Mekong Baby, NZ

Auckland, New Zealand

It's been a while and things have been going a miss - lots of new eats, yet I haven't had the time to sit down and write about it for a few months. Mostly because new circumstances have come into light for life which has been made for the better! 

But here's Mekong Baby, an elegantly swish South Eastern Asian restaurant and bar from Ponsonby in Auckland, New Zealand. Serving up authentic yet modern Asian infused cuisine, this little gem of a restaurant has plenty of visually stunning and also tastebud pleasing bits and pieces to order off the menu.

Man O'War Tasting Room, NZ

Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Visiting Waiheke Island is probably an absolute must experience if you ever have the chance and time to travel to New Zealand. The beauty of this island just speaks for itself - rolling hills, beautiful shores - within just a simple ferry trip away from the Auckland city docks your taken to a magical isle. The attractions include retreats and resorts, wineries, pristine beach and coasts, art galleries or for the sporty types out there - how about a round of archery or horse back riding?

I'm not much for the outdoorsy and was quite happy to venture off the beaten track (literally, the uneven earthy road we drove on was so shaky we could feel the car vibrations) up and down hills towards the Man O'War Vineyards which is a winery rich in heritage dating back to 1769.

Mosaic Restaurant, NSW

@ The Westin Sydney Hotel

The Westin Sydney hotel is like a hidden gem within the hustle bustle of the Martin Place CBD area. You'd walk past that old GPO building from the outside and not realise that inside this exquisite exterior has a big hotel, restaurants and bars along with businesses and lovely boutiques to wander in.

We walk through the lobby to be welcomed by a clean, sleek and modern hotel feel which contrasts so distinctively against that old heritage side. It's all a buzz downstairs on a casual Sunday evening, the bar in the corner having most noise from people chit-chattering over their lavish drinks.

Strawberry Gardens, NZ

Phil Greig Strawberry Gardens
Auckland, New Zealand

Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Auckland, New Zealand for the second time within two years to visit my kiwi mates and to enjoy the Kiwi summer heat. One of the highlights was definitely going out one sunny day to the Phil Greig Strawberry Gardens to hand-pick our own strawberries (and much to my dismay; sun burn on my shoulders from it!)
