Life Turning Point and Living Minimalistically


Sunday is my bliss. When I reflect on the week that has been (indulge in Tim Tams sucked through a glass of milk) and ponder on the week that it will be. And what a week that was!!!

Living in the UK Tuesday: I picked up my passport with my new UK visa intact!! Yes peeps, I’m heading over to the isles on a 2 year long sojourn. This is what this blog has been building to be. A travel log and possibly a companion for when I am sooo far away from home! Queue the Kaiser Chief lyrics… “Oh My God I can’t believe it I’ve never been this far away from home” (or try this Lily Allen rendition).

Living Minimalistically WeekendThis is far easier said than done. How much STUFF do we accumulate? Really! I’ve spent the whole weekend just cleaning out stuff. I know it will be liberating when the process is finally over. In the mean time… late night of tidying up it is. I need to skinny down to nothing but about 30kg worth of luggage. Scary thought.

Living Locally Week: I read about these guys and this market at the Darlo Bar and decided to check it out. Have a look at the AMAZING produce I got! For $35, I got the single person sexy spinster hamper. It came in a cute calico bag and a pot of adorable pansies. All the produce are from within a 90km radius of Sydney so it’s super fresh! It has pushed me to be creative in the kitchen! Here’s my roasted vegetable couscous. I filled the kitchen with warmth on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Oh what a week! I can’t wait to tell you more and more about my moving out process! Peace out!


Antidotes to Sydney City Life – Juice, Cheese and Noodle Love




You know when you have those blah days and you dig into a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, family size no less, or start eating Nutella by the spoonful? No, not you? Well, nor I.

When I need a pick me up, I crave fresh juices. My favourite combination is pineapple and mint. Today I added beetroot too.

When work gets a bit blah I might indulge in a treat. Today I made myself an office size cheese platter. I had some gorgeous dolce gorgonzola with Maggie Beer quince paste.

When the weather gets a bit blah, I crave a warm supper. (What’s with the afternoon rain Sydney?) Today I made a simple bowl of warm noodles. Green tea soba, edamame, gently poached egg in a soya chicken broth. It takes about 15 minutes to makes and Tuesday dinner is done.

Now I have more time to be happy and blog on. All is well.
