Cafe Hopper @ Tiong Bahru Bakery, Raffles City

After our breakfast, my friend and I decided to drop by Tiong Bahru Bakery for dessert or just some pastries and coffee. Love coffee time with friends, especially when we have so much to talk about and share. Sometimes I see coffee as a connection between people. It helps to connect us with one another and adding flavour to conversations. I am so glad that this week I had two ‘coffee connections’. Was with another friend at Starbucks, JEM, on Saturday after a whole day of work. Really feel very great about that connection. Connections always result in some reactions. Once you start to connect something, there is always an effect. I certainly hope that all these connections will lead me to something wonderful and bliss.

Back to my friend at Tiong Bahru Bakery. We had a short but pretty deep conversation about being griped by our past. Like it or not we are some how affected by what happened before. Memories of our past can sometimes make us lose connection of the present. When we lost that connection to the present we may find it difficult to move on into the future. It’s so easy to just pretend that nothing happened before, but the reality is that they happened and will leave tattoo mark in our mind.

We didn’t have any conclusion to our conversation but at least it helps to sort of settle come thing in our hearts. Sometimes the taste of the food reflects the connection we have with one another. We ordered a lemon calamansi tart and trust me its pretty sour…and yes sometimes memories can be that sour and leave a strong after taste. But there is always a sting of sweetness somewhere. I guess that is what life is all about….flavouring…
