When we reached, the waitress told us that there wasn't any reservation made by us. Oh my, seriously? The place was fully reserved. We ought to wait for 15minutes for those
who didn't turn up for their reservation. Luckily for us, there's seat after the 15 minutes wait.


Saw there's this special Mid Autumn afternoon set and I thought I could try on that day too.
But it was all sold out, have to do advance order.




Bluffing my friends that I was going to meet a guy... lol

He's Gerald, my cousin...

Look at the cute drawers? cabinet? Don't know what is it called.. wahahah

Cosy interior





There used to be 3 sets of menus. But now there's only the anti:dote set and oriental tea set which cost at $48++. There's also a children tea set at $15++.


A selection of TWG tea


We took the Vanilla Bourbon tea (sweet vanilla), Pink Flamingo tea (floral, rose note) and Jade Cascade tea (fruity note).


Oriental set for my cousin, Ginna
(Steamed and fried Hong Kong Dim Sum)

Siew mai with a big scallop. Fried prawn fritter and fried carrot cake.
I tried them all, and they were good! If only can have bigger portion.. wahhahah



The anti:dote tea set.

There were sea salt below this cute egg!


The truffle cream on top was awesome. Then, dipped the toast stick in it.
Double awesomeness! lol.

Curry chicken!


Looks like a lollipop!

Trying to act artistic...





Initially, I thought it was a whole cherry fruit.
But nope, it was just the shape of a cherry, and that stick was made of chocolate.
The taste of rose was super strong... too strong for me... lol.



Framboise (raspberry) lychee macaron
I don't quite like it. Somehow I tasted some floral note. Still prefer Canele's macaron which was closed down in Singapore some time ago.... sad :(

Butter cookie to bring home!


Still in SG50 mood.

Her lame 25 degree angle pose.



Although the portion seems not a lot, but we were all quite full after the meal.
Overall, I felt the ambience was good, customer service was not bad. Food wise quite a variety, creative and yummy. I would rate a 7.5/10.
Once in a while of taitai life ok ar, too much of it... my pocket will have a big hole. wahhahahah...
After the high tea session, its time to pick our lil Valerie home. Together with my cousins, we headed to my Mama's house. 

My cutie pie knows we are there to pick her up!



ok, let's go!


And we headed home!


She's 10 months old already! Time flies right!


Meeting their nephew!



Surprisingly she did not cry, cos nowadays she recognizes ppl.
So, if ppl who are not familiar come near her or wanting to carry her, she might cry...




That's all for today! Cya everybody!
