Inspired Dining...

My name is Phuong, and I am a Masterchef addict. 

I know I am a bit late on this bandwagon but Junior Masterchef and the first season of Masterchef (USA) is only now being shown on tv over here.  I now understand why Masterchef was such a hit in Oz and why there were daily articles about it on

It's compelling viewing.  I am not sure why... maybe it's because you are seeing ordinary people doing some pretty awesome things that you could probably do yourself (if you really tried) and you can relate to it a bit better unlike other reality shows e.g. Big Brother or Biggest Loser .

Anyhow, the Mr and I are celebrating the one year anniversary of our engagement this Sunday so I only thought it fitting to book us into Pizzeria Mozza, a restaurant recently opened in Singapore by Masterchef US judge, Joe Bastianich, and celebrity chef, Mario Batali.   The two have opened a number of acclaimed restaurants in the US and Joe also owns a few wineries in Italy.  We are massive fans of pizza so very excited to try it out!

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
