Moments with Nadia Pleshkova are treasureable at LuxBite for half an hour only - hard to steal her from work - but we were accompanied with intense raspberry and rose petals latte and their famous mini cakes selection so time was moving slow for us - soooo filling 2/3 of it went home to nurture hungry for sweets Alex
coffee at Nikos Cakes Oakleigh . People you should try their spicy chai latter - nothing like this in entire Melbourne - delish!

We celebrated ... what did we celebrate again ? Oh we celebrated our meeting at oasis bakery . Thanking Oksana Newton for her lunch treat ! Big thank you to Marwa Makool the owner who also joined us for coffee and chat with her specialty walnut baklava which reminds me I should resume cooking with her amazing books recipes !

coffee and cucumber and strawberry juice today with Mrs Newton ,
we browsed also through the newly printed Jazzy Magazine but found only street punks there and the photo of the winner: Raj Kiran was picked up for this one by the majority of votes.
we did not have anything to do on the weekend so we went to Adriano Zumbo Melbourne cafe South Yarra for coffees but nothing has changed
so I am not sure if it was an orange color or us...
tasting coffees everywhere is someone else's job but we love our coffees at BOOSA no matter what!
please do not understand me correctly!
i heard they make the best coffees in Tunis... I do not know about that... I know this is the best coffee on that street and it is made by Italians ( Italian Touch Cafe Restaurantin Oakleigh) -
their latte is smokey and soft and their double espresso is double and espresso enough for most sophisticated coffee lover ... and it is served with a glass of cold Italian mineral water ;
they also add a cute macaroon with the taste of real almonds from our childhood onto each saucer.
it is cool and stylish and the owners speak good, I mean perfect Italian (as no one speaks better Italian than Italians themselves despite any controversial opinions about the speakers)... my friend impresses them with the amazing language knowledge and we drink... and sip... and drink... "and nothing else matters... " :)
well, we felt naughty and we added a little bit of alcatraz to our photo ( or how my other friend calls it: 'a little bit of siska-tryas')
what's the perfect cup of tea?
is it consumed in the perfect company? hm, preferably a queen?
is it drunk from the perfect china? hm, in China?
is it made with perfect water? hm, preferably from rain?
is it brewed with the perfect tea leaves? hm, Dilmah?
is it sipped at the perfect location? hm, river picnic on the sunny spring day or queensland top roof or balcony with the ocean view?
is it accompanied by the perfect desert?.. hm, do I have a choice? probably not! Oksana's Pastries anyone?
// Oksana Newton
Saying biggest thank you to Jatin King who kindly gave me the gift with very special Indian hand made sweets 🦋I so greatly appreciate it , the real King's treat ! Thank you dear jatin Jan !
we are having coffees with Oksana Newton at the Coffee House-Dandenong... there is an owner there who looks exactly like a famous russian actor Азамат Мусагалиев... I was even scared to look at him, but thank god they do not know each other. how do I know? the owner of the dandenong coffee house does not speak russian and we do :)
anyway... we stared chatting and he liked Oksana and me and gave us a free cake to accompany our coffees... we refused to take his cake at the start telling him that our sweets are better and there is no way he can surprise us with anything ... he did not believe us till Oksana said to me: "bloody hell, bring him ours from your car!"... so I did ... he said: "I trust you now.." , started smoking Oksana's nut tube (I guess this is the way people from Afghanistan eat everything - they smoke it) and he did not want to let it go... then he said: "good sweets... find me a russian wife now..." we laughed... right, Oksana Newton ? where could we find him a russian wife in the middle of Dandenong at lunch time?... these species do not live there... wrong habitat ... wrong country too... want to find a good russian wife - go hunting to siberia!. but we made a photo for him with a russian bear - just to compensate for a russian wife. russian bear - now also in canada and usa.
why did I write this all? ok.. here we go:
Oksana Newton's cakes : buy, eat and spoil him... oh, sorry.., and spoil yourself!..
with Rada Tochalna at BOOSA.
I guess it’s a zephyr day , we surprised the waitress in a good way at the boosa coffee shop , I love eco coffees here but alena vishnevaya strawberry marshmallows and Rada’s company changed the whole set to be wowing! New @jazzy magazine is here !!! I got 5 extra copies for the crew ! Buy out please , they are $45 with us $ conversion and international transaction fees !
i experimented a bit with coffees and a random cook book ( think it is a Anthony Bourdain's book but can not say 100% as it is in hebrew and I can not read back to front)
Elena Tretiakova Millinery at Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm.
Next destination : strawberry farm ... we celebrate the other day of peace , friendship and chewing gum
I love our new editorials - esp to take photos of the photos - I will never stop doing that!
Bellissima Bridal, thank you!
at Abacus Bar & Kitchen
as I spent 20 hours yesterday in front of the screen and still had so many things to finish I thought today: "stuff it all, I am going out!" the result was most unexpected
- healing and fair trade coffee at BOOSA ( so french so fresh so sweet so delicious so sunshine! https://www.youtube.com/watch… ) ... when we walked in the boy yelled out: "hey these girls here today for the first time... make sure they are treated like queens" .. and we were... coffee - 5/5, service - 5/5, the rest was our warm company
- our lunch stop : #SushiPlus Japanese in Bentleigh East Centre Road for absolutely delicious treat from my friend... thank you Oksana! all prepared so yum by real japanese people - two bento boxes - Oksana talked to the manager in pure japanese language with no accent! so japanese so restaurant...
highly recommend both places - it was a new discovery channel for me today!
thank you so much for the afternoon Oksana! I was spoiled!
Entertainment Book special: Humming Bird Cafe Elwood
we ordered jalapeno chicken burger with crispy battered chicken, apple slaw, cheddar, crispy bacon, jalapeno mayo, served with beer battered chips for him and
eggs with sweet potato pancakes , greens, asparagus, what was that pink thing I can not recall but something nice with beetroot. (mus be new on the menu because I can not find it ) for her
It was tasty - my friend even made a joke that the only thing he did not eat was a stick from his burger and he sincerely apologised that he was so full he could finish the stick.
We are very grateful Vicky Serdyuk bought a book from us recently and she is very happy with it! Thank you Vika!
