This blog is about an Aussie who lived in Hong Kong but has since moved back to Canberra. Whilst in Hong Kong, I learnt Mandarin, Mahjong (Cantonese Style), Photography, Chinese Cooking and Chinese Knots. I hope to share some of my skills (mostly Chinese Cooking) with the Canberra foodie community. I will also include random favourites such as French macaroons and some oldies but goodies from my mum and nanna.
Born in Canberra in 1963 at the old Canberra Hospital I lived at Duntroon before moving to the new suburb of Pearce at the base of Mount Taylor where I grew up in the 60's and 70's. I am an amateur historian fascinated with the ACT regions history and heritage. This blog is a reminder of places I visit and things I research.
I'm in my 40's, living in beautiful sunny Canberra, Australia's capital city. Married, with 2 kids. Somewhat quirky, some would say black, sense of humour. Probably too much of a cynic, a bit of a sarcastic bastard. This blog is for my musings, rantings and ravings about any old crap that attracts my attention.
