Cafe Guide: Hausinc Cafe
Before I set my foot on the Taichung City land, I was looking forward to a very productive exhibition viewing + cafe hunt schedule for the day. It turns out I was wrong, well, at lease we accomplished the cafe hunt part.
I’m currently in a 12 hour flight as I write this, awkwardly trying to figure out the perfect gesture to type on the plane. If such thing exists. I, in particular, is someone who can never sleep on the plane. No matter how tired I am, in today’s case, I was on the bed for less than 2 hours, before I catch a taxi and hoping to not miss my flight. I guess this is the perks of working freelance, time management is the key. Or else you’ll end up like me, feeling like your bed is going to break up with you really soon (haven’t been spending time with her much lately). Anyways, work hard, play harder. There’s still eight hours to go, and these photos of Hausinc Cafe were found hidden in my Lightroom, since I’m actually heading back to Taiwan, I thought its the perfect time to work on them. Here we go.
在寫這篇的時候，我人在正飛機上，試圖在不大的機位上找到最適合打字的姿勢（笑）從大約兩三年前開始，我在飛機上都睡不著，不管再累都一樣，好比這次，我前一天晚上只睡了兩個小時，但是閉眼許久，依然沒有任何睡意。這幾個月下來，我發現當你同時工作和上課的時候，時間的拿捏變得非常重要，一處理不好就會像我一樣不停犧牲自己休息的時間。不過，忙碌之餘，我倒覺得自己過得很充實，每天都在朝目標小步邁進，心裡非常踏實。因為在飛機上睡不著，就決定打開電腦，一手吃著零食，一手整理前陣子到與朋友在台中 Hausinc Cafe 的照片，快看看吧。
As usual, the effect of a well decorated cafe to me, this interior obsessed head-to-toe Asian girl is kind of serious. Wooden tables and brick walls is definitely my biggest weakness. For food, if you’re always hungry like I am, you can start with a sandwich, if not, just go for the brownie. The balance of sweetness between chocolate and vanilla ice cream here is just superb. The entire experience was very pleasant. I personally love the fact that even though we sat there for hours, we weren’t feeling rushed at all.
The afternoons I spent in cafes are always a blink of an eye, and at the end of it all, I’m always amazed by the amount of work I can get done. A billion times more than the nights at home, though I have to admit, I do spent a lot of time watching shows and eating frozen yoghurt.
如同以往，細心裝潢的咖啡廳總是最得我心。有時候，比起食物我更重視氛圍。木質的桌椅和櫥櫃，再配上紅磚牆，在極簡風盛行的情況下，這樣溫潤的質感格外討人喜歡。以餐飲來說，我覺得他們不管是在鹹食或甜食的份量都很實在。我個人非常推薦他們的布朗尼，甜度剛好，熱呼呼的鬆軟巧克力，配上一大口香草冰淇淋，這樣簡單質樸的口味最幸福。另外值得一提的是，我們當時在 Hausinc Cafe 坐上了幾個小時，但店員並沒有來催促我們離開，像這樣的貼心在近期的咖啡館已經比較少見了，好喜歡這種可以好好窩一下午一邊享用美食，一邊把手邊事情處理好的感覺。
Okay, so its goodbye for now. Let me sign off a while and watch a few movies. And hopefully, for the slightest chance, get some sleep here high up the air.
