1. the practice or art of choosing, cooking, and eating good food.

Good Food, Good Mood was established after I realised how often I was asking myself the difficult question of "Where and what should we eat today?". The Melbourne food scene truly makes us spoilt for choice, so I am hoping my honest reviews can act as a guide for any occasion - from cheap eats to fine dining, to burgers and pizza on cheat days, to fresh and healthy on cutting days. Recommendations on places to try and review are always welcome, just leave a comment.

All photos are taken with my Samsung Note 4 or Sony NEX-F3 unless stated otherwise. Thanks for dropping by!

P.S. Shoutout to my friends and family who dine with me - thanks for not picking up your cutlery when the food comes out so I can take all my food photos... y'all know my camera eats first haha.

Pink Ribbon Day Dinner

Pretty In Pink xoxo
October is known as Breast Cancer awareness month. 
I am extremely blessed to not know anyone who has suffered with the c word, and I am praying that I never have to. It's really sad knowing that our surroundings increase the chances of having the c word, whether it is from smoking, radiation through our phones or even from microwaving food. Donations and volunteering are what charities thrive from, and they really do need our help. Last year, I volunteered with my good friends Joanne and Fiffy. It was a rainy day, but it gave me a good conscious knowing that I had taken part in raising funds for such a good cause. Sometimes you owe it to yourself to step back from our selfish lives, and focus on what's really important around us. Sign you and your best mates up to volunteer for a few hours, it's really good karma!!!!!!!!!! I pity anyone who hasn't taken the time and initiative to donate money to charities, volunteer at stalls at event days or even stop to buy a badge for Daffodil Day etc. It's never too late to start this month.

My sister and her friend Nhat organised a dinner, consisting of their friends, BBH and a lot of desserts. It's 1:52am and I am still full from all the food, having to run to the toilet every now and then to flush out all the water I consumed. Everyone was required to wear pink and donate $15 towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation. One of their friends donated $50 due to plain goodwill (Giao, you saint!!!). You do not know how far your contribution will go when put together with others. The food was delicious of course, because my mother made the broth for the BBH. There were pink cupcakes, pink donuts, pink banh bo (also known as beef cake, even though there's no beef in it, Xôi (Vietnamese sweet sticky rice), strawberry jelly and choc chip brownies.

^ Decorations on the walls, including balloons and pink paper on the front door which looked like a sacrilegious offering haha................

5. Dinner is served. BBH and Chicken Skewers. Thank you to S+C for brining the mussels and DELICIOUSLY SOFT COLES BREAD. I'm pretty snobby about my bread, and I will vouch for Coles brand when I say the roll is aaaaaamazing. 
6. So I got pretty bored and wrote everyones name on cups, drawing an image that signifies their individual personality. In return, H drew me a Pikachu because that has been my nickname since I was really young :)
^ pink cups with pink drinks and the pink donation box
^ My bowl of non-spicy BBH and pikachu cup :)
^ Strawberry Japanese jelly. Not like your ordinary aeroplane jelly.
