Discover more about your friends through fun interviews

Google “best interview questions” and invariably you will get a page of results relating to job interviews. Great if that’s what you’re looking for. Google “best interview questions for friends” and now we’re talking. The results are a little more relevant and exciting for my purpose. What’s my purpose you ask? Interviewing my friends, obviously, and the random, interesting people I meet. I am a firm believer of everyone has a story to share. So in this spirit I have set out to interview all my friends. Why I want to interview my friends… The idea actually started in a […]

The Light side of Bipolar – Stand up and Laugh with me

The perfectionist in me really resists blogging spontaneously. I have this grand idea in my head that it needs to be well thought out and planned and that simply writing because the moment calls for it, isn’t the best way to do things. To go against my usual ways, I am now posting it moments before I am stepping out to have a food feast (chili fish if you are wondering). This is a breakthrough for me, not only am I able to write now to you all, I am also able to focus on stringing a sentence together while […]

My Weekday Pie Zentangle

I have discovered Zentangle. The Zen art of doodling. When I see a blank piece of paper, I am compelled to pick up a pen. The beauty of Zentangle is the white space is only 8.9 x 8.9 cm (79.21cm²) or in my case a generous 10 x 10cm, I homemade some tiles. Admittedly, as an artist, doodling is one of my talents, however I still found the process of the Zentangle satisfying. In it’s essence, it’s not anything new, but it does enable everyone to experience the joy of doodling. Part of my work involves facilitating activities, a favourite activity […]

Food, Glorious Food, Hot Sausage and Chopra?

Since the beginning, food has always been around, literally. Food has been a big part of my life. Let me explain that, I am someone who would learn photography just to take glorious photos of food. While I love food, I tend not to turn to food for comfort. Food does have links to my positive emotions; happiness and fun come to mind. Since getting my eBook reader, I have really taken on board reading as I am very digital at heart. So onto the book review: What are you hungry for? When I started reading the book the first […]

Decluttering and Discarding is an Art Form

My initial impression of the book, “the life-changing magic of tidying up”, was already quite positive. Usually when dealing with books I like to take time to hold and feel the pages, since this was an eBook, all I could do was hold my tablet and examine the cover image. I loved the simplicity of the cover and felt that if the eBook followed in a similar fashion I would also love the book. The first thing I noticed was the impressive promise made by this digital delight, namely the words “life-changing magic”. Who doesn’t love magic, especially when it […]

Brunch at Cornersmith and Spontaneous Art

What better way to celebrate a friend’s belated birthday than with fresh, delicious produce? Here we come Cornersmith. I found out about this cafe on one of my usual “best [insert meal or cuisine]” Google hunts. It took about 15 minutes to hustle up a table for 6, which turned out perfect as there was a delay due to a miscommunication between us about the number of the shop, it’s 314 Illawarra Rd, Marrickville, 2204. It took me a while to work out the menu, but as soon as I it didn’t take long for me to make my choice.
