I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Update October 10th 2017
The Bao Brothers now have their own eateryhttps://www.weekendnotes.com/bao-brothers-urban-eatery/ and no longer trade out of Reserve.
In the Market for Market Food
Head over to the Reserve Wine Bar on Tuesday evenings for Bao Boys Buns.
Each Bao is $7 or 3 for $18. These steamed Chinese bread rolls are soft pillows folded around delicious flavour combinations. Pork belly, chicken, lamb and mushroom are combined with different sauces and garnishes and given interesting names.
It is great to see an inner city venue doing so well on a Tuesday night. Some of the patrons drop in on their way home from work for a quick meal whilst others see it as an excuse for a fun evening. As the buns sell out quickly, people are quick to place their order before getting a drink at the bar.
We are not usually in Newcastle on Tuesday nights but we will be looking out for the Bao Brothers at the markets.
