“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Yiu Lai Shuk, usually called Grandma, hits her hundredth on the fourth day of this Chinese new year. 

This year is Red Monkey of the fire element: hot headed Monkeys! 

Grandma, her daughter Dora and grand daughter Gi Gi were the first folks to bring classical teochew 潮州菜  regional cuisine to Adelaide, with chef So, in the famous T-Chow.

That's Grandma with Chris Sykes, GiGi's partner, and the author in Park Lok.
