Since we were already nearby at the Flee Away Cafe, we decided to drop by Rouse too! We couldn’t get a proper table, so ended up at the long table by the mirror wall. It was initially kind of strange to be staring at oneself so up close and personal, but very soon we were having a lot of fun taking selfies!!

Cafe Hopping Series: Flee Away Cafe @Dunlop Street
Today we were going cafe hopping with Ms JY!
First stop was to Flee Away Cafe for brunch/lunch. Initially we were worried that it might be crowded, but our worries were unfounded – only another table was occupied when we arrived around 12:45pm.
Joe & Dough @Orchard Gateway
“Life is too short for bad coffee”, says the big signage at Joe & Dough, and the available sofa seat was beckoning to us. We figured that to have the courage to put up such a signage, the handcrafted coffee must be pretty good right?
Drips Bakery Cafe @Tiong Bahru
We were one-third through the Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail (that’s another entry altogether!) and chanced upon this cafe! Enticed by the word “homemade waffles”, we decided to stop here for a short break 🙂
Whale & Cloud @Rochor
Many will seek but not all shall find
That’s written on their Instagram profile page.
And their exact address is 48¾ Niven Road (kind of reminds you of the famous Platform Nine and Three Quarters at King’s Cross Station in London featured in a very long movie series). 🙂
This is a highly secretive cafe hideout with so much interesting stuff about it, that was introduced to us by G’s friend.
Maybe secretive is not the word, because I don’t believe they intended to be secretive. It’s only that the location is kind of obscure and you need patience to find it (maybe not now, since there has been tons of post of exact directions, complete with picture guide, to lead you to the place). 🙂
There’s more to this place than meets the eyes…
Bhutan Day 2 – Thimphu
[Here is the photostream of Bhutan 2013 Day 2, for those who prefer pictures to tell a story. 🙂]
Woke up bright and early to have breakfast at 7:00 so that we can some time after breakfast to check out the rest of the hotel. We liked the beautiful flowers that were blooming in the little gardens! Then we realised another advantage of arriving at the beginning of breakfast time – we would definitely get hot food! However, breakfast was only ready around 07:15, so it might be a bit difficult if one was in a rush…
Hoshino Coffee 星乃珈琲店 @Plaza Singapura
I was around the Dhoby Ghaut region (for a reason no one would be interested to know) and since we have seen long long queues at this cafe, I thought of giving it a try!
Everyone knows that when you come to Plaza Singapura, there’s always queues. The longest (used to anyway, not sure if it still is) is Tim Ho Wan (cheapest Michelin 1-Star dim sum shop). Then there is Tsukada Nojo (chicken collagen hot pot called Bijin Nabe 美人鍋). And then there is Hoshino Coffee.
The decor is very classic and European-like, with dark wood furniture and dim lighting to give that warm and homely feel. Waitresses were attentive (when there is few customers) but could not really handle when the crowd started to swell…
Pin Wei 品味 @Bukit Timah
We saw an episode of 超级小吃赞 3 (Snack Attack 3) on Channel U a few weeks ago recommending chocolate buns, coffee buns and custard buns.
So we came here after our leisurely stroll at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve 🙂 on this bright Sunday morning!
Chye Seng Huat Hardware (CSHH) @Jalan Besar
We were at this area for a book launch (very proud of Ms V’s daddy :D) and decided to all pop by for drinks and desserts.
What a crowded place on a Saturday afternoon!! Completely packed and slightly chaotic within the air-conditioned area, we had to make do with outdoor seats on a sunny afternoon…
Enjoyed the music, but it was a very noisy place with people shouting at one another over the music. Not suitable for chilling on weekends perhaps? While we find the place quite interesting, it was really too noisy for our liking, and the fans at the outdoor seating area were simply insufficient.
Taipei Trip Day 2 (Saturday) – Addiction Aquatic Development, Yehliu, Coffee Alley, Gongguan Night Market
Slept in and went for late breakfast at 姜太太包子店 , this time getting a 韭菜肉包 (chives pork bun – loved the aroma of chives!) and 雪里红肉包 (pickled potherb mustard pork bun – the veggie was slightly bitter and crunchy), as well as the soya bean drink (slightly burnt taste today).
Took MRT to 捷運中山國中站 Zhongshan MRT Station, cross the road to take Bus #74 till terminal and walked less than 5min to reach 上引水產 (Addiction Aquatic Development). Actually we could have taken the bus from Zhongxiao Fuxing too but we didn’t know that till we checked out the bus route. Not much savings in time when comparing taking MRT for 2 stations and taking the bus directly (about 10 min bus ride between the 2 MRT stations).
