End of an Era…soon

Today marks exactly 1 year since Mick and I embarked on this journey to Cambodia. Its been one whole year!?! EEEK! It sure doesn’t feel like it! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were living in our apartment in Camperdown, working in the city, spending our weekends with friends and family, exploring […]

Recipe: Stuffed Squid

One of the excellent things about being in Cambodia and living opposite a local market is the access to super fresh food every day. On any day I can wander across the road in the morning, collect any ingredients I might want for the day or evening meal, hand over a small amount of cash […]

Breakfast Pork & Rice

Living in Asia definitely takes some getting used to and for some, its not as easy to get used to certain aspects such as street pissing, sugary bread, offal in soup. Breakfast is probably the hardest meal to adapt to, with many people struggling to down a plate of fried rice or noodle soup first […]

One Day in Singapore

Mick and I recently headed back to Australia to visit friends and family, but more importantly to be part of the wedding celebrations for my sister (Yay! Pip! Yay Danny!). We had a really great time back in Australia, seeing friends, eating delicious lamb, napping in comfy beds, hanging out with Mum’s, spending time at […]

Long Weekend Jaunt in Vietnam

Long weekends are something Cambodian’s get to celebrate quite often. There are days off for any number of religious, political or social reasons, and as an expat here it can be a great opportunity to go visit neighbouring countries like Vietnam or Thailand without using your annual leave. For one particular long weekend here, Pchum […]

Ten Things

Its been 6 months since Mick and I first moved to Cambodia and started working here and what a fun adventure it has been. There’s been torrential rain, protests, armed police wandering the streets, amazing food, kittens, exploring, bike rides, visitors and more. We have had challenges in our jobs, and achievements too. There’s been […]

Recipe: Stove-Top Rice Flour Pizza

I recently posted this on our friend, Jimmy (from Jimmy Eats World) blog to help enlighten his peeps to the challenges of cooking in Asia, and the awesome food adventures you can have.  Stove-top, rice flour pizza is amazing…but what do you think?? Cooking dinner at home here in Phnom Penh is limited to what […]

3 Months!

Three months….yikes! It’s hard to believe that it has been 3 months already! It seems like just a short time ago that we were frantically throwing our things into boxes, eating final meals of Aussie sausages and lamb roasts and drinking the last coopers beers before getting on the plane. And yet it also seems […]

Noodles, yum noodles! There are many great places to eat in Phnom Penh serving everything from up-market Asian fusion to hearty German dishes to spicy Thai and of course all the Khmer food. But sometimes you find a spot that just serves exactly what you are craving. Mick and I believe that this shop has […]

Review: Dessert Lady on St. 9

We are lucky enough to live very close to a dessert lady who offers a number of tantalising sweeties for those nights when grilled chicken doesn’t cut the mustard. She has a limited but popular supply of desserts ranging from bowls of sticky tapioca with banana or pumpkin, mung bean custard, baked egg custard, coconut […]
