Of all the things I like best, sandwiches from TOFWD tops them all! Those lush, lovely, crumbly pieces of heaven are a joy to vegetarians and a great lunch time snack.
Now I’ve tasted these creations of bliss. I’ve given up on vegemite and cheese sandwiches and asked Mum to put these in my lunch box! They’re really nice!
I shall now put these on STAR-FOOD OF THE WEEK! For these are the best, the funnest, the snackiest sandwiches from TOFWD.
We recommend the hummus and salad number. Yum!
Have you ever sat inside your bedroom wishing there was a fun, playful and secret place you could escape to without having to do any household work or duties?
Tokuya is for you!
Packed full of fun Japanese toys, school accessories and cooking gear, it’s suprising how all the fun fits into one smallish Japanese basement shop!
My favourite section is probably the school section, because it has all the cool stuff for swapping at school! Check out the grape smelling pencil grips and the floppy rulers! But that’s not all … tucked deep away lurks the ninja stuff. Boys will go wild (and so will girls!). I got myself a ninja mask which has some cool silver studs.
While I took at look at the kiddies stuff, Mum took a peek at the kitchen utensils. She found some crazy animal head toothpicks and some sushi makers for home!
Truly, the fun never ends! I highly recommend Tokuya!

On the weekend I went to check out the Tim Burton exhibition at ACMI. It was brilliant!
Tim Burton is an amazing man
Intellecting with art, entwining his thoughts
Making monsters that almost come to life on paper
Backslides his movies into darkness
Ubiquitous in his thoughts and feelings
Remedying horror, putting it right
Tim is the ultimate hero of horror
Observes the way monsters move
Nameless admiration I have for Tim!
Tim Burton Exhibition
Federation Square Melbourne
On until Sunday 10th October
I went to a wonderful family party on the weekend – lots of my cousins were there for lunch! There were heaps of vegetarian options there, but if it hadn’t have been for Aunty Gill, there would have been far less. First Aunty Gill made a lovely soup – sweet potato – and it tasted lovely. It was creamy pure and it left a sweet after taste in my mouth. She also made a delectable spanakopita – a Greek pie filled with fetta and spinach – it was wonderful!
Thank you to my beloved Aunty Gill – HIP HIP YAHOO!
Just click on your favourite food heading to see the delicious food my Grandma and Grandpa served up when I was at their place for a weekend sleepover!
This lovely mix of oats, milk and honey is so delectable! It is creamy, pure and is filled with all sorts of sugary goodies. You can top this porridge with almost anything – honey, oranges or strawberries! I will certainly rate this as the most creative porridge.
Now for something really healthy! This salad is the most mouthwatering subject I can think of. The salad is basically a bowl packed full of all the vegies you can think of. The only rule is …. vegetables only! Grandma’s salad gets the award for the crunchiest!
Wraps are usually just plain, humble little things stuffed with vegies. But trust me, wraps have superpowers! Remember the last time you ate a vegie wrap? You felt energised afterwards didn’t you? Wraps are the ultimate superheros! I present Grandma’s wraps (with haloumi, beetroot, lettuce and carrot) with the most energising reward!
Pasties are little crescent-moon shaped bits of pastry filled with lentils, chilli and vegie all-sorts. I know it might sound a bit plain, but wait until you try one! Even one is filling! This award goes to the pastie which is the crumbliest!
The apple is even better than a sweet lolly! It is the opposite to sour, it’s very delightfully fizzy and creates bubbles on the tongue. This is all caused by the sugar on the apple. No, no not the sugar you find in jars at restaurants! This is a very special ingredient of the apple – natural sugar! If you didn’t have natural sugar, the apple would be bitter and unpleasurable to eat. Science lesson finished? One of the two remaining rewards (if you read them all!) goes to the apple, the juiciest award!
The lemon tart is the yummiest, most lovely meal that I have tasted! It has a frothy mixture on top, then a yellow paste on the crusty base. I certainly think this is the naughtiest thing I have tried, so in this case, I am going to give the most cheekiest award to it. The last award … your quest ends my friend!
On a very dark Friday night, my fencing coach, Neil, was driving us to a very special opening of a new gym and arts centre at Kardinia International College called ‘The Katsumata Centre’. It’s a very cool place because students can learn, play and act. It hadn’t been tested out yet because it had just been built and we also needed to officially open it.
We when got there, we saw a huge ribbon tied over the stage and wazzah! they cut it and the Katsuma Centre was open! But, that wasn’t the end! Next we got to see Les Misérables which is an opera set in France in the olden days and all about the terrible things that happened – robbery and greed and the funny thing is, it’s a musical!
The minute it started I got all fired up! “The convicts were working hard in France” the actors acted out. “No!”. I clutched my seat! “But one convict was free”. “Yes”! I cheered. “And he came to a church but stole some silver”. “Noooo!” I wailed. “But the Minister told a lie to save him from the police”. “YEEESSS!”.
This went on for quite a while, no and yes, no and yes, for the emotion of the play was quite intense and when it was time for the interval I kept on humming all the songs from the play.
But there was one peculiar song called ‘Master of the House’ that I loved. Here is a link to the lyrics so you can read it and enjoy!
A huge clap to all the Kardinia International College actors for a wondeful night!
Happy Anniversary Big V! I am really excited about your first anniversary. We celebrated with a Lamington Cake from your favourite place La Madre in Geelong. I can’t wait to keep writing for you and I’m very proud of you. Love Orla
