On the day I met my French friend I was scheduled to go to China Town to see if I could find a "princess" figurine to put on KC's cake. I thought of cancelling my trip so I could talk more with my friend but lunch was rather quick. I looked at my watch and saw that I had plenty of time to kill before dusk. When we paid our bills, I told him about my plan to go to the baking ingredients/equipment shop. He wanted to go. So off we went.
We checked the shops I was familiar with for the "princess" figurine but to no avail. After hours of walking we decided to go to Siam Paragon for a late dessert. We walked around a bit. Many shops were busy. When we passed by Mandarin Oriental Shop and saw that it was quiet, we went in.
The choices for dessert at Mandarin Oriental were not as extensive as Lenotre's, a French cafe which specializes in dessert and French cuisine. We sat in a corner by the counter facing the bartender. My friend ordered raspberry layer cake and hot tea with complimentary biscuit.
I ordered blueberry cheesecake and Lemon Iced Tea.
I managed to snap a picture while the waiter poured the iced tea in to the glass full of frozen iced tea. What a quick way to chill a drink!
