December is a big month of parties and family catch ups, the silly season where we go on big shopping sprees, negotiate jostling crowds and chaotic traffic for those tempting end of year sales and holiday breaks. It also marks the end of the school term, and what better way to get your kids in the holiday spirit than going to catch one of the big blockbuster movie releases on Boxing Day onwards. If you’re looking for something new, indulgent and delicious to go with the movie, check out these new sundae flavours at a cinema near you.
The historic and charming narrow sandstone-lined Nurses Walk in The Rocks is buzzing right now with the opening of Tayim, a new restaurant offering modern and traditional Middle Eastern fare. We had the opportunity to attend the media launch party of Tayim last week.
A few years ago when Boodle Feast posts exploded on Instagram, I felt I was left out, none of the Sydney Filipino restaurants that I know offered this type of dining.

It’s almost the beginning of summer and for most of us that means getting outside and enjoying the longer and warmer days.

Sandwiched between the iconic Luna Park and the Harbour Bridge, Ripples Milsons Point offers excellent views of Sydney’s landmarks and breathtaking water views of the harbour. Dining here isn’t just about eating, it’s also a feast for the eyes. I’ve visited this restaurant twice in the last two months celebrating a lunch time birthday party, it seems a popular choice amongst my circle of friends. During both occasions, the restaurant was covered with clear vinyl plastic panels, a protection from those wintery cold winds. It’ll be nice to go back this summer when there’s no covering for an uninterrupted view of the harbour and beyond.
