Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

If there’s one thing I love doing during the Christmas season, that’s having afternoon tea. There is an unexplainable pleasure just sitting around sipping cups of tea and savouring dainty morsels amidst Christmassy decor. I’ve been meaning to visit Marriott Hotel for its Afternoon Tea as they have the 1-for-1 promo using the Entertainer App. Good to know that the promo was still applicable during the festive period. Did a spot of shopping at Tangs before and after our afternoon tea. What a really convenient location to rest your feet for a while, say if you’re waiting for a ride home or waiting for a friend.

Edward’s 4th afternoon tea outing (previous ones were Goodwood Park Hotel, Grand Copthorne Waterfront and Chef’s Table at Capella Sentosa). He loves going out because of all the attention he gets, and for some reason, he loves people watching too! He especially loves watching people deep in conversation, wonder why? He had an early Christmas gift too, a little Marriott Tang Plaza monkey soft toy, which he promptly decided to lick….

Ok here are the pictures of the afternoon tea. The teas are refillable and you can also order as many different pots of tea as you wish. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the food items were refillable, as it wasn’t stated on the website!

Capella Chef’s Table–Festive Afternoon Tea where you can decorate your own Gingerbread Man

[Media Invite]

It’s my favourite time of the year again and I’m happy to report that Baby loves Christmas! We’d taken him to Capella Chef’s Table Festive Family Tea last weekend and he absolutely loved it! He was smiling and making excited noises the minute we stepped into Chef’s Table. I wouldn’t be surprised, I too was wowed by the festive Christmas decorations in the homely and cosy Chef’s Table. A pretty Christmas tree by the side, and Christmassy firs to adorn each table. Btw it was Baby’s first official “engagement”, and he behaved well! Smile Smile

Capella Festive Afternoon Tea

Dear Santa, I wish for many toys this Christmas and a real live Christmas tree!

Grand Copthorne Afternoon Tea–Most value for money afternoon tea!

Let’s face it, having afternoon tea in Singapore in a nice comfortable setting such as a hotel doesn’t come cheap. A few dainty morsels perched on a three-tier tray plus a few cups of tea would normally set you back by about $30 – $40 per pax. So I was quite shocked to discover that Grand Copthorne’s afternoon tea costs only $38++ in total for TWO pax, with free flow coffee/tea!

Look at this afternoon tea set, comprising fried chicken wings, dumplings, tuna croissants, salmon sandwiches, chicken pies, cakes, macarons, éclairs and nyonya kueh, it’s quite substantial for afternoon tea right??? I did a quick poll of some of my friends and they guessed that this would cost $40 per pax! Granted the nibbles may not be the most expensive of items (ie not foie gras etc), but still, I really do think this is a good deal.

Afternoon Tea at Axis Bar & Lounge, Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Prior to my maternity leave, I had envisioned myself being the modern mum and being able to bring baby out to enjoy afternoon tea once in a while. Reality struck after the baby arrived and the dream hasn’t happened yet. He has however visited his fair share of Yakuns and ToastBox because 1/2 hr is all he can take before he gets bored and wants a change of scenery.

Couple of months back, I did manage to take some time off on the weekend from motherly duties to have a cuppa with my colleagues at the Axis Lounge Mandarin Oriental. The afternoon tea was average, a little on the pricey side given that the food is non-refillable but the company and being able to take a breather from the confines of the house was priceless.

Here’s what we had. What you see in the pictures are for 3 pax. Axis Lounge combines the food instead of serving 3 tier sets individually to customers.

Fullerton Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

It’s less than 1 week to Christmas! How’s your preparations for Christmas, are you in a festive mood yet with all the malls and streets decked in Christmas baubles? Last week, the Partner and I went to check out Fullerton Hotel’s Festive Afternoon tea and boy was the hotel ready for Christmas or what.

Christmas at Fullerton

A huge Christmas tree and sleight spilling with presents and teddy bears had been placed right at the entrance. And every conceivable pillar had been plastered with red and green hued plants and Christmas Lights. A bubble machine was blowing bubbles from the second floor so it kinda felt like stepping into a winter wonderland with falling bubbles pretending to be snowflakes.
