Amazing Food of East and West

    Hi All, I can’t believe that the summer is over, for those who live in Australia, that is.  And I must say it was the worst summer weather ever, I am not one bit upset that it is finished.  So I’ve decided to mark this small event with a big celebration and what is the pinnacle of every successful celebration – food of course!  But not in a conventional way by sharing recipes and images of the dishes cooked and served at one or the other food establishments or home.  No, I wanted to do something different and so I’ve opted to follow the pattern of the last few posts and share with you more!!! images from...

What I wore – Cargo Pants

Despite it officially being “summer”, the temperature in has been Sydney fluctuating dramatically between 30C and 21C, often in one day! Today was one of those days where you congratulate yourself for not storing away your trans-seasonal clothes.
