Coffee Date, Because…

Annoyingly, I’ve noticed myself saying “Time goes by so fast” way too much at the moment. Or maybe I’ve been saying it forever. I don’t know. Time goes so fast I can’t remember when I first realised it. But what is time anyway? Does anyone really know? Jim Carrey maybe does. Or maybe he’s just getting to me. I’ve come across him a lot recently (see: the Netflix documentary Jim & Andy, this red carpet interview, memes) and I love him more than ever. Anyway. Time passing actually boils down to the fact that I’ll be seeing my family soon. Woo! My parents, sister and her boyfriend are coming to Melbourne in December! All the exclamation marks! I’m taking them to Hobart and Rutherglen so if you have any recommendations then give me them, please!

Here’s a few of the things that have been taking up all that time that I’m obsessed with…

We saw this movie recently, haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.

And I already have tickets to this one next week.

My favourite instagram at the moment.

The difference between Emoticon and Emojis explained.

I also loved watching this in Hoyts Lux. 

And now I’m infatuated with Taika Watiti and love his Ted Talk on Creativity

Really want this sweater. 

Currently reading this big boy.

And listening to the latest episode of The High Low podcast.

This was so awkward but I couldn’t stop watching.

Room 10 in Sydney, Australia

Jack and I were lucky enough to have free accommodation, an amazing apartment in Potts Point, on a recent trip to Sydney, Australia. I think the greatest thing about free accommodation is the free food recommendations that come with it (free as in you don’t waste time doing research). We were strongly encouraged, basically ordered, to go to Room 10 in Llankelly Place.

With three step directions we found it in a matter of minutes. We probably would have walked right by it had it not been for the crowd of people waiting to be seated or their take away coffee. Since there was a wait to sit inside and they offered blankets we sat on the tiny wooden tables outside.

Room 10 is very small but super busy; this made the atmosphere fun and exciting for a giddy tourist like me. I couldn’t stop smiling, people around me couldn’t understand it especially since the weather had turned to shit. Jack was embarrassed. But no one could stop me, I was ready to order without even looking at the menu, “Oh, yes we’re ready. The BREAKFAST RICE, please!” Those same people would have probably been relieved I was a local had it not been for my american accent and the lack of color in my wardrobe.

My strong flat white was placed on the table a few minutes later and following almost immediately came my plate. If I could buy you this meal and spoon feed it to you I would because a) I will not do it any justice and b) you deserve it.

With each bite came every texture, flavor and color I had not predicted. I’m talking about brown rice, yoghurt, warm milk, banana, strawberry, sugar, pistachios, rose-water and rhubarb. I was in the healthy side of breakfast heaven while Jack was lost and deep in the unhealthy side, ripping away his Panini. I almost suggested we go back the next morning so I could have my own Panini or repeat my breakfast rice, but that’s breaking a food and travel rule I’m sure is documented somewhere.

I want to say that I’ll attempt to make this breakfast rice at home one day, because it seems possible, but I don’t want to promise myself such glamorous things.
