Brunch x The Lokal

Brunch on mid-week is a luxury. Jack & I visited The Lokal with the Pangs on Diwali Wednesday for a lazy double date. We were lucky to get cosy sofa seats. The no crowd & rainy weather was a plus point as well. Both TY and I had Pimp my breakfast - I had my choice of poached eggs, sourdough, smoked salmon and mushrooms - while the guys ordered off menu. We had our caffeine fix of course, and the cup of black in my opinion was good. Definitely some quality time spent catching up with this pair of lovely friends at one of the best cafe serving great Australian fare :) 

 Sad to bid goodbye to the weekends and the last week of October. How time flies! x


Weekends x Toby's Estate

Weekends... are love! It's been a long while since J & I cafe-hopped. We took full advantage of the long weekend and spent the whole quiet Sunday together :) Since we were near Rodyk Street, we decided to have coffee and cake at Toby's Estate. I've been wanting to visit the cafe long time back but it was so out of way.

Both of us love fresh coffee and we enjoyed our cup of black thoroughly. It was good, and fragrant. Coffee is always a good idea. We also ordered a slice of Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake (sinful yeahhhh) since it was their specialty. The cake, at first bite was okay only... but gets more delightful after each mouth. I love the ambiance at Toby's. Big space, high ceilings and overlooks the Singapore River. We spent some time relaxing there before heading for our popcorn & chips Dracula movie date! Our night ended with Sushis, foot massage & a staycay, such is life :)

On a side note, I'm hooked on The Big Bang Theory! Started yesterday and more than halfway through Season 1. Feels like a good replacement for the end of himym for me. haha.

Good bye weekends, till the next!


October & Berries French Toast

It's Fridayyyy, I'm all ready for the long weekend!!
Anyway, I've been wanting to post the above French Toast I made sometime back. I love mornings and busy or late doesn't get in the way of my hungry tummy. I can't leave house with an empty stomach! This is definitely one of my favorite breako. The ones we usually order outside are often drenched with oil, or either that it's filled with too much of sugar syrup. Noo..not my kind of delicious.

This is yet another try-out which I thought was an improvement from the one I made previously. The amount of heat & oil used was just nice and the toast turned out crisp. *slurps. I topped with some berries, a spoonful of PB and maple syrup. I'm not a great cook but this was good. I bet it would be amazing if there were bananas!

Also featuring a few of my daily to-go breakfast before work. It's berries season which explains the many variations. I love PB with either blueberries or bananas, which is high in potassium and pack an energy punch. Egg & cheese is also another one of my favorite combination, the laughing cow cheese was a good buy. All with wholemeal bread because I.... simply love it :)

Can't believe it's October and here we are into the last quarter of the year. Also trying to contain my excitement because mom & I made some real impromptu decision few nights ago and I can't wait for our adventures in half a year to come. I promise to post more.

Till then, xo.
