The One who visited Percolate Cafe

I have totally lost count of the numbers of coffee joints which I have yet to visit!
But guess what..a brand new cafe just opened..
 just 10 mins away from my current place !

I am happy that more and more cafes are sprouting out 
and around heartlands and neigbourhood areas these days.. 
It's really a win win situation for both consumers and 
the cafe owners. I like that I don;t have to travel too far 
for a cup of coffee! and I suppose rental isn't as exorbitant as 
compared to some high end hipster areas..

Anyways... met up with my eastie friends just two nights ago
at the newly opened Percolate ( pls see below for address) 
 It was a Wednesday and I must say biz was quite brisk :) 

Currently they have cakes and bakes from a homebaker as well as
some breads from B.A.O . Oh, coffee is from Papa Palheta.

Below are some photos which my friend and I posted on Instagram.

We love what we ate last night.
 Earl grey bundt cake was flavorful and light
 while the pear crumble danish was quite a delight to me: ) 
thou we tot the pastry was a bit hard..

That's my hot chocolate..
Nice and neat coffee art..

If coffee and hot chocolate are not quite your drinks, 
you can also try their teas n cold pressed juices!

Here's a collage of photos posted on IG by my friend 
@linfenru :)

I am wishing that this place wouldn't turn into a rowdy hipster joint...

The one who visited My Awesome Cafe ( day time )


If you have been following certain bloggers on Instagram or
you are into cafe hopping, it wouldn't be a surprise to 
see fellow foodies and food bloggers writing up on this 
quaint new comer along the hip cafe lane in Telok Ayer .


We just had to take a touristy shot at the entrance!


(stupid delivery trolley got in our way )


The cafe occupies the former premise of 
a chinese medical hall. 

I like how they kept the facade of the place.. 

Check this out! 
Ginseng wine? hehehe

These hanging lights are quite the trend these days!

This is the water dispenser !! I like the quirkiness

Twice I have been there..and twice I found service to be okay...
( have read some bad reviews about the service level...
I think it's quite subjective )

Sneaked in a selfie :P
I was joined by two of my cafe kakis 
and we had some food earlier on, 
hence, we could only manage to 
order a coffee each and a salad to share

This is their popular
My Awesome Salad! 
Just can't go wrong with this~ ($15)
There are greens, avocado, chicken, salmon as well as tuna ~
Great for sharing if you are a small eater~

Yummy !!

My kakis and I always love 
giving one another treats! 
Here's our combined treats for one another that day ~ 
( I gave them some home made granola
and a pen each ! )

I like this place so much that 
I went back again ~ 

So yup, here's another shot with my friend, Vivenne :)  
Thanks Bee for taking this pic!

Quick update April'14



What's that stench ~~~!!! Oh ..right..it's the smell of my moldy blog~!! 
 I have been telling myself to revive this blog of mine for the longest time!! 

I know there are still readers accessing my blog..
My apologies for not updating this space as I have been spending more time over 
on Instagram. Am grateful for those of you who still check here for updates. 
 
Can I interest you in some photo updates for now?
 Do allow me to share more photos from Macau
 
 Took a bus from the customs to Senado square

St. Domingo's Church


Ever crowded
 Ruins of St. Paul's




From Wiki : Built from 1582 to 1602 by the Jesuits, the cathedral was one of the largest Catholic churches in Asia at the time, and the royalty of Europe vied with each other to bestow upon the cathedral the best gifts. With the decline in importance of Macau, which was overtaken as the main port for the Pearl River Delta by Hong Kong, the cathedral's fortunes similarly ebbed, and it was destroyed by a fire during a typhoon in 1835.

 

Sadly , we only had less than a day's time spent at Macau
didn't really get to see much of it.

Popular pork bun

we at the pork bun at their outlet and
not at their original stall.

The Tohs at Singapore River Safari

We have been wanting to visit the River Safari since last year, and finally it happened two weeks ago :)  Spent close to 4 hours in the park and had our lunch there too. We finally met Kai kai and pity that Jia Jia was as usual hiding inside her enclosure.

Ok, enjoy the photos now!



What sharp teeth you have!!


Ooh..hello manatee

 such cute sleeping otters!
 they are quite naughty actually...

Kai kai relaxing away in his compound



I much prefer the red pandas to the pandas! 
They are so cute, and has a friendly face!

 These spider monkeys are kept in a free roaming enclousure.
Even though we are not able to touch them, they would 
still come close to us and they are very naughty!
Look how one baby monkey tried to be 'funny'
with Alex..was trying to bite him hahaha..  and yes, 
I was quite apprehensive posing for the photo. 
Who knows if it will pounce on me LOL!
hmm..what is Alex looking at!?!? lol..
these panda stools are so adorable hahaa
 
it seems like mandatory to order these !
They don't come cheap..
0the baos are $2.90 each and coffee is $5.50!

 too cute to be eaten hehehe

lovely view 


We had quite a fun day .. looking forward to more excursions :)
