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. :)

Your food photography is superb. What camera are you using?

(I'm gonna be really mad if you're getting results like this by using that flat little camera in the Hello Kitty case)

Yes, unfortunately, it was my Hello Kitty iPhone (3GS). :P But the biggest credit goes to excellent daylight and the Camera+ app (for the nice filters to boost the colours).

Hi babe, nice pompons you have! :)
In your opinion, do you think Sorbet or Pivoine is nicer?
Thanks :)

Hi there!

Thank you sweetie. I love both actually! It really depends on your preference - do you want something more 'pop' or something more neutral? Sorbet is an awesome splash of colour while Pivoine is very laid back. I would say Pivoine is more versatile, but it's hard to say which is nicer! I do prefer Pivoine's leather though. It is a little more substantial than Sorbet's. Good luck with your decision! :)

Thank you for taking time to reply me! I have seen Pivoine irl and find that it is pretty, a unique pink! But have not seen Sorbet and it seems to be a more popular colour. Hope to be able own these 2 pinks like you.. Hee! Cheers :D

You're most welcome! Yes, best to have both if you love pinks! :)

btw, don't you like giant hardware at all? not sure if the pinks go well with RH or GH more..

Nope, I'm an RH girl! :) I like the understated look, not so much into the bling.
