Afternoon coffee, redux

It's the week for drinking coffee, I guess.

Olorin and I were looking for a place to sit down and grab a drink in the middle of the afternoon. Since we were in the middle of Katong, the logical choice was Chin Mee Chin Confectionery.

Located: Next to Holy Family Church.
Established: At least 25 years ago, if not earlier (Google didn't turn up any info on this).
Serves: Kopi and teh in old-fashioned porcelain cups, kaya on buns, and assorted tasty Chinese tarts and pastries. Modern canned drinks like Coke also make sporadic appearances.

Although Olorin has lived in the east all his life and I've been living around here for more than six years, this was sadly the first time that either of us have stepped into the place. Perhaps it's the demise --- albeit spiritual, rather than physical --- of The Red House that makes us appreciate this nook all the more.

I love that place! I grew up going there for the kaya toast with my father, and even now, I go there once in a while for brekkie after rollerblading along East Coast.

Cool! I'm never awake early enough on weekends for breakfast, so I guess I'll stick to having afternoon coffee there :)
