Too many twisted saga on my mind until emails I skimmed through instead of getting nitty-gritty. The opening launch supposedly the following week but?? Believing I will fly up-up and away as a blogger, I came over on this Saturday. Upon realising there were no skimpy beauty queens and kings posing in front of the outlet, to bribe (under the table still a norm) the co-pilot, at first I thought of "tosai" and later, oh-well-well-well, a Western breakfast guaranteed to keep him quiet.
Standing in front of the famous “Hartamas Square” (Backofen & For Goodness Cakes) I literally had to distract the co-pilot who forever busy on the phone (sigh!! he receives more calls than the Prime Minister) and pointed to Cafe Olle. At the self-service counter in this similar to most cafes, (wooden tables and chairs and WiFi a must) I ordered Breakfast B and since Indian Coffee was not listed (maybe a mistake, hehehe!!), Cafe Latte and Green Tea Cappuccino to kick hard the morning.
The cakes (so normal at Hartamas) I wasn't interested and the honey without the bunny, no money no honey and also, soon, free honey as the bubble bees are busily building a nest in front of my house.
Co-pilot took his own time to end the phone call, thereafter joined me. Drinks crawled first and the breakfast crawled slower than the tortoise to the table. The breakfast B (scramble egg atop bread, sausage, potatoes salad, baked beans and chilli sauce) I felt we can share but a wrong checkmate because co-pilot hungrily throned.
He ate and I knew it was a nice filling meal for him. The green tea cappuccino I was also impressed with though it begged for a little sugar whereas the latte with a ghost-buster face (no, no, not my face), the co-pilot commented - "tea tarik definitely better - lots of sugar and cheaper”. Mmm!! I rest my case.
