It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere!

I felt like a kid on Christmas morning, it was time for Tash and I to head to Hunter Valley to go wine tasting! 🍷🍷🍷 We woke up at 5am and headed into Bondi junction to start our 2 hour bus journey. Here we are looking fresh faced for so early in the morning: We…

Rotten Garlic Anyone?

I’ve been in Oz for 6 months now and I still get excited when it’s time to go food shopping. The aisles filled with different brands than I’m used to; the fresh seafood available in store and even just the way the veggies are laid out keeps me so interested. Whenever I go on holiday…

Valentine’s Day 💕

Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t the best, but when you live in Sydney it’s an excuse to party!  I went out to Coogee Pavillion for a singles event with my friend from work and her friend. Here we are in our glad rags: The venue was filled with pink balloons, roses and a kissing…

Trying a New Kind of Bubble in my Drink

I’m a big fan of Instagram foods and drinks, not because I’m a sheep but instead I love the fact that there is always something slightly weird about them. For example, kombucha – the new hipster drink – you’d think it was just a fizzy fruit drink but no, it’s a fermented tea and I…

Laters, baby 😘

*Flashback* It was the summer of 2012; I was working hard at camp teaching archery and being a cabin counsellor (basically I taught and lived with the kids) . My peers were all female and aged between 18-28. What was a very popular book trilogy at that time? What got us all through children shitting…

Ladies Night!

It was Saturday night, I wasn’t working and had some money in my account. What did that mean? Tash and I were going out out!  Here we are with our glad rags on: We decided to head to the city and Scary Canary was the club of choice. We were in the queue for no…

Still Discovering…

So I’ve been in Australia over five months now and I’m still learning about the produce here. I love it! The other day in work we received a parcel which contained finger limes. I had heard all about these and they’d finally arrived! They’re tiny little limes and when you open them the fruit looks…

Dinner with Mum and Dad

So it’s become a thing now that at least once a week, I go to Tasha and Ben’s place for a proper home cooked meal. I always go home stuffed and satisfied. It’s like they’re my surrogate parents out here in Oz looking out for me, otherwise I’d be purely living off of tuna pasta. …

Chinese New Year

January 28th brought in a second new year for me, this time a rooster was involved!  I’m of course talking about Chinese New Year. I usually never celebrate this festival but this year was different, as one of my colleagues at Poke is from Malaysia. She was educating the team on what the rooster means;…

Australia Day

G’day! January 26th is Australia Day, and it’s a time to drink and eat!  As usual, the hosts with the most, Tash and Ben put on an awesome spread! Ben was on barbecue duty, whilst Tash, her friend and I sat back and drank.  Here’s Ben looking very Aussie: We started off with a cheese…
