Give a high tea
When we last summer traveled to Singapore, I had a great high tea experience. I had gotten a ”high tea in Singapore” for my birthday from Peter and Sebastian.
When we were going to Singapore, at the start of our travel and in the ending of our travel, we decided to take our high tea on the last bit of our trip.
We planned that we would very likely that after 3 weeks in Bali, that we would like some western food – and to be ”fatten up a bit” again… or something.
The conclusion came to be when we came back from Singapore and I had a fever. Due to the fever, my appetite was nonexistent. When we had reserved a table early on, then we couldn’t come for the high teas we wished for.
Arrive we did – in Goodwood Park, which we chose because of the colonial buildings. The high tea itself was amazing, great cakes which got Sebastian filling up his plate 8 times! A fine experience – but not the experience we were going after.
Next time I will use my knowledge from this experience so that next time I will get an unforgettable high tea, that I have dreamed of.
