TEA @ SKYHIGH, 26 OBSERVATORY RD., MT. DANDENONG, MELBOURNE

Banana Cake

I was taken for a drive up the mountains after lunch. The atmosphere was different - a breath of fresh air - but still my uncle was smoking like a chimney.

First, we took a walk around William Ricketts Sanctuary. It's an enclave that features the artist's clay sculptures that are blended into the rock formation. The aboriginal inspired figurines with religious overtones were a sight to behold. The cool and forested environment lent an air mysticism to the jaunt.

Next, we headed to a lookout point named Skyhigh, which provided a vintage point of the city and beyond. This seems to be not only a tourist spot, but popular for newly weds.

We popped into Skyhigh's coffee shop before heading downhill. Nothing unusual - just coffee and some cakes. It seems there are going to be a lot of these in days to come, although cakes and pastries aren't exactly my cup of tea.

Carrot Cake

Apple Crumble


This is considered indulgence in my book 'cos for the price of 3 cakes and 3 coffee, 2½ bowls of phở can be consumed; i'll take the latter any time.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
