Thanks to all these blogs for featuring my posts :)

I’m grateful that some of you took the time to link my posts on your blogs. I like to take this opportunity to thank you all. You guys are the best! (I better stop ranting before it starts to sound like an Oscar acceptance speech, hehe!)

Please take the time to check out these lovely people. :)

 

Burger Joint in Orange, NSW – Mackies Cafe

If you don’t have time to make burgers at home, one of the MUST-GO places to get your burger fix is Mackie’s Cafe. IMPRINT THIS ON YOUR BRAIN – no Macca, go Mackies! (Just kidding, I love’em both!)

It took me a long while to discover this jewel despite I drove pass this place almost everyday to get coffees.  The embarrasing part is it took one of my visiting friends to convince me to have lunch there (instead of the other way round, sigh!).

Okay, I have 3 options: (1) I can throw the unused ones away – but that’s would a complete waste! Definitely not my style. (2) Give to a friend – My only close friend here was away and couldn’t give her the stuff in time. Also I think it’s odd to give your acquaintances a packet of puff pastries as a gift, no? Or (3) Bake the crab crap out of them with little time I have left.
