Gabbi J Blog

I'm a writer by passion

I wrote my first book when I was 3 and a half years old, titled, 'The Adventures of Super Gabbi', which followed Super Gabbi as she saved a park full of kids from a crazed crocodile. Exciting, right? I guess you could also say I've always had a passion for adventure too. This passion has taken me around the globe, for months at a time. I studied in both Italy and New York, and I've also ventured my way through Asia and all across Australia.

These passions have seen me write for a range of blogs, newspapers, and magazines, drawing on my experiences, travels, and more often than not, my love for food. Food, I have discovered, is a universal language that can bring people from different backgrounds, cultures and religions, nationalities and walks of life together. It can unite people in a way that sometimes spoken language can not. It can give an insight into culture and heritage, as each dish has a different story to tell, and each meal encourages a different conversation.

This is not my first rodeo (blog-eo?) - throughout my degree I maintained Thoughts of a uni student which was used as an experimental base.  I've also written for the likes of Scenstr, The Urban List, Bella Rae, South City Bulletin, and Smudge Eats.

Food - Heya Bar 

There's nothing like the dingy staircase leading to a dimly lit bar that houses some of the best pan-asian bar food that your tastebuds will ever experience. Cue; Heya Bar. 

 

Digital - Why invest in Social Media? 

I have always preached the importance of social media, and the importance of businesses being on social media.

Lifestyle - Breakfast Dates

I'm one of those people that will suggest breakfast dates. What does that say about me?

 

Travel - People Watching

One of my favourite places in the world is at the gates of an airport.
