Searching for Pączki

There is sometimes no rhyme or reason as to why I do the things that I do. Conversely, there are times where I do things for random reasons and this was one of those occasions. I randomly stumbled upon a Youtube channel called Gone to the Snow Dogs [essentially a channel about a couple in northern Michigan and their three huskies. Completely random] a few years ago and they mentioned Fat Tuesday and pączki. Pączki are essentially the Polish version of filled donuts. And so my mission began to the other side of Sydney.

Prior to this trip, I hadn't realised that there was such a large Indian community in Liverpool. There were so many stores selling saris and a giant Indian supermarket. Naturally I popped in for a visit, admired their henna and picked up a guava drink as well.

Sadly my trip for pączki was not successful. The first cafe no longer existed and the second one had a 'We Are Open' sign in the window however I couldn't find the door ....

After my failed attempt, I met up with S. and had my favourite chips and a chai latte from Max Brenner. I was quite disappointed as Max Brenner had previously provided a pot of the chai latte instead of just the cup.

Despite my failed attempt, I did successfully walk away with 500gram of henna! I try to henna my hair once a month. I normally purchase henna online for around $15 / 250mg, so at $7.50 for the bag, this was quite the bargain. Hopefully the quality is good!

I wasn't exaggerating when I said I headed to the other side of Sydney for this. Ha
