in the right place. And it turns out that this share house is the old embassy of Pakistan. So, I was just like, “What?!”. How the hell do we end up here? We walk in and check it out and it’s fantastic. It’s huge. I was really, really shocked.

So, we went in and looked at the room, and the room was like this big… big bedroom, queen-size bed, walk through wardrobes, with our own bathroom, which had two different showers. It has a bidet. And for those of you who don’t know what a bidet is, it’s kind of like a toilet that you squat over after you’ve gone to the toilet, and you press the button and water squirts up your backside. So, you sit down and water comes up here to prevent you from having to wipe, I guess.

That’s not something common that you would see in Australia. Maybe in like a five star hotel room or something, but… Anyway, so we went in, and a crazy thing… I guess, the reason we sort of saw this place as being a good place to stay at was that there’s a woman who takes care of everyone. So, there’s like up to 10 people who can live in this huge old embassy, ’cause it’s got heaps of rooms. She feeds everyone every night. She cooks their dinner and the dinner is a pretty good. Like, enchiladas, I think there was some Malaysian she was cooking that evening.

She… initially, we were kind of like, eh… she seems like a bit of a very strong, I don’t know how to put this, but like pushy kind of a person that you kind of think, “Eh, I might not get along with you. You might be a bit too much.”. But then after chatting to her for a bit she was actually really lovely, really funny, and was taking people out on trips on the weekend and stuff. She’s probably in her mid 60s and no real Australian Aussie battler. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get her on the air on the podcast in the future.

But anyway, so we were thinking, we were chatting after this, and it was it was funny, because we had the full process of walking and being like, “Maybe this isn’t for us”. We started chatting to her. We saw the rooms. We saw the shared spaces that we get to hang out in. And then, we were sort of slowly like, “Maybe this is for us. You know this is pretty easy. We don’t it to pay a massive bond.”. Rent’s 450 dollars a week with meals included, all bills included. So, that’s a massive plus, because we don’t have to buy anything, right?

So, we… another part of moving into a house for us that was going to be difficult, aside from just buying, sorry, just paying for the bond and paying for the rent, was the fact that we would have to buy a modem for the Internet. We would have to get the modem installed. We would have to pay monthly bills for the Internet. We would have to we would have to get electricity sorted out, water sorted out, gas sorted out. Again, all of those bills, I have to organise them, have them in my name, pay through the bank account for those things on a monthly basis. I would have to then buy a fridge, buy a washing machine, buy a dryer, buy couches, buy furniture, buy a desk.

And so, all these things were sort of becoming more and more apparent to Quel and I that this is going to be a bit of a pain in the arse if… and cost a lot of money, if we want to do this and get a house of our own. And so, after we went and saw this place, heaps of fridges, heaps of furniture in different rooms, the lady was like, “Oh, if you need anything out of these other rooms just take it. Just shuffle it around, you know, we’ll just organise it. Just say what you need and we’ll find it in another room and put it in your room.”.

So, long story short, once we finished checking the place out, we got in the car, we were having a bit of a chat about it whilst we drove home, and we were going to go, and see all these other places, but we ended up just deciding “Maybe, we just give this a go for a month. We’ll go… we’ll give her the rent for the month. We’ll get a place finally somewhere we can get settled, get organised, see how it goes, and just wing it, and just see… hopefully that works out. Otherwise I guess we keep looking. In a month’s time when hopefully it won’t be as busy.”.

So, that was yesterday and we now have somewhere where moving into on Sunday, the Pakistani embassy, the old Pakistani embassy. So, it should be really good. Fingers crossed. Fingers crossed, guys.

AE 431: The 3 Australian Accents – General, Cultivated, & Broad

G’day, guys. My name is Pete and I’m the host of Aussie English. Welcome to this video. Today, I want to show you the three types of Australian accent. Let’s go.

So, if you’re learning Australian English guys and you’re wanting to perfect that Australian accent, make sure that you hit that Subscribe button and the icon next to it, the bell icon, so that you can stay up to date with all of my new videos.

So, quick disclaimer, guys, I am not a linguist. I am simply an English teacher specifically teaching Australian English and a lot of my students have asked me to put this video together to show you guys the main kinds of Australian accent.

As you may or may not be aware, there is quite a bit of variation in the Australian accent. Strewth!

Now we’re not going to cover every single variant in today’s video. I just want to cover the three main kinds.

And they are the Cultivated Accent. Hello! I’m Cultivated Pete and I speak Australian English with a cultivated accent.

The General Accent. G’day, guys! I go as I’m General Pete and I speak with a general Australian accent. How’s it going?

And the Broad Accent. Yeah, g’day, guys! I’m Broad Pete and I speak Australian English with a broad Australian accent.

Alright, so according to Wikipedia,

“The Cultivated Australian accent has in the past been perceived as indicating high social class or education. It has some similarities to Receive Pronunciation and the Transatlantic Accent.

So, some famous Australians who speak with a cultivated accent include actors Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush, as well as ex-prime minister Malcolm Fraser. Let’s have a listen.

Yes. Well, no, I actually grew up in Melbourne and then I came to Sydney to go to the National Institute here, and… and then, got catapulted out and I thought, “Well, I’ll give it five years and see what happens.”.

Johnny Depp’s one of the great character actors of our time, I believe, trapped in the leading man’s body. He’s got the best of both worlds. He has a brilliantly absurd sense of humour.

Most people aren’t aware of it, but 1975 was, I think, the only year since the migration program began when more people left Australia.

Yeah, you blokes are just a bunch of posh c*nts.

Well, I never! How unsophisticated!

Yeah, I’m going to stay out of this one.

Right, now the strongest Australian accent. According to Wikipedia:

Broad Australian English is recognisable and familiar to English speakers around the world. It is prevalent nationwide, but is especially common in rural areas. In Australia, this dialect is sometimes called ‘Strine’ or ‘Strayan’ a shortening of the word ‘Australian’, and the speaker of the dialect may be referred to as an Ocker.

Some examples of Australians who speak with a Broad Australian accent include ex-Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, and actor Paul Hogan. Let’s have a listen.

And I do meet women around the world, and really, the only thing they know about Australia is they might know something about kangaroos, something about koalas, and about that speech.

Do you miss The Outback? Oh, absolutely. First thing, get off the plane, mate, didn’t go home, BOOM! Straight into the bush. Free me swag out, camped under the stars, and I was healed up. That’s great!

Wonderful and weird at the same time. I had the rare and exotic thing of being the flavour of the month or flavour of the year almost for about a year at all. And then it all… If you have it sort of come out with another blockbuster, it’s all over. You’re forgotten.

Well, I do believe US “posh c*nts”, would refer to you broadies as ‘ocker’ or ‘bogan’, depending on your social proclivities or whether or not you have a job.

Yeah righto! F *ck off, mate!

Yeah. I’m going to avoid this one as well.

Last but not least, and the most common Australian accent that you are likely to hear is the General Accent. Okay? So, according to Wikipedia:

The General Australian English Accent is the most common of Australian accents. It is especially prominent in urban Australia and is used as a standard language for Australian films, television programs, and advertising.

So, aside from the average Australian, some famous Aussies who speak with a General Accent include actors Eric Bana and Hugh Jackman, as well as Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe. Let’s have a listen.

Oh, it was so much fun and I’d sort of forgotten how much fun he can have and are allowed to have that work. You know, ’cause a lot of the movies I work on are quite dramatic and sometimes the sets are very very serious. So, to go to work where, you know, laughing your head off all day long was kind of encouraged and you didn’t get into trouble was so novel.

Two musicals early on, which shocked me that I was even up for a musical. You know, and I was an actor, theatre actor really. And then, I couldn’t get seen from films back in Sydney. This is way back in mid ’90s.

Look, I notice where the water moves. I notice, you know, how it’s around me, and if, you know, someone’s out with their kick, I hear that, and I kind of feel it. It does affect me a little bit.

I think we’re pretty much just your average normal Australian to be honest.

Also lower-class riffraff.

Yeah, these guys are a bunch of wankers too. Way too posh.

Alright, guys. I hope you enjoyed that video. That was meant to be a bit of tongue in cheek satire whilst also being educational and showing you some examples of the three most common accents that you will see when you come to Australia.

There are some other sort of variants that I will try to cover in the future.

Yeah, yeah, no, we do plumbing work also, yeah? Yeah!

And he goes, “Don’t be a hero, mate!”.

We got a good man up here.

Also, don’t forget to hit the subscribe button and the bell icon if you want to stay up to date with all of my videos, guys. I teach Australian English that is the focus of this channel. My job here is to help you better understand or better sound like an Australian English speaker.

Until next time, guys, I hope you have a ripper of a day and I’ll see you soon. Have a good one.
