This is a story about the day I woke up at 7.00am for breakfast at 9.00am in the city and then went back home straight to snuggle up in bed. Was it a productive day? Not at all. But if you ask me if it was a good day, then yes it was.
For coffee lovers enthusiasts, the name Haven Tailoring Coffee Joyously is already inviting enough. Not only is your coffee tailored to your taste, it’s tailored joyously! 🙂 This spacious and well-lit cafe is located within metres of Central Station!! So what are you waiting for?
Visiting Paper PlaneCafe has been on my list for a while now – especially after all the hype it received last year! It’s always nice to see new trendy cafes popping up in the suburbs. No more hour-long bus rides to the CBD and surrounding suburbs for a nice cafe meal on the weekend.
Alright, I’ll save you all from the “finals suck” rant since I know 90% of you already know what I am talking about. As usual, sorry for disappearing on you guys – it’s been a hectic few months trying to juggle my hobbies, passion, work and uni and sadly, food blogging got put aside for a while. But here I am, back in the blogging game (with a new theme) and ready to feed you with some delicious photos and words!
Salvage Coffee is probably the best, if not, the most hip cafe in Artarmon! Their chalkboard menu might be small but every dish is on point.
Oh, how glad I am to be home today. The last two days put some serious strain on my muscles: fighting nature doesn’t really get you anywhere. I would start on one side of the walkway and be blown by the crazy wind to the other side! Nature, you win. Hopefully everyone will stay safe in the midst of this dreadful weather! While it’s not the ideal weather to go out for brunch, it’s never too early to plan, right? Here’s a place I would recommend for your next breakfast/lunch destination once the blue sky is back again.

Ahhhh… the colder seasons are upon us! Am I the only one excited about the decreasing temperatures? Yes, it is freezing and rain is evidently not Sydney Transport’s friend (no seriously, what’s with the delays?!) but Autumn is still wonderful. Coffee inevitably becomes more attractive and the delicious, hot broth my mum makes has a whole new purpose! It’s the season of comfort food.
When Joy from BrunchonJoy approached me to organise a brunch adventure, I was simultaneously scrolling through my Instagram feed, obsessively liking the photos from Kin by Us (particularly that congee!). Now I wanted comfort food and she wanted brunch… Kin by Us appeared on my feed at a good time and I knew it would be our next destination. Read More »
Confession time: I am a terrible food blogger (well, is that even surprising?). The fact that this wasn’t posted 2 days ago as planned, is evidence.
But seriously, I have so many awful habits that would get me disqualified if food blogging was a sport. Forgetting my SD card, not charging my battery or forgetting my DSLR altogether are just some of them. In sad times like these where I have no camera, I resort to my beloved phone.
Instagram is the platform I throw all my phone photos, filter the crap out of them and spam with #hashtags. Instagram posts takes 2 minutes while posts on this blog can take up to 2 hrs! Don’t blame me for being lazy, it’s just natural! Even though I slack off on Instagram, it deserves a little more attention because the food I mention there is seriously good! So for those who are missing out on my Instagram spam, I thought I could compile a list of the food highlights of last month (March) and share the deliciousness with you all.
While there’s a lot of reasons to go to Macquarie, the food isn’t really on my main agenda when I visit. Sure, they have Papparich, Chef’s Gallery, Snag Stand and even Ippudo is coming too, but they’re not food places unique to the centre. When my friend suggested going to The Missing Piece Cafe, I was happy to know that there’s a well established cafe located in the heart of the centre. Finally, a cafe worth going to Macquarie for!
Enjoy a short but nonetheless delicious review of The Missing Piece Cafe, located just outside of Uniqlo. Read More »
One thing I have noticed since I’ve started the design component of my course at UNSW Art & Design (previously COFA, but COFA is much easier to say), is that my awareness for the little things around me has grown. The textures of the buildings, the noise pollution of the city, the simple fact that I can feel the floor with my soles of my feet… Simply put, I have gone a little crazy. However, other than the fact that all this soul-searching is for an assignment, it’s interesting to see why things exist and how they contribute to our lives, even if it’s minor. Just like how each meal with your friends and family is a unique experience as you learn a little more about each other over delicious food. Yes, I am just trying to make excuses to eat more despite certain resource shortages (i.e. money and time). See how I am applying my first-week uni knowledge into my blogs now? I don’t just eat all the time, I swear I study.
As studious as I am (ha ha), there is nothing that will stop me from going on food adventures with my friends. Like, absolutely nothing. So when my friend urged that we go to Mrs P’s in Burwood after having a very positive experience on her last visit, I dropped my pen and textbook and went!
Just because I took the day off work because I am sick doesn’t mean I can’t write a blog post! Worked 6 days this week – I think I just had a clue of what it’s like to be a full-time working adult. Definitely a bit more physically challenging than being a full-time university student but hey, I’m enjoying it so far! I’ve always enjoyed working a lot more than studying – $$$ is motivating. Because with more money, means more food adventures! That being said, I guess I’ve been going on too many of these adventures since my bank account is looking a bit slim. Payday, why are you still a few days away?!
But let’s look back to a blissful time when Jenny still had money and entered this neat little cafe tucked away in the suburb of Parramatta, where she found one of her loves.
It’s been less than a week since my last update and SO much has changed! I am proud to say (for once) that I am finally enrolled in a degree I am genuinely excited about. I feel like I have hurdled over a few milestones within these few days: new degree, completing one successful drive without my mum screaming, cleaning my room and having the heart to throw away 50% of my crap, overcoming the painful pimple in my nose, building an alpaca nanoblock and (something a little more relevant) getting over 10,000 views on my little blog! To others, it’s a pretty small number; to me, it’s a huge milestone and a great source of motivation. So thank you to all of you who continue to support what I love doing (that is, writing essays about food over and over again, basically repeating the same thing with different synonyms provided kindly by Google) and the friends who always encourage me to do more. HOORAY FOR POSITIVITY!
Let’s keep that positive attitude for a little longer for this blog post about a small but impressive cafe, Element 6, located in the humble suburb, West Ryde. This place was actually chosen by a friend of mine – usually I love it when people choose restaurants for me, especially when it’s usually me doing the choosing (that’s what you get for being a food blogger, I guess). Actually, we came here because I lost a bet I though for sure I would win (and was so very wrong) and I had to shout him food. But hey – the food was good so I will just pretend I was just doing a good deed.
