Xin Chào everyone! I’m Tram from Vietnam, currently studying a Diploma in Creative Industries at QUT International College. When I came to Australia, I was shocked to see how everything here was so expensive, even a cup of juice could be $7. Then I thought I would try cooking at home, since I rented a room in a shared house with a common kitchen, to save money and eat healthier. So today I want to share some useful tips with you from my six month experience of home cooking (and occasionally eating out)!

I still remember what we were told during our Business Orientation session. “ It is hard to adapt to a new country, university and lifestyle all at once, but what you might not realise yet is that is even harder when you finish your studies”. Now I can relate to that feeling of leaving behind my student life. Whilst moving on is exciting it’s also scary at the same time. The future seems both challenging and uncertain.
