V Tea Room, Esplanade, Singapore.

Vanilla Room, Playground, Bangkok.

Playground, Sukhumvit Soi 55, Thonglor 18/20, Bangkok.

Last weekend, Wisnu sprang a surprise on me when he text--while I was having a game of beach volleyball at Siloso Beach--to say he was boarding the next TG flight to Singapore. Coming from a wedding in Jakarta, he was in town for just two nights before zipping off to Bangkok. I decided to play the gracious host since his good friend, Hata, gave me a fabulous tour and even greater memories of Yogyakarta last summer. (Bali was magic.) Trapped in the rain, we ended up lunching at Harbourfront instead of going to Sentosa. I ordered yongtaufoo and fried carrot cake, which turned out to be more than we could finish, since he already had a serving of chicken rice. No idea if he liked it. ;)

Exasperated by my inability to speak Bahasa Indonesia, I thought it wise to bring him on a visually-stimulating tour rather than one steeped in conversations and personal experience/anecdotes. Orchard Road was the obvious choice, where he piled on kitschy souvenirs screaming Singapore. Esplanade’s durian glory was another Kodak moment; so I helped him snap lots. We finally wound up at the V Tea Room, which reminded me of a Sunday afternoon back in April. At the wicked multi-label store called Playground in Bangkok, I brought my host, Chad, and his British guests to brunch at its ground floor café called Vanilla Room, which was not only charmingly Victorian (old school design and attendants in matron uniforms blew me away) but also deliciously chocolate. Back at the V Tea Room/Esplanade, I ran through the Bangkok images in the deep recesses of my memory as we sipped our caffé(s) in relative silence, watching the rain beat down the streets of One Raffles Boulevard.
