which one are you?

Have u ever heard the philosophy about "work to live or live to work?"

I think, I don't have to explain bout this philosophy, cause i guess most of u can determine it by yourself.

Through the words, I describe myself as the person who work to live. It can be seen from my characteristic which is like to play around, have fun and many more.

So, my plans for the next few years are:

1st: work in Oz for the next 2-3 years to gain experience and $$$
2nd: travel around the world in a year to fulfill my dreams to learn about the foods,ingredients, people, art, culture, taking pictures, gain experience and etc
3rd: i guess i have to go back to oz or any other places that i can gain my experience and back to $$$ again for my living.
4th: have a family
5th: we'll see later (hopefully i cant have my own resto back in my hometown)

Next, which one do you think is more important? money, family & friends, career or dream?

For me, I would like to say that family & friends gonna be the most important things cause u cant stand by your own, 2nd it's gonna be money. I know it sound ridiculous, but it's fair enough to think that is important, cause u can't live without money. Except u're some crazy person that choose to live without family & friends as well as the money. Then the last one is gonna be my dreams cause to fulfill all of my dreams i'm gonna need $$$.

I know it's really sound stupid that talked a lot bout $$$, but I really want to live quite wealthy with happy family and friends.

So, tell me which one are you?
Critics & Comments are welcome

No. 27

Here it is Quay no.27 world best restaurant.

I think i made the right choice to choose oz as my destination to study in culinary cause at here there are uncountable good resto with fantastic food.
Last week me and my friends were lucky that we can eat at one of the best world resto and the best resto in sydney within 1 week resevation.

Basically, i had four course menu as my dinner and we started our dinner with canape which was very fantastic taste. 

And this is the list of the food that i had that nite:
First : Sea Pearls which are consists of Sashimi tuna, sea scallop, crab, smoked eel, octopus
Second :  Crisp confit of pig belly, green lipped abalone and cuttlefish, handmade silken tofu, Japanese mushrooms, chive flowers 

Third : Berkshire pig jowl, maltose crackling, prunes, cauliflower cream,  perfumed with prune kernel oil 

Fourth : Jackfruit snow egg
Based on my experience, the food at there haven't gave me the feeling of striking yet, but the dessert was really really good. Unfortunately, it's a jackfruit and i was hoping it was guava as it shown in masterchef.

However, the service at there was really good and for the first time I went in to their kitchen. I'm quite surprise that they have lots of asian chef at there and there are quite big numbers of woman who woks at there. Andddddd..... I was really lucky that I met Peter Gillmore whom is the creator of the food. 

And here some of the pictures and videos of the view and the food from Quay.
