I think I like Saturdays. Vanila ice- cream with mango, papaya and lychee was not a bad combination for lunch (thanks F). Anyone wants to join?
Have a great weekend :)
I know it’s bragging, but what should I do when my pictures and text are printed in one of Berlin’s magazines- COME TOGETHER? I guess I can say YEHA! 3 double spreads!
I just wish I could be in my favorite city for the lounge of this issue. Anyone going to Berlin sometime soon?
Saturday morning caused a real dilemma- shall we spend all day at the pool eating sushi and drinking… tea with umbrellas or go to a rain forest in the middle of a boiling hot day? Hiking in a MacRitchie Reservoir Park seemed to be a better option for extreme needs ;) Despite all doubts and prejudices I had it ended up to be a brilliant afternoon with prehistoric animals (which always run away from the picture) and a walk above tree tops.
Trying to dry my face a bit before posing for the picture below:)
A Tree Top Walk. One way route. Please DO NOT TURN ARROUND.
Gosh, it’s high.
By the end of the trip I spotted a few particular creatures in the bushes….
Still in Little India, after a long day of walking in circles, came the time to cool down (or rather run away from the heat) and drink small Bierchen :) On our way to an unknown destination I decided to check what hides behind an intriguing tiled façade. How surprised I was to find not a museum, not even an antique shop but a bar + a French restaurant called Cocotte.
It took me a while to realize what was actually happening- I can see myself standing there for a few good minutes, confused, surprised, ready to say: “I’m sorry, I mixed up the entrances”. Because what was I supposed to think about barber/dentist (????) chairs around coffee tables, shopping trolleys parked next to the armchairs and gigantic coca-cola caps on top of bar stools? That it’s BRILLIANT (after 3 min). Hah! To add more, opened ceiling, tons of wires and metal furniture accompanied by vintage, cosy elements = INDUSTRIAL/HOMY INTERIOR made me forget about my beer and run around with my camera taking pictures.
Apparently the place is known for a very good French cuisine, which we’ll have to check out sometime soon.
A bartender must have realized our fascination as he decided to add even more to this positive experience by bringing a ball for … a free FOOSBALL! No wonder we didn’t manage to cool down in the end ;)
I couldn’t help myself from photographing this bathroom. Just like everything in eclectic Cocotte, a washroom in Arabic style was put together with a minimalistic black glass cabin.
