It was another hot day in the city and crowding the sidewalks were the usual array of people- elderly retirees pushing carts filled with their belongings, migrant workers heading to their next job, families with children in tow, and teenagers on their way to the shops and cinemas. In the air, the smell of frying bacon mixed with the strong odor of exhaust from the buses and cars.
I was on my way to the lab to do some experiments for my class when I saw a crowd gathering at the intersection just ahead. Curious, I went to see what was happening. To my amazement, there was a woman selling coconut oreo icebox cake from a makeshift stand in the middle of the intersection.
I was so excited to try the icebox cake that I didn’t even notice the heat as I made my way through the crowd to get a piece. The icebox cake was so delicious that I couldn’t stop myself from eating all of it in just one sitting. I was so happy that I found out about the coconut oreo icebox cake, and I vowed to buy some the next time I was in the city.
