What was meant to be a regular brunch turned into a rather artsy-fartsy day.
We met at Artistry, one of our favourite cafes where I waited for about half an hour for his arrival (but it’s ok because he brought a portable charger which had juice for me hehe). Had a nice chat with Sue and Gerard while waiting, though! The Artistry staff are really lovely people, and this is just one of the many reasons why I love this cafe so much.
They had only just started doing this piece of art the day before I came, but it looks great already – I can’t wait to see the finished product!
And of course, I had their Peanut Butter & Jelly french toast! I had been craving it for ages, and it was an amazing feeling to be able to satisfy my cravings! This is definitely one of the best french toasts in Singapore, no doubt about that. The layer of peanut butter and jelly in the middle is simply divine, yet the toast itself retains its moist, eggy texture. The berry compote is a great accompaniment, as is the vanilla ice cream and the speculoos crumble. I just wish that ice cream didn’t melt at such a rapid pace in our hot and humid country.
Darryl had the baked eggs which were oh-so-spicy but also oh-so-creamy-and-good. I should have let it cool a bit before taking a bite though, for I could practically feel smoke coming out of my mouth because it was so hot.
Had a great chat over food and coffee, and we went to buy some dance stuff for Darryl before heading to the Singapore Art Museum (SAM)!
We also visited the new exhibition at the Queen’s Street branch of SAM, Imaginarium! It was mostly about children and their imagination, and it really made me miss my childhood quite a bit. Although I was never quite the imaginative kind, it was nice to look at these artworks and draw bits of inspiration from them.
One thing about my childhood though – I never did learn how to ride a bike properly. Like, the two-wheeled ones. Ooooooop. I do wish I didn’t have to rush off for an interview that day, but no matter! Darryl also told me about a few more art exhibitions around Singapore so I might take a day to go and visit all of them.
