Enthusiastically, we ordered a number of items from the menu :
It was all good, but we did not feel the high yet and we ordered more!
Mintea had the Italian thick chocolat served in a hug mug. There are no handles, so the drinker would have to wrap their hands and hug the utensil to drink it. Doesn’t the colours of the chocolate look absolutely beautiful? I think I’ll get this the next time I visit
And this is my Dark Chocolate Suckao. The utensils were clear cut enough, I poured the milk in, and then stirred the chocolate buttons in to melt it. But for a few moments I was clueless at how to eat the chocolate.
Upon close examination, I saw that there was a hole in the spoon which doubles up as a straw. Henceforth, the reason why it was called, Suckao!
All four of us in unison : “Aaaah! I see!”
And that was when the high kicked in and that we finally got our euphoria from the heavenly chocolate. It was really really good. Pure happiness slipped down my throat and radiated through my body.
And we all just sat there for a full 10 minutes, grinning at each other, being all happy and contented.
After our chocolate trip, we said our goodbyes, sis and I headed up to the esplanade library. I think that this could easily be one of the most beautiful libraries in Singapore.

It was a lovely place to hide away in the tranquility, by the beautiful sea. By then, Cartcart was already online and I walked around the library surreptitiously with the eee pc opened facing outwards and skype webcam on to show Cart the surroundings.
Already some people were staring at me strangely as I walked around. But I’m learning to be a little more thick skin
And that was when I heard the most beautiful voice emanating from the library cafe and was instantly drawn to it.
She sounds so beautiful.
I found out later that that she is Olivia Ong, a 23 year old Singaporean singer who went to Japan to further her career as a singer.
She was here for the annual Mosaic Music Festival which features artists from all over the world and all sorts of genres. There are so many exciting lineups. I love it! I want to go!
Shamelessly, I asked for a picture with her :
And smilingly, she said yes, and she hugged me! Olivia Ong hugged me! My euphoric feeling went up another notch
After the encounter, sis and I headed towards the carpark where we encountered an acapella group singing and they sounded really good.
And I started dancing :
What an awesomely spectacular day
