C & R...you say the gluten free bread?????? I can't eat wheat and have tried the gluten free in the uk and it resembles plastic so tend to have to live without bread.

Can it really be that they have developed a good gluten free bread and if so when i get over where would I be able to get it from?

Couldn't get my niece Layla over on holiday from Angeles City in the Philippines used to Vegemite.............. she loathed it

No chance whatsoever of her getting PR if she fails the Vegemite test

We can't just let anyone in eh........?

Not so much food but one shop in particular: Fegaris fish shop in Hampton Street, Hampton, Vic. Not the one at the bottom called Fergs but the one further up. Fantastic fish and all fresh and sashimi grade. I Don't go anywhere else now for my fish

oh and cherry ripe but I try to stay clear of that one!

May sound odd but fish and chips. Much better then the fish you get from the UK that got more batter then fish, plus it''s made fresh and not been sitting under that hot light for hours.
