Hubs and I - Fullerton Bay Hotel High Tea

Hubs and I were doing a research on Hotels as we are designing one in China. So that weekend we visited the Shangri La, Fullerton and Ritz Carlton. Next on the list will be Capella but we are taking our time to get there since it's across the sea.

By the time we visited Fullerton, i was so tempted with their afternoon tea set because I chanced on their 3 tier cake stand and I saw a group of chi-chi mothers chit chatting with 2 strollers by the side. I went WOW.

Enough said, here's my verdict on the afternoon tea set.
It's $43 per person (price not inclusive of GST and service charge yet)
Their speciality teas from TWG is Happy Birthday and Silver Moon, both we tried.
I must say I love their Happy Birthday because it's so fruity and fragrant even though it wasn't my birthday..but makes me wanna celebrate!!!

me in the teapot reflection


scones, jam and clotted cream
love their buttery scones with Jam and clotted cream. The scones were warm when they were served.
The tea came first and we were told to let it sit for awhile first before the scones.
I only wished that the jam had some fruits in it for their extra oomph bite to it.
Happy Birthday Tea
It's a blend of mild black tea with a festive mélange of sweet red berries and a touch of vanilla.

 2nd tier
sandwiches: 
they have egg mayo (what is so special about this??)
cucumber and cheese (again, nothing special at all)
The rest in the photo above:
pumpkin (not nice),  Smoke duck - Not bad
Bottom Tier
hazelnut chocolate - we skipped this cos we were quite full.
apple pie, too much pastry and too little apple sauce with bites.
Strawberry lemon tart - Not bad. 
Kueh lapis - not bad too!
Top Tier:
Macaroon - too sweet for my liking but then again, all macaroons are sinfully sweet.
Oreo cheesecake - ok, can do
Green Tea with Jam - erm. Not to my liking.
The one with the cranberry on top - seriously i have no idea what i'm eating.
Creme bulee - ok.

Salmon in a cone - Hubs favourite, he had 6 of these. 
Blue cheese - one is enough
otah on bread - not bad, reminiscence of local taste.
one of those rare moments where we get to spend one afternoon just by ourselves in sg.
hmm.
after 2 hours,
i'm starting to miss my son already.
