Land of chocolate

Last night I met up with some of my friends from my growth group at Crossway Moreland to visit the Max Brenner chocolate bar at the QV Building on Swanston Street. I'm not that much of a chocoholic, so I settled for a cup of white chocolate mocha and a dark chocolate biscuit, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was my first visit to this establishment, and I plan to visit it again, if only occasionally. Scientific research has shown that chocolate consumption triggers the release of mood-altering endorphins in the brain. The same result can also be achieved through exercise or writing a cheque. This is a picture of one of a Max Brenner hug mug, which despite its slightly off-putting shape, is specially designed to be held in both hands, so as to add to your enjoyment of the drink.

YES! I love that place! A couple of years ago James and I waited about 45 mins just to ORDER our hot chocolates! Then it was a battle to find a seat ... but we eventually got one. Definitely a place to re-visit. Thanks for reminding me :)

Thanks Kitty. It was a fairly low key day, even by my standards.
