What I Eat That Is Yum

I always wanted to do one of those posts on what I actually eat and cook with. Blogs give the illusion that we eat out a lot but really, most of my meals are home-cooked (I can thank reading hundreds of recipes a year for that). Here are some of my go-tos for quick and […]

Torrential Downpours and Vegan Love

I love a good surprise. Unplanned things, adventures into the unknown. I live for spontaneity. Because why? It’s such a content-filled life when you’re not planning everything meticulously and living for to-do lists. I used to freak out when I didn’t remember what I did yesterday but now I embrace it. You ask why again? […]

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. Here’s my take on the happenings of the festival this year. As a curious food-obsessive should, I had to […]

Middle Eastern Adventure

There are those of us who hate surprises but I am one of those who loves a good unexpected event. When it’s a positive situation, that is. Australia Day turned out to be rather sad and droopy this year, with the sky turning a stormy grey right about when I was meeting a Melbourne-based friendwho […]

India – The Land of Colour.

Say it with me: I. AM. GOOD. ENOUGH. Say it to yourself in front of the mirror and say it like you actually mean it. Have you said it? Oh yay, you’re the best. I’m amazed every day at what humanity – myself included – can put their minds to and achieve on a daily […]

Craving Coziness

Oh hello! Crazy story to tell actually! Tonight I decided at the last minute to ask a friend if she was up for a catch up via the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk and she agreed. We agreed on 7pm, she picked me up and it was clear that we were in for a little […]

Brunch By The Beach

The time between posts is inevitably getting longer and longer. Remember how I mentioned I now live in a semi-run-down art deco flat in Bondi? Well with all the hoarded crap (I threw a lot of stuff out of a housemates’ room today and the strange objects I came across included: green apple ‘transparent’ soap […]

Think.Eat.Save

A couple of weeks back, I attended the Think.Eat.Save. OzHarvest event where corporate professionals and a motley bunch of city folk joined in to raise awareness about rescued fresh produce. Last year, OzHarvest aimed for 5,000 people to share in a free meal made with rescued veg and rice. This year, supporting the worldwide Think.Eat.Save […]

Melbourne: The Mirroring City

The day starting with aching feet. Not unusual considering how my genetics ‘blessed’ me with big feet. We were in Richmond – otherwise known as Melbourne’s Paddington – and it was our second last day to explore the world through the colder, much cooler side (yes, Melbournites are cooler than Sydneysiders. What was that saying – […]

Chocolate Saves The Day

Sometimes I just want a space to vent, a place where I can scribble down random thoughts and chaotic days. Just so I don’t forget them. A notebook isn’t enough, the paper ageing quicker and more gracefully than my mind ever would. These are the times when the Internet becomes a blessing – because lucky […]
