Couple of things leftover from the weekend: 

1. Dining in is definitely the new thing. P arranged a lovely dinner at Jessica’s beautiful black and white over the weekend – amazing food (5 courses made sure we were close to bursting point), fabulous company, endless entertainment (Jessica’s a jazz singer and she’ll croon you into the wee hours of the morning), and the warmest hosts you can imagine. Can’t wait to go back :)

2. A Curious Teepee is a great place to grab a quick coffee if you’re in town and want to escape the mad hustle bustle of the Orchard Road stretch. Their beans are by PPP so the brews are truly excellent. And I love the whole range of quirky merchandise they stock. Definitely going back for some swim shorts from Franky’s for the boys in the family come summer.

3. Island Creamery is a new (old) favourite. Hadn’t been there in a loooong while and they’ve come up with a new (to me) flavour called pear sake. I want to make cocktails out of this stuff and drink it for breakfast too. Spent a good part of Saturday there with my monocle, after we had hit up Burger Shack to satisfy the late afternoon burger craving.
