Octa Hotel — A French afternoon

I took an tea break one January afternoon after I read about this quaint little place tucked away at Millennia Walk where they were famous for their French toast and the Japanese-French atmosphere.

I ordered a French styled Cafe Au Lait where the server explain that it was traditionally drank from a bowl.
“Really?” I wondered. But it was definitely interesting as I tried my first coffee-in-a-bowl. The interesting thing is that, because both the coffee and milk were separate, I could mix the percentage of coffee and milk to my liking. That is a nice touch for an Au Lait.

The other item I ordered was their famous French toast.
Seriously, they are fantastic! Well, to my standards, anyway.
The toast was literally soaked in maple and the fresh cream and sour berries made the perfect sweet-sour balance of this scrumptious dessert!

It was one afternoon flowing with inspirations and storylines.
Will definitely go there again.

It was a quiet afternoon.
It rained; and the view from the glass windows were as if tears brimming my eyes, too blurry to look at.
Tea cups clanging nearby, the soft laughter of the rich ladies could be heard through the whisperings of their conversations. A nearby couple held hands, staring passionately into the eyes of each other.
But the cold air in the cafe blew, to remind me of my solitude.
I missed you, where ever you are; and I hope you are well from afar.
My smiles have fade, but memories remained, and I could feel the warmth of your palm as I recalled the memory of you holding my hand.
That afternoon, is a quiet afternoon indeed
