My Sweet Tooth always gets a good work out when I'm in the city...hit the patisseries!!
Diversion 1 was an artisan pink metallic powder dusted pistacchio macaron with white chocolate ganache and sour cherries. So-so not bad but not amazing, did not superseded expectations or the best macaron I have tasted.
Diversion 2 was inspired by having recently eaten my first Krispy Kreme thing. I was just comparing so I got a French patisserie chocolate custard filled donut...it was pretty good...
Yikes, no wonder I now have a sore throat...no regrets though!
Latter half of the day I indulged some asian flavours...seaweed and spicy tofu ramen in pork stock soup...then a classic pearl milk tea(but damn I should have got the premium for 20c more it's worth it!)
anyway aaaaah...happy belly!
Apart from that forgot what DRAMA is inherent in city living....first my train had to get replaced due to VANDALISM and smashed windows- yes society is going down the drain...
then a humungous bitch fight broke out when one lady sprayed some tea tree thing and another lady tried to tell her to not spray it in an enclosed space...it got rather heated and some threats of fisty cuffs ensued! I was trying not to listen but also trying to work out who I sided with past thinking adult women are so bitchy and belligerent and petty...and why must I live among such unevolved people? BUt then my loyalties got seriously tested when the whitey started making racist insinuations towards the black haired lady, which were really quite irrelevant to the initial teatree situation...at one point the scale was tipping in favour of my asian roots and I had to seriously bite my lip to not embroil in an intervention with my perfectly anunciated and perfectly grammatically correct English sentences despite my black hair- oh wow! :p
Basically the 2c i really wanted to add but refrained was that white people here are MIGRANTS and INVADERS too- why are "Aussies" always so quick to forget the true original owners of the land and the way their land, culture and people were STOLEN?
So yeah I had to express my 2c here...Grrrr!
