Izakaya style fare at Musashi

June 12, 2009

I’m in the mood for Japanese and Musashi in Haymarket is on the cards for dinner. It’s an “izakaya-style” Japanese restaurant – “izakaya” being the name given to tradtional Japanese pub style restaurants and we’ve been before with fond memories of previous dining experiences.

Have you tried the Hainan chicken at Temasek?

April 22, 2009

Just back from 10 *hot* days in Southern Vietnam touring through Ho Chi Minh, Mekong Delta and Phu Quoc island. But that’s a massive task to curate photos and blog about immediately. Who would have thought I could possibly proscratinate when it comes to blogging too? So in true Queen Procrastination form, instead of posts […]
