Australia Temperate Zone: veggie planting calendar [free download]

I’ve learnt a lot over the years in the garden through trial and error and of course by lots of research with the myriad of resources out there. There are other planting calendars already available but I found that none of them had exactly the information that I was looking for in one place –Continue reading “Australia Temperate Zone: veggie planting calendar [free download]”

Vegan starter kit

I’m prefacing this post by saying I know that I have been so incredibly slack in updating my blog – so many things have been happening in life over the last year or so and I just haven’t begun to think about where I start posting about everything that life has had to offer. IContinue reading “Vegan starter kit”

Happy Earth Day

I tend to be perpetually frustrated these days about the seemingly growing misunderstanding (or ill-concern) for the importance of protecting our planet. Forest, oceans, species and natural havens are literally disappearing at an alarming rate. Equipped with more knowledge and technology than ever before, now is the time that we should be collectively changing ourContinue reading “Happy Earth Day”

Know the facts + veggie steamed buns

Below is a rant. If you’re not interested in reading it then just ogle over the delicious dinner I cooked instead. Jamie Oliver’s veggie steamed buns with a few extra ingredients and steamed asian greens. There’s four types of mushrooms in there! ~~~~~ I’m a fairly relaxed vegan in terms of agenda-pushing. If someone asks me aContinue reading “Know the facts + veggie steamed buns”

There’s a constant dichotomy inside my head in trying to balance what is comfortable and what is right and I’m yet to find the centre. I feel foreverContinue reading “Hieroglyphic Stairway”

Peace, love and broccoli.

I find it bemusing that I’ve had a few weirdly aggressive comments from various people since becoming vegan, so I’m setting the record straight. I decided to transition to a vegan lifestyle because I believe I can live a normal life without being dependent on other animal species to survive. Living a nourished and happyContinue reading “Peace, love and broccoli.”

The Life Creative Blog

Chris over at TheLifeCreative has featured my apartment in his weekly Real Rooms segment, including some of the photos I posted last week and a lovely write up of his flattering interpretation of my eclectic tastes. “I love an all-stops train to Quirks-ville” – This should be on my new business cards I think! Hehehe.Continue reading “The Life Creative Blog”

New Years Resolution 2012

I generally don’t make, or keep, New Years resolutions, so this year I decided to do something a little more achievable and a lot more fun. My New Years resolution was to write down all the good things that happen in my life so that at the eve of 2014 I can reflect on aContinue reading “New Years Resolution 2012”
