Symbio Wildlife Park | South of Sydney, NSW

Days leading to Valentine's Day we will normally be bombarded with advertisements of this special day. Gifts, romantic candlelight dinner or even weekend romantic getaway for that special one. One of the ads that I remember most was by an Insurance company a few years back, “Show your love one you care, give them the coverage they need on this Valentine's Day”. All these messages are actually a good reminder for us to do some things that we can illustrate our appreciation for the special one in your life.

[CLOSED] Ming Kee Live Seafood – New Place with Same Old Flavour



My first encounter with Ming Kee was through an introduction by old family friend Uncle E. At that time, we were missing the taste of Fried Mud Crab with Egg Noodle, Cantonese Restaurant style from our days in Melbourne - (our first food hunting ground). We instantly got 'hooked' on the crab beehoon here, and started to visit Ming Kee frequently until we were just sick of it and stopped going there for a few years. With a sudden craving for crabs beehoon beckons recently, we decided to visit our favourite restaurant.
