High Tea at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Axis Bar and Lounge

I am at Mandarin Oriental Hotel again! Here, I have a lot of beautiful and precious memories. Axis Bar and Lounge is my first dating place. My husband was still my boyfriend back then and now we are married and have a little baby girl. It is one of our favorite places to visit for an afternoon high tea.

Peony Jade and Goodwood Park Mooncake

As Mid-Autumn festival (中秋节) is around the corner, there are mooncake fairs at most of the local shopping malls. It is a tradition to eat mooncake on this occasion and the young will be playing with lanterns. This year, we bought traditional skin mooncake from Peony Jade and snow skin mooncake from Goodwood Park Hotel.

BAKE Cheese Tart at Ion Orchard

BAKE Cheese Tart origin from Hokkaido, Japan. They started out with Blueberry cheese tart in Japan. It look so yummy from their website. In Singapore, there is only one flavour – Cheese. They opened their first outlet in Singapore in April. The queuing time for their cheese tart is an hour or more. During their launch, some queue for 2-3 hours! Anyway, F&B trend can’t last long here, so there’s no point in queuing hours for some tarts, since I’m not the type of queuing person. Now, it is the good time to go for a try!!

High Tea at The Rose Veranda, Shangri-La

One of the pastimes I enjoy the most is to try different type of cakes and tea. (It is not recommended to take too much caffeine during pregnancy, 1 cup is the limit. I use to take 4 cups a day before pregnant). Anyway, back to The Rose Veranda. It is in the 2nd level of Shangri-La hotel. The hotel is located near Orchard. It is better to visit by car or cab. They do provide shuttle bus services at fixed timing to various pick up points in Orchard. I took a cab there though. After climbing a flight of winding stairs to level 2, you will see the restaurant as below. It has a very old-school feel to it!
