I have to be the most disorganised traveller ever. Before every trip, I make a firm resolution to have everything packed and ready to go a day before the actual departure date, but somehow, that just never happens!

It’s 11:46PM and I’m still up! But on the bright side, I’m nearly done stuffing my (and the Hubs’) luggage with tons of Lindt chocolate. I’m sure the Australian Customs are going to think that I’m trafficking hazelnut praline!
Well, I’m sure you’re all eagerly waiting the results of the draw. I had 15 bits of paper in my paper salad as you can see. (Can you see the TV reflection of some very bad late night program in the bowl?)

Anyway, the lucky recipients of Tim Tams are:
Cookie Baker Lynn
Jaden from Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen
Padma from Padma’s Kitchen
And last but not least,
Wandering Chopsticks

Um, yes, I know that’s 4 names and not 3…but hey, it’s late and I was on a roll!

So ladies, can you please email me ( your snail mail addresses! Ta!

Urggh, it’s 12:07AM already!

See you all in 3 weeks!

  3. wokandspoon,

  4. Have a great trip. I hope you will not be in a long queue if you declare you have food stuff (yes, even Lindt).

    My dad buys Lindt all the time for us (yes, cheap in Melbourne). I don't know where he gets them from....some supermarkets??

    My daughter was held back for 2 hours in the queue for custom checks because she had Digestive biscuits.
