Lindt Chocolate Cafe

I've wanted to try Lindt for a very long time. I've made plans of coming here but somehow got turned off. I was really excited when I entered and being surrounded by all the chocolate felt pretty amazing. It took me some time to decide what I wanted (I think you all know about my indecisiveness by now). 
We ended up ordering a lava cake and waffles. In the meantime, I looked around and ate with my eyes :P
Sad to say, I was quite disappointed because the flavours were heavy, even for a chocolate lover like me. The ice cream was great, but there wasn't enough ice cream to balance the intense flavours from the lava cake. I think I would've liked it more if there were less cake and more ice cream.  The waffles were a let down as they were ordinary and did not come with any fruit either. We were not happy with this as most places offer same waffles, including fresh fruits at a better price!

Overall, we had a pretty good time but not as impressed as we thought we would hav…

Presenting the deep fried Mars bar with ice cream *drum rolls * 

I know what you're thinking, it doesn't look that great?! I must say I was initially skepticalto the combo because I'm not fond of Mars bars (couldn't remember the last time I had a Mars bar), and I don't like deep fried foods either. 
And then, I reluctantly had my first bite... I was surprised at how good it tasted! I know the picture doesn't look as appealing, but it was very delicious!
The outside layer was crispy, and the inside was soft and chewy. It just melts in your mouth with the ice cream. It's the kind of dessert you could have during summer and winter- because it was hot and cold at the same time! 
I'd come back here for this again, and also to try a custom made pizza, I've heard they're very yum as well. 

Juggling June

I spent all of this month writing up my paper. I focused on writing my discussion for the first two weeks. Soon after I started writing, I realised, there were other small things I needed to finalise as well, like how I wanted my tables to look, supplementary information, etc. Getting everything together and trying to tie up loose ends has been harder than I imagined, but having some experience with systematic review write up (from last year) was sort of helpful. I was also trying to juggle a few other things on the side (more about this later). 
Overall, it was a super intense month for me, but things are looking better now because I can almost see the finish line! The good news is that I've managed to meet the deadline I had set for myself, so I'm happy (for now).
In other news, I was doing 'Junk Free June' this month which is an initiative run by Cancer Council Queensland that encourages people to give up a junk food for the entire month. I picked my top 3 snack f…
