    Ooh, gosh that all looks SO yummy. I need to start being more adventerous with my food!

    Jaffa Cakes are interesting things! I don’t like the orange ones, but apparently there are other flavors here that I haven’t yet tried so I’ll give them another chance. Plus they don’t have much fat in them which is good for me!

        I want to say there is a raspberry flavour and a lime or lemon/lime. I’ll check when I next go to the store and if I remember, I’ll tell you what I find. 🙂

          Ahh the lime sounds quite nice!

          To be honest, Id’ prefer the Jaffa Cakes with NO flavouring.. just the sweet soft cake and choc on top will do me just fine :)~

            I personally find the texture weird so I don’t normally eat them. If I find the lime do you want me to pick up a box for you?

    Oh, yum! How can you hate Dr.Pepper??

    Anyway, I’m with you on the whole pricey bike thing. My boyfriend bought one 2 years ago from a bike shop and paid over $600(US) for it. While that’s not $2000, it’s still WAY too expensive. I guess if you are a super serious biker and are on it ALL THE TIME, then I could see looking for quality. But Trent hasn’t even been on it since the summer two years ago…What a waste!

      It tastes like medicine to me 😉 I love root beer float!!

      The cheapest ‘nice’ bike i could find was $400 and that’s still way $$ in my books. I’m with you – if I find I use it daily and LOVE it and become a bicycle nut, I may get a proper one in 6 months time 🙂

    I’d be a regular visitor to that candy store if it existed here!

      I love USA/international candy stores! I only know of 3 in Australia and all aren’t that close to me, unfortunately :X Still worth the trip though!

    Wow that laksa looks delicious. I’ve never heard of Jaffa Cakes before but they sound neat. 🙂 And how cool that Qantas actually sent you something to make up for your bad flight!

        It’s a start babe. Since you are using it more to take you from one point to another, you don’t really need to invest so much in one. I think it’s a pretty bike 🙂 If you really enjoy cycling you can always upgrade it.
