Sugar fix, anyone?

Hello pretty people! Today, I am going share something very sweet with you all.

Guess what? I went to all things sweet pop-up museum called ‘Sugar Republic’ in Brisbane. And, it made me realize that the inner child within you is ageless… I actually came across the exhibition as a Facebook event and it looked something like this.

I was so fascinated by the pictures that I instantly checked out the details of the event on Facebook. It seemed like a temporary exhibition of candies, fairy floss, ice-creams, cakes – in a nutshell, “all things sweet”.

A single ticket was priced at $36, valid for ONLY one hour and I thought to myself that this is really expensive. But then, how many times will I be able to experience something like this back in my home country? The answer is NEVER! So, I thought let’s give it a shot and create a whole new fun experience. I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed with my decision because it was a dessert art I have never seen before. Starting from wonderful graffiti to sherbet filled rainbow, huge gumball machine, giant birthday cake, colorful confetti, fairy floss swing, neon wall art, more than a hundred jars of candies and a huge pool of gumballs. Wohoho… Am I in unicorn land or what? haha…

It was truly a unique experience for me which I could have only discovered in Australia. Pictures below as my guilty pleasure :p
