Kreativ Blogger Award

It is an honour for me to recieve the 'Kreativ Blogger Award' from Jenny at Panda & Cakes. Thanks Jenny !

The Kreativ Blogger Award comes with some rules, 7 things about me (I hope it's interesting ^ ^"):

1. I love coffee. I like it strong and I love a smooth and velvety of milk froth (must be skim) that's why I always order cappuccino, sometimes can be changed to flatwhite and mocha ( I don't mind black coffee aswell) preferably accompanied by good baked stuffs.

2. I love food, any kinds or any nationality is fine for me. I love to try things and can eat anything, just that there are some preferences or some that I don't really like.

3. I love desserts, but I don't like it too sweet.. haha.. when I bake cakes or anything for myself, always reduce lots of sugar until sometimes it is not sweet at all.. lol.

4. Now I feel I am alcoholic.. Don't get me wrong, I am not good at drinking at all, a glass of wine or cocktail is just enough for me and make me tipsy. But I like..hahahaha.. Especially when it comes down to chocolate and cakes, I definitely pick the alcoholic one.

5. I am very surprised of myself, never thought that I can blog this far cuz I am not good at narrative essay at all (even in Thai, my language).. first when I knew about, seems so amazing. Moreover, when I can find the great friendship in here... It surely is one of the things I am proud of myself.

6. Australia was the country that never been in my choices of studying ! Not because it's not good but it's too near But finally I came here and never regret.

7. I would love to work with food. I still unsure how I will start, opening the cafe, selling it online, working in food magazine, working at cooking school, or something else. *This one is exactly the same as Jenny but it's so true for me too* first I thought 7 things are too many.. I just wanna say more.
Unlucky, I just have a symptom of reflux oesophagitis (said doctor) about almost 2 weeks. It is something about acid from the stomach into the food pipe. I feel pain at the stomach up to the chest all the time. Now I can't eat (shouldn't eat) oily, spicy and sour stuffs, chocolate, coffee, tea, nuts, eggs, tomatoes, garlic, onion. All that things make the symptom worse. This is so cruel for the food lover, I know you guys understand. T_T but I hope I am getting better soon then I can continue my eating life again (haha of course I have to be careful).

Just to let you guys please be aways and take care of yourself. Don't eat and sleep straight away ( I don't normally do that but still got it)

Anyway, let's back to the award, here are the 7 blogs that I would like to award:
2. Erique Fat Owl at Eat like a cow
3. Heidi at Heidi loves food.
5. Pook at Dailydelicious
6. Koy at Bake-Aholic

Hi Bean Sprout's Cafe, thanks so much for the Kreativ Blogger Award and thinking of me. it certainly seems to be getting around. where on earth did it ever start from? who created it in the first place i keep wondering? I googled and found someone else tried to work it out and think this person started it all . I think we all deserve this encouragement award for being so passionate about what we love ... FOOD! Sorry to hear about the reflux BIG HUGS, very painful :-( hopefully it'll get better over time and you'll be eating heaps of yummy naughty things again.

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Hi there!

I think you've got excellent reviews; they're really insightful and interesting. Time Out magazine actually just did the Sydney Food Awards (link here and we would be really interested to know what you think about our choices!

Did we get it right or wrong? Did we miss out on some awesome places? It would be great to have the opinion of someone who knows and loves food in Sydney.

We do hope you check it out when you get the chance and let us know what you think!

Mary Tan : Wow, I feel honoured that you come to my blog. I just bought the magazine just now..haha. Actually some of places I have never tried but keen to try. So I would love to give you some of my idea.

About the best cafe : Cafe sopra.. never tried yet but heard many people said its the best. I will go try soon in a few weeks. I just found one small cutest cafe in Paddington, called Alimentari cafe, it is a lovely place serve a great coffee and delicious muffin baked in house. Hope you get a chance to have a look.

I am not sure about Black star pastry is the best cheap eat but it becomes one of the great pastry shop so far (too bad the place is so small). Just wondering why it is not in patisseries catagorie ^ ^. But totally agree for Mamak.

The patisseries, one of the great place is Sweetness The Patisserie, Epping. I have worked with Chef Gena and she makes an excellent biscuits and marshmallow.

Being Thai, I think you get it right about TOP 5 Thai (even I never tried Crocodile senior)

Best new restaurant : Now Sepia is a talk of the town now.

I am now planning to follow your magazine to try nice food (most of them are in my wish list)

Thanks for consider such a small opinion from me. Hope it helps.

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Panda : Thanks, I feel better since yesterday. Today I tried eating creme brulee tart from Bourke st bakery..haha.. feel a bit pressured at the chest but a lot better now. I hope I can bake something this week and let you try (if it turns out okey ^ ^)
