So I haven't been blogging in a while. Okay, a loooong while. Stopped blogging after I completed my internship as a content journalist.
Last week, the fellow editorial interns and I met up for Foodgasm fest - first time for me, second for them.
In the train on the way there, I saw a friend's post on Facebook saying that the venue is extremely muddy; don't wear your favorite shoes.
SHIT. Too late. I was in my 2 day-old, birthday gift worth RM 379 Birkenstocks. Now now, don't judge, my Birkens are pretty, unlike the regular old-aunty designed birkens. Mine are holographic.
Pics next time when I'm not lazy lol.
Sure enough, when we got there, everything was a muddy mess. Like really muddy. Like squishy muddy. Like so muddy you'd think you'd find Timon and Pumba there.
I had to save my shoes/sandals (anything but slippers-please don't call my baby slippers). So I resorted to this:
|Style of the year baby|
This got a few funny looks, but after an hour or so, I spotted a handful of people walking around like this too. Yep, I'm the shoe condom pioneer.
So the mud problem was solved. Now, to soothe the hunger in our tummies. Unfortunately, this one, we cannot solve. Here's why:
|People were even queuing to salvage what's left of their shoes|
The only booths with acceptable queues were the ice-cream booths. So that was what we settled for.
|Who says you can't have ice-cream for lunch?|
|Wonderpop: Mexican inspired popsicles with a twist!|
|Check out their menu!|
And then there was the coconut shake which Jodee only bought for herself. Well, to be fair, Ty and I could not bring ourselves to bespatter our shoes with mud again just to get to the coconut shake booth, so we stole some of Jodee's instead. Mm-mmm, it was heaven.
We decided to go home after that, cos it looked it was gonna start pouring again. But we didn't leave before a few selfies.
All in all, I wouldn't say going there was a complete waste of time, it was just somewhat a waste of time lolol. Long queues, extremely uncomfortable ground to walk on, and overpriced food. The only enjoyable part was that trying to avoid the muddy areas with your friends can be rather amusing - in a sadistic game of Mario kinda way.
Verdict: Spend your money in a cute hipster cafe instead.
