Different taste in different place

Am in Japan for a work-cum-travel. Decided to try out a popular chain of French cafes and was really surprised at the vast difference in quality between the branch here and at home. Each cup of coffee is individually brewed and the aroma was amazing. The bread definitely taste much better. Never imagined I would be so impressed with the food from this franchise.

Random…

Was taking a walk this morning and stumbled this plant/flower. Not sure what’s the name but it seems pretty common here. Interesting thing is that I’ve not seen them this big before. Coincidentally, I managed to snap some others in different stages of blooming. Check out the bokeh effect.

Surprised dinner

Decided to go for later dinner after an early movie. Although was late but it was still crowded. Found a decent Japanese chain restaurant and was quite surprised at their new items. The look is definitely there but the taste is not the ones you get at the high end restaurant but good enough. After all, you get what you paid for, most of the time.

Wonderful lunch at halal-certified British establishment

Was here for a lunch time meeting which required a halal venue. Was surprised to find this place in the middle of popular lane in Singapore. Food was quite authentic British and the service was great as well. Unfortunately, their coffee machine broke down that day so couldn’t taste their coffee. Though they volunteered to buy coffee for us from another cafe should we want it which was quite nice. Overall, worth coming back again.

Great breakfast place.

Been here for the third time in a month. Very nice ambience and friendly stuff. Food is wonderful and the coffee is definitely worth coming back for. Didn’t have a good sleep yesterday and am having an important meeting later. Hope this perks me up. Happy Monday everyone.

Lazing the holiday away

Has been quite a dramatic and eventful holiday with a trip to the hospital. But all is well now and taking some time to enjoy what’s left of the festive season. We should never take things for granted and must be somehow prepared but yet not paranoid and be pessimistic. It’s all about striking the perfect balance. Enjoy a wonderful Monday everyone.

Healthier Lou Hei

Was very impressed by this healthy version of Lou Hei. It contains mainly fruits, cereal and lettuce. The sauce is actually golden syrup. The taste is very nice and refreshing and it’s suitable for kids as well. Will defiantly give it a try in the future. What are the best Lou Hei you’ve had so far? Care to share?
