A Little Birdie Says

Follow me on my little adventures in falling in love with every little thing in life. Instagram: nattiekoh

Just received an email with well wishes from Tumblr today - ‘A Little Birdie Says Turned 2 Today!’ with a Candle on a Cupcake. How perfect!

I didn’t even realised that it has been two years since I started this blog. A Little Birdies Says was an intent to pen down my journey away from home. As the two years went by, I realised half (or more than half) the blog is filled with food posts. No surprises there.

Well, two years have passed and now, I find myself entering a new chapter. Honestly, it scares me for what is to come feel so uncertain. Yet I know it’s going to be an amazing ride ahead. 

While embracing the life ahead, I’m grateful for everything that I’ve been through in Sydney. Grateful for the people I’ve met, of which some became close friends, some left and for some, it feels like we became a small family away from home. Grateful for all the friends who stayed though we are miles apart. Grateful for the one super woman who made everything possible, my dearest mother (I’m coming home to you real soon.). Grateful for all the good times and bad, for I’ve grown to become a better and stronger person. 

This little space will continue to bring you more food yummies and nature wonders from travels across the globe (whenever possible). I’m certainly grateful for those who drop by this space too.

So..I’m going to share some of my favourite macaron places in Australia:

Cre Asion (in Sydney) - known for its Green Tea Cappuccino & Japanese influenced macaron flavours! [Green Tea, Lychee Raspberry, Thai Milk Tea, Truffle, and many more]

Baroque Patisserie (in Sydney) - my personal favourite. It does not have as wide a selection as Cre Asion or Zumbo but its macarons are amazing. I simply cannot resist the Rose Water macaron, or the Pistachio one. If you ever head there, do go for the Creme Brulee, trust me you will want to try this. It comes with pistachio ice cream too.

La Belle Miette (in Melbourne) - My fave in Melbourne. Such a pretty little place at Hardware Lane that serves some of the best macarons I ever had. Ranging from the classics such as Salted Caramel to the new experimental ones, Moet et Chandon & Blackcurrant. 

A little birdies says it’s been a while since I wrote on a more personal level but well, thanks for reading and I hope you’ll keep on coming back for more posts on food treats. ;) Life is sweet.

BREKKIE WITH A VIEW @ BURNT ORANGE

I’ve always been a fan of places with breath taking views of the world. Burnt Orange is one of the few that I truly like. Out in the middle of nowhere, there is a little vintage looking house with an amazing cafe. Great food and great coffee.

Breakfast Bruschetta [Tomatoes & Avocado Salsa w Bacon & Poached Egg on Sourdough Toast - My fave of the day!] | Baked Eggs & Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread | Buttermilk Pancakes with Bacon & Maple Syrup

A lil birdie loves a HUGE brekkie. 

This may just be one of my favourite dessert places in Sydney! Baroque Bistro always amaze me from time to time.

Such serenity, with calm waters and blue sky.

Yummy scones, carefree animals. 
Safe haven, carefree minds.

The Fine Food Store, the perfect place to have a sunday get together with some friends and have casual conversations over Campos Coffee, Belgium Waffles with Panna Cotta Gelato and Croque Sir Toastie.

CHISWICK Restaurant birthday lunch for our dearest housemate, WY! 

Some of our favs for the day was the Crisp Buttermilk Chicken, Char Grilled Moran Grass Fed Beef & Roasted Snapper & Bottle Squid with Romesco Sauce!

Apart from the yummy food, the place just looked like it came out from a postcard. Such a pretty place to dine in and chill out with a cup of tea. Perfect for a close affair with your girlfriends. 

A little birdie says..live the moment and Happy 22nd my dear roomie (: xx
