A traditional breakfast

F1000021

Some days I tire of the cafe food here, and all I really want is to sink my teeth into soft bread buttered and slapped with kaya (coconut jam). On this day, we walked into Chin Mee Chin Confectionery for the kind of breakfast we know best.

Last Christmas at Plain Vanilla

These pictures are taken at a wonderful bakery-cafe called Plain Vanilla last December, when the place was all dressed up to welcome Christmas. I’m anticipating their Christmas decorations for 2015 already.

I haven’t done a food post lately so I thought I’ll post these today, taken back when Jessie and I were visiting a flea market in the area. The truffle fries here were pretty good, although we were bigger fans of the shoestring version.

Life lately

I’ve been meaning to write a bit more here instead of just scheduling photo posts, but there are days and weeks at a stretch when routine simply falls apart and to do lists just don’t work.

After a week chocked full of activities, the past week was spent largely recuperating from a throat infection that was accompanied by a nasty cough and flu. I couldn’t leave the weekend to waste though, so as soon as I got better, I visited Chef Yamashita (cake shop owned by the former head chef of Flor Patisserie) and popped by a new hideout cafe – Whale&Cloud – for coffee while dropping off my rolls at the photolab. Oh, and we churned out blueberry yoghurt with our new ice cream maker on Sunday morning, at 1am that is.

So here are some pictures of Artisan Boulangerie Co., a bakery cum cafe that I used to visit almost every week because it has an excellent range of breads and sandwiches. Why I don’t patronise it so often now – they took out my favourite chicken pasta salad from the menu and introduced service charge.
