My name is Joyce, author of Eat What Tonight. Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
I am feeling so excited ! Counting down to tonight’s flight to aussie for the third time in my life. Too bad the currency exchange rate is quite bad now, if not I think I will sure punch in a whole lot of macademia nuts to be brought back for my bakes. I love macademia nuts, and I think they are much cheaper from aussie. This trip has been postponed once due to HB’s work commitments. So finally here it is ! A very long wait indeed, for like half a year. My big toe is still in a slight bandage due to the previous injury, so I have to avoid all water sports for the time being. What a pity, for Surfers Paradise is all about that. I will try and source for baking stuffs there. The last time I brought back a muffin tray, a size which I can’t find here. Oh and not forgetting the duty free alcohols at the airport for the cakes. I can’t resist buying anything for my bakes, but I really doubt whether I have the time to consume them. Hahaha. I still have alot of malibu rum, grand marnier, brandy, etc in the cupboard which I only use once or twice.
Aussie food are generally nice but too much of it are really fattening ! So I guess I got to starve myself now… Hmm… is it abit too late ? They don’t have sambal chilli. They don’t have spicy food. I will miss that. And even spicy cup noodles are expensive there. Ok, my next trip shall be somewhere where things are really cheap ! Maybe china or thailand.
