When typhoons visit on the weekend dumping any outdoor plans in the bin, what does one do? Ladies have High Tea. Loose-leaved Earl Grey, with lovely scones from Il Bel Paese, accompanied by clotted cream and rose petal preserve from the Mandarin Oriental. Simply a match made in heaven.
Other highlights were the Quiche Lorraine, Chocolate truffle cake and Hazelnut cake from the patisserie at Agnes B le pain grille.
What a decadent afternoon, tucked in air-conditioned indoors, drowning in sugar, caffeine and great conversation. Just perfect... even Jack the Sheltie agreed.
