Never grew with the knowing the traditions behind Chinese New year ot Tet as the Vietnamese call it.  Still I'd eat my way through the street stalls.

Spent the whole night looking for Brandy snaps,
used to eat them as a kid at the Mt.Gambier show.

One night in Dandenong, at a small Burundian community gathering, I was given a lovely surprise, a beef Kebab, perfect for a cold autumn night

Decided to reactivate this blog
A catch up my travels
my last blog effort was about living in the motherland back in 2007

Since then I've visited to Korea to interview some KADs for my thesis in 2008... I believe.

This time the blog is about what comforts me culturally and stirs my emotions politically

"Zhang brings a most particular sangfroid to the role of Empress Wan, a young and beautiful woman whose skill with a sword is legendary in the nation."
