Dinner + Playground + Max Brenner

With only 3 weeks left of university this semester, assessments and stress is starting to pile up. Luckily I only have 1 more assessment next week before my finals, all of which are scarily close. Last Friday I had a dinner with two close friends to catch up, unwind and forget about the stresses associated with our respective degrees. I finished comparatively earlier than both friends so I spent a few hours wandering around the city; I also left Lincraft with 3m of red velvet! (I don't know what I will do with it though). I've said this many times before, but I love Sydney and I think it is a gorgeous city.

I had always intended on visiting the new playground at Darling Quarter but had never found the time previously. That place is amazing and the inner child in me thoroughly enjoyed everything.

After the sun had set, I ventured to Chinatown in search of the Emperor Puffs which I adore. Along the way, I came across this laneway decorated with paintins and these glowing spirits (?).

After dinner, we went to the playground and it was amazing. The children had left and this time, I was able to try all the equipment; the flying fox, giant slide, sand digger ♥♥♥ and this circular-swing-like contraption. It was the most fun I've had since the Taylor Swift concert earlier this year.

Later, we went to Max Brennar. I used to frequent the place weekly, however the place is just ridiculously overpriced. $2.50 for melted chocolate? I could buy a block of chocolate myself for less than that and melt it myself. $6 for chai? Seriously? The prices are insane however once I forget that factor, I do quite like the place. Yes, I did purchase the over priced melted chocolate (aka chocolate lick) and white chocolate chai.
