Afternoon Tea Birthday Celebration

Gosh, I am delaying post again. I am really very sorry about the delaying posts due to my very hectic time table which I could hardly cope or breathe through it. You will never believe how terrible my lectures and lab sessions are! I have lectures or labs from 8am to 6pm DAILY! In between, there are only 1 or 2 hours lunch break. At most only 3 hours break a day. Imagine how horrible it is and I am exhausted after classes (don’t think about revising and doing reports or homework anymore!!!). Honestly, I have the feeling that working is more enjoyable and relaxing than studying. Sigh sigh sigh…

Back on food, I think I really have to make this posted up quick and fast before getting “nags” by my 2 best-besties, Wen Ching and Ting Fang. It was after 2 days after my birthday, both of my best-besties brought me out for a belated birthday celebration. At first we planned to have a lunch together but ended up with an afternoon tea celebration for me!

Wen Ching and Esiong have choosen the place for us. We, who are the big fans of Green Tea agreed to have a drink in Ochacha which is located in The Gardens (near Isetan side).









The interior is green in colour suits the theme of Ochacha very much. It is just simple and refreshing.



Wen Ching had a warm Latte Signature Premium, where it was the Matcha (Green Tea) in steamed milk.


As for Esiong, he had himself a cuppa of Freezie Cream Matcha Blended with Ice. That was indded a good choice for a rather warm atmosphere in here. (Yes, it was a little warm at where we sat.)




For me, the main character of the day (HaHa!) had the Mondo Almond where it was a warm beverage which only tasted this good with matcha and powdered Almond. It was a great combination that I fancied.




Ting Fang then had herself a cuppa of Silk Matcha with Soy Milk with the caption, Indulgence without guilt. It was nice too but I do prefer the Mondo Almond and Latte Signature Premium. All the same looks? Yes, All the hot beverages had almost the same appearance but in tasted very differently.

They also treated me with 2 slices of cake, Azuki (the signature and recommended cake) and Strawberry Matcha Cake.






Strawberry Matcha Cake was layered with fresh strawberry in between each layer of green tea based sponge cake. It was fresh and sourish in taste. Definitely went great with our cuppas.






Azuki Matcha Cake was layered with special type of Red Bean paste aired from Japan. It was slightly sweeter. I myself prefer the little sourish Fresh Strawberry Matcha Cake.






Me and my 2 besties~






Thanks gals for the lovely present specially selected for me. I love it very muchie! Thanks a lot gal! You gals are very sweet (Amai-ne)! Love you gals a lot! Muackzzz!



The celebrations with friends were great! My primary besties spent me an amazing afternoon tea while my Murni Gang had taken me out for dinner on my day. How about Suria gang (my high school friends)?! Where are you guys?! You guys owe me a BIG BIG BIG meal!!!
