I am in the plush HOrizon Club of the Shangri-La Sydney, one of the world’s great hotels. The energising rays of the sun shoot over the Sydney Opera House from the East as I dip my butter croissant into the hot cappuccino prepared by svelte Kimberley. The perfectly poached egg that looks like a white football sits on top of a slice of toasted caraway bread. I cut into it gently…the rich golden yolk oozes out…mmmmm. Yummy in the tummy.
