The Food Diaries

Today, I am going to steer clear of my usual ramblings and discuss what I (and, you) LOVE the most - that is FOOD :) 

I like experiencing both new flavors and dishes. As an ex-pat baby, growing up in Hong Kong, I simply had no choice. By the age of three I was eating sashimi and using chopsticks like a local, so it is fair to say, I have a SERIOUS OBSESSION with Asian food/influences. 

I come from a Greek background, so my mother and grandmother can cook a lamb like no other, however, it is unusual to eat traditional Greek food in our home - we all prefer Thai/Chinese/Japanese. 

Here are a few of my favorite dishes from around the world..... Yum Yum!! 

Wafu Steak from Naked Japan, Albert Park

White chocolate and passion fruit cocktails from the Albert Park Hotel

Steamed Shanghai Dumplings & Chilli Wontons from Hu Tong Dumpling Bar, Prahran

Authentic 'Dim Sum' (not Yum Cha, like you Aussie's call it) at the Metropol, Admiralty in Hong Kong

Thai explosion! Drunken noodles and a lemon meringue cocktail at Cookie, Melbourne

The most delicate dessert, french vanilla cream/custard with pistachio nut wafers at the Hong Kong Cricket Club

Home made cupcakes from my darling friend, Rosa! 

Snapper infused with herbs and lemon... amen to Clamms, Albert Park

Pulled pork with spiced apple and coleslaw, from a cute little cafe in Kensington

Cookie AGAIN, shrimp cocktail and dumplings

The fish selection at Clamms, Albert Park

Last but not least, my mothers home cooking. Greek lamb (lemon and mint), with a medley of potatoes and green beans decorated with fetta! 

Okay, I think it's time for my lunch now!

November :)

Hello to ALL :)

I have been a terrible terrible blogger and have neglected my precious friend, however, I'm back! It has been a hectic few weeks in my incredibly small world. I had a wonderful friend, Christina, let us all into her car park for Derby Day at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It was put together beautifully, unfortunately, the weather did NOT cooperate. I was also lucky enough to help with the PR for the Park Hyatt Melbourne Cup 150 Years Brekky!! Here are a few photo's from both of the day! ENJOY xxx

Bikini vs. One Piece

Okay, so, admit-tingly, I would never DARE brave the hot summer's days in a bikini. They are just not for me - soooooo - when I find a one-piece (and I mean one-piece, not these skimpy little things with holes cut out) that fits and isn't daggy it is a MIRACLE! Alas, MOUILLE! My new favourite brand! These two just came in the mail and I am super super happy :) Just a tad excited for Summer now

Off to Sydney for SEXPO tomorrow!! Enjoy your week xxx
