Last Saturday, I woke up wanting to do something different. The weather was good – slight drizzle, cloudy and nice. The perfect morning to snuggle and laze in bed all day. Not wanting to let my weekend slip thru my fingers, I woke the Hub and said we should go somewhere nice for breakfast.

“Where? Your treat?” he asked.
“Yeah, why not? And I shall decide on the place too since it’s gonna be my treat,” I offered.

So we drove down to Frankel Avenue where a couple of bakeries lined the shophouses. I’ve always wanted to spend lazy Saturdays in one of those warm, fuzzy looking bistros and enjoy a cuppa with yummy eggs and toast. Just like how breakfast was in London. Missing those days >.<

After checking out the line of shops, we settled for a cosy-looking cafe which was simply decorated and had baskets of freshly baked bread at its counter. Service staff were nice and friendly, sensing we were lost over what to choose for breakfast. How embarassing. Finally we settled for 2 sets and scurried to our warm corner to wait for our indulgent first meal of the day.

Our verdict: It was a wonderful start to the weekend, watching the raindrops splatter on the ground through the glass windows whilst enjoying our slow brekkie. Pure indulgence.ย Though it’s not gonna be often that we get to do this… ๐Ÿ™‚

Last Saturday, my family and us headed for brunch at Old Town, located @ East Coast Park, Big Splash. Weather was a killer but thankfully, theย cafe was airconditioned (oh, pampered tweets!) and we enjoyed some family time in the laidback “kopitiam”. As expected, the place was packed with families and we ate in the midst of babies’ cries and endless chatter ala surround sound style. Food was yummy and we left with a rolly polly rotund pouch at our bellies ๐Ÿ™‚

The hubby had the Old Town Rendang Chicken Rice
Wanting something simpler and less exciting for my 1st meal of the day, I opted for the Old Town Ipoh Lum Mee
Sister had the Old Town Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun
Mum had the Old Town Nasi Lemak Special
We shared yummy Curry Chicken

Dad had kaya toast but forgot to snap a picture before he devoured them =X
Apparently, read sometime back in the news that Old Town in Singapore is franchised by our local comedian, Mark Lee. Whilst he schmooze in the entertainment industry, his ex-air stewardess wifey heads the business here. How nice ๐Ÿ™‚
