“Gong hei fat choy” – Wishing you great happiness and prosperity. The Year of the Pig is upon us! Today, Chinese communities around the globe are celebrating Chinese New Year 2019, the most anticipated and most colourful festival also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival. This is a long celebration and this year it will last until the 19th of February, the end of the Spring Festival.

Bodacious Banksia Bistro

The current residential development along the Princes Highway from Wolli Creek and beyond in the southern suburbs of Sydney is making it the latest foodie destination with new shops, cafes and restaurants opening as well as creative makeovers of old favourites. It’s a brand new community which is rising up along the Highway that was once our own Auto-Alley.

Sculpture by the Sea 2018

There is still time left if you haven’t visited the Sculpture by the Sea 2018, it closes on the 4th of November. I usually visit this exhibition during the first week but the recent Sydney rain has been unforgiving. Thankfully this week, the sky cleared up and the sun came shone,  so it’s time to check it out!
