Finally off from work and decided to spend the last 2 days left in Singers catching up with family and friends plus running the much-dreaded last-minute errands… Yikes! Can you believe I’m heading back to Geneva already? Seems like my Summer holiday back in Singapore passed by so quickly!
Decked out in a fun blue/beige summery dress, I met up with the Imp for a lovely Indian lunch. We were supposed to go Japanese in view that I don’t get fresh supply of Japanese food in Geneva. But after checking out the Imp’s posts plus pics of the Indian food that she has been eating, my taste-buds decided to turn all spicy on me and I asked if she could bring me for some Indian food. Thankfully, she obliged and suggested we have lunch at Yantra.
Quite embarrassed to say that I had no knowledge of Yantra and as I walked into the restaurant, I was surprised to learn of the many accolades that the restaurant has attained. Yantra’s interior was very chic and the dining experience was elevated to a whole new level for most of my experiences with Indian food are usually at coffee shops or hawker centres. Told you that we are creatures of habit, so we prefer to dine in the sweltering Singapore heat and humidity while ‘pigging’ out on the Indian curries. Hehe
As I sat down, the Imp asked if I was hungry for there was the buffet option available on Mondays. Fine by me, hadn’t really had breakfast and after that mini-walk, I was starving. But it turned out that I couldn’t eat that much after all. After one plate filled with a small serving of rice and various curries plus a bowl of tomato soup, we called it a day. Did a quick online check and if you are interested to check the place out, Yantra offers a daily buffet of S$18++ from Mondays to Thursdays from 12 to 3pm. Pretty good deal if you are interested to try out Indian cuisine with an inventive twist.
Halfway during lunch, the sweet little Imp handed me a parting gift from one of my fave local designers. She’s constantly saying that she’s actually a boring dresser but I must say she’s got quite an eye for style. In my opinion, she is hardly the boring dresser for I’ve seen some of her ensembles and they are definitely beyond bor-ing! It was very thoughtful of her to pick out a quintessential statement necklace that will suit most of my wardrobe choices. Turns out I don’t have a necklace in the colours that she picked, so it was a perfect piece to add to the collection. Thanks Babe.. guess where this necklace will make its debut? In Geneva, of course!
It was such a rare occasion to hang out with the Imp in the day for the meetings that we had are usually after dark. She had readjusted her appointments so that we could hang out a little longer as well. Bugged her to bring me for coffee at one of her usual coffee joints – Smitten Cafe. By virtue of looks, her Picolo Latte looked extremely strong. While I opted for a milder Flat White option and one Yuzu Macaron for dessert! Tucked in a quiet corner of the restaurant, we sat there, sipping our coffees and indulged in our girlie conversations. I even played ‘hand model’ and let the Imp take pictures of my new Arty Ring in Aqua.
Thereafter, we hopped back into town where she accompanied me on an errand and we headed off for some window-shopping. No damage done to our wallets but we did spy some really lovely items that will make for a great addition to our wardrobes.
What a lovely afternoon spent in the company of a friend that I’ve come to treasure. Thanks for your generous gift of friendship and I’m looking forward to more of such outings when I’m back!
