A Wee Getaway to Maroochydore 

The group had worked 2 weeks straight and had spent the last few days on second picks, so we were very low. Luckily, good old Ellie saw this and arranged for us to go to her friends for a couple of days, down in Maroochydore.  So the boys went in one car and the girls…

Battle of the Cheese Breads

Easter had come and gone, so it was time to get back to work.  Myself and two other co workers went in bright and early to start prepping for a busy week.  Rita, my lovely Brazilian friend, produced a treat halfway through our shift. They are called Pão de Queijo which is literally cheese bread…

Happy Easter 🐰🐣

What a long weekend it has been! It was filled with hikes, chocolate, spiders and laughs.  Here’s my summary of Easter 2017: Good Friday The sun was back, yay! In celebration Tash, Ben and I did a 10km coastal walk from Spit Bridge to Manly. The views were absolutely amazing and it made the walk…

The Perks of the Job

Working in a restaurant is a great opportunity to try lots of food and open yourself up to new flavours. As for my place of work, I get to try Hawaiian/Asian/Australian dishes.  Lunch came around and I decided to create a dish that encompassed everything I have learned so far. Here’s my recipe:  100g thinly…

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Over the past few weeks I feel as if I’ve been living as a housewife and my friend Tash is my companion in all this. You see, we’re now working weird hours so they only time for a catch up is lunchtime during the middle of the week. We now rub shoulders with the very…

Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday had come around for another year and that only meant one thing; mandatory dessert after a mid week meal!  What I didn’t realise that it wasn’t really a normal thing to celebrate in Australia as when I mentioned the awesome gorge fest, I was greeted with very puzzled faces. Much like Bonfire Night…

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…

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. …

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…

Broke and Hungry

So Christmas and New Year were over once again, however I didn’t feel that emptiness I usually felt after the magic of the festive period ended. After all, it was summer! The only thing I did feel the bitter sting of was being bloody broke! Back home I was used to holiday pay but when…

New Year’s Day

After a fantastic night, we were up bright and early (Tash cannot sleep in to save herself) ready to enjoy New Year’s Day!  Ben was the saviour this time and cooked us a full fry up, consisting of: Bacon Sausages  Hash browns  Toast It was the best thing for a hangover. We all facetimed our…
