Moo Moo Steak & Burger Club, Krakow 26/11/2013

I had a Moo-Moo Baa-Baa Burger!

Moo Moo Steak & Burger Club, Krakow Moo Moo Steak & Burger Club, Krakow During the last year or so my partner and I have been trying to eat in as many different restaurants as possible here in Krakow. The restaurant I am reviewing on this occasion is Moo Moo Burger. At the time of this review we have visited Moo Moo burger on two separate occasions and I hope there will be many more to come. Moo Moo Burger is "officially" known as "Moo Moo Steak & Burger Club" but I don’t think I have ever heard anyone call it anything more than Moo Moo Burger so for the sake of this review I will be referring to the restaurant as Moo Moo Burger or Moo Moo. So, Moo Moo Burger is, as it sounds, a restaurant which specialises in burgers and burger themed meals. We initially chose this place in particular as firstly the name made me laugh and secondly at the time we had planned to eat out we both fancied burgers, but something of a higher standard than Mc Donald’s! Location Moo Moo Burger is located in the centre of Krakow on a side street just off Florianska Street which the main street leading to the main market square. It is about a 10 minute walk from the central train station and shopping galleries. It is located on ul. Swietego Krzyza, number 15 and is about a 5 minute walk from the nearest tram stop. We found the restaurant quite easily as it is clearly signed with a Moo Moo Burger sign above the entrance and there are a couple of nice blue neon signs in the windows with "Moo Moo Steak & Burger Club" lit up.

Vancouver 2010: The Official Videogame of the Winter Olympic Games (Xbox 360) 06/11/2013

A Gold Medal for Vancouver 2010? Hmm... Maybe a Bronze!

Vancouver 2010: The Official Videogame of the Winter Olympic Games (Xbox 360) Vancouver 2010. Xbox 360 Vancouver 2010 is the Official game of the Winter Olympics which were held in Vancouver in 2010. I bought this game around 4 months ago when I was looking for some more "wintery "games to play as I was coming close to completing my favourite snowboarding game and I knew I was going to need a nice snowy replacement for this. So, does Vancouver 2010 fit the bill? Well, not really. While I do enjoy the game and I find it great fun to play I do feel that there is "something" missing as I will now explain. Getting Started After putting the game disc into your Xbox 360 console and going through all the usual manufacturer logos and Health & Safety warnings you will finally arrive at the title screen. It is at this point where I was expecting to be launched into some kind of story line about being an Olympic superstar or at least be given one of those annoying tutorials which you cannot skip as it turns out to be quite useful! But as it turned out, when you press the start button from the main menu you are swapped from menu to menu until you have selected the sports you wish to play and unless you decide to select training mode then the only tutorials offered are just at the beginning of each sport where you can press the B button to activate the tutorial. As a result of this I have quite often flicked past the tutorial and ended up having to reload the event as I had no idea what I am doing in most of them! From the main menu you will have the choice of ...

Dead as a Doornail - Charlaine Harris 08/10/2013

Almost as Dead as a Doornail!

Dead as a Doornail - Charlaine Harris Dead as a Doornail - Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Aside from her regular job as a waitress she also has the more unusual talent of mind reading. Due to this unusual gift the regular humans don't really like to get too close to Sookie, however as her telepathy doesn't extend to the Vampires minds she often finds herself spending time with the vampires and quite often she will end up working for them too, especially if it comes to interrogating humans for them. Sookie's life is not only filled with vampires but also Shape-shifters and Werewolves, all of these seem to come with their own fair share of drama and problems. As you can imagine, this is far from the quiet life which Sookie longs for but the quiet life is nowhere in sight as it seems as soon as one event is over with another one is following not too far behind. Recently Sookie's brother Jason was kidnapped by were-panthers who continually bit him and turned him into one of their own. Were-panthers appear to be like a cross between Werewolves and Shapeshifters. Werewolves are humans who turn to Werewolves during the full moon and Shapeshifters can turn into any animal they want to where as Were-panthers can only turn into panthers during the full moon. The full moon is approaching fast and Jason is about to change for the first time. Sookie needs to be there to support her brother through this time, but as always, nothing is ever that simple in Sookie's life. While ...

Beach House - R. L. Stine 07/10/2013

I Don't Want to Stay at this Beach House!

