I hope you all had a great Easter because I did. We were finally able to take a day off together and in good time too as it was Yuye’s birthday last Thursday. Time really flies when you’re busy. It feels like just yesterday when Yuye and I started this liquor shop and it’s now [...]
It’s been a hectic few weeks with some very exciting and slightly scary happenings in my life. Yuye and I have purchased a business! A liquor retail business to be specific. So for those of you who like to drink, be jealous. Be very jealous.
Hi my lovely readers! Happy 2013! I’m finally back in action. Sorry it’s taken me so long to recover but I’ve really been quite busy while I was in China, plus bad internet connections kept me away. Now I’m desperately trying to adjust to this Melbourne weather and trying not to get heatstroke…I just came [...]
I’m currently in China so I won’t be able to write all that much in the next few weeks, especially when I have no internet, however I will endeavour to write as much as I can. I seem to always be in China though, and always miss out on the best time of the year [...]
Apologies for the periods of silence lately, there’s just been so much on my mind and there has been a lot of new and exciting things happening in my life. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to regular blogging soon. The weather has been scorching hot lately. I love the sunshine and the good [...]

It’s like noodles in China, there’s thin and thick and round and flat but there’s no where near [...]
Before this week, I’ve only used my ice cream maker at most 3-4 times and I’ve had this ice cream maker for many years now. I’m not sure what the sudden change is but I’ve managed to make 3 ice creams in the past 4 days. That’s almost 1 litre of ice cream a day! [...]
I’m sure like many of you, I am addicted to reading food magazines. I just can’t go past those delicious and beautifully styled photography and trust worthy recipes that also give me insight into seasonal ingredients and provide endless inspiration for new dishes to make.
The warmer weather has had me craving for healthier and cold foods such as salads and sandwiches. Having very rich comfort food at the moment makes me more lethargic and full even though they’re still very tasty. Although I like pork the best, I also love my chicken (I really like all meats…haha), however I [...]
Doesn’t the colours and textures of a beautifully presented dish make you want to dig right in? I’ve been re-watching a lot of Iron Chef episodes lately while I write my posts and surf the internet which is a very bad habit (I’m doing it right now) because all the beautiful food makes me hungry [...]
