The Road to Alice Springs

So this trip happened weeks ago but I’ve had a manic time since then, so now I can finally document my trip! Tash, Ben and myself packed up and set into the centre of Adelaide to get picked up by our tour. It was 6am, rainy and so cold; we were more than ready to…

Adelaide

We arrived in another city! This time we ended up in Adelaide, all the way in South Australia. It was time to say goodbye to our campervan, it was very a emotional and stressful time as cleaning it was a massive task (not to mention the rude Aussie bloke saying if we broke his equipment…

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 Best Brunch in Town!

My manager came into work one day and was unbelievably enthusiastic about the brunch she just had, so I of course had to check it out!  I didn’t want to go by myself so dragged Tash and Ben along.  We ventured just over an hour by bus to a place called Forest Lodge, where a…

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…

The Pros and Cons of Travelling; as told by a Twenty Something

Travelling has always been in my blood; my parents met in Saudia Arabia, I always went on exotic holidays as a kid and my dreams always consisted of new destinations.  My first ‘real’ experience of travelling was when I was nineteen and I decided to travel to the USA to become a camp counsellor for…

Saturday in Sydney

Normally I’m working in the restaurant during the weekends but as the weather hasn’t been so kind to us recently, I managed to get a Saturday off!  Usually I rise around 1pm and after chilling in bed, grabbing something to eat and eventually showering – I’m ready to conquer the day at around 4pm. However,…

Fusion Foods

What do Mexican and Asian cuisines have in common? They both shared a bowl to become my lunch the other day.  I was hungry and I hadn’t done a food shop so I looked through my fridge and cupboards and decided to merge two cuisines!  Here’s my recipe: 1 tbsp homemade guacamole (red onion, tomato,…

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…

Ladies Who Lunch 💁🏽

Last week I was treated to three outings with Tash and, of course food had to be involved!  The first trip of the week was shopping and lunch in Bondi Junction. We decided to eat first so we had enough energy to do the exhausting task of browsing through the stores. We went for a…

Lions and Tigers, and Steak, oh my! 

I’m starting to think that Tash and I are a couple as we meet up for ‘date night’ once a week… This week we went for dinner and a movie in Randwick.  1st Analysis: Dinner Don’t even remember the name of the restaurant but it was a basic looking cafe style place. Once again, we…

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…
