Remembering how stupid you were!

Most people don't generally like feeling stupid or inferior but I actually see the joy in it. It means that you have learnt more in life and I think it's always great to challenge yourself against others who are better than you at X. If we were perfect, we'd become terribly bored.

For example, I started to take more photos using a DSLR camera. It's been a few months now and I've just looked into a user guide (finally found the time!). The things I've learnt e.g. setting ISO, aperture and shutter speed via a dial rather than manually pressing on the screen 😌.

So if you ever feel stupid, it's not all bad!! You learn from it and it means you've grown :)

Mr Stone Bowl, Burwood, NSW (Chinese Cuisine)

Review: 6/10** - Some of the dishes need work but the signature ones are very good!

**Currently need to go back to try a few of the other dishes to give a more accurate review.

- Corn pancakes: Reminds me of mochi donuts! It's quite nice but can be a tad oily.  - Xiao Long Bao: Filling is delicious, skin is a bit thick (9 pieces) - Stir Fry Green Beans with shrimp paste: Large serving, flavourful with the use of shrimp paste but this is a dish you can make at home - Cold noodle in homemade pork mince paste: Lack of sauce and is watery - making the dish bland. It's possible to make a better version at home - Wagyu beef with cayenne pepper: A winning dish with tender peppery beef pieces. - Wonton in red chilli oil sauce: Lack of flavour in the filling and the dumping wrap is thick. Also has a peanut sauce which I am allergic to! 

Drawing as a childhood goal

As a child, my dream was to be an animator and through that I needed to learn how to draw. It was something I was on and off but never really committed to it. I want to be able to do that so I've started a drawing journal where each day I draw something based on a topic.

So far I'm on Day 20 and have managed to keep up! I don't consistently draw everyday as life gets very busy but I make sure to do enough to keep up.

Looking forward to completing more of this journal!

When life throws you a curveball

Hello Everyone,

It's a while since I've blogged. The reason being is that I've injured myself by tripping over nothing! Just typical Lisa things, but I did injure a finger and scrapped my knees which did put a damper on exercising and drawing unfortunately.

However it doesn't give me the excuse to slack off! Whenever I could, I still push myself to jog, to draw and do the things I strive to do. I don't overly push myself because I still want to recover however I never wanted to stay in a stalemate for too long as life keeps moving!

I'm 90% back and will strive to continue working to my goals.

Not Just Curries, Harris Park, NSW (Indian Cuisine)

Review: 7/10 - Solid place for Curries & Lassi drink

- Tandoori Chicken is a solid dish when eaten immediately when served.  - Butter Chicken has a nice spicy kick but no mild version, only spicy - Garlic Naan bread is too oily but has a nice amount of garlic - Chicken Korma not my favourite, not sure if it's because it's not my kind of dish or the way it is cooked in this restaurant.
- Mango Lassi - very solid drink! 

The beginning of food blogging

I love all sorts of food and appreciate the various cuisines around the world. From here I'll start documenting and gather photos of food related information, whether it is through cooking, eating out or just something related to food!

Current goals 290719

Ultimately, my goals are much larger than this and achieving these set of goals allows me to achieve other goals. Listing them here makes me accountable and I do not want to stray from them for too long. 
I will go through my progress and strategy to achieve these goals. I hope to be able to give ideas to other but am also interested in what others do to achieve their personal success!
