Sunsets, Yoghurts {& an ice-cream that will make one squirm}

On my way home I saw this beautiful sunset. I've been wanting to capture it for what feels like the longest time now. But my camera wasn't able to capture it well enough. It did its best though this time round, but these pictures are still nothing compared to seeing the sunset in person.
Maybe is it just me, but through my years of living in the UK, never have I seen breath-taking sunsets until this year! And it seems like, some people also haven't seen one (read on =P). I was so enthralled with the sunset in Dubai last year; I wanted to watch its full course every day.

As I sat down, I saw a young lady looking out at the trees, the houses and the fresh cut grass that was beside her. After a few seconds, her eyes widened and her jaw dropped very slightly.
'Look!', she said in a loud whisper, her voice sounding amazed and excited.
She was talking to her friend next to her, who looked puzzled. She asked, 'is that... the sun?!'
'Yes, that's the sun! Amazing isn't it?', the young lady replied.
'Wow, I've never seen it like that before!' her friend said, looking at the sun which now contained all the gradients of the orange colour.
'Neither have I... ', I heard the young lady say.
Both of them sat watching the sun set in silence. And there I was too, watching alongside them, wishing I could capture it in all its beauty.


And then I stumbled on to this ice-cream shop. It's not an ordinary ice cream shop, that's for sure. Having read about it on the BBC not too long ago, I suddenly realised I knew about this place.
It received so many headlines for selling ice creams made with breast milk. You heard it right! And I know, I know. I'm disgusted too. And actually seeing it in front of me made me squirm inside. I saw enough customers inside to form a small queue. I was surprised.
This same shop was apparently about to be sued by Lady Gaga for calling an ice cream 'Baby Gaga' and dressing one of its shop assistants as Lady Gaga herself. Totally bizarre.

What do I think? I think it is completely wrong to sell breast milk in the first place, let alone allowing strangers to eat it in their ice creams. Yuck! Plus the names of some of the ice creams in the menu are totally inappropriate (I mean, think of the kids who might walk in there!), I saw one or two which sounded of a sexual nature.

I didn't go into the shop. I captured these few pictures for this post and left it there!


And then, I was off to Snog! =)
Sometimes I do think to myself if I should skip posting all the Snog yoghurts I keep having.
I can't help it >.<.... !
This time I ordered natural yoghurt + apple crumble + brownies.
I have to say....that was almost enough for my dinner!

@ bosnishmuslima: aah =) what I would like is to watch sunsets all around the world and capture them all! Berlin included! ^.^
I actually tried to capture the pictures in this post on my phone's camera initially, but it didn't do so well =[

@Mrs. Handbag Addict: =D it's my favourite treat too hands down!!

@♥Amal: Weird indeed it is haha =/
I think there is a Snog in Dubai. If you find it, you should definitely try (if you haven't already)! It would be a yummy treat, especially for warm/hot climates.
And no I haven't tried Pinkberry . I just googled it though and it looks soo nice!! But the UK doesn't have it yet =( I'd like to try it and compare it to Snog.

@ : aahh! I forgot the granola in my description =P
Apple crumble counts as 2 toppings, so I got 4 toppings overall (with the granola!). No wonder it was so filling.
