It was from watching shows like Masterchef, Iron chef and My Kitchen Rules that set me on the track to becoming a foodie. I don’t cook but I do appreciate the skills you need to have to be a good chef. The place doesn’t have to be fancy either. You can find amazing food from takeaway restaurants or street food. Not spending as much can also be a good thing for managing your expectations. Bad food becomes a greater disappointment when you paid too much for it!

After playing badminton for twenty-two years I still love how fast the sport is. To play it well, you need to respond quickly, hit accurately and move spontaneously. And even though the shuttlecock looks light, playing through a full game requires a lot of stamina, strength and discipline. Winning usually requires understanding your opponent to find and exploit their weaknesses whilst covering your own. Playing doubles, however, adds a whole other level; your own weaknesses can be covered by your partner but likewise you must cover their weaknesses.
