I went to the sushi stall on Circular Quay on my break. I asked for both a coffee and wonton soup. I craved wonton soup all afternoon and needed a little pick me up from the coffee.

‘Coffee and soup?’ was the response as I placed my order. I hesitated but remained committed. I thought to myself, is it a weird order because they are incompatible in my stomach? Or is it just a weird pairing, like going to a wedding in a clown outfit?

Oh well, it is what I wanted and if I have learned anything in life, it is that humans are capable of doing very weird things whilst being convinced otherwise, especially en masse. Heck, I wish I poured both liquids into the same cup and downed it there and then to really emphasis my point, although admittedly that would be weird, even for me.

  1. Oh, I remember the sushi shops at Circular Quay ferry terminal…are you in Sydney at the moment? I think it’s your choice when it comes to the food so they shouldn’t really mention it though, after all they will still get paid for it 🙂

    1. I know right?! Anyway, they weren’t rude, just a little shocked xD I am in Sydney, I work just down the quay from here. In fact I’m walking by right now! You will have to visit again 🙂

      1. Oh cool! I stayed at the YHA at the Rocks when I was in Sydney so walking around the quay was one of my favourite things to do, especially to people watch…haha…yeah would be nice to visit again someday…😁

      2. I looked at that hostel, it looks great although I found a flat so didn’t need to book in. I do need to try hostels more though!

      3. Haha the YHA there had an awesome view of the harbour at the top…and an archaeological dig at the bottom…one of the main reasons for me to book it…but having a flat to stay can still be better if you are working there though..😄

      4. It certainly seems a unique hostel. But in Sydney they are almost as expensive as renting a flat! Not far off at all. So for me, staying at least three months is enough to get a flat 🙂
