Eat in the street! Let’s make it pozible.

One of my favourite things about Asia is the food.
And anyone who has spent any time there will know the best place to eat – is on the street.
The pozibility of bringing this phenomena to Australia is pretty exciting.
When I first heard of the Street Food Australia (SFA) campaign, I immediately loved it . This social enterprise group have the aim to give less well-off migrants living in OZ  the opportunity to start up their own food business. Giving people the chance to bring their cultural cooking skills to the …

Who ya gonna call? – TOADBUSTERS!

Becoming a yes man/woman is part of a series of posts that will take a look at some of the things that we have said ‘YES’ to that we would normally have said ‘NO’.
There aren’t many ghosts floating around Kununurra but you can be guaranteed to see a few cane toads knocking about that’s for sure.
With these creatures spreading over the Northern Territory into Western Australia like wildfire, someone had to step up to the plate and try to fix the problem.
Cue the Kimberley Toadbusters – a group of volunteers who venture out …

Photo of the Week: Outback Sunset

During my time working in regional Western Australia I was lucky enough to be treated to this sunset on a daily basis. I never got bored of leaving work each evening and being treated to the above sunset. The perfect way to end the working day.

Great Barrier Reef Photo Blog

Diving the Great Barrier Reef is high on many lists of must do things before you die. It was also high on my own personal list of must do things. Upon arriving in Cairns, I was quick to scout around all the dive shops to suss out the best trips. There were plenty of trips on offer for all budgets, but one trip in particular caught my eye.

An attack of the reverse culture shock

When we first set out on our trip, I was looking forward to having my first real culture shock.  To a certain extent, our first stop Hong Kong was our first experience, mainly with the food.

The Secret Diary of a Call (Centre) Girl

Ok so my job might not be as exciting as the TV show title it rips off but it’s worth a mention on this blog.
Yes it’s a secret that I’m blogging while I’m in work…but to be honest I don’t think it’s that big of a deal really. That’s where working attitudes differ between Australia and the UK.
I’m no Belle deJour but I have been working in a call centre for a financial company for 6 weeks now. It was tough getting back into the routine of working life…especially after a month of thai partying …
