CCU Undercover: Sofitel, Brisbane

CCU would like to believe that she was more than justified in splurging her savings on having a very pampered and luxurious stay at this hotel while up in Brisbane for the Australian Eat Drink Blog Conference. Of course, that is when she actually had the time to enjoy, as there was so much going on!

She could still remember the plush bathrobe, the silken sheets…

And here she was, back at home, typing away with an old ratty jumper and some tatty slippers on her feet..Why must the luxury life end????

CCU Undercover: Wild Pear Cafe

CCU sometimes overlooks the fact that in her sleepy, beautiful suburb, there is actually a lot of awesome cafes. She dreams of living in the big city, but just 10 minutes away, she didn’t realise there was a gem. God, she could be so blind sometimes!

That’s how she found herself on yet another sleepy, rainy morning, her whole family going to this cafe for Fathers Day! She was studying for exams, so unfortunately, she still owed her daddy baked goods, but until then, forcing her family to try this cafe wasn’t the worst way to go at all :)

Tell Me About JAG Australia?

 

Well, since you have asked, how could I possibly refuse right? Thanks to Garlos JAG , I was asked to try out their new service. JAG is one of the newest, most innovative ways of earning a few extra treats on the side for doing not very much.

The basic gist is: Earn points by watching advertisements. Keep earning those points till you have enough. And then BAM! Don’t get hit by a bus (Phoebe from Friends reference there if you got it!), but convert those points into gift cards!

‘Catch Me If You Can!’

So you may all remember that I posted up a lovely little salad recipe a little while back and introduced you all to the very essence of what it is to be a uni student. In terms, of course, of the fact that we are perpetually starving 24 hours a day (or however long we actually are at uni :P)

Well, since this is part of Ala @Wallflour Girl‘s fantastic link up part for all #undergradstudentbloggers and #gradstudentbloggers, we also have a new theme for each time we post up!

I am guessing the title is giveaway enough so let’s see if you can indeed keep up with this part of the student blogger series :D

Best Italian Sweets & Desserts

So, right now I have a few pesky university exams – but totally don’t want to not be posting right? So I was lucky enough to be helped by the wonderful freelance writer, Emily Jones, who will be guest posting for you all today!

She knows I very much have a sweet tooth, she knows you, my wonderful readers have a sweet tooth, so with an Italian twist she decided to satisfy all of us with one slammin’ post!

Please give her a warm welcome mes cheris! And I promise to be back soon :D

Brasserie Bread Extravaganza Part II

CCU was still eating bread from Brasserie Bread , despite this being almost a week and a half after she had received it. Her mother’s tip about aluminium foil wrapping, plus the cold, rainy weather, kept it so moist.

But you must be asking, CCU giggled, why she was eating bread after so long still? Well… perhaps you may remember, but in the last post, she showed you a quick shot of how many breads she had taken home to try. Did she have regrets?

Nope.

Even after finishing a gluten free baking class full of bread, she just could not get enough.

Perhaps, she thought, her readers would understand why after seeing her photos?

‘Please Sir, I Want Some More’

Hello lovely people! Exciting news!! Like, super exciting news :D

For the next three weeks, once a week, I shall be posting up a themed post talking all about the different parts of being a university student!

From different themes for a range recipes, I totally promise you guys, my blog, and all the other fabulous blogs part of this link up, are literally going to be giving you all a magnifying glass to peer into the world of uni students today! :D

But look at the time, I don’t have time for an ellipsis! Let us begin then no? :D

Brasserie Bread Extravaganza Part I

CCU was happy with her new arrangement. Putting the ‘review’ banner was enough – if she kept typing out CCU Undercover as the title for all her posts, she was sure she would explode!

Now that having been said, CCU bit into the fresh and delicious focaccia bread beside her, flexing her fingers and letting them hover them above her keyboard. After the experiences she just had this past weekend, she simply had to do a fantastic write up…

Not. Optional.

CCU reminisced, despite it only being a week later, about the smells of the bakery, the ambience, and most importantly, the various breads she had tried, their crumbs proudly littered all over her laptop. And her bed. And her kitchen. Ok fine, she had eaten bread all around the house (except the bathrooms!).

She had no regrets. It was just that good :)
