FAPFAP – Australian Treats!
So as most of you might already know, we just recently went to Australia and had a chance to meet lots and lots of Aussie Nasties both from Sydney and Melbourne. If you didn’t know that, you can check out our adventure videos in Australia. Well those lovely Nasties brought us lots of local snacks to try so we decided to do a little FAPFAP combining the treats from Sydney and Melbourne. We didn’t put everything on camera, for example, we got some perishable goods like cupcakes, cookies, and cheesecakes and we nomnomnomed those right away. Also, I hope you Aussie Nasties don’t mind, but we shared all the food you got us with the volunteer staff and the SQ Entertainment staff since there was no way we’d be able to eat it all! They were pretty happy.
We also ate A LOT of crazy Timtam flavours, like Honeycomb, Rum & Raison, and Orange. Lucky for us the hotel we were staying at had green breakfast smoothies and a gym! WAHOO!!! We were especially happy Soozee was with us because most of these flavours were totally brand new to her and she had never even heard of them before. Leigh lived in Australia for a bit so she already knew a lot of the candy and had recommended stuff for us to try. If I had to pick my fav, I’d have to say Violet Crumble because I love that kindof burnt sugar taste. But I get the feeling it’s really really really bad for you. We also tried a Lamington from a local cafe in Melbourne and it was a lot richer than the one we tried on camera since it was triple the size and had jam on the inside! It was really yummy but quite sweet and needed to be drank with coffee for sure.
Also, you might have noticed Leigh’s “stand in” who is our friend Harriet, who we actually met in Bucheon a while ago but is now living in Australia. Small world right? She told us that in Australia candies are called Lollies. Is that right? Is Lollies the generic term for candy? Or is this a Britishy thing cause Harriet is British. I think Lollies sounds totally lovely.
Lastly, if you’re watching this from Singapore, hey! We got some news for you! We’re doing a Fanmeet tomorrow! It’s going to be
Wednesday, September 18th, at 5pm at Scape on Orchard Rd.
If you want to come, you should meet in the atrium! Woohoo!
