Game of Fours Challenge

A fellow moto-blogger and complete bastard, Bandit Rider tagged me in Game of 4's. A challenge in which four questions are provided, each to be provided four answers. I don't normally like these things but seeing as everyone else is jumping off the cliff I thought I would too. All images blatantly stolen from the interwebs.

The four questions are as follows:

1) What is your favorite food?
2) What is your favorite drink?
3) Places you've been?
4) Names that you are known by?

Favourite Food

I generally like fairly simple foods, and don't really adventure too far from that. You might say I'm a steak and 3 veg kind of guy but here are some of my favourites. I'm not really a fish guy I find fish kind of boring and tasteless.

1. Spaghetti Bolognese - So simple even I can cook this and it can't go wrong. I usually make my own version of this and make it in the slow cooker over 4-5 hours, the fragrances from the garlic goes through the whole house.

2. Pizza - I love a freshly made wood fired pizza from a proper Italian pizza place, not your run of the mill Domino's, Pizza Hut crap. They are pretty rubbish but your small pizza-pasta places can have some fantastic pizza, hold the anchovies though.

3. Roast Chicken/beef - Yep another simple meal either chicken or roast beef cooked with roasted veggies carrot, potato, sweet potato, pumpkin and onions all with a side of veggies and smoother with gravy. Yum

Favourite Drink

Well this one is quite easy and I think you guys can already guess this one. It's got to be BEER of course closely followed by coffee. I'm not a big fizzy drink fan like coke or anything like that unless it has some bourbon in it and would prefer water or cordial.

1. Beer - What sort you ask? Well I'll have a crack at just about any beer but some of my favourites at the moment are the new craft beer Pale Ales that are popping up everywhere. James Squire's 150 Lashes and Gage Roads Brewing Atomic Pale Ale are my current favourites.

2 . Coffee - I love a good cup of coffee, usually a flat white or a cappuccino I don't usually go for the latte or mocha's.

3. Iced Coffee - When I don't feel like a coffee I've been known to indulge in an Iced Coffee. Not the best for the waistline.

Places I've been

I haven't really travelled that far from Australia. I've been to every state of Australia which is a fair size.

1.  New Zealand - Been three times so far, honeymooned there in 2007 on both Islands and then visited the South Island in 2011 and then again for a motorcycle tour in 2014. Soon to be a Motorcycle tour of the North Island in 2017 where we can ham it up with Geoff and Andrew..

Franz Joseph Glacier

2. Fiji - We went to Fiji for a family holiday in 2013. Its a quite a relaxing place to laze around an do nothing.

Names I'm known by

1. Chillertek or Chiller - How this came about was about 10 years ago my brother Flyboy and I were playing online Wargames mainly Call of Duty - his handle was Flyboy so I came up with Chillertek as at the time I was a commercial Air Conditioning mechanic by trade funnily enough fixing Chillers of all things.

2. Steve - Yup that's my real name, and like Geoff if I hear Steven being called by my wife I'm in big trouble.

3. Hos - Part of my last name just shortened.


  1. Good job I've just had breakfast with all those yummy food photos Steve! That's a great graphic of Australia compared with Europe. One of the few facts I retained from school geography classes is that Australia is about 30 times the area of the UK. God knows why I remembered that :-)

    1. Yeah why does useless stuff like stay in your head but stuff that you need for your job just evaporates from memory?

  2. You had me at spaghetti and pizza.

    Thanks for playing along with the rest of us lemmings.

  3. So you like that Atomic Pale? Good choice, eh?

    1. Thanks for introducing another great beer to me cheers

  4. God lad. Oh, and there's nothing wrong with spag bol either (been known to create and devour this culinary delight myself).

  5. well thanks for the answers steve
    looking at that map maybe I will go international it seems
    am heading down to greece soon actually
    will have to go and get a passport

  6. You are a great sport. Ah, I sense some Italian influence at work here...

  7. Hey,

    Great post here you have created.
    The Chinese had been drinking tea for centuries and
    tea was one of the main new products Dutch shippers
    conveyed once more from their treks to the Far East
    path back toward the start of the seventeenth century.
    Truly this post is exceptionally crucial for us.
