Madam Woo

Asian fusion is by far one of my favourite types of cuisine. It cannot be denied that it is one of the most full-flavoured, experimental, exciting styles of food in the world that I have encountered. This particular form of cuisine is incredibly popular in New Zealand, namely Auckland, as there is a wide range of ethnicities inhabiting the city, and the surrounding suburbs. As … Continue reading Madam Woo

Passionfruit, Lemon & Ricotta Cupcakes

There comes a time in a period of dieting, when boredom and hunger overrules any desire for a bikini body. Then, one turns dreamily towards those gleaming kitchen utensils, the blocks of golden butter and jars of sugar, with only one thing on their mind and one word on their lips. Baking. Now, I tend to contradict myself a lot on the facts of my diet, … Continue reading Passionfruit, Lemon & Ricotta Cupcakes

Part Five: Lake Tekapo

New Zealand is the proud owner of many beautiful lakes, some with unfathomable depths and extraordinary diameters. Lake Tekapo covers an area of 83 square kilometres, which is relatively small in comparison with lakes such as Lake Taupo and Lake Wakatipu, but makes up for size in it’s beautiful crystal clear waters and stunning neighbouring landmarks.  Continue reading “Part Five: Lake Tekapo”

Part Four: Milford Sound

Reportedly coined as the “eighth wonder of the world”, Milford Sound is the full monty of scenic views. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most magnificent sights I have ever encountered in my life and words can’t really describe the sheer size and phenomenon that is really is. The day began with an early start, fortunately commencing at 8 rather than 6/6:30, which is when … Continue reading Part Four: Milford Sound

Part Three: Wanaka and Queenstown

Now for the biggest, busiest and most expensive part of the trip! Wanaka and Queenstown. The capitals of cool, both in temperature and style. Wanaka kind of reminds me of a baby Queenstown. Sitting right on the edge of Lake Wanaka, the hustle and bustle of the bars and restaurants, constantly brimming with customers, fills the air as passers-by admire the beautiful food. Both Emily and … Continue reading Part Three: Wanaka and Queenstown

Part Two: Franz Josef Glacier

When you read the word ‘glacier’…what comes to mind? Huge expanses of ice that sit just on the cusp of the earth itself? Or something a of a lesser scale, perhaps? Or do you have absolutely no idea? I ask this mainly because glaciers are quite underestimated in their monstrous magnificence, and I doubt that many people have ever come across many in their lifetime because they may … Continue reading Part Two: Franz Josef Glacier

Lemon Berry Swirl Mini Cheesecakes

Lemon berry swirl mini cheesecakes…what a mouthful! Now, I know that beginning this blog post with a pun may have been a bit of a cheesy decision…(haha sorry I couldn’t resist) as I always tend to get mixed reviews on my quite obviously terrible puns, but I had to coax you in somehow if somehow these beautifully aesthetically pleasing cheesecakes didn’t do the job. Sadly … Continue reading Lemon Berry Swirl Mini Cheesecakes

Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mask

My thought process with this post was that summer is coming up and I need my hair looking healthy and feeling great if I am going to be growing it out again. Also, Mum recently bought some more coconut oil which we haven’t had in the house for a while, so I took the opportunity to finally give my hair some much needed treatment. Coconut oil … Continue reading Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mask
