5 Things I Miss about Melbourne Summers

December has always been my favourite month¬†as it meant a few special events. Christmas. Holidays. The end of a year and a time of reflection. The beginning of summer. How I relish those Aussie summers. For the first time in 9 years, I’m spending December away from Melbourne and as you can guess, I’m missing… Continue reading 5 Things I Miss about Melbourne Summers

Of Cherry Picking & Afternoon Tea

Cherry picking. Afternoon tea. What comes to mind when you think of these words? A perfect summer’s day in Melbourne, perhaps? ūüėČ Ms Gan and I seem to have done a lot of summer activities in 2014, with us traipsing around Europe in July… It just so happened that it was the beginning of summer… Continue reading Of Cherry Picking & Afternoon Tea

Brother Baba Budan vs. Market Lane Coffee

Where’s your favourite coffee haunt in the city? Well, as far as I know, when I ask people to name the best coffee place in the city, these 2 names tend to pop up in the conversation. So Brother Baba Budan or Market Lane Coffee – which one would be my choice of poison in… Continue reading Brother Baba Budan vs. Market Lane Coffee

Jinda Thai

The hint of Jinda Thai’s popularity was already¬†given¬†when I tried to call 2 days before to book a table. The staff who took my call said that they were ‘fully booked’ but ‘feel free to walk in’. I found that a little strange; I mean, how can you get a table if the restaurant is… Continue reading Jinda Thai

Nora

If I were to describe Nora in 1 word, it would be ‘abstract’. Nora is not quite your average¬†Melburnian cafe with poached eggs, smashed avocado, toast or usual espressos and let me show you why… This cafe first came on¬†my radar when Andrew chanced upon it while walking home from uni. He tried a coffee… Continue reading Nora

Taste of Melbourne

I am blessed with some really good friends – when Ms JQ won a pair of tickets to the Taste of Melbourne event, she promptly asked if I wanted to go with her. And of course I replied, ‘YES!’ We were also blessed with good weather when we got there. Earlier in the day, it… Continue reading Taste of Melbourne

As the title suggests, this time round, we hit up Brunswick, a hippy suburb known for their vintage shops and cool cafes. Two Little Pigs Charcuterie & Grind The main purpose… Continue reading Pigging Out at Brunswick

Cutler & Co.

Masterchef Australia viewers are no strangers to Andrew McConnell and local foodies would¬†be familiar with his restaurants in Melbourne. Despite the¬†hype around him and his restaurants, I have not really considered his restaurants,¬†after¬†reading mixed reviews and seeing the menu prices online – it all sounded a little risky! But then it happened that Ade finally¬†made… Continue reading Cutler & Co.

Clayton Eats

Clayton is one lively suburb – it has its share of supermarkets, Asian grocery shops, discount shops, fresh food shops and restaurants. And that I find makes it very liveable, especially for the student community that attend¬†the nearby Monash Uni. Lately, we have been frequenting there and it’s not just because of the food, but… Continue reading Clayton Eats
