What's your favourite food at the Perth Royal Show?
The Merrywell has brought dude food to Crown Perth. It’s simultaneously comforting and indulgent: salty verging on over-seasoned, deep-fried and gloriously fatty, more suited to being eaten with fingers than cutlery. It’s a trendy pub with striking looks, plenty of dark timber and the warm glow of orange lamps. There are beers on tap, a…
We had a long weekend here in Western Australia in September. Jac went on a trip to Margaret River with her hockey team mates while I stayed home. I’m always quite happy to be home alone. I just do my own thing, usually spending most of the weekend sitting in my study at my computer, […]
Jac had a craving for pork ribs recently but didn’t have the time to make a marinade, so she just used a bottled smokey barbecue sauce instead, rubbing the pork ribs generously in the sauce before baking them in the oven with a few potatoes. We ate the potatoes with butter, salt and pepper. Jac […]

We all got together on Thursday last week after work for a Chap Goh Mei/belated family reunion dinner, to celebrate Chinese New Year. My cousin AM, her hubby C and little daughter E were at dinner […]
