There are some things I regret. I try and justify why I missed having the following delicacies while I had the chance. But I have come to the conclusion that I made a mistake. I just wish the dessert gods will be kind enough to give me a second chance. Amen.
Here is my list of sins:

This was in a bakery in Le Marais:
