For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE.

Always ALWAYS Double Check!

A local restaurant in my town has just opened its doors.  Its very very new. And, I'm not quite sure how well it will do for business. They are hiring for a new chef.... here is a snippet of their advertisement:

(please note that they are a Japanese / Australian Cuisine restaurant)

             To be successful for this role you must have;
             A minimum of 2 - 3 years experience at Sous Chef level
            Creative flair and a passion for food.
            Excellent communication skill (necessary to peak Japanese or Korean)
             Relevant trade qualifications.
             Proven experience in Japanese cuisine (sushi and hot food), desert as well
             Ability to excel under pressure
Did you pick up on any mistakes?
Here is what I found:
communication skills are required so that you may PEAK Japanese or Korean... yeah, I never thought to write something like that on my resume... stooopid ol me.. I can SPEAK another language.. but damn it if i didnt pass PEAK.  Im sorry, but thats too funny of any error in the communication skills required.  

And, did you catch that another requirement for this position is that you must have proven experience in  "a region so arid because of little rainfall that it supports only sparse and widely spaced vegetation or no vegetation at all"... I mean that is the desert afterall.. so if you have great wildlife skills and can survive on nothing at all.. please apply!
Oh, I think Im about to pee my pants with laughter.  
If you dont believe this is a real add.. check out this link:

I noticed that too. Umm - seriously - how hard is to remember that you always want second helpings of dessert and that means there are TWO Ses (not sure how to write the plural of S)

Ah well - maybe they don't like dessert.

yeah, but they sure know how to make it!went there last night, and I've got to say, they;ve really got it together in every other respect than spelling!really nice decor and crockery,excellent food, very generous servings, and wait-staff with a clue who are also friendly!The prices are soooo reasonable for the quality and quantity of food,and yes, hard to believe, it's in Coolum!
so nice to see Coolum happening on a Thurs night, with Sierra bar next door pumping as well.Bout time we had a decent restaurant that's got it together.Not surprisingly, they're from Sydney!!And that's fine with me.

Highly recommended.
