Hello! Work has been absolutely mental with the lead up to Christmas. Everyone wants to get things done in a hurry. Only 1 more month to Christmas break and 2 more months to Malaysia! Anyway, I thought I’d finally get around to writing about more activities that we have done since moving here. Last time I wrote about activities that were closer to Nelson City itself but today I thought we venture a bit further and cover the National Parks. There are 3 National Parks within the region – Kahurangi, Nelson Lakes and Abel Tasman. All extremely beautiful and definitely worth a visit if you are after adventure, fun and insta-worthy photographs.
Hello everyone! I don’t think I have ever been so happy that the weekend is here because it has been an incredibly busy past few weeks at work. My office recently had it’s national conference and our city was the hosting office this year. Was great to meet heaps of new people working for the organization but man was it tiring. I was pretty much smashed and cooking dinner was the last thing on my mind. Due to past experiences there are a couple of things I always make ahead and freeze so that I have no excuses to eat out. I think I have mentioned my love of freeze ahead dumplings in a previous post. The other thing I like to make in advance and keep in the fridge is pizza dough. And really, there is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked dough after a long day at work.
Hi everyone! Woops, it has been awhile. Work has gotten so so busy I simply cannot find to finish all the work I am meant to do. 90% of the time I feel like lying down on my office floor to do this –> . I don’t think it is quite appropriate so I have refrained myself from doing so. On the up-side, Nelson is back to it’s sunny warm days so I have started walking/biking to work again. This of course means that Spring is definitely here again. Ah, the birds are chirping, Sakura trees are blossoming and mooncakes start to appear in the Chinese shops signifying that Mid-Autumn Festival is just round the corner.
I love love love mooncakes especially the snowskin types.
Hi everyone! It has been awhile hasn’t it. After a long day at work I have very little motivation to do anything else. Oops. My bad for abandoning this blog. I’m trying to factor in blogging into my weekends but we are away so often that it is becoming a mission! Today must be the on of the few weekends that we have actually stayed put in Nelson so I thought I’d take the opportunity to write a post. This topic here is something I spent hours and hours researching after starting work. So really, I may as well save you all some legwork and share it here .
Ok, when I say preparing meals I do not mean the perfectly portioned and cooked meals that I constantly see on the nutrition/fitness social media channels. If this is what you are looking for, I’m sorry to disappoint. I do actually mean potentially unhealthy or healthy food
