The COVID-19 Post

Ever since I started blogging in 2011, I have literally not stopped - rain, hail, or exams. Apparently what it takes to get me to stop obnoxiously taking photos of my food is a modern day plague. Mind you, this is only a hiatus; the last thing I want to end up being is a one trick pony that knows nothing but doctoring. Plus, eating food as a hobby is hella fun, and it definitely makes a better ice breaker than telling stories to complete strangers about things I saw on my colorectal surgery term. But real talk for a second - coronavirus is no joke. Stay at home, practice social distancing if you must go out, and for the…

No Post This Week!

I'm afraid I'm all out of food-relating things for the week, on account of my massive final fail-this-and-you-fail-first-year-med-school exams looming. Thankfully they'll be all done Friday (for better or for worse), and I'll be back to my regular schedule this time next week. Thanks for bearing with me, and see y'all soon!

Really, really big news

After years of scheming and dreaming, I've finally nabbed myself a spot at medical school! To be precise, at the end of this year, I'll be heading up to University of Sydney to start a new career of poking and prodding sick people. Whilst I'm super duper excited to study medicine and check out Sydney's food scene, I can't pretend that I'm not also saddened to be leaving Melbourne behind. I will of course come back regularly to visit food and family, but for the time being, it looks like Sweet and Sour Fork will be turning into a Sydney food blog. I am so grateful for all the support that everyone has shown me throughout the years, as this…

Big Announcement!

I'm making some big changes in my life at the moment, and it's taking up almost all of my spare time. But there is no way this blog is stopping, as it is now as much a part of me as anything else I might be doing. With that said, less time means a harder time fitting the blog posts in, so for the time being, they'll be reduced down to once a week. New blog posts will now come out on Wednesdays, just in time to combat the mid-week munchies!

Blog Break!

Taking a blog-break today. Why? Because I can, and because I'm a very tired dinosaur. We will get back to your regularly scheduled programming on Thursday.

I’M BACK!

After 2 weeks of trapezing through Malaysia (and a quick stint in Singapore), I’m back in Melbourne, brown as a nut, a little bit more worldly, and possibly also a little more portly. There was so much food to be eaten as ridiculously low prices – less than $2AUD for a full breakfast and a drink! But unfortunately, even though I was planning to blog about all the eatings I did, most of my quick snaps mysteriously disappeared off my camera, so… yeah, boo to that.
