Circa Espresso | Parramatta, Sydney

Just because I took the day off work because I am sick doesn’t mean I can’t write a blog post! Worked 6 days this week – I think I just had a clue of what it’s like to be a full-time working adult. Definitely a bit more physically challenging than being a full-time university student but hey, I’m enjoying it so far! I’ve always enjoyed working a lot more than studying – $$$ is motivating.

Mr. Crackles | Darlinghurst, Sydney

And that’s how I landed here at Mr Crackles in Darlinghurst – it was the place I vowed with my friends to go with my friends one day, since the beginning of the year – and finally, nearing my first year at uni, I’m here.

What caught my attention about this place is the name – Mr Crackles… there is something about these two words that combine together to make it sound so delicious. And how aptly named it is – it’s pork crackling heaven on earth.
