Chocolate High Tea @ Swissotel Sydney


At Swissotel Sydney

What a awkward week of weather we have had. First it was a promising start to spring, the days were warm and the clouds in the sky a scattered white and blue. However the past few days now have been more of dreary winter feels - darker clouds, strong rain and winds. Confusing!

Let us take refuge in the classy Swissotel Sydney instead for a chocolate high tea. When we went for the first time we were in awe of the high ceiling atrium lobby and the laid back lounge chairs. Our high tea came with two delicious beverages - one hot, one cold just like our confusing Sydney weather.

The icy baileys cocktail was addicitively sweet and chilled with broken bits of ice cubes. It's milky and strong in the liquer, whilst the hot chocolate shot was it's wing man for having that warmer and thicker consistency which our waiter mentioned something along the lines that it had a dash of cornflour(?) to make it a tad bit thicker.

Then came the tiers of sweet and savouries. Being more of a sweet tooth, I started to nibble on the sweeter things first. Cheesecakes, choc-caramel tartlets and eclairs were on the cake tier.

Petit rolls of savouries were placed on the other and it wasn't much of an impression for me. I mostly just enjoyed the salmon baguette from them all.

And of course, the traditional scones with cream and jam. Warmed up chocolate-chip scones that were crumbly to the touch and slathered generously with its accompaniments.

Yang San Park, NSW


Korean BBQ is so good especially when it's winter in the evening and you want something warm and in need of a good ol' B-B-Q.

We try the Yang San Park for the first time. A busy restaurant situated on the corner of Dixon Street and Harbour Street that is often quite busy with a lot of tables being turned over. And now I know why, because sitting there with my parents Mr. Chatterbox and Mrs. Helpful we are prompted with such a unique service we haven't seen/had for K-BBQ in a long while.

Trip: Leura & Katoomba


After working about so many days straight in a row after a while you just want to zone out and obtain some tranquility away from all the interactions that come across your busy day.

Mr. Bump and I planned a spontaneous overnight trip to the countryside and took the city train outbound by CityRail which took 2 hours each way but was a little bit scenic itself, going through suburbs I've only vaguely heard of growing up once we skimmed by Strathfield, Parramatta then came Penrith, Emu Plains, and then all stations up the Blue Mountains where everything to me felt like I was crossing unknown territories.

Pishon Patisserie, NSW


Venturing inside the recently refurbed Chatswood train station theres a lot of new eateries to choose from upstairs in The District - a mega huge food court with some interesting asian varietals to choose for your lunch or dinner meals. Then take a level down and you'll find the loveable Pishon Patisserie, a Korean cafe/patisserie adorned with quaint wooden furniture and adorable drinks and sweets on display.

Nonna Maria's Place, NSW


The nights have turned so cold lately, so it was warming to take refuge on a cool evening at Nonna Maria's Place at 56 Phillip Street in Parramatta that one time ( the rare full moon) that I decide to venture forth to try someplace new out of my usual city locations.

Old school, traditional and home-made authentic Italian cuisine is what comes to mind once you find yourself seated inside Nonna's, a welcoming quaint little place with red and white checkered cloth tables, old Italian wine bottle candle sticks whilst serving up home style meals that just makes it feel even more like something Nonna would make for you.

Aqua S Ice Cream Parlour, NSW


Lately I've been accumulating a Aqua S habit - especially when i'm walking in Town and happen to know I can stop by Regent Place along George Street to have a sneek-peak and potentially buy their latest flavour creation.
