Nonna Maria's Place, NSW


The nights have turned so cold lately, so it was warming to take refuge on a cool evening at Nonna Maria's Place at 56 Phillip Street in Parramatta that one time ( the rare full moon) that I decide to venture forth to try someplace new out of my usual city locations.

Old school, traditional and home-made authentic Italian cuisine is what comes to mind once you find yourself seated inside Nonna's, a welcoming quaint little place with red and white checkered cloth tables, old Italian wine bottle candle sticks whilst serving up home style meals that just makes it feel even more like something Nonna would make for you.

Aqua S Ice Cream Parlour, NSW


Lately I've been accumulating a Aqua S habit - especially when i'm walking in Town and happen to know I can stop by Regent Place along George Street to have a sneek-peak and potentially buy their latest flavour creation.

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.
