Before all hell broke loose and there wasn’t much talk about Covid-19, we went to Sydney. We had hoped to catch the Penn & Teller show at the Sydney Opera House but they canceled for medical reason. We still went and had a fantastic time. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and spend […]
A part of me would like to say that I was partying the night away dressed in a slinky cowl neck midi dress with matching heels when the clock struck 12AM ringing in 2017 but no, I wasn’t. I was asleep. MJ had stayed awake with the guise that he was so cool he was going to […]
If you remember, one of the first times I went to Melbourne, I didn’t like it. I thought it was crowded and lacked a variety of food. I still think it’s very crowded and a lot of people spend more time looking down at their phones rather than looking at where they’re walking. Some people […]
So just yesterday I discovered that corn meal is actually called polenta in Australia – nearly 7 years after moving here. Oh and by the way cilantro is called coriander here – that one only took me 6 months to figure out, cause you know, there isn’t something at my fingertips in which I can […]
Last year, we did a tradition Thanksgiving feast. This year I was very busy to even think about the holiday until the day of so we improvised with whatever we had in the fridge, freezer, and pantry.

I can say that my taste buds have changed since I’ve been here but I have yet to acquire the taste for any of the shown products!
Today is the Queen’s Birthday (or rather the observance of it). I didn’t work and most businesses are shut except for major stores like Target and Kmart and the cinema and other places like McDonalds, KFC, and Hungry Jacks, just to name some. Anyway for dinner we decided to go to a chain pizza place. […]
I came across a website where you can buy some Mexican food staples in Australia. While some of the items I was familiar with, it still wasn’t the same products I cooked with in NJ. I decided to do another search (one that I did countless of times when I first moved here): Puerto Rican […]
Got an order of our favorite American goodies, including Snapple. First Snapple in at least 4 years. I think I had an orgasm!
