A break before exam stress~ Humber

University final exams are like one week away and although everyone should be studying lots, sometimes you need a break here and there.

I went on a lunch break with my friends to Humber just in town on the weekimg_6733end. Although originally we wanted to sit on the roof top because it is very nice up there, the weather didn’t allow us. It was gloomy with a chance of rain so we sat inside.

On a bright sunny day, with clear blue sky, the roof top is the best place to sit. Humber in Wollongong is 3 stories tall in a triangular corner so the shape of place looks pretty unique.

The first floor is where the kitchen is with a coffee counter as well as tables and chairs.

Second floor is more of a bar style where at night, it’s a pretty chill place to be at.

The rooftop terrace has tables and chairs and also a bar but the bar is mostly for night as the rooftop bar which has really nice lighting at night.

I love Humber a lot because it has that unique feel that is aesthetically pleasing to me. A sort of vintage, quirky style, a very chill place to be!

We sort of sat right in the middle next to the window, so we were right next to kitchen. I was facing the coffee front counter and behind me is where the front door is. Our table was actually was in a nice space. It looks cramped in the photo but it actually isn’t.

There were four of us but for some reason, all my friends decided to order the chicken burger. I ordered a cheeseburger and we had some juices as drinks as well. Humber is not cheap, it cost me around $25 for a drink and the burger, but it is filling! The burgers taste amazing but be careful because there’s a lot of sauce and it always get really messy for me because the burger is huge and all the sauce are dripping out hahahaha. The chips are good although a bit too salty for me, it was literally chicken salt everywhere!!

I ordered a mix apple juice, so it has apple, pineapple, orange and something else in it. My friends got a melon juice so that has watermelon and other fruits in it. There was also the coconut juice that actually come as a whole coconut. I am not a big fan of coconut but my friend loved it!

I do like Humber, it’s one of the restaurants that I love bringing people to because I love the atmosphere in that place. It’s a nice place for catch up, but if you are a poor uni student like me then probably only go there every now and then.

It’s an amazing place to get away from the stress of exams!!

Mamak, Malaysian Roti and Satay

Last Saturday, I went to Sydney to catch up with a friend and for lunch we went to Mamak. They Sydney store is near China town just at the end of the road and up so it’s pretty close to the CBD.

Mamak is named after roadside stalls of Kuala Lumpur and is famous for authentic and traditional flavours. They are also an award winning restaurant!

Normally, there is always a long line at the front of the restaurant but since we went after lunch time like around 3pm so it was pretty empty. Which was good because it is a small restaurant and can get really cramped when every place is filled. img_6524

^ see how empty it is, so it was quiet for us!

The staff was so nice, they made suggestions to us and asked whether we liked the food etc! They were really nice!

There was only two of us so we only order two dish. An egg roti and the chicken satay. The egg roti comes with 2 curries, a vegetarian one and an original curry i think and on the side is some chilli sauce. I can’t eat spice that much so we didn’t want to order really spicy things but the curry was good with the roti.

The chicken satay was amazing! I love the peanut satay sauce so much!!!!!! They also had beef but we chose the chicken one as the staff recommended the chicken one as well.

For dessert, we got the famous Roti Tisu! It stands up like a cone with a scoop of ice-cream as a side. It a butter roti with sugar but its made to be very thin and crispy! It’s also very big so I recommend it to be shared with someone else but you can also eat it all yourself hahaha!img_6533

Overall the price wasn’t bad and it was filling! Because I shared with my friend so when we split the price in half it was still under $20 so it was good!!! The restaurant is easy to get to and the staff are very nice. If you go in the off-peak hours, the place is actually very comfortable and quiet. But during peak hour, you might need to line up for a long time before going in and it’s pretty loud and cramped. The food is amazing so I recommend people to try this restaurant!!!
