Having stuffed myself with a lot of carbohydrates, inclusive of that very yummy comfort food mac & cheese, during the last couple of weeks, I was starting to feel like a blimp. So I decided to sacrifice my Hell’s Kitchen viewing times, and go for a walk in my neighbourhood. It has been almost a year since I moved into this area, but I have not been out walking to explore it much. My old neighbourhood was closer to the city and was alive with a café strip, down which I would take a walk every Saturday. But recently I admit, I have been a lazy girl.
What I discovered on this walk was actually spring in full bloom, because every garden I passed was literally filled with flowers. They were all out in full force, roses, sunflowers, lilies, and many more that I did not know the names of. It was truly a day to admire the beauty of nature.
As I started my walk with only half hour to sunset, I could not explore the nearby river and surrounding woodlands, which I promised to myself to do on another day. But I did realise that I live in a culturally endowed neighbourhood, as on my return home, I could smell various different cuisines in the air, as many households were starting to cook dinner. There was smells of Indian spices, rice, and barbecue. All of which sensory overload led me into my own next comfort food adventure , which you can read about in my next post , soon to come up.
In the meantime, I leave you with some flowers of spring.
