After being in Melbourne especially I am now on a mission to learn more Japanese, Malaysian and Indonesian dishes let me know if you can any blogs to recommend or cook books :-)

  1. What an amazing trip you had. Welcome home!

  2. That sounds just like I would make it! Sometimes I like to add a bit of tahini to it (just because we like it like that). It's a lovely shot. Of course I would talk to Suresh with 3 Hungry Tummies for any info on the type of Asian cooking that you would like. You were lucky to meet up with him as well. I would love to come along for the ride. My daughter said she would love to live in Japan so she could eat sushi every day. She uses furikake sprinkled on her rice because it makes it taste like's too fishy for my husband :D
