Right now I am a tad overwhelmed by just how much TIME I now possess to watch youtube videos hours on end, catch up on shows and have extended brunch sessions and Friday drinks without having a nagging voice telling me to head back to my desk to study.
|Goodbye autumn :(|
So given the weather was recovering nicely from the recent down-pour, and my soul was in dire need of any kind of nourishment, I headed off to Camberwell this morning for some relaxing "me time".
Another thing on my agenda was to check out Prospect Espresso. This little cafe near the Burke/ Prospect Hill junction had been on my wishlist since their inception last year but I always ended up eating elsewhere every time I was in the area.
The shop front is quite modest and low-key and without the outdoor dining tables on the sidewalk, one could easily walk passed the cafe whilst searching for it.
The small and compact cafe contains a long communal table at the front and six or so individual tables in the rear. Its contemporary but snug and cosy.
My heart was set on getting a sweet breakfast to start my day, and the word coconut immediately caught my attention as I am OBSESSED with coconut lately. So I went ahead with my order of coconut rice pudding with kiwi, lime foam and puffed rice.

And can I tell you, it was DELICIOUS. Prior to entering my cfa-induced recluse, I had hit a "brunch plateau"in some ways as I hadn't tasted anything with a wow-factor for so long. Everything seemed to be something involving poached eggs, baked eggs, lots of avocado, heirloom tomatoes or chorizo. Kind of repetitive and boring after a while and most brunch sessions ended with me wishing that I had gone to pig out on Snow Pony's Giddy Up or yum cha galore instead.

I also had a quick chat with the friendly staff and got a takeaway soy latte to enjoy whilst wandering around the market, and it was equally delicious. I picked up some lovely roses from the market and then spend the rest of the afternoon shopping, catching up with a friend and hitting the gym for the first time in 5 weeks. I felt somewhat dizzy after the half hour treadmill workout, clearly an indication that I'm out of the game. ha.
So great to have my lazy Sundays back, no doubt I will be spending one of them again at Prospect Espresso very very soon :)
