#shananddennis wedding

The story all began on 25 October 2008. After 6 years, DC finally popped the question after following the bread crumbs at Sculptures by the Sea on 25 October 2014. We celebrated our engagement with our closets friends and family 6 months after and finally, on 20 March 2016, DC and I finally made it official!

Uluru Ayers Rock, Northern Territory (Part 1)

So one of the most "random" places I have ever been to has got to be Uluru, aka the red desert smack bang in the middle of Australia. In saying that, after being there, I would definitely say it is a must-visit during your lifetime, especially as an Aussie. Although you may think it is just a couple of large rocks, it is pretty different unique and even more of a must-go if you are into hiking.

Shifen and Jiufen, Taiwan (Part 4)

When one visits Taiwan, one must visit Shifen and Jiufen. Two places that one can never forget. Light up an old school lantern in one hand and take a trip down memory lane to Spirited Away on the other hand. 

Way too excited...

Up up andddd away

Sydney to Wollongong (Hungry Wolf Kitchen)

I heart road trips, even if it means just driving for an hour or two to get out of Sydney for a quick break from all the hustle and bustle in our lives. Mostly because the opportunity to do so is rare. Anyways, so after hibernating in all my books, a short road trip was well beyond overdue and was decided that DC and I should road trip it down to Wollongong.

We left a bit after 10.30 in the morning, cruised along the M4 followed by the M1 and arrived in the city centre of the Gong at around midday. Needless to say that by the time we arrived, we were hungry and had to fuel up.

Mala Spicy Hot Pot - Ximending, Taiwan

Oh hey there stranger, it has certainly been a while. Apologies for the absence over the past few months but I do hope to be back for good. I know I said that a couple of times in the past but I really mean it this time, I swear! Anyways, during this period of time I have given some thought and have officially decided to shift the focus of this blog to eateries outside of Sydney, plus interstate and overseas locations. But don't worry Sydney siders, there will still be a few Sydney cafes and restaurants popping up here. 

So given the freezing temperatures these days, I thought it would be best to kick off today's post about hot pot. I am a sucker for hot pot all year round but my appetite for hot pot seems to double during winter. Who else has this problem? If you are ever in Taiwan then I would highly highly highly recommend Mala Spicy Hot Pot
