1/2 a cinnamon roll

September 22nd, 2012 — 5:31pm

It was one of those days when Chris and I felt like trying somewhere new for a break so we went to this tiny bakery with a blue awning, somewhere I’d been wanting to go. I hadn’t been there simply because our favorite cafe and bakery is just about a minutes walk away, but we knew we came to the right place soon as we stepped inside the cafe.


I had patted a sweet dog in front of the post office so I was hoping to wash my hands at the cafe, but there didn’t seem to be a bathroom. Instead, the shop girl invited me behind the shop counter to use her tap which was very kind and fun. While I was washing my hands, Chris ordered a cinnamon roll to share, cut it into half and tried to give me the slightly bigger one. I’m pretty good at cutting food equally into half, from hamburgers to mille feuille, so I noticed the size difference. (I guess it comes from my greediness). I said, “You’ve been wanting to eat this cinnamon roll, so please take the bigger half.” and Chris said, “I think they are pretty equal.” So, I guiltily accepted his kind gesture. Then the shop girl came over to give us an extra set of plates and forks, looked at our cinnamon roll and said, ‘So, who’s getting the bigger one?’. It made me laugh.


It's nice to have a new favorite!

Trip to Fiji

September 3rd, 2012 — 7:40pm

The other day, on our way to shop for groceries, Chris and I spotted a little skinny girl standing in front of the cinema selling raffle tickets. We just couldn’t ignore her sweet innocent voice and since she was fund raising for her school library, we happily decided to buy a ticket from her.


While Chris was writing down our details, I was very surprized to find out that the first prize was “A trip for two to Fiji”. What a high budget prize for a school raffle! And so far the girl only seemed to have sold two to three tickets. I suddenly had high expectations of winning this two dollar raffle. After our shopping, the girl was eating a popsicle which seemed perfect, as if she’d just bought it with our raffle ticket money. It made us laugh.


Today I asked Chris, “So, did the girl tell you when the raffle will be drawn?” Chris said “No”. I thought she would be just one of a few girls selling tickets as part of a raffle committee, but Chris told me he thinks everyone in the school would be selling tickets…


Suddenly, Fiji felt so far away.
