Singapore is becoming more crowded to go. I particularly like to chill out at coffee places and cafes, and during weekends it is so hard to have quality time with my love ones.
Thanks to my friend Phil, I discovered a great new place to chill (in fact 3 weeks ago but only made a recent visit) since the folks here do not have a regular business hours.
Keeping things hush-hush is the way to go, but due to technology, the wide use of social media and avid cafe goers, I foresee that this mystery will not remain a secret for long.
The way to tell if the folks are open; #1 Put one eye at the peephole. #2 Knock on the door if you can.
What an impressive collection of BearBrick toys. I am not a fan collector of these plastic toys, but I can tell that many were limited collectible toys.
“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” ~ Randy Pausch.
Bright yellow SMEG refrigerator to keep the food and drink perfectly fresh. It delivers a class of Italian style and retro feel into this space.
Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the elephant admired for its majestic size and loved as the gentle giant. The Eames Elephant Chair looks really great with my coffee on it, and it will be fun and playful for the little children.
There are some other bright coloured designer table and chairs at the corner of the space, where you can enjoy a good read or purchase some cookbooks or magazines (eg. Kinfolk) off the shelf.
Don’t understand why would someone say that the cakes were mediocre. Well, at least it’s one of the best carrot cakes I had in my opinion.
It gave me a perfectly spiced, moist taste made with a heaping mount of freshly-grated carrots and lots of homemade cream cheese frosting. It was not too sweet nor too heavy on my palate.
I think this cheery, sunny, happy cake would make a perfect dessert for any occasions. The cake was supremely moist, springy, and fluffy while the inverted pineapple was soft, sweet, with almost imperceptible tang and adds chewiness and texture to the cake.
It seems like the practice of coffee tipping is increasing in Singapore. How much do you tip depends on how comfortable you are.
Honesty, respect and trust are the three basic foundations. If there is a need, benchmark your coffee experience against the prices of coffee you get at other cafes, pay as least equivalent or more in acknowledgement of the benefit that you have received from the service person.
