I am an extroverted introvert. Sometimes I like being in events, meeting new people, mingling with bloggers and chatting with the PR or Marketing people. Other times I just want to be spending time alone or hanging out with friends I jive with rather than being in a big group. Whenever I am in that mood I just want to be in a solemn place where I can chill-out and chat with a good friend or two.
Thankfully, St. Giles The Gardens Hotel is offering a “Tea For Two” at their Lobby Bar, which consists of two cups of coffee or tea and a tower of little sweet treats and mini sandwiches, good for two people.
I invited my blogger friend Anis (The Thinker Belle) to join me. We have not seen each other for a while so it was a perfect opportunity to catch up and chit chat.
We were taken to the Lobby Bar of the hotel and sat in comfy seats. The venue was practically a lounge with a bunch of plush chairs and sofa. It was truly a delight to be able to just chill in a relaxing place with a great friend talking about anything under the sun while snacking on yummylicious canapes. We both loved the peanut butter mochi. It was so soft, bouncy and mushy! It was like eating an anime character or Poring or Baymax. The experience was truly charming. I felt like my friend and I were in an exclusive English Tea Party, just for the two of us.
You too can experience this lovely experience with your buddy for only RM 48 nett. Do note that this “Tea for Two” promo is only until December 31, 2015.
And if that’s not enough you can also order other snacks from their menu. We didn’t have much to do that day so we ordered a few (?) snacks to try. We requested for their Mixed Satay (RM 26), Chicken Wings (RM 21). Classic Club Sandwich (RM 35) and Farmer’s Sandwich (RM 30). We both originally wanted the Deep Fried Calamari (RM 21) as well but there was none that day so we settled with their Fish Fingers (RM 21), which was pretty good. Our personal favorite is the Mixed Satay. The servings of their food were big, good for two already so we were stuffed towards the end of our food tasting.
The night was still young and we were feeling pretty adventurous so we went ahead and checked out their mocktails, all priced at RM 21. We ordered the Fruit Punch , Shirley Temple and Bourne Identity (it sounded catchy so I just had to try it). We both agreed that the Fruit Punch was the best of the three, though there are still a few more selections to try out.
Truly there is nothing like catching a break from my busy schedule for a chance to hang out with my pals. These precious moments are rather rare for me lately. So if you do get an opportunity to squeeze in time to spend with someone dear to you then do grab a TEA FOR TWO!
