an unexpectedly long Sunday

Last Sunday, I went to meet Kate for our Sunday brunch, at the new cafe at Borders, the House of Robert Timms.

I'm not sure why my nose looks so fat here. I might have been wrinkling it with my nosy grin.

We were quite impressed with the food. My eggs benny were awesome! Kate finished her choice, the 3-way toasts, and she's not a big eater so that says something.

We shared one of the many desserts that were calling us. We picked the pavlova. It was way too sweet... Should probably have tried something else.

After brunch, we dropped by the salon where I got my curls done, to get a hair product exchanged. Then, I followed Kate for an appointment where her client was late and we were waiting in the sweltering heat. I almost died.

An hour of baking later, we were back in civilization (aka air-conditioning), driving back to town for a spot of shoe-shopping and refreshments at Coffee Club.

The iced rambutan revived me somewhat. Coffee Club seems to have updated this recipe by adding pineapple. It's much better than I remember.

After that, we were off to dinner with Mel's friends who were visiting from Hong Kong. We had chicken rice for dinner, followed by a long walk around to show them the area (Purvis to Raffles City to Fullerton Bay).

We stopped for drinks at Lantern, where our new friends taught us to dance the salsa.

Then we walked back to Raffles City and met a couple more friends who wanted to have drinks at New Asia Bar. Kate and I were ready to fall over, but we trooped on.

It was 1 am, Monday, by the time we got home! An awesome day, nonetheless. :)
