At TCC Novena with Phei Yee

Phei Yee trying to figure out what I’m doing… *ha ha*; TCC through the ‘looking glass’

Relaxing peppermint, chamomile & lavendar ‘tea’; Our delish, pretty but pricey tri-layered (dark, milk and white) chocolate mousse squares

Phei Yee was in town for 2 days. We arranged to meet for dinner and dessert.

We had a great meal at Ma Maison, a place I knew Phei Yee would love for the ambience. Walking into the restaurant from noisy Bugis Junction is like entering another world altogether. Soft jazz and music from the Great American Songbook (classics like Sinatra) in a traditional English cottage dining atmosphere. The place has a lot of FEEL. Better yet, Phei Yee got to try the Japanese ‘omelette-wrapped rice’ she had been thinking of!

I was so engrossed in conversation with Phei Yee that I decided not to disrupt the mood by whipping out my camera. It’s a pity, really, cos Ma Maison can make for some really interesting photos. Check out this blog for review and pictures: SPARKLETTE

Had wanted to bring her to Food For Thought for dessert, but it was unexpectedly closed. Searching for a quiet nook, we ended up at Novena Velocity’s TCC. That’s another place with great ambience, comfy seating, and excellent service. And it was here that I finally took some photos cos the food was just too pretty! ^^

It’s not bagels at Tim Hortons in the basement at College Park (which used to be our regular post-yoga lunch haunt), but it was fun nonetheless. :P
