Ananas Bar & Brasserie, Sydney

You’d think after devouring all the amazing desserts at the Shangri-La Sweet Street event, we’d head home and just rest from dessert coma. Nope, we decided to make one last stop to Ananas Bar & Brasserie for their desserts.

We ordered the Snickers dessert as well as the eclairs trio.

Wedding Favours (Making Moulded Chocolates)

I had the honour of making the wedding favours of my boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding just a couple of weeks ago. I had to make about 270 of heart shaped moulded chocolates (2 for each guest). Although I have made hundreds of chocolates at home before, I am obviously still at the very beginning of my learning stage in regards to chocolates, therefore I am grateful for the opportunity given to me to make this (and ‘export’ them all the way to Shanghai too!)

There were ups and downs in the whole process. I was actually quite burnt out in the end due to the combination of chocolate making (cleaning up) and flying (and transit) and attending a wedding, I want to thank everyone (especially my boyfriend, friends and family) for putting up with my craziness throughout that period of time. Lesson learned: More planning for next time.

Life 101: Shanghai (Mobile Apps)

Note: I was there from Feb 2014 – Jul 2014 (5 months), and Shanghai is a constantly developing and changing metropolitan city, so some things may not be relevant by the time you get there.

If you’ve been following me in the past few months, you would know by now that I was living in Shanghai for a while. So I thought I’d start a general series on “Shanghai” to enable my readers to better prepare themselves for future trips to Shanghai or China!

In this post, I will talk about the most useful mobile phone Apps that I found while living in Shanghai. Please do note that there are pros and cons to each App but I will only focus on the usefulness of each App.

Bourke Street Bakery (Alexandria), Sydney

Hello everyone, sorry for the delayed posts. I’ve been quite busy with m “other” (real) life to have time to write about my #SydFoodAmazingRace!!!!

Next stop was the very famous Bourke Street Bakery that’s on everyone’s must try list. To be honest? It’ll not be on mine anymore. I like it, but not enough to travel that far.
