Swissotel Merchant Court Crossroads Bar Afternoon Tea

Can you believe that it’s going to be Christmas soon? It’s cliched to say this but seriously, where has the time gone? I was looking through my photo archives and reminiscing the celebration we had for Edward’s 2nd birthday, when I realised that in just a few months time, it’ll be time to celebrate his 3rd birthday!  Where has the round headed baby gone?

Happy 2nd Birthday to Edward

Speaking of celebrations, here’s how we celebrated his 2nd birthday, over afternoon tea at the Swissotel Merchant Court. An apt time to be posting this because I often associate cosy afternoon tea sessions with Christmas time. Apart from Christmas posts, you’ll be seeing more afternoon tea and staycation posts now that it’s the holiday period! I certainly hope you love the Christmas period as much as I do.

Afternoon Tea at Swissotel Merchant Court

Swissotel Merchant Court Crossroads Bar serves a Peranakan inspired afternoon tea, available daily from 3pm – 5pm. Nyonya savouries such as petite braised pork bely in steam leaf bun, otak otak on toast, sambal ayam panggang sandwiches and freshly made kueh pie tee to name a few, will be served on a tiered platter. When we were there earlier this year, they also had a Western afternoon tea set, so we asked them to mix and match the items. The food you see below is for a 2 persons order. My parents came to join us for the cake cutting and candle blowing!

Afternoon tea at Marina Bay Sands Renku Lounge– Sip tea blends customised just for you!

[Media Invite]

How do you like to spend your weekends? For me, one of my favourite ways is to enjoy afternoon tea at a posh hotel. There’s nothing quite like sitting back amongst luxurious surroundings while nibbling on dainty food and sipping cup after cup of tea. Conversation is not always necessary, sometimes I like to just stare into space, contemplating life. You know they say creative people need space to just think…

Marina Bay Sands Renku Lounge Afternoon Tea (18)

So, when Marina Bay Sands recently opened Renku, I made sure to quickly check it out. The tea takes centre stage at Renku, literally. There are professional Tea Masters who will provide tableside service and recommend tea blends customised to your preference. There will also be a tea pouring performance at some point during the afternoon tea!

I had the opportunity to check out the afternoon tea and I must say this tea set is good for those who want a place to relax for a few hours, with some nibbles and unlimited servings of coffee and tea. If I were working in the CBD and needed a place to carry out business meetings, this might be the perfect solution too. I really love the bright and spacious feel of Lime Restaurant, thanks to the high ceiling and floor to ceiling glass walls. The water features lining the periphery of the restaurant help to exude the “oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle” feeling.

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!
