My evening out in Footscray, exploring delicacies and finding new music makes me realise how grateful I am to live in this city. Something made me look back today, at a messier, more chaotic chapter in my life. It kicked me in the guts a bit, but then I realised, talking to a friend: what [...]

It is so nice to pour vodka soda and smooth electronica over my battered, aching soul. My job can be stressful sometimes and when I am firing on adrenaline for sometime, there is a come down from that. It leaves my soul in pieces, aching and tired and scattered all over. It is the sort [...]

It is a beautiful sunshiney Sunday morning and I am feeling so incredibly lucky! Grateful for the fact that my Saturday night was a very adventurous meal in the most amazing vegan restaurant.
