Since I'm finally back at the work force after a month-long break, here I am again excited at the thought that the weekend is just a day away! I woke up with a smile today knowing that it's the last day of the work week. Even my walk to the bus stop was faster this morning as I suddenly have this surge of excitement and anticipation for what we can do for the next two days.
Anyway, Paul and I agreed to meet up for dinner at Vivo City a few hours ago. For those who haven't been to Singapore, Vivo City is actually your gateway to the beautiful island of Sentosa. Here, you can take the tram that will take you to the island within minutes. We've been to this mall during our trip to Singapore 3 years ago but weren't able to go around as we just came here to head to Universal Studios for the day. Looks like this will be the mall that I'll end up knowing by heart if I frequent this place more often.
We got in line and with everything in Singapore, service was very efficient. I chose the plain milk tea ($2.40) with free pearls. There were other flavors like the Ovaltine ($2.90) which I was thinking of getting first but I ended up sticking with the regular kind to test how yummy their milk tea really was.
The menu was simple as they have divided their drinks into 5 main categories: milk tea, coffee, fruity, brewed tea and bubble. Over-all KOI Cafe was pretty good. Looks like it'll be where I'll be heading too whenever another craving for milk tea come around.
KOI Cafe has a total of 16 branches around Singapore as well as in Taiwan, where it originated, Macau and Xiamen. I hope someday KOI Cafe will also make its way to the Philippines. I wonder how it'll do versus the milk tea giants back home.
