About me

Hi I'm Tomo.
Thank you for visiting my website.

I love cooking, sewing, shopping and playing flute!
I'm Japanese, but have been living in Melbourne for more than 5 years by now.

I've never thought that I would have my own blog because I knew nothing about blogs! But thank you to my media and com teacher, I just learnt how to blog and how blogs can be useful and interesting in the field of media, and then I decided to have

I love melbourne! --people, varieties of food and even crazy weather (4 seasons in 1 day)!!
But I miss home too.I miss Japanese food and my mum's cooking.
I enjoy studying, hanging out with friends, but i miss my family and friends back home too.Studying overseas is definetely worthwhile, fulfilling and a fun experience, but it comes with so many problems and struggles too.!

And that's what I wanna write about in this blog.I want to write about my everyday life in melbourne, both happy and tough experiences.
And also, my everyday cooking recipes

To be honest, I didn't know how to cook when i was in Japan and so when i first came to Melbourne, i always had to eat out for lunch and dinner.

But one day, i thought that i should try cooking by myself.

Please don't be scared and run away from my recipes now, because even though my very first cooking ended up awful and I believed that i had no talent in cooking, I improved a lot as compared to 3 years ago! Now i really love my cooking and my friends love it too

Eating good and healthy food is important no matter how busy you are. Sometimes, I feel like I don't have enough time and energy to cook everyday especially when I have a lot of readings and essays to do for uni. But I still encourage myself to stand in the kitchen and cook something very easy and fast, yet healthy and tasty food!

I like to cook big amount and keep them in the fridge or even in the freezer so that I don't need to be upset about food when i am overwhelmed with school work, especially at the end of the semester. Also, I sometimes use one cooked dish to make something new so that I don't get sick of eating the same food everyday!

Once you can cook well and enjoy the food you cooked, you will love cooking more and more!

I hope you enjoy my blog and try my recipes especially when you are busy with your studies or work and do not have much time to cook... and yet, you want to eat something good!!



  1. wow i admire how you actually cook your meals even when we've piles and piles of research to do for our essays! :D
    i used to cook more last year, but i grew really lazy this year. haha... maybe it's because i never improved to the point that i enjoy my own cooking so much that i just wanna cook even more (like u said). haha
    yeah cooking big portions to keep is a tried-and-true idea, i can't really though with stuff like fried rice cos i don't have a wok, only a deeper frying pan and everything flies out if i cook a lot! -_____-

  2. Haha I think I'm just very greedy!

    I feel like I need to eat good food to survive from all the essays and stuff.

    But when i'm busy with essays, I feel so lazy to change and go out just to buy dinner... so I end up trying to cook my favorite food at home! :p

  3. dude i love your site! it'll be useful for when i start cooking next year

  4. Thank you :) I'm glad you found it useful!

  5. ♦ I used to live in Melbourne and have made a trip to Japan to study Aikido!

  6. Hi Amateur cook,

    Wow, Aikido?! That's really cool! :D
    How long did you stay in Japan for? and which part of Japan did you go?

    You used to live in Melbourne as well, what a co-incidence!
    I wonder where you are now :)
