When I was younger, I couldn’t quite understand why other people liked studying outside. Wasn’t it quieter and more conducive at home? How can you focus when there’s like a million people surrounding you?
Well I haven’t quite gotten my head around the idea of hanging about at Macs. The aroma of fast food that soon turns into an oily stench that seamlessly intertwines itself with the cotton fibres of your clothes… aka you smell like crap…. or the screams of elation followed by cries of dissatisfaction of the denial of the last french fry by the fat kid at the next table… that used to be me btw... No, no and no thank you.
However, now as an adult, I can understand why being somewhere besides home and work, might be a better option for your mind and soul.
I learnt that I can never really get anything done at home because it is too comfortable. I live in a loft, so you can imagine, when I’m all comfy, I’m like a bear in a cave during winter. You can’t ask the bear to do anything else but laze around and sleep. It’s unnatural! For both the bear.. and me..!
At work, I can’t get anything properly done either because there is always some distraction… mostly external and sometimes internal…”what was that Ed Sheeran song that just played on the radio… must… google… now…” . and I always end up doing things half way. Blargh*
That’s why, I like looking for somewhere else I can have some “me time”, have some food and do some work… or read.. or write… or draw…. without any distractions…
When I stepped first into The Tastemaker, the first thought that popped into my head was… “I could hang out here all-day…” I love the space! If M&M wasn’t that small and if I was a much neater person, this is what it would look like. Or actually this was what it looked like in my head when I was dreaming of my dream cafe. It’s white with lots of wood… SOoooo my thing!
It currently has a very simple menu which the owners are hoping to expand on soon. So in the meantime, I recommend the Ice Matcha Latte and the Lemon Curd Toast! Oh and we stock M&M cake at The Tastemaker as well so… *wink* *cough* *cough*
Nice space right?! I’m there quite a few times in the week, delivering cakes and sometimes loitering about,catching up on some reading. So hopefully, I’ll see you there too~
