Days when I feel like hitting the sandy beaches with clear waters but I can’t? I put these together.

Coffee shots on mah Instagram

Can’t live without these cuppas. 

@CAD Cafe [Tiny but cosy corner at Haji lane with unique creative pieces placed around the tight space.]

@Rokeby [Isolated within the private residential area at Serangoon, along with Wimbly Lu and Cajun Kings, sits Rokeby, an Australia inspired cafe that serves brunch in the day and a nice place to chill at night with some ice cold aussie beers.]

@Artistry[Do I need to say more? Just look at their entrance / exit signs when you’re at this art gallery coffee space sipping on a cup of latte while admiring some art pieces.]

@Common Man Coffee Roasters [The place that totally reminds me of the times when I was living in Sydney. The pull pork burger here is totally delish! Oh and fun fact, their bar carries a massive sign above that says ‘Free Coffee & Doughnuts For The Unemployed’. (Y)]

@Chye Seng Huat Hardware [Officially, the best coffee in Singapore ( to me at least). Most would have already known that CSHH is the flagship cafe of Papa Palheta - the roastery. Can’t wait to head back for more!]

@The Bravery [This old-school space with quirky elements indoor (yes, I’m referring to the horse-unicorn-lookalike-statue in the middle of the room) houses a unique blend - Lavender Latte. If you have not had it before, it’s hard to imagine how it tastes like. In any case, it’s quite an acquired taste so you either love it or you know, just stick to your traditional latte.]

A little birdie needs her coffee now. x 

Film, music, photography, art and stories. These saved my sanity.

Under My Umbrella

image

If you have not been to Sauce at Esplanade lately, well maybe you would like to! It’s revamped look is pretty funky with umbrellas hanging down at the alfresco area with bold prints and colours indoor. Still staying true to their pop nature I would say. 

Having been back only recently, I cannot say for sure that I know what they had on their usual menu but their new one has a pretty interesting concept. You get to customise your own meatballs! There are so many sauces to choose from! You can even have it with pasta if you want!

If you’re not the meatball type, fear not for there’re other options ranging from Quesadillas to Salads. You’ll be spoilt for choices here. 

Oh and don’t leave without having a punch before you go. My personal choice is the Hendrick’s Punch ;)

A little birdie says have a great time even if it’s a weekday!

Welcome To The Silent Game

image

image

It has been a while since the girls and I last had such a good laugh over coffee, tea and some sweet treats!

Firstly, who enters a place having the entire cafe going silent and look at them like some idiots who disrupted the perfectly peaceful atmosphere?! Secondly, one of us just had to go ‘where’re we where’re we?’ at the top of her lungs (haha I love you babe). Thirdly, well, I guess the crowd was probably playing a silent game. I’m not even kidding, there were gaps of SILENCE in the cafe. My girls and I just couldn’t help but started this Silent Game as well. 

Rule #1: Speak really loud so the whole place can hear you when there’s an awkward silence. 
Rule #2: Continue laughing loudly even when the entire cafe knows you are really loud.
Rule #3: Invite that dude from the table next to you to join in. (Y)

That aside, we really loved the desserts at ReStore Cafe! Had the Dark Chocolate Tart that was topped with fresh cream and berries, & the Berry Good Waffles that comes with really soft and fluffy waffles, fresh mixed berries, vanilla ice cream (optional) and maple syrup! (Yes, it’s called Berry Good Waffles and my bestie laughed hysterically thinking that I was being super cheesy for coming up with a pun when I said “let’s get the Berry Good Waffles”.)

Thank you to the nicest people from ReStore Cafe for being such great host to us noisy kids and for the Birthday Cake for our dear friend! (: 

A little birdie felt inspired to write again tonight with some encouraging words from the awesome company (: thanks girls xx #wenthomewithahappybellytoo 

COCONUT ICE CREAM

Amazing coconut ice cream to beat the insane heat in BKK. You get to choose any three toppings from a range of old school delights including ah-ta-chis, nata de coco & chen doh! Oh not forgetting they actually scrape out the coconut flesh and poured the juice into a nice plastic cup for ease of consumption. (Y) 

A lil birdie needs to go back to thailand.

World of Potatoes!

One of the last few cafes that I’ve visited for some good Aussie brunch - Mad Spuds Cafe!

This place spells all things potato, at least 85% of the menu incorporated some form of potato in it. We had the Boxty (traditional irish potato pancake with mustard, crispy bacon, spiced white sausage, avocado stacked and topped with a fried egg along w apple puree), Spud Meat BallsPotato Nachos (crispy spud skins with spiced beef & avocado sour cream) and Italian Hot Chocolate (beware: it’s damn thick)!
