Vietnam 2017

My opinion is that for a romantic relationship between two people to work, there needs to be a Type A and a Type B. Night Owl showed me a scene from a stand up comedy once, where the gentleman explains that the Type B person is the one that goes through life singing “La-di-dah”, skipping and…

Chaco Bar

It’s no secret to those that are close to me that I love Japan. Before my first visit, it was not on my list of must-visit places in the world – back then, I was still naive, and wanted to go to Paris, the States, like every wide-eyed teenager. It was upon graduating university that…

Five Days in Hong Kong

It’s the worst form of torture to constantly receive flight sale notifications when you’re almost broke! It’s the promise and lure of an upcoming holiday which keeps me going through the working day, the working week, the working month. Night Owl and I have recently booked flights in October to Vietnam for $350 return (bangin’ bargain), and…

The Edwards

Now that its the New Year,  it’s all about getting back into schedule. On top of the start-of-the-year office scramble after a two week shut-down, I’ve taken on another permanent group dance fitness class during the week and I’m certainly feeling all of the luxurious eating and drinking that happened over the Christmas and New…

Three Williams & Exclusive Vines

I know I’ve already written a blog post previously on Three Williams cafe in Redfern. The infamous brioche, those narnies, and (in my opinion) the best thrice-cooked beer-battered chips in Sydney. So when I was invited to Three Williams once again for a boozy brunch to preview a few items on their new menu and to…

Beef & Beer Masterclass @ Mumu Grill

I remember my very first good steak like it was yesterday. It was at a law school function, funnily enough – as I’ve always found that food mass-produced for functions with your alternate style of serving tends to come out average at best. Before this time, I had only ever had your usual rump and sirloin…

Drunken Rice

Every few weeks or so a catch up gets organised with a few friends from my old pro bono workplace, which inevitably falls onto a Friday evening after work. Our usual go-to (for about the last year) has been Taste of Shanghai in World Square Shopping Centre. We start with buying a few six packs of beer…

The Burger Project

With the news of Australian celebrity chef Neil Perry opening a burger joint in World Square – every foodie perked up their ears. Justin North’s Charlie & Co has been a massive hit, and so it was about time to see if another celebrity chef could step up to the plate. It’s well known amongst us that…

Garlic Prawns with Beer

I remember back when I was at university, there were days where I would finish in the mid to late afternoon and I’d be ridiculously hungry after a whole blurred day of tutorials, lectures, study groups and research. I take the train home from Macquarie and transfer at Chatswood, however every Thursday I end up…
