Thanks to all your brunch suggestions on the facebook page, we had lots of new places to choose from yesterday. We’ll try to check out a new place for Sunday brunch every week and let you know which ones are good.
We started with The Tanglin Tree at Tanglin Post Office after a friend’s recommendation. The menu wasn’t extensive and the food was alright with the usual spread of eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns. I probably won’t be back for the food but then again, the best part about the place isn’t the food.
It’s the very cool outdoor playground area right next to the cafe.
It was like a little house playground with 2 rooms, a bridge, a slide, swings, and a sandbox looking all bright and happy. Baby girl was busy exploring the house playing peekaboo with the other kids.
While Truett headed straight for the sandbox. Seeing how much he loves sand, his middle name should be Sandy. Or Sandman. Or Sanders.
His eyes light up whenever he sees sand – he scoops it, pats it, pours it all over his entire body and rolls around gleefully in it. After every sand session, we’ll always find sand in his hair, mouth, neck, armpits and underpants, which amazingly does not bother him one bit.
Kirsten on the other hand, get’s a bit squeamish when sand gets into places it shouldn’t be in. Every few minutes, she’ll make me dust her fingers or remove the 2 offending grains of sand between her toes.
One time, some sand got into her eyes and she went a bit mental, shrieking at me to get it out. Except that I could only attempt to sweep it out with my already sandy hands and all that dusting made the sand fly around her face in a gigantic sand cloud. Which made her freak out and swipe at her own face with her even more sandy hands. It was not a pretty sight.
She obviously wasn’t keen to repeat that experience so she stood beside the sandbox looking exceedingly troubled by the prospect of touching that much sand.
She did eventually join in but it was with a lot of hesitation and scowling. It was too cute to watch.
All in all a nice easy Sunday morning.
PS. The winner of the Miele S6 will be announced later today. Stay tuned.
