    First thing Friday morning I am happy. I am happy to go to work because I know that the weekend is just peaking around the corner and Pizzaboy and I are going out for our ritual Friday night dinner… or as one of my workmates likes to call it: Friday Night, Date Night. Nothing makes me happier than to leave work right on the dot and head to wherever Pizzaboy and I have planned to dine at… with perhaps a little bit of comic book and cookbook shopping in between. Pizzaboy and I find ourselves on Church St in Parramatta. There is endless variety of restaurants packed between Phillip St and the river. We are undecided as to where we would like to dine at and we walk up and down that…

    It’s a Friday night and two days before Pizzaboy’s birthday. We always eat out on Friday evenings, it’s our favourite method of winding down from our mundane 9to5 jobs. “It’s my birthday weekend, does that mean I can choose where we eat tonight?” “Ok, but it has to be somewhere I haven’t blogged.” “That’s not fair. I guess Menya is out of the question?” “We’ve been to Menya 5 times since I blogged about it, choose somewhere different.” “Ichi Ban Boshi?” “Ok!” Two thumbs up. Ichi Ban Boshi was our favourite Friday night haunt before we discovered Menya. It’s located next…

    Wagaya – Modern Japanese Izakaya

    I am part of a food-obsessed family. My father is a former Yum Cha Chef. My mother is an amazing home cook. All my sisters and I think nothing of opening the fridge at midnight to fry up a meal from scratch. We do not hesitate spending an entire day making dumplings in the kitchen. When I decided to start a food blog, it seemed like I had just announced I was slicing an apple. Gastronmic connoisseurs? Nope, we are foodlovers. We travel far and wide looking for a great bowl of noodles, we pay no attention to the time of day when we are hungry, we bicker about who-ate-what and didn’t share it, we gossip about who-went-where and didn’t get to go, we fly across the world just to eat…

    Chat Thai – Street Food in a Little Shop

    “Amy, where are you going to eat this Friday?” “Dunno… you wanna come?” “Yeah. Do I have to pay?” “Errr. I have a bottomless stomach. Not a bottomless wallet!” Bunnifar is my younger sister, by nine years. I hate to admit that she has me wrapped around her little finger. I cannot bear to see her sad, and will do anything to see her happy. Spoilt, she is not. Well looked after by 5 big sisters, yes she is. When she doesn’t get what she wants from one sister, she moves on to the next. Sometimes she’ll get what she wants, five times over! All of this done with the innocence of a youngest sister, despite being 21 years of…
