Creating a graphic novel but stopping along the way to take some photos, eat some food and admire great art!

Ryo’s Ramen – Crows Nest

Ryo’s Ramen situated in Crows Nest is one of the trinity of ramen shops in Sydney (which includes Genki in Artarmon & Menya in the CBD). Off the three places, Ryo’s is my favoruite with the queue to get in the only problem. The broth is absolutely fantastic and their ramen is easily the tastiest. […]

Char Kway Teow – Penang – Sister

As a follow to “What makes a good Char Kway Teow?”, I thought I’d show you what was considered by some as the best Char Kway Teow in Penang. It’s from a shop called Sister’s located on Macalister Road. I doubt you can find anything even remotely like it anywhere else in the world. Penang […]

Gyoza – Canon G11 – Photo

Been a while since the last food post and I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out my new Canon G11. Whilst not as sharp as a 40D SLR, it still can create some crisp images even in the below low light conditions with the aperture opened to 2.8. Anyway . . […]

Burlington Bar and Dining – Steak – Squid – Tiramisu

It’s a been a while since my last food post so I thought I’d slip one more in before 2010 rolls in. Nestled in Crows Nest is Burlington Bar and Dining which has some scrumptious food. I’d let the photos (taken by Toshio) do the talking. 1kg of Stockyard 36 month old, 200 day grain […]

Yum Cha – Zilver

It’s been a while since my last food related post. Thought I’d share some photos taken by Toshio at a recent yum cha (dim sum) in Sydney CBD at a restaurant called Zilver. Lotus Leaf Chicken Rice : Zha Liang : Siu Mai : Egg Tart : I really don’t know if explanations are warranted […]

Best Cheeseburger

I’ve talked about burgers before but I now have a favourite! It’s a local place which sells mini cheeseburgers (chilli optional extra but highly recommended) that’s a perfect snack. It’s not squashed like in fast food chains but stacked tall with a delectable beef patty.

Tea and Scones

Tea and scones are the perfect afternoon snack (or if you are Malaysia curry puffs are the go!) From a tea shop in Sydney CBD, this one’s a favourite secret spot of mine. Fresh scones with cream and strawberry jam : A good scone can’t be too dry and maintain a texture in between a […]

Ramen with pork spare rib

A very traditional ramen with thick broth served by an eatery in one of the food courts in Sydney CBD. The pork spare rib ramen is limited to 10 bowls a day so it’s something I had to try. Ramen with pork spare ribs : The broth was made using over 120kg of pork bones […]

Whopper – Hungry Jacks – Photography

Thought I’d enjoy a Whopper meal from Hungry Jacks as well as play around with the camera. I was trying to see how the camera’s Black & White turned out and a chance to see if I can get some nice contrast in those photos. The before shot : Close in shot of the whopper […]

A&W Onion Rings

So you have your root beer in a chilled glass mug. Why not add some hot onion rings to the mix? *drool* The perfect accompaniment.