Beach House - R. L. Stine Beach House - R. L. Stine The sun is shining, the sand is golden, it is the summer of 1956 and the teenagers are enjoying their summer break at the beach fooling around in the sea, playing beach games and generally enjoying their youth. Four teens in particular, Stuart, the cool guy of the group, the guy who everyone wants to hang out with. Ronnie, Stuarts friend who is known to be the joker of the group and loves nothing more than playing tricks on the girls Maria and Amy. Maria and Amy are best friends, both are described as being equally pretty, however Maria quite often feels jealousy towards Amy. Amy is in a relationship with Ronnie. During this summer the group have met a young guy by the name of Buddy, Buddy is staying at the local Beach House, this surprises the teens as to their knowledge no one has ever stayed there, in fact no one even owns it, but nonetheless Buddy is now staying there for the summer and as he seems like a nice guy the teens are happily spending the summer simply chilling out and relaxing together. The summer is going well, Maria is spoilt for choice between Stuart and Buddy with regards to who she wants to date and this seems to be the major issue of the summer, that is until one by one the teenagers begin to go missing. All of the disappearances appear to be completely random and totally unexplained. For years their disappearance remains a mystery, no one knows what happened that summer and why all of a sudden these teenagers disappeared. Did ...

Alphajax (Windows Phone) 26/09/2013

A for Alphajax, B for Brilliant!

Alphajax (Windows Phone) AlphaJax. Windows Phone AlphaJax is one of the number of Xbox Live games which are available to download for Windows Phones. A few months ago I became the happy owner of a Windows phone and AlphaJax was one of the first games I downloaded for the phone following a recommendation from a friend. So, lets start with the basics... AlphaJax is basically Scrabble under a different branding and with a slightly different layout of the board. The game follows the same principles as Scrabble, you begin the game with 7 letter tiles and you must make a word from these letters and place them on the board. The first word must go across the central "star" square. The star square is worth double points so choose carefully with regards to which letter you place on it. After your turn you will automatically receive new tiles to replace the ones you have used and it will then be your opponents turn. To get AlphaJax on your phone you will need to go to the games section of your Windows phone and do a search for AlphaJax. The game will then need time to download, this will vary depending on your connection speed but I remember mine was surprisingly fast. Let's Play Some Scrabb... Erm, I Mean AlphaJax! In AlphaJax there are a choice of opponents, you can choose to play with a friend if you both have the game and Windows Live ID's. This is my preferred option as I simply enjoy playing games with friends. There is also the option to challenge another player, who you don't know and who is picked ...

Shake & Bake, Krakow 18/06/2013

Shake 'n' Bake a Milkyway Cake!

Shake & Bake, Krakow Shake & Bake, Krakow A few weekends ago my partner was crazy enough to take part in a 5km race around Krakow, me being the sensible one in the relationship decided to sit and enjoy the sunshine rather than get hot and sweaty! After the run we decided to visit Shake & Bake. Shake & Bake is a small cafe in the centre of Krakow, Poland. It is located near to Teatr Bagatela bus and tram stops and is around a 5 minute walk from Krakow's main market square. Shake & Bake is easy to find as it is clearly signed with a nice logo. This was actually what caught our attention in the first place when we went past one day on the tram. A Warm Welcome As we entered Shake & Bake we were greeted by a nice lady who welcomed us and showed us the offers they had on and gave us a menu of drinks and cakes to look at. The lady who greeted us spoke excellent English and as far as I could tell she seemed to understand me very well too so there were no problems regarding ordering and a couple of questions I had. While looking at the menu and trying to decide between so many sweet flavoured cakes and drinks I took a little moment to take a look around. Shake & Bake is very small cafe with only a few tables and chairs and a very comfortable looking beanbag in the corner. The decor in Shake & Bake is very light coloured which take away the small feeling a little bit and at the same time creates a nice relaxing atmosphere. In the corner near the door there is a small bookshelf which has a selection of ...

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (Xbox 360) 05/06/2013

Your Mission... To Save the Earth from The Fallen Angels!

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (Xbox 360) El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (Xbox 360) A few months ago I was extremely lucky when a TEFL student of mine was given an Xbox 360 and due to the fact that he doesn't like games he then passed this gift on to me, for free! Included with the Xbox were a number of games which personally I wouldn't even have thought about purchasing if I had seen them in the shops. One of these games is El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, which will now be shortened to "El Shaddai" for this review as it is a bit of a lengthy title to repeat over and over! El Shaddai The story of El Shaddai is for me a little unusual and one I haven't really heard of in any game I have played in the past. The game is set at the beginning of the human race as we know it, the earth is still a strange and mysterious place and because of this God has sent 7 angels to keep watch over the humans and protect them from harm. However, seeing the way humans behave in their lives full of freedom and no worries or cares the angels turn against their God and they leave Heaven, or as it is put in the game, they fall from Heaven and are known as the Fallen Angels, which at the same time betrays their God and the powers above. Obviously this angers God and the powers that be and they set upon a plan to cause a huge flood on Earth, thankfully this plan is discovered and this is where you, the player, come into the story. Playing as the character Enoch you will need to work your way through the worlds fighting against ...
