Dessert in High Society at Marina Bay Sands

Dessert at High Society at Marina Bay Sands

It has been two years last since I have celebrated Chinese New Year due to my grandma’s death, a tradition which most chinese follows. It was a quiet year, with negatives news on the economies around the world looming in the news since last year. Furthermore, the festive season is on the weekdays, most of the people have to start work on Wednesday or Chu San.

Fortunately, my wife and I are on leave and we took the liberty to get a good window shopping at Marina Bay Sands together with my sister.

We just had a brief stroll and before leaving home for dinner, we had some desserts at the High Society.

Rainbow Cake at High Society Marina Bay Sands
Rainbow Cake – in seven different colours.

I would say it is one of the best rainbow cakes that I have eaten so far.

Oreo Cheese Cake from High Society Marina Bay Sands

This is a perfect dessert for Oreo and / or cheese cake lovers. The flavours are well balanced between without each overpowering the taste of it.

I have chosen this dessert though I am not a great fan for chocolate. Unfortunately, it did not really suits my tastebud and I had to down it with my affogato in order to finish the entire cake.

Enjoy a Cup of Aromatic Coffee with Your Pet Dog at Sun Ray Cafe

Feeling bored at home with your dog in the lazy Sunday afternoon ? You can try going to Sun Ray Cafe. It is actually along the same street as The Coffee Daily which actually serves coffee as well. The difference is that at Sun Ray Cafe, they have a designated indoor air-conditioned area where you can dine together with your dog ! No worries, they are not serving dog food on the dining table to their masters.

I had just finished a late lunch at Serangoon Gardens’ Sushi Tei and decided to go for a short coffee break to digest my heavy lunch. I was always the lover for Long Black, while my girlfriend and sister ordered for hot Latte and Cappuccino respectively. Though being a coffee-lover, the type of coffee which they were serving were much “technical” and would requires great knowledge to understand the appreciation of coffee tasting. Nevertheless, just enjoy the lazy afternoon with a cup of aromatic coffee along the outdoor area and watch the mischievous dog exploring the indoor dining area with great curiosity. aww.. got to study for my RES Property Exams ….

Conclusion

If you like to learn more about coffee, Sun Ray Cafe is definitely a good place you can visit, while the only downside is getting a car park lot. Dog lovers should really try bringing your dog out for their territory exploration !

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar at Vivocity

Before I start writing a blog post regarding Max Brenner at Vivocity, I read many others reviews from many sites and there was many negative reviews on hungrygowhere.com. I thought I was just too sensitive over their service, but I think I was not wrong.

In fact, my first encounter with Max Brenner was during my stay in Melbourne Australia for my sister’s graduation ceremony. They shown a lot of creativity in making of chocolate-based drinks and desserts which was I thought it was quite unique. Of course it is a good thing that we are able to enjoy Max Brenner, but I think they lack of quality customer services which might just ruin their names.

Banana Split

I was suppose to have a lunch appointment with my other three friends that just came back from overseas, but I overslept and missed my appointment. They chosen a Max Brenner for deserts and coffee while waiting for my arrival.

When I reached, just nice that my friend’s waffle banana split arrived. It looks good on the plating, but tasting it proven too much sweetness for me. My girl friend and I decided to have a cup of coffee before leaving for our dinner. However, while we enter the cafe till I sit down and tasted my friend’s banana split, no waiter actually approach us with a menu and until we requested for it. What I can see is a poor management in the cafe where all the staff is running around, unsure of their tasks. Finally, we managed to order our drinks which took more than 15 minutes to deliver to us and that was when one of my friend suddenly asked “Where is my cake ?” She ordered the cake even before our arrival but was not being serve to her yet. Since that we are leaving after my drink, she already thought it cancelling the order.

Table full of cups and cups….

But what really leaves me in disgust is their cleanliness. On the table that is facing right in front of me what the sight which most of the consumers would not like to see. I am not sure of their standards, but I definitely think that they really need to buck up more on their services and cleanliness. Really hope that they will buck up on their services.

By the way, we paid about $50 for 4 beverages and 1 dessert, the waitress remembered my friend’s cake before we are paying and ask for a minute for it to be served. But why should we give her another minute when we have already waited for 45 minutes ?

Late Evening Coffee Chill at The Coffee Daily

the coffee daily shopfront

Three more weeks before our first RES exam and I have buried myself inside the notes together with my girl friend at home for a hardcore studying the entire day. After a hard day of intense studying, we decided to give ourselves a short break away from the notes and enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee (both of us are coffee freaks). I surfed the net and saw Oh Nom Nom Nom’s blog introducing The Coffee Daily at Brighton Crescent. We decided to try our luck.

I was driving casually into Serangoon Gardens and the sudden crave for desserts drawn both of us into the Hawker and while I enjoyed my Ice-Kachang, my girl friend opted for Ice Jelly, but we still lack of caffeine boost. We decided to look around again to find a nice place for coffee. While I was leaving and on my way out of Serangoon Gardens, we saw the Sun Ray Cafe, brightly lit signboard attracts us and we thought it might be a good place to chill. Parking spaces was limited and I had to turn into the road to find a parking lot and out of sudden, we saw The Coffee Daily, which was like couple of metres away from Sun Ray Cafe. That was our choice.

Entering the cafe, we are greeted by a guy which I believed that to be Alex as mentioned in Oh Nom Nom Nom’s blog. Two things caught my girl friend attention almost immediate; the molten lava cake and the rainbow cake. As expected, molten lava cake was chosen and I settled down with a Long Black while she went for her usual Cafe Latte.

Amazingly, the molten lava cake was better than expected. It was agreed between both of us that it was the best lava cake which we have eaten in Singapore.

Once you sliced down a corner of the cake, melted chocolate oozed out smoothly and when coupled with their vanilla ice cream, it is heavenly delicious ! I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but I was able to digest the cake as it was not that sweet.

Food is nice, ambience is good as well, but the coffee lack of aroma and tasted too acidic. This was the only disappointing moment. Somehow it seems to me that they are focusing more on the cakes than the coffee.

Anyway, I will be back soon as we are going to try the rainbow cake the next time round.
