Good ol' Yamba town now has a co-working creative office zone @blancspace.agency
As a freelance writer this is a great way to increase my productivity and collaborate on ideas with other talented individuals.
Huge thank you to Hayley & Mick for launching their new business. It's a wonderful addition to the local community.
Note; there's also a studio on-site for brands to shoot product & private office rooms to lease semi-permanently.
There’s always been an aura of mystery surrounding #silver, purported to do everything from improving #circulation and promoting #healing to staving off infections and warning to the presence of #toxins. Even the art of #silversmithing has been shrouded in secrecy, especially in the #Vietnam of the 18th century, when only craftsmen from China had the skills needed to fashion the highest-quality silver items for royalty and nobles. ⠀
According to lore, a man named Cao Dinh Do went to great lengths to penetrate the secretive, closed-off community of Chinese silversmiths who serviced the Nguyen lords in the capital of Thanh Long in the mid-1700s.⠀
Driven by a fascination with silversmithing, the son of farmers learned Chinese to the extent he was able to pass himself off as a Chinaman and apprenticed with expert #craftsmen, learning not only how to work with silver but also how to build the tools and machines needed. Once fluent, he moved to Ke Mon, just outside of Hue, and established a silversmithing community there, spreading the art across Vietnam. ⠀

Never have I purchased so much chocolate at one time. Absolutely zero regrets and can’t wait to share it with everybody! Honestly the best chocolate I have ever tasted. Check out @valenza_chocolatier and her amazing work! #notanad
Homemade chai latte ♥️I just started watching 'Designated Survivor' with my dad, if you haven't seen it and like political thrillers, then I definitely recommend it! .
-1 cup of water -1 cup of your preferred milk (I used regular but next time will try coconut or soy) -2 tablespoons of creamer -1/4 cup of brown sugar -2 teabags. I used cinnamon tea but next time will use rooibos, a South African tea often used instead of black tea that is caffeine free and loaded with antioxidants.
- 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon -1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
optional: 1/4 tsp of allspice
Combine the milk, creamer and brown sugar in a pot, and heat on medium til the ingredients are mixed well. While this is heating, put the tea bags and other ingredients in a coffee maker (put a coffee filter first ) and add the water as if you were making a pot of coffee. Let this brew. Stir the milk ingredients and be sure it doesn't burn; remove from heat and whisk it til you reach the desired level of frothiness. Pour the milk into a large mug, pour the tea on top, and enjoy ☺️
