Nunzio’s – May 2019 and other occasions

June 30, 2019

If you grew up or worked in Fremantle, you would know about Nunzio. My first memories of Nunzio was his very popular coffee establish on the corner of South Terrace and Collie Street in the heart of Fremantle 20+ years ago. This place seemed to be the hub of all the Freo community any time of the day from early morning to the early hours of the weekend. It was a constant hub of activity not only for coffee drinkers but a meeting place for all walks of life. Continue Reading…

Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Soup June 2019

June 16, 2019

In the process of making tomato bread, when squeezing the juice from the pulp to spread on the bread you are left with the glorious juice of the tomato which I usually use to make sugo or pasta sauce. This time, I did not want to make pasta sauce so I thought, since the weather has taken a turn to “cold”, I would make soup instead. Continue Reading…

European (short) Adventure – London, Madrid & Singapore April 2019

June 13, 2019

I caught wind mid last year that this year, you could take three days of annual leave and enjoy 10 days of break over the Easter and ANZAC public holiday period. So, it got me thinking, where can we go for 10 days?

I must first say that, this would have been an expensive trip if we did not have frequent flyer points to utilize so this is little adventure to Europe could only happen because of our bank of frequent flyer points.

Now where should we go….. Continue Reading…
