When I started my bottle shop in the north, I was worried that I will no longer be able to eat brunch like I used to. For one, there’s no time (or more like I’m too lazy to get up early…). The more important part was there just doesn’t seem to be as many hip [...]
I had a sudden revelation recently. I think I’ve run out of new cafes to visit in my area! Oh what a dilemma. It doesn’t help that I live in the outer suburbs where there’s not all that many shops to begin with. At times like this I really wish I lived in or near [...]
It was not long ago that Yuye and I were discussing just what restaurants Glen Waverley needed. It’s starting to turn into Malaysia town with my favourite Hong Kong style cafe, Star East Cafe, closing not too long ago. What’s opening in its place I hear you ask? Pappa Rich that’s what. So hence my [...]
I really love going to Knox City Shopping Centre, as I’ve found the best green grocer right in the middle of the mall. It’s not where you’d expect to find such an amazing green grocer that’s for sure. Every time I go, I’m amazed at just how cheap and fresh the produce are and most [...]
I know Father’s Day was almost 2 months ago, I somehow subconsciously avoided blogging about the dinner I had together with my family and Yuye’s family that day until now. I blame it on the sheer number of dishes we ordered and the restaurant visits following that one, resulting in me pushing the review back…Yes [...]
As weird as it seems for those of you who don’t know me in real life, I used to be and still am quite an introvert. But I wasn’t always like this as a child. When I still lived in Shanghai, all the grown ups loved my sweet mouth and apparently talented way of getting [...]
Do you find that sometimes people argue over the silliest and most unworthy things? Yuye and I hardly argue since he has a great temper (not me though but he lets me get my ways ) so whenever we do argue, it sticks in my head like gum on your shoes. There was this once [...]
Can you believe that there’s another new(ish) addition to the already jam packed Kingsway dining scene in Glen Waverley Called The Black Toro? At least this time, it’s a type of cuisine that’s completely different to what we’re used to – Mexican/Spanish tapas.
The Spring flowers are starting to bloom on my street. I often think ‘it’s not that cold today’ and forget to take a jacket with me. Sometimes the wind feels warm but refreshing on my face and these are all signs that Spring is slowly creeping around the corner. Winter is almost at an end. [...]
There’s nothing like waking up to the aromatic smell of freshly brewed and ground coffee. But since I don’t have a coffee roaster in my home (nor do I even have a coffee machine), the next best thing is to have breakfast at a coffee brewer plus cafe.
