Over the weekend, I was in attendance at the exclusive Elizabeth Arden 100th Anniversary tea party at a tea cafe. Tea Bone Zen Mind (38A Seah St) is situated a stone throw from Raffles Hotel. This iconic establishment reminded me of the late Michael Jackson who insisted on staying there everytime he visits Singapore. I was exhausted that day, having misread a train bound for Pasir Ris as "Paris;" and Raffles Creamery as "Cemetery." (TωT)
Anyway, I met up with Sarah, and made our way to the venue. After walking up the Exorcist stairways and into the cafe, we felt as if we're transported into another place. The cafe had an European feel to it, but serves an Asian fusion of snacks and drinks. I ordered Pear Tea which wasn't as impressive as the one I tasted at Arteastique 2 months ago. The cakes were delicious, but I kept going for the sausages(lol)
It was a cozy, intimate affair with a total of 10 ladies in attendance, tucked in a corner of the cafe talking excitedly and going gaga over the range of goodies that were launched in celebration of its 100th Anniversary. Come to think of it, no one thought of putting candles and sing "Happy Birthday."

You can be sure that I'll be wearing this MORE OFTEN than the Green Tea Lavender (lol) I'm not really a fragrance person but I really like this spirited floral scent that gives off this refreshing feeling.
I love the slogan that comes with it: Every day, everywhere. Every woman wants to feel pretty. Having wore it 2 days straight, it makes me feel P-R-E-T-T-Y! So if you happen to spot me, come and take a sniff! σ(^。^;
