More photos to break the monotony of words.
It is no news that Orchard Central is sort of a failure where shopping malls are concerned. Honestly, it is the place I would go to simply because is usually not crowded there. As it is within close proximity to the office, I go there for lunch occasionally. On one of such days, I went to the Crystal Jade Hong Kong cafe for lunch, and as expected it was fairly empty. I guess the crowds typically pour in on weekends or during dinner times, which I cannot verify because I am seldom there at such timings. But I went to a Japanese place for dinner once, and we had to wait ages. The food at the HKG cafe is pretty decent, but what impressed me was how they served the iced yuan yang that my friend ordered. Don’t you think this is really cool? The “shot glass” contraption that you see next to the flask is tilted at an angle perhaps to make it easier to drink out of it, and both of them together remind me of Chemistry lessons in school.
Thai food is yummy but we usually make do with the pricier and not-so-nice versions that we find in Singapore. I am not particularly fussy and picky with the food that I eat, so Thai Express’ paad thai does it for me mostly. I only don’t like it if the noodles is overcooked and becomes a tad too wet. Anyway, I tried Siam Kitchen at Suntec since I was in the area and couldn’t decide on what to have for dinner. Their paad thai is different from the one that I was used to from Thai Express, mainly due to the type of noodles used, but I prefer Thai Express’ version, although the crispy crackers served as an appetizer were really nice. If only they had spicy belachan paste to go along with it.
I know this is a very poorly-taken photo but I kind of like how it turned out, blurry lines and images, possibly reflecting my constant state of mood these days. Please pardon the low quality of the phone camera and my futile attempt in trying to keep my hands stable as I was making this shot.
Check out the ultra large cup of latte that Tully’s serve! The cup next to it is the usual one they use for espresso, so you can just about imagine how bloated I was after the grande-sized latte. Value for money, if you ask me. And Bakerzin impressed me with the coffee art on my coffee! I think I should forget about cutting down on coffee and tea because I will just end up breaking one more resolution.
