Media: Maylands Market

A few weeks ago, a photo I took at the Maylands Market was featured in the West Australian newspaper.

You can read about my visit to the Maylands Hawkers Markets and see more foodie photos here.

Coreanos, Apgujeong Rodeo (Seoul)


After a particularly stressful morning in Seoul, my friend Steph took me to one of her favourite restaurants, Coreanos in Apgujeong Rodeo. She had mentioned how good it was a few times but I wasn't convinced. I'd had Mexican Korean fusion before in Perth and hadn't thought too much of it. It turns out Steph was right... the food was phenomenal! In fact, my visit to Coreanos was one of my favourite meals in Korea.

Campuhan Ridge Walk & Naughty Nuri's, Ubud Bali

Having been to Bali more times than I can count on my fingers, we're always looking for fun and different things to do. Believe it or not, there's only so much lounging by the pool and massages one gal can take! ;)

We found the Campuhan Ridge Walk via Mr Google. It was described as an easy 1-2 hour hike that was suitable for beginners. I was travelling with my 60-something year old Mum and Dad so it sounded ideal.

C Restaurant, Perth CBD

When a beloved colleague announced she was leaving us and heading out into the big bad world, our Office Manager decided that we needed to go somewhere special to bid her farewell. The special place she chose was C Restaurant.

C Restaurant is Perth's only revolving restaurant and sits on the 33rd floor of St Martins Tower. I had never been or heard a lot of feedback about C but knew it was pretty fancy. You know, the kind of place you'd go to for an anniversary, special birthday or to propose. I was stoked to be going there for a work-do where I wouldn't have to foot the bill.

Sugar & Nice, Inglewood

My Mum and I popped into' new kid on the block', Sugar & Nice on the way home from the Vic Park Farmers Market and Taste of Sri Lanka Food Fair over the weekend. 

I was surprised that Mum suggested Sugar & Nice as we were in Vic Park (nowhere near Inglewood) and have an abundance of lovely little cafes in Maylands that we usually frequent. I wasn't disappointed to visit though because since I first read about Sugar & Nice on Pantry in Suburbia's Facebook page, I had wanted to check it out.

Hangout Bar n Cafe, Como

I've been trying to hangout at The Hangout for years but everytime we go (even though Urbanspoon says they're open), they're either closed or closing. I finally got there one sunny winter day in July with my friend Pen before a visit to the Cygnet Cinema to see Jersey Boys. 

Raffles Hotel, Applecross

Visiting the Raffles ticked off #9 on my list of AHAWA Winners from 2013. Late last year, I set myself the challenge of visiting all 31 winners. It is now July and with three months to go, it has become very evident to me that I'm not going to be able to do that (nor do I want to anymore).

The Raffles won an award for Best Retail Bottleshop. In hindsight, I should've just visited the bottleshop because my visit to the bar left me disappointed and feeling ripped off.
