Hello, Melody & Violet!

The trip to my favorite neighboring country Singapore, mainly for the Asian Financial Services Congress, was made even more exciting with meetings with friends and that included blogger buddies, Melody and Violet. Ladies, it was really great meeting both of you! Here's a brief scoop on our meeting. Enjoy!

Us at the vegetarian cafe, Loving Hut
(Address: Suntec City Mall, #03-016 Sky Garden @ Tower 2, 3 Temasek Boulevard, 038983 Singapore; Telephone: +65 6238 6755)
From front to back: Melody, Yours Truly, Violet

Melody arranged for us to meet on Friday, 26 February. Before meeting with the two lovelies, I was hanging out at Starbucks Raffles City and surfing the Internet using the free Wi-Fi at the outlet. I had wanted to read but catching up on my friends' updates on Facebook proved to be more enticing... Melody was early and she popped me an SMS. She came to Starbucks to "collect" me (LOL!) and it's so good to see her! Together we walked back to the City Hall MRT Station to meet with Violet. We then went to Loving Hut for our dinner. (Thanks for the dinner treat, Melody!)

Melody and I ordered the Ocean Bliss Rice Set
(Violet ordered the Sambal Delight Rice Set, which was not shown in the picture)
Here's the rice that came with the above dish
For snacks, Melody ordered satay and...
...Crispy Oyster Mushroom
Rose Lemon Juice

After a hearty meal, we went for a walk around Suntec City Mall and look who we bumped into? Not one, not two, but FOUR superheroes!
I love the design of the food court--just look at the rows on books on those shelves! They're wallpaper but absolutely gorgeous.
We explored the surrounding areas and launched into a mini photo op. One last photo for the day: Beautiful orchids.
Thank you for the books, too, Melody! You're a GREAT friend and here's a BIG hug for you!

Melody and Violet: Thank you so much for a lovely time together! I had so much fun I wished it didn't have to end so soon. We definitely must do this again and I'd be sure to contact both of you whenever I visit Singapore again.
