Huka Prawn Park Restaurant

In search for fresh, juicy prawns, we arrived at Huka Prawn Park where you can dine and enjoy lots of other activities like prawn fishing, jet-boating etc. This is a place where you can get full education on prawns, from breeding, catching and eating one, at a fee of course.

Alfresco dining by the Waikato River on a perfect day! Table 43, thats our leftover.

Delicious but rather disappointed with the portion.

Fish & Chips 

   Reckon this can make a good soup base? haha.

An ideal place for family with kids. Food was tasty but I wouldn’t recommend this to peeps who just need a dining location or were on budget. My eye balls almost fell out when I looked at the menu. Fyi, the prawn platter cost us NZD62 which immediately a second voice in my head was screaming…ripped off.

And since you are here in Taupo, don’t forget to check out Taupo Bungy for a quick fix on your adrenaline rush.


Fish is one of my Favourite Food

Besides fishes full of prickly bones and little meat, I love most kinds of fish. I love them cooked in many ways; my choice of fish is over meat most of the time. As you can tell, I don’t really think much of eating fish, I order what is interesting on the menu and if it’s sushi, it’s salmon for me.

It will be a different story starting today. I refer to Nadya Hutagalung’s
Green Kampong website. She has a great site going about being environmentally conscious and responsible. I read about conscious eating at her website and why we have to do so.

I remember sometime back, someone told me not to consume too much salmon because they were overfished and they are not ‘environmentally friendly to eat’ because “it takes many fishes to grow a salmon fish”. Okay, maybe it is not a 100% accurate statement but you get the drift.

WWF is not suggesting we do not eat fish anymore (how can we ever do that?) but to eat with consideration. So they came up with a brochure to help us identify which fishes are farmed with sustainable practices; for everyone’s convenience, it is a printable and foldable piece that fits nicely in our wallets or pockets.

Remember nature’s food chain? It’s time for us to think about what we do and all the consequences that come with it. I’m sure all of us know what kind of world situation we are in, if you are not sure – just tune in to the news and hear about earthquakes, tsunamis, heat-waves and what not. One thing leads to another so let’s keep the earth together – TOGETHER.

Warm love,


Slurp it like the Japanese

Kel has a thing about "a lady has to EAT like a lady". I break his rule often by simply slurping noodles.

And then, we went to Japan where EVERYONE was slurping - ladies, kids, men... To prove my point, check out the papermat I found at Men-ichi, they even include cupping the bowl and bring it to your mouth.
So now I have the license to slurp and convert him into a slurper as well! The idea is not to be a messy slurper; it is to be an elegant slurper.

Try it, slurp it!



Box with name of cake "Spiku"

Linda was in town last week and we had a blast hanging out and doing girly things like visit Browhaus and sharing cake together at PS Cafe.

Knowing I love anything sweet and indulgent (but no cheesecake please…), Linda brought me Spiku all the way from Surabaya. Some bakeries do have this here and call it Surabaya Cake. I still prefer the original version from Indonesia as they make it less oily, less cream in between the layers; which makes it easier to have the second slice!

Warm Love,
