Hey hey Good morning!!
So Sydney’s getting hotter by the day now. The weather was just wierd till last week – it was sort of spring already, but then it used to be cloudy/rainy pretty often and I couldn’t enjoy the glory of the warm sunlight to truly appreciate the arrival of spring. But these couple of days has been quite very warm, almost hot. So glad I got these shorts from ASOS recently, now I’m totally ready for the heat!!!
Cute polka dots, eh?
And the warm weather called for a refreshing breakfast yesterday…
Kefir yoghurt with frozen berries (thawed) and scooped out tamarillo.
Honestly, this was the first time I’d ever even held a tamarillo!!! I actually didn’t know what it was when I was buying it – I just thought it was some variety of a plum or something and popped it into my basket (ok, it was on sale, so I thought why not? ). I was definitely wrong. When I cut it open in half, it sort of looked a bit like passion fruit on the inside, only with less fluid. Tasted nothing like it though. I didn’t mind the sourness but it was also a tad bit bitter…I don’t think this is really my kind of fruit
Does anybody like tamarillos?
Are all of them always bitter like this?
I had a molecular biology prac class yesterday from 12, which turned out to be very time-consuming but pretty dull…it was just not very exciting, but oh well, like I’d even expected a molecular bio class to be so interesting anyway And who wants to wear a lab coat in such a weather???
And this is what I whipped up for lunch after the class:
Green salad with tomato, zucchini, mushroom and pumpkin, drizzled with a sort of apple cider vinaigrette that I attempted to make. I guess the dressing wasn’t so bad
And some organic udon with “tsuyu” (= soup/sauce) I made with soy sauce.
It was a different kind of carb than what I usually take (I usually go for bread, or if not, rice), but variety is definitely good to avoid getting bored!!!
Followed by a little study sesh at home, then Zuuuuummmbaaaaa I think there are a couple of instructors for Zumba at our gym, but I like Rebecca the best Really awesome+friendly+cute+smiley person. Every instructor sort of has their own style, and I guess I sort of like hers. Gah, I’m a beginner so maybe I don’t know well enough but I do know what I like
And a snap shot of my post-Zumba dinner:
The last unfrozen bit of the leftover tomato brown rice recooked on the pan with the leftover lentil curry soup with an addition of the egg on top…
The salad was the same as the lunch. Yeah you know I’m pretty lazy like that
Anyway, now I’m off to get ready for my French class!!! Adieu, mon amis
