Coffee and Compassion

I was not a coffee person until I became a mother of two. Caffeine to kickstart a tired me at work. These days I appreciated coffee and yesterday I was at Henri Charpentier, Orchard Central. Resembled a pop-up cafe, the cakes are delicious as they look. A little expensive though. Jessie had Americano while I sipped cappuccino and we shared a slice of chocolate cake.

The lady was sharing her thoughts about being grateful and compassion.

She touched on the topic of being in a position where someone says something that hurts our feelings with or without the intention to provoke us versus our choices to react to that someone. I like this topic as I reminded myself to be gracious and be freed from unhappiness.

Of late, I have ventured into new career experiences and all that … led to a shift in my passion that I used to have for the past 10 years. In time, robots will replace many jobs including my current career.

It’s going to be exciting, I welcome revolution if for the better.

 

Tea Break at The Tiramisu 

Sunday afternoon, Mil was out with us. When she suggested tea break, I thought of The Tiramisu Hero. Mil told her she’s been to the cafe twice with her friends. The owner happened to be Daughter of her Friend. Cool.

My Creme Brûlée Latte was served in a very cute cup. I had asked about the price of the cup as it’s tempting to bring one home. The waitress told me it will be cheaper if I bring home the cup I used compared to brand new. New concept for me. 

Ordered the Lemon Lavender Tiramisu to try. It was bit too sweet for me and I didn’t get to taste Lavender. Still prefer Gastronomic Tiramisu. 


Shall try original flavour next time. We ordered Waffle Ice Cream too. The cream and truffle waffle tasted incredible 😊

Here’s my kids in the rocking horse. 

We will be back!
