I'm Patti, great to have you here.

Welcome to Fresh Saturdays, my little corner of the internet where I try to give well-intentioned food reviews,  lifestyle recommendations, recipes, and city guides that can hopefully add value to your life and help you make some of life’s most important decisions – where and what to eat! 

Apart from food, and because I love writing from experience, here I also cover general life topics, including motherhood, culture, adulthood, and culture. 

I live with my husband and daughter in a beautiful and quaint coastal city in Australia called Newcastle, which is a two-hour drive from Sydney. It’s a scenic harbour city made up of heritage suburbs and idyllic beaches that truly bring the coast to life.  It is imagery straight out of a book that fills you with peace and inspiration, and I’m well and truly grateful to call it home. 

I’m a publicist by trade, but I am also a passionate homecook and an avid fan of finding the perfect series to binge at any given point in time. I am a huge advocate for experiencing culture through food, so I love trying different cuisines! My favourite, though,  is and always be my own – Filipino! 

I’m excited to be on this journey with you, and I hope this blog can give respite and comfort when you read it. I’m so glad you’re here!
