Sloshy Sunday

 42 83697551 1B059811E8The last time it rained so hard for so long, someone was commissioned to build a flood-worthy craft carrying winners of the world’s first beauty contest.

So there wasn’t much else to do (work commitments were cancelled as well) except have a really big brunch and think of a reasonable excuse for not attending Cowboy Caleb’s wedding dinner last night – I did say I was busy with work, which I was yesterday till around 7.30.

But anyway, back to the really big brunch. You can have one like I did at this place called Cafe Beviamo, at Tanglin Mall.

Tanglin Mall is part of Australia.

Accompanying my coffee was a big plate with two large pieces of ciabatta, scrambled eggs, grilled tomato and whole olives, the name of which I cannot remember – dunnowhat komalavilas olives, or something like. Oh yah, and they serve Vegemite, which is da bomb! Vegemite’s good on toast, on scrambled eggs, on the tomato, on the olives, on the plate, off the knife, anything!

If you were to go to this Cafe Beviamo at Tanglin Mall, and if you’d ever been to Melbourne or Sydney, you’d marvel at how similar it is to cafes in Melbourne or Sydney, and go, hey this is really like Lygon Street or Oxford Street, because they even serve Lamingtons, which are little brown cakes with dedicated, delicitated, dessidated, delegated dried coconut, and which hitherto could only be found in Australia.

But then again, Tanglin Mall is part of Australia.

iTunes is playing an illegal copy of Sunday Morning from the album “Songs About Jane” by Maroon 5 of which I have the original CD.

  1. Don’t suan me hor, but Starbucks also got Lamingtons, right ? They taste pretty good to me.

    The coffee in cafes Down Under is just so fantastic. I still remember guzzling A$2.20 cups of flat white throughout the day whenever I was there on business.

  5. Ha! LOL. Was just about to blog about Tanglin Mall tonight myself when I saw this…

    Went to Carrefour at PS after work tonight as is it on the MRT line in the general direction of home, avoided nasty little aunties with trolleys this time, but could not find anything I wanted (roasted capsicums mainly. Also Dettol talc.) Had to go unpack trolley of diet coke, soda water, etc… Wait in taxi queue to go instead to Tanglin Mall Market even though exhausted, hungry, needing to pack for a post midnight flight and all. Ah yes, three (3) count ’em, THREE brands of roasted capsicum! And the talc. Aussies do tend to feel at home in Tanglin Mall…

    & That’s Kalamata olives btw.

    Marmite people – yuck, made from vegetables! Vegemite is KING – made from Foster’s Lager! Best toast topper is with poached eggs.

    cheers
