The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Confectionery surprises from Japan

July 5th, 2009  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  4 Comments

I was lucky to recently receive a Japanese care package from Amy who runs the wonderful Pretty Pretty Yum Yum – a sugar-dazed blog full of the colour and hyper-charm of Osaka’s food and fashion scene.

She also sweetly asked me to review some Kitkats that she kindly sent through, so if you’re choc-curious, you can see what I’ve said about the Japanese-only Muscat of Alexandria and Uji Matcha varieties of the snack by clicking here.

And if you haven’t already, you should spend some time lingering around Amy’s great blog. It’s delightful and full of surprises, like falling down the rabbit hole to an artificially flavoured wonderland.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
