JAPAN x KIT KAT

The title says it all y’all. Japan and Kit Kats are a matcha (MAMA! I DID A PUN!) made in heaven. You guys know I’m Japan-cray so a friend who went recently got me a TONNE of them and it’s been like 3 months and I still jump around like a little kid when I […]

I Cho Cho San You

Hello lovely humans. Welcome to my space of the interwebs I’m too lazy to post regularly on. That’s the one sentence I feel that all bloggers – no matter how many followers, posts per week or motivation to write on a constant basis – should let their readers know.

Taste of Sydney 2015

Things aren’t always too good to be true. Things become too good to be true. Taste of Sydney is still one of my fave food-focused events but it’s nowhere near as awe-inspiring as it was 5 years ago.
