The days are getting shorter and darkness is upon us a lot earlier now. By 5pm the Sun starts to hide and I can just tell that the customers are rushing home before darkness arrives. The cold morning air and gusts of wind that come through the door is proof that Winter is well and [...]
I don’t think I’ve ever posted a revisit to any restaurant or cafe, even if I do go there a lot. I just feel like there’s generally not much more I can offer in terms of new information or photos to my readers, that is, unless if there’s a significant change to what we had [...]
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 [...]
To my dear readers, did you all have a good Valentine’s Day? I did in a way. Although there was no romantic dinner, lavish presents or even being relaxing at all, I did spend it with my beloved (not that I have a choice) and kept myself busy in the shop. I even set up [...]
How many cafes do you know that can make you reminisce about your childhood? How many cafes do you know that are run by volunteers and donate money to charitable causes? How many cafes can do both AND make delicious coffees and healthy bites? I only know one and that’s Kinfolk on Bourke St.

I realised I’ve left writing about Henry and the Fox until a bit too late. Their entire menu had changed since my visit but it would be such a waste to not blog about the place that I decided I’d go ahead and write about my experiences anyway. I might write an updated post after [...]
The words ‘milk bar’ conjures up a lot of childhood memories. During a period of time in primary school, milk bars were my best friends. On the way to and from school and Chinese school, I’d always stop by one of these with a few friends to buy gobstoppers, red skins, Freddo frogs and the [...]
Ever since I turned foodie, my liking for all things vintage has soared through the roof, to the point where I wanted my whole house decorated with ancient furnishings and decorations collected from op shops and junk yards. I loved everything with peeling paint and rusty metals and rustic wood that had been worn with [...]
If you live in Melbourne, you would have no doubt walked or driven past this shop in the CBD that glowed a bright orange colour, not from neons but from fresh oranges hanging outside the shopfront. It has been like this ever since I can remember and that shop is Tropicana Juice/Food Bar.
