And, OMG, this is excellent stuff:

Stingray with Asam Boi Sauce

Serves : 4

Ingredients :

1kg stingray (cut into bite-sized pieces)
5 turmeric leaves
2 tablespoons turmeric powder

Ground
5 shallots
4 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon tamarind juice
2 teaspoons black pepper
a little ghee
sugar, salt to taste

Ingredients for asam boi :

30g asam boi/preserved red plums
4 red chillies
2cm piece dried shrimp paste
1/2 piece palm sugar (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons lime juice
salt, sugar to taste


Method :

1. Marinate stingray with the ground ingredients, turmeric powder, tamarind juice, black pepper, salt and sugar. Stand for 20 minutes.
2. Carefully wrap the fish in turmeric leaves. Rub ghee on the surface of the leaves and broil or grill till cooked through.
3. To prepare asam boi juice : Mix all the ingredients well. Adjust seasoning.
4. Serve the grilled fish with the asam boi juice as a sauce.


The only thing is that you shouldn't cut the stingray up, it's better to pick the meat. Grilling it on a hot plate is the way to go.

I don't know how extensive these sites are, but you might find something.

Also, for some reason the Google search for "Mediterranean recipes" gave me a page full of Middle Eastern cuisine. Which, I must say, is the best food in the world. So if you're interested, try this:

I love them. They come up and get all befuddled by the ticket machine, then realise they have no idea what everyone else is actually saying to them.

Then they start arguing about how the bus says that it's going to, say, Croydon, but they want to go to Knox but it doesn't actually say that it goes to Knox.

I've had to go help one bus driver translate so that the old chinese guy could actually figure out where he wanted to go. Turns out he didn't know either. We let him off and his son runs up, all frantic and out-of-breath. He'd nicked off

Yogurt Cheese Balls

Seems a bit plain though.

I like my bus. By the time my stop comes around most people are off, and i tell the driver that if he wants he can cut down a certain street that will get him back to the depot sooner.
I'd probably just politely say something to the effect of "hey, that was my stop" if mine was missed. But yeah, the next stop from mine isn't really that much further. I occasionally get off at the stop before mine if I fancy a little bit of a walk.

I think the route 55 has some of Melbourne's most boring tram drivers. I hear about cool and interesting ones on other routes, but mine is invariably old guys who don't say much, or foreign guys who have only a faint grasp of English. The Melbourne Zoo is on my route, and too often tourists - especially those from the US and other countries that drive on the right - get on trams on the wrong side and have a longwinded discussion with a barely coherent foreign driver to find out that, no, the Zoo trams go the other way and they have to wait on the other side of the road.

All in all, though, it's a pretty decent route. I overheard two ticket inspectors once talking about how it was a quiet route.

"It says Botany, are we going to Meadowlands?"
"Yes, we do go to Meadowlands after Botany"
"So i need to catch another bus?"

I have never eaten Labneh balls. The recipe does seem a little plain.

There's no recipe for koshari on that page.

I'd say a good route is the one that runs from Domain Interchange to Flinders Street. Most of the tram drivers there are hilarious.

What a shame, we have very few to zero drivers with character.

Really, I just want to do anything new. Lasagne and spaghetti bolognese and so forth aren't exciting any more. Preferably, I want to do something that's quick and that can make multiple meals, so I can freeze some for later.

I'm looking at perhaps making my own gnocchi ...

Good news, people:

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Peter Blake said the cool change was now approaching Aireys Inlet.

That would be the route 55! It runs Domain Road Interchange to Flinders Street, then along William Street through the city before proceeding to West Coburg. I obviously use the northern portion through Royal Park (when Kate and I were still talking, though, I used the whole route as she lives in St Kilda) and I've honestly only encountered a couple of interesting drivers. One gave footy scores ...

Ahh, ok. I've had a few interesting ones when I was going from Mac.Robertson Girls High School to Flinders Street: one gave the following exchange:

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome onboard, and we're heading to Flinders Street."

"Hope you all are having a great night."

"Tonight's a nice night... Thursday night is ladies night."

"Ohh yeah."
