These three girls were preety much my mains back in high school, since from year 7 to the final year, year 12. We rarely get to hang out, usually months in between! So instead of the usual catching up indoors, I introduced them to my favourite cafe in the Western suburbs of Sydney, The Tuckshop.

Was freezing cold, but fortunately for us there was a bit on space inside.

Toasted almond muesli, seasonal fruit and yoghurt $12 – I chose this instead of a burger, because for one thing it would be very difficult to eat with braces and it’s a lighter meal

It’s always great to catch up with old pals, we were talking about each other’s personality types and seeing how different we were from each other. I voiced out that it’s better to have a group with various personality types, because if people were similar than it would get boring and stale. Yes, they would agree on a lot of things, like maybe less fights between couples, but I believe there wouldn’t be enough room for growth. I think being unique and different is the key for a wonderful and exciting friendship/relationship.

In the end it was great to see them two again, watching and hearing what they have been doing makes me feel so old now haha!

Brought back this cinnamon cronut back for my partner.

Glazed cronut – I think it was about $4 

There has been an abundance of pictures of this crazy cronuts! Like all these different flavours and what not. So when I saw that this cafe had some, I HAD to try it! I bought the glazed one for myself and a cinnamon one for my partner, and OMG it was heaven! It honestly doesn’t look sweet, but it really is. Not too sweet and the bread was tender to bite into. Reminded me a lot like krispy kreme’s original glazes.

YUUUMMMMMMMYYYYYY, might hunt for another cronut!

Dr. Michio Kaku

Sydney, Town Hall 

I had the privilege to attend a presentation, supported by UTS Science, Think Inc. etc, by Dr. Michio Kaku. Actually, I only came across his field of work just a month or two ago, introduced by my partner. You should watch his videos, he is honestly great stuff because he explains his field of study (String Theory) in a very descriptive and simplistic way that anyone who doesn’t have a clue, can understand.

So when I saw that he was having a tour in Australia, I jumped for the opportunity.

Look how packed! Luckily we got to sit upstairs.

It was held in an iconic building, Sydney Town Hall, I always walk by the place and I always thought it was just a building that doesn’t let people inside haha! Walking inside, the most beautiful thing is that the place had these superb chandeliers that I couldn’t take my eyes off, it was like walking into some grand government building.

The only negative of sitting upstairs is that you have to turn your neck to the left/right (uncomfortable).

The man himself.

Looking to your left or right at the event, you will see an array of people, children to older generations who may have just went because a friend didn’t want to go alone or they were a fan of Dr. Kaku’s work. Either way, it was nice to see a flood of individuals who are genuinely interested in modern science and more specifically String Theory (Theory of Everything).

Before Dr. Kaku came out, there were two open speakers Dr. Terry Percival and Dr. Jordan Nguyen who have made and still continuing to make impacts in the modern science world. It’s really astonishing, particularly in regards to Dr. Jordan Nguyen who is still quite young, creating something brilliant that can help with people with disabilities. Man how I wish I had their intellectual brain! haha!

So Dr. Kaku took the audience on a ride, exploring what String Theory was, the multi-universes theory and the theory of everything. Made my brain explode with all the information I took (in a good way).

Before the night ending with… “crowd selfie”.

At the end, people got the chance to ask the Dr. anything they wanted and to everyone’s surprise (maybe not all) he answered the question flawlessly and very grandeur. I honestly don’t know the term for when famous people take a self-portrait with the audience as a background waving? I’ll call it “crowd selfie” for now, until there’s a legit terminology for it.
