Old School Days

I do sincerely apologise for the lags in my posts. I have been kept up with a current ‘Christmas project’ that I have been very excited to launch/ facilitate and make it happen. It has been very encouraging to have friends around support my cause and some actively participate in it.

My post will be about old school days, since its quite a similar theme to my project #bagakid. (no I am not kidnapping children and selling them – thats crazy)

Old school days  with Old school friend.
Mama P and I were just round the corner testing out this ganban yoku heated room therapy at upper Thomson 🙂 hahaha .. It was a pretty heated refreshing experience 🙂 After detoxing there, we then headed around to check out some of the places to try .. and we found this place as highly rated by fellow trooper jean beanies, so  .. 🙂 The whole atmosphere felt like I was back in my school, especially with my high school friend, talking about things. 🙂

As the name suggests, the place is decorated with nostagic old-school way .. filled with old school toys such as yoyos, or even very antique items that were used during our parents times.

Even the menu looks like something we were all familar with .. an exercise book. I remember these little things that really made my life miserable in school. Only because all the spellings in Chinese and English were all in this book form. .. Those were horrible! hahah ..  but I did take alot of pride in ensuring I wrote my name neatly on the front of the book – serve as a small consolation that my spelling might be not good, but I have neat handwriting :/ ..  ok carrying on to  the fun part of the ordering is , they will give you

Banana and Chocolate Fudge cake!!!!

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return.

The cake- definitely! even blogging about it now makes me wish that I can zoom down and just buy one piece to myself. Its very rich but not until you get sick of it (well, provided you share it with people around you) The bananas, you can definitely see them and chew on the chunks of it. The cake is very moist as well? Its pretty awesome. I would return for this. For all the chocolate banana lovers around – this is a Must Try!!!!!!  ok my weakness so I am biased .. hmm

Mama P complained the mee siam – was abit too oily and watery. She had better ones and her mother can make better ones (I can testify to that).
She enjoyed the roll, something simple and different.

The chicken was very small and bite size, it was quite hard to stop after a while.

Drinks wise, we enjoyed both our drinks quite a bit. 🙂 Their spin off of a mocha is quite delightful 🙂

Nice delightful place 🙂 a real hidden gem around the neighbourhood. 🙂

P.s. Recognise any of the items below?
