Worth visiting 3 times.
It’s only 1 more month before the end of my exchange program 😭 and I’ve only posted 1 article. One of my good friends from Singapore even complained on why I ‘never’ update my website. So, here it is.
I consider myself as a conscientious, organized person: I’ve started planning my road trips and contacted my best buddies who are studying in Australia 8 months before embarking on my exchange. And, one of them, who happens to be a foodie, recommended me the Black Star Pastry. He told me again and again and again that Black Star’s Strawberry Watermelon Cake is a must-try.
So, I visited 3 different branches on 3 separate occasions.
LOLLL are you serious? 3 times? – my best friend who recommended me Black Star Pastry
Yes, I am dead serious.
On April 30th 2016, I visited Black Star for the first time. It was early in the morning, around 9 am. It was drizzling, the wind was cold. I visited the Powerhouse Museum branch. I was so excited, only to find that the Black Star Pastry has been replaced by another cafe just one month before.
I didn’t give up; I gave it another shot on the following Sunday. This time, I visited the Rosebery branch around 3 pm. But, God had another plan: the Watermelon Cake was sold out. At this point, I began to wonder whether there is something wrong or not. Why it is so hard to buy a simple Watermelon Cake? Have I been predestined not to have it?
Nevertheless, I am not a quitter. So, I tried again last Saturday at the George Street branch. And, my prayer was answered:
Not only it is worth my 7.5 bucks. It worth visiting 3 times.
