So here’s what’s been going on in my life.

Above: our haul from the Shillin Night markets in Taiwain. It was all crazy cheap. Plus – notice a colour theme?

Below: An amazing date-banana-tahini smoothie from Mana. I die.

Above: On a slightly more serious note I went with friends to visit an exhibit by the Society of Community Organisation about refugees in Hong Kong. It was really powerful.

Below: The Boy is OBSESSED with mint choc-chip ice-cream. And I’m on a dark chocolate kick.

Above: Blue Jasmine was finally released in HK, only like 6 months after the rest of the world. We saw it the day it opened. I’m a total Woody Allen groupie.

Below: A birthday present from friends. When you live in Asia even your socks have cute cartoons on them.

Above: A true but unfortunate but also hilariously named company.

Below: I’m getting really getting good at making Asian noodle soup at home. Keen for a recipe?

So I realise that basically all that’s going on in my life is food. But that’s a) not so surprising and b) delicious!

Anything more exciting than waffles going on in your world?

Sydney Siding

Finally I have returned to Batmania AKA Melbourne

Here is what I did in Sydney:

On Friday we (Boy + Me) went to an adorable place in “the spot” for coffee. I’m not sure whether I’m offended or amused by this little man in the cafe.

James Dean on a door in the cafe.


In the window of said cafe there were all these adorable antiques.

Obviously I loved the triumph book for girls!

On Saturday night we went to a Disney themed party.

You can see Esmeralda (of the Hunchback of Notre Dame fame) seated with Belle (obviously from Beauty and the Beast).

Sunday I went out for coffee with a lovely friend of mine. The cafe was covered with great photos from the owner’s travels. This one I really liked.

On Sunday we saw Beginners. Highly recommended. Adorable and funny.

But I’m still waiting for this one to come out in Australia… really, why is the southern hemisphere so behind on Woody Allen goodness?

This is the park nearby.

Seriously awesome right?

Lastly – This is the boy’s cat.

Super cute and very fat. She’s so old and has an awesome name – Mozart.

Very formidable.

There will probably be another post of Sydney.

But for now, this will have to suffice.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend as well!
