Matthew 7:13-14 with dessert

"Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few."

Yeah, quite right, this is the right kind of encouragement that I want and need to hear.

Apparently, there is a divine protector for every trade and profession. Raphael, the patron of medicine, has been officially assigned to the role to foster the other end of the healing business by the Catholic Church in the 1950s.

Thank you Vatican, you have made my day, please do keep up your awesome collaboration with science.

Tremendously brief food review: Kapiti Chocolate Dipped Vanilla Sticks

 Photo credit:

I have made verbal recommendations to many before this and I feel the need to write it down.

What is exceptional is the generous chocolate coating on the outside. Most large ice cream makers opt to use dodgy substitutes for cocca and butter, on the assumptions that average taste buds will be frozen numb and fail. Well, they are very mistaken, and this is proof of real chocolate making a difference.

The ice cream inside is also top quality vanilla crème with authentic Madagascar vanilla, however it would not have worked so wonderfully without the shell. This delight comes in two versions: 105ml single pack (Street price $3) and 6x60ml box set (usually goes for $8+, however Pak n'Save in Sylvia Park currently has deal at $6.9). I highly recommend the latter not only for the better value, but also the fact that you get a higher chocolate-to-icecream ratio thanks to Euclid, making it a more memorable experience.

This is the smaller 60ml serving; the 105ml variety is more like a chocolate fish. 

Thanks for reading, I plan to have at least one everyday before they cut back on the coating, or lest my arteries turn to porridge. Did you know that atheromas start to develop in everybody's arteries by the age of 10? Shocking.
