Happiness Workshop Kikki K

What a great idea. Happiness Workshop! Recently I went into a Kikki K store which sells gorgeous stationery, and they were running workshops on Happiness. I thought this would be a great way for me to start the New Year. Not really knowing what to expect I signed up, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The best prawn noodle soup (har mee) in Sydney?

Lee's Malaysian
1a Hunter Street, Sydney.

With the wave of the food revolution, Masterchef, My Kitchen Rules hitting our shores, we are all becoming increasingly well versed on our culinary knowledge. "The Best in Sydney" is a common phrase I am seeing these days in good food guides. So this brings me to my discovery of possibly in my opinion the best har mee (prawn noodle soup) in Sydney.

Har Mee $9.50

Calories in chinese snacks

Did you know one piece of pork jerky (a singapore favourite called "bak kwa") is 370 calories! Oh my goodness, no wonder I've got belly bulge from all the snacks I ate. How well do you know your calories in your favourite chinese new year snacks? Pineapple tarts anyone?

BBQ Kitchen Eastwood

Shop 32/1 Lakeside Road, Eastwood, Sydney

Selection of BBQ Pork & Roasted Duck

BBQ meats. BBQ pork. Duck. Yum. Staples of chinese cuisine, it's my go to dish when I feel like eating something hearty, yet comforting and deeply satisfying. I remember growing up on these dishes when I was a child, and I still love them.

Little Project - Paper Hearts

Heart. I heart. Right now, I am having stationery love. All cute and pretty stationery. I came across this really easy do-it-yourself project on folding paper hearts. The great thing, it really works! All you need is some colourful paper, and you are all set to go.

Try it for yourself with Kikki K's easy to follow instructions. I made quite a few and decorated my instant photo album I've just started.
