I Love Ducks..!

Photo by Thai peckNo, it’s not “Duck confit”. My dinner tonight is green vegetable and Tasmanian Double Brie, no cooking.

It’s far too hot in Melbourne to cook or to be outdoor today (32°C = 90°F). I stayed in and edited this short video of my recent time visiting Richmond in Tasmania, an island state of Australia to the south across Bass Strait.

I chose an aria from one of Handel’s oratorio that I loved, I know it is not everyone’s “cup of tea”… Well, you might enjoy it.

“Il trionfo del tempo…”

Exotic Foodie

Asian market found in a large Asian community 20 minutes away that took me to Asia without having to travel far. It’s a place that always busy any day of the year and restaurants; one after another serving traditional Asian cuisine from Vietnamese, Chinese to Cambodian and Laotian, each with its authentic specialty. One can have a feast here without having to pay an abominable price.

After lunch, my friend and I wandered about passing many fresh fruit and vegetable stores that full of mouth-watering herbs and the sweet aroma was so inviting, I thought of a dish that I would prepare for a summer lunch next: “Green mango salad with fresh succulent prawns”.

My iPhone was used for these snapshots to whet your appetite.
