All about Jason...

So all my blogs seem to be about me, so this post is just about Jason and a few of the things that he does to keep himself occupied here in WA. Jason works at a small niche company called Yambay. From their website "Yambay is a leading provider of field-service, job scheduling and mobile platform products servicing enterprise customers from the resource, utilities and field-service sectors". In my words (and Jason will probably tell me I have it wrong haha) Yambay provide the mobile software that companies suh as Western Power (electricity transmission and distribution) use for fault call outs. Jason spends about 3 full days a week down at Western Power in East Perth and the other 2 days at his main office in Subiaco.

Here's a few shots of jason over the last couple of years.

In terms of recreation, Jason has a few things to keep him occupied. Firstly and foremostly (well it takes up mst his time anyway) Jason has a passion for his computer and his online games. Some nights I have to get up and remind him that its 2 or 3 in the morning. Here's Jason playing. His headphones have him connected with other members of his playing group (clan). They all talk to each other. It was a bit weird at first hearing him talk (seemingly to himself) in the other room, but now I am used to it.Jason did a lot of martial arts growing up and recently he has headed back to it. This time to do brazilian jiu jitzu (BJJ) two nights a week. This is a martial art, combat sport and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting (thanks wikipedia).

It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—this is by applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.

This is Jason's gi hanging on the line drying out after a night of BJJ (I wasn't allowed a photo of him in it). You will also see the BBQ in the background, Jason is a whiz at BBQ cooking.Next up is Jason's green fingers and his love of bansai. Here is a sample of his plants out in the garden on the $5 table from the recycling centre. The big one in the bag was bought to celebrate Poppy and will stay in the bag for at least another year or so while it develops.
Here are a couple of the smaller bansai, with many, many years of growing ahead of them.
Finally, Jason plays water polo for the Melville Water Polo Club, this club is amazing, they have their own swimming pool, right on the edge of the Swan River (near Fremantle). See below for a shot of the pool. Jason plays once a week and trains once a week. His team is pretty good, often winning 12 or 13 goals to 1. Jason does lots of other things but these are the main ones for the moment. See ya next time.
