Moochi: It's a Phenomenon, It's an Obsession.

Absolutely PERFECT on that hot hot HOT day.
Frozen yogurt makes me go weak at the knees. Not kidding. While I was living in the Philippines, I was hooked on Red Mango, it was trip after trip after trip. My friends and I would each order the biggest size just to ourselves. Believe it. Anyway, my friends introduced me to Moochi and oh boy an introduction it was. I'd say they've got the best frozen yogurt that I've had so far. Love it!

Napoli in Bocca, Haberfield

It's no secret at all that Italian food is my absoute favorite. I'm always up for it whenever, but definitely not wherever though. I tend to be really picky when it comes to that. The best go-to places for Italian feasts are Leichhardt and Haberfield, I believe.

So one evening the fam headed down to Haberfield. My first time btw. Left and right there were a lot of Italians chatting and having dinner. That was obviously a good sign! My uncle had been to Napoli in Bocca before and he claims that it's fantastic. And he has high standards! Got me sooooo excited. Just as we stepped in the restaurant, it was heading into what I would picture as a traditional Italian trattoria- huge wood-fire oven and the works. Some of the people there reminded me of the folks on Jersey Shore. hahahaha.

True Prep's Post Hangover Cure

No, I didn't go on a drinking spree last night and resort to a hangover cure made out of egg and cheese – my sister and I just wanted to give this recipe I found a shot because we both love breakfasts and we both love eggs (should you care, we eat at least two eggs a day, everyday).

The recipe is from this book I've been reading: True Prep by Lisa Birnbach with someone-someone, I can't remember.

It was an impulse buy and definitely one of my better ones. This is the cover (sans jacket):

Alfalfa House, Enmore

Back to blogging!

It's been an insane few weeks, obviously the reason why I haven't been around.

Anyway, me and my friends were out and about sourcing things for our project. 

Then we got off on the wrong stop, and stumbled upon this charming food coop.

Absolutely love how the paint is faded and looking really rustic.

Inside the tiny coop shop.
The sign out the back looks really hippie.

They've got locally sourced organic veg.
They were LOCAL, SEASONAL produce which is what we really should be eating.

Italianni's, Eastwood

I know that the Italianni's franchise has been in Manila for such a long time but I only got to try it a few weeks ago. My mom had always said that it was overpriced and not delicious, but on a short beach trip with friends, someone tossed up the Sicilian salad (will tell you more about this later) and I just fell absolutely in love with it. So I just had to bring my mom and sister to Italianni's, to let them experience said salad.

To begin: thick, crusty, white bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar

My sister's curry rice

Remember how I said that sometimes we don't have any groceries? Well, necessity is definitely the mother of invention: my sister cooked/created/cookS (in the present tense) this curry rice. It's just brown rice, Japanese curry, organic eggs, and any sort of Spam. Tasty, quick, and always available.

And here is a photo that does not have anything to do with food blogging, but I love it and want to share it:

After years and years of wanting to change the way I look, complaining about looking like this or that, I am finally learning that we're all beautiful and gorgeous and NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON is ugly, or needs to diet, or needs a nose job, or should get implants or whatever. We were ALL fearfully and wonderfully made!

Hope you're all doing great!

All my love

P.S. Really sorry for not having posted in such a long time! Next week is Finals Week.

At Adara's.

We've been hanging around at Adara's place a LOT.

And lately it's been pretty much every Sunday- doing group work.

We turn up there, just bum and chill for a bit then we TRY very hard to get work started and done.

While working, we're usually thinking about what we're having for lunch.

Seriously, that's how we roll. 
What better way to kick start mornings, yeah?
Workshop Espresso is the bomb. Or at least for now.

Boost for brunch.
Went for the carrot-celery-ginger juice that day.
Usually I'm a sucker for brekkie to go.

SPRING PICNIC at Centennial Park.

(woo yeah, time for oktoberfest! haha.)

Anyway, this was a month or so ago, my friends and I were totally welcoming/feeling SPRING.

Nothing says SPRING like a picnic.

And so we held one at Centennial Park. 

It was a beautiful day.
A tad windy for my taste though.

We hung around there until sunset.

And saw some beautiful swans.
