  Just a general guess but a majority of you reading this would have ancestors who migrated from another country. Whether you are a second, third or even fourth generation of a convict, farmer or noble man; going to primary school was a cultural battle ground.  I am an Australian Born Chinese (or ABC as…

I think there can only be one word to describe my feelings that winter is coming to an end. Relief. If you have not heard of this year’s Winter in Australia; it has not been nice. It is really windy, cold and dry or wet, humid and yet still cold. As you can guess this…

Even though my twitter is for the purpose of reaching you my lovely readers, one thing which is getting my undies in a knot is the hash tag #icebucketchallenge. For those who have been living under a rock, the ice bucket challenge is a way of raising money and awareness of a motor neuron disease….

  How important is your status? If you mind immediately goes to FaceBook, you will be right! It must be a new thing but has your partner been notifying you about this? I am single but I hear you people in relationships have been bickering about this. It all starts with one question.  How do…

You know what today is not about me nor is really about the problems I have being cynical and too realistic about life.  Today this post is about my mum. Just last month my family celebrated the glorious woman that is my mother.  After losing my father a few months back, my mum really has…

  Sometimes I think we are the devil to our own demise. For anyone that has been lured in to the attractive commercials for exercise equipment, kitchen kit and other “make it easier” appliances you know about this. Manufactures of late night infomercial products have profited of our need to do everything in an easier…

I spent a long time on how to phrase this in order to not to offend anyone but I really could not find another word for it. What is your secret (often frowned upon) food cold sandwich mash up?  I am getting down to real basics. Think about the sandwiches you bought to primary school…

It is probably not surprising that I have fallen behind on post lately. A combination of the winter chillis, my lack lustre imagination and having the time to procrastinate (because, hey, it is mid term time in Australia). Thankfully the winds have picked up again (figuratively and literally) which has pushed me back in to…

  I know many of you are enjoying the summer weather over in Northern Hemisphere; however for those in South maybe you can relate to what I am feeling right now. The winter chili has really made me appreciate to slow down. Not just in terms of food and cooking (pot roast anyone?) but in…

  Confession: I hate Pinterest sometimes. Yep I said it. Honestly I would say I loathe it sometimes.  I appreciate the sharing abilities of the website but it has killed our self-esteem. My friends and family members love pinterest; you probably love pinterest too but I am slowly getting more annoyed by it.    As…
