I'm (we're?) back!!!

It's been 1000000 years since we've posted-- and now I (Daryl) am trying to talk Chloe into reviving this blog again! I think the first step is to just start blogging, so here it is, and here I am! :)

One huge reason for wanting to blog again is that I'm now living in Milan, away from my family and friends for the VERY FIRST TIME in my life, and this is all so new! I've been here since September 2015 and I feel like there has been so much to share -- restaurant must-eats, travel itineraries and tips, product reviews, personal lessons, et cetera, that it would be such a shame to experience this wonderful, strange and scary experience and just keep it all to myself, or just to my immediate circle of friends. And I'm sure the same is happening to Chloe. I think that a blog is a great way to catalog experiences and upload them for future reference. When I'm fat and have had 10 children and stay in bed eating donuts all day (alternatively, when I become a cat lady and accidentally eat so much that my legs and the couch merge), I can read this blog and remember all the cool things I did. Hahahaha. Living alone (all by myselfffff....) where people speak a different language and have such a different culture- it can get quite lonely! It was here that i realized how important it is to record your memories-- I've been stalking myself and my friends/family on Facebook so often to look at photos. How much nicer would it be if I could stalk my blog posts here and relive/reread the times I spent with my mom over dinner, with my Aee Candice in Singapore, with my friends at 12 Monkeys? and so on, and so forth.

Another reason for wanting to revive 3748Miles is to stay very in touch with my dear Bruha Chloe-- I'm a terrible replier (everyone in my life knows this and I know this is a very bad, impolite and savage habit) -- I feel like having a joint project like this will really help us stay connected! An old friend is a precious thing.

So here is what I hope you will expect from this blog:
-Restaurant reviews
-Event reviews
-Travel itineraries
-Personal articles
-Product/book reviews
-The occasional recipe!

I hope you are as excited as I am! :)

this is me in a park in Milan- it was my first time to see magnolias!!! :D

Paramount Coffee Project, Surry Hills

It's no secret that I love brunch. It's borderline lunch time but you get to have your breakfast fix. Nothing cheers me up quite like it, I must admit. Paramount Coffee Project has been all the rage lately. I see people posting picture after picture of it on Instagram. The place is immaculate.So obviously, I just HAD to check it out.

Routine calls me to start off with a long black. This was undeniably a good cup.

This is a soft shell crab po boy! YES, I had it for breakfast. But no, I didn't finish the entire lot, I did however split it with my friend. I have a soft spot for soft shell crab. It's just dang tasty without the hassle of trying to yank things out of their shells. The batter was crunchy, there was coleslaw in there which I'm never really a fan of. It could've used something with kick, dibs on SRIRACHA! Came with some chips and pickles. The chips were waaay too salty. After one or two, you won't be keen for another, sadly.

The BEST Lamington.

In the past, I've never been too big a fan of anything that had coconut desiccated coconut. But OH BOY, times have indeed changed. Living in Sydney has changed my preferences towards certain things.. like DESICCATED COCONUT, duh

Lamingtons are a BIG THING in the land down under. I've had my fair share of them, they're usually just a dry piece of sponge to me. But NO, not this one.

My family and I tried Nomama back when they were very new.

I remember I had just recovered from laryngitis at the time and had lost 5 pounds, along with the use of my voice!
