    Moved into Sheep Country, Victoria!! and suggestions for staging places!!

    Hello guys, I've been missing for abit as I have moved to a place called Dunkeld in Victoria, Australia. I'm currently doing a stage at the Royal Mail Hotel, which is helmed be Dan Hunter who was head chef at Mugaritz awhile back.. Pretty awesome so far!

    So I'll be here for 6 months or so and am looking for another place to do another stage sometime in July 2013. Suggestions are very welcome!!

    Super excited, feeling that my career is finally starting to move forward!

    Cheers!!
    Melv

    Mel, I remember when you were trying to figure out where to go. You knew you had to leave (was it Singapore?) to build your skills, and look at the progress since then! That's awesome!

    @Dusty Yup the only Asian in that Trio haha

    @Lefty yea I just had to get outta the country for abit. Now it's a 6 month stage here at the Mail, next stop prolly NYC, really hoping to get into Benardin and/or Per Se. And I've got NihonRyori Ryugin lined up for March/April 2014. So that's 1.5yrs of staging and pretty much all the savings right there. Hopefully something good comes up at home after that.

    Cheers Guys!!
