It was fantastic to be on the front cover of the The Age Weekend Lift-out! e arrived with our Director Lela McGregor at the location shoot in 40 degree heat. Whew…The photoshoot was amazing and The Age captured a great photo at the St Kilda Botanic Gardens with the magnificent backdrop of the historical palm trees.  A little bit of tropical paradise in the heart of Melbourne. That’s us on the front. Stephan Lagoulis and Peronel Taylor!!!

Balinese Princess

Balinese Princess Ayu and Kren are amazed how the paparazzi caught them riding the No.8 Tram to the city. “We tried to stay inconspicuous so we wore our plainest clothes so we wouldn’t attract any attention” says Princess Ayu!

Getting ready for New Year’s Eve fireworks! Bring on 2011! Woohoo!!

Balinese Princess says Merry Xmas!

by Eliza on December 12, 2010

Royal Princess Ayu and Kren the Funky Monkey were most delighted to meet Santa Claus…..even though he was a bit stiff.

Kren was so delighted by Santa, he left his banana for him to have for afternoon tea. Lucky Santa !

Princess Ayu and Kren touched down in Melbourne with a little over 1 month to go till the premiere.

Kren fights over his last banana with Yarra Tram Inspector. Did he really think he could pay the Tram Driver with a banana?

Lucky Princess Ayu saved the day!
