"Food is essential to life, therefore make it GOOD".

I have a passion for all things food.  Mainly eating good food, but more importantly cooking, for my family, my friends and well anyone with a mouth and a stomach.  I love to use fresh quality ingredients and create dishes that are memorable and delicious.  My asian background has been the basis of my passion for authentic flavours that pack a punch and I guess that is my promise to you.

Yummy, delicious, want for more, flavoursome food - with an Asian twist.  My signature Satay Sauce is a good place to start, but there is so much more that I want to bring to the table.  Asian Fusion is the road we are travelling on here and I plan to take to you to Asia with every single bite.

Lets go on a cultural journey together, sampling the best Hawker food has to offer.  Lets Eat.

I hail from New Zealand, born from a Malaysian Chinese Mother and New Zealand Dad which explains my asian roots. I lived my entire youth in Army Bases before eventually moving to Australia and marrying my Military husband. I am first and foremost a mother to two gorgeous little girls, second a wife and third in charge of running our tight ship while my husband works away which is often.  I semi retired from full time work about two years ago to get more balance in our lives and like many mums out there, had to redefine my purpose. I needed to find a path that fulfilled my desire to be productive in a non corporate role.  I am so fortunate to be able to start my Food Journey as a home cook and fulfil a dream to start my own business... and the business of eating, sounds pretty good to me! I'm sure this is going to be a rollercoaster ride, so come and follow me on this journey while I learn, laugh, grow, cry, cook and eat!
