~ afternoon tea at wedgewood hotel~

Wednesday, April 20, 2011
           I've tried a few tea places during my absence on blogger and the first one I want to share is the afternoon tea at Bacchus in the Wedgewood Hotel. They only offer afternoon tea on the weekends and it was rare for me to be here on a weekend, since Im usually up in the interiors, so I took advantage of my freedom and had tea here the day after my final =) Remember to ask for a window seat when you make reservations!

I completely forgot to take a photo of the restaurant itself, sorry! ><

~ The three tiers ~

When I was taking this photo I thought it looked funny and I realized it was because the size of the plates do not differ that much from one another, so it looks like just three plates of the same size at different levels lol.

 ~ Finger Sandwiches ~

The presentation is a bit plain here but the quality is a bit better than the other places I've tried. There were no surprises and the sandwiches were the normal selection you receive at any other tea place. Cucumber, chicken, shrimp, salmon rolls and tandoori chicken.

~ Sweets ~

The sweets there were very nice, not too sweet in fact. There were lemon chiffon with white chocolate ganache (my friend said it tasted like lemon meringue), English fruit cake, fruit tart and a mini bakewell tart.

~ Scones ~

Scones were served with chocolate eclairs! The scones had raisins in them and were just okay.....and the elairs tasted like the regular frozen ones from the supermarket....sooo disappointed! 

~ Tea and rock sugar ~

The tea was served in a tea press with rock sugar. I personally don't like rock sugar too much because it takes longer to melt in your tea and when the tea is luke warm, it doesn't melt at all! Not to mention, we didn't know how these tea presses worked and my friend pressed her tea so low that her tea became too bitter lol

         Well that's all for now, Im still studying for my two other exams so I probably won't be updating for the next little while again =( 

Thank you so much to those who wished me luck on my exams and leaving me comments!

Till next time ~

  25. Freaking jealous of all your afternoon tea times. :C I just don't have the money (or rather, can't bring myself to spend money on that) for luxury like that! LOLOL. (L)

    I just finished a final, 3 more to go. :C Yep, think I bombed my first one. Hopefully I can end up with something above C. =_____= (Low expectations)

    About your nails always breaking, MINE FREAKING BROKE YESTERDAY. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. It wasn't even like one of those nails you can fix with some glue.... So I went out and bought some fake nail tips. >:C

  26. I love how I can go to your blog and show bf pictures of foodie places so he can get an idea of what we're eating. lol. I showed him the WE one for waffles today.

    Nude lipsticks are the best non? and that color looked great on you. It made your eyes stand out more. I almost bought the peachy blush from the Quite Cute collection but I refrained myself. I actually want their lip concealer and studio something concealer very badly >.<

    Good luck on all your finals!! I'm sure you'll do very well studying till the wee hour :)

  27. you're so right about the excessive lighting at MAC and the customer service. They need to change both :(
    gahd you're so pretty! that nude lipstick looks great on you! i need to find one too >< my natural lip color is too red :(]

    good luck on the rest of your finals! :3

  28. i love your background on ur blog! and i love the nudelipstick too :3 i love tea aswell :3 (yes i abuse the word love) :(

  30. Cute post :) The food look yummy

  31. uugh the foodies look so appetizing!! and omg you look so lovely in the photo, so sweet :3

  32. Ahh!!! Why why why do you always post such lovely pictures of your tea? I always crave for such tea whenever I view your blog. I reckon that since you’re such a tea person, I would be seeing more tea photos to come.

    I hope you faster get it over and done with your exams so you can relax soon.

  33. Hi deari! I love having high tea ^__^ you should totally shoot some photo's of the interior next time!

    @Reply: yes I do edit half of my photo's altho I only brighten them up and making some color extra 'sharper'. The Pen is really good camera, if you manually set your shutterspeed and ISO right you can really shoot great pictures ^^
    I thought about to get the NEX but I end up with the Pen :) xx

  34. THnx so much for the wonderful comments <3

    have you tried out Aldo? like the outlet on granville? they have some nice boots! I got a pair the other day! so nice :)

  36. The nude lipstick looks really good on you!

  37. YAY!!! Only 2 more exams to go - you can do it!!! I'm sure it doesn't help so much that it's been sunny lately huh? (except for today).

    Man, so many tea places to try, so little time! I did a double take on that photo as well b/c the plates DID look funny being all the same size!!! haha!

    Btw - my sister in law who went with me to the shooting range - she also asked the same question. She wanted to put a pic of her co-worker as the target. hahaha! :P

  38. i've had a browse of MAC's Quite Cute collection on their website but nope i haven gotten any frm that collection. What's wrong with the fashion fanatic lipgloss u bought? Y u might not be keeping it? I wanted so much to get prdts frm their Wonder Woman limited edition collection but im a tad too late n all the really nice colours (there was this really nice pink coloured lipstick) were alr out of stock by the time i realized the collection was alr in store... disappointed but i guess cant be helped, blame it on my delayed action. i like that self-portrait of urself, very pretty, n the the glare from the sun enhances ur beauty:) oh n i LOVE nude lipstick colours too! mainly cos my lips are so bloodish-red, it's gd to get an orangey-brown/nude to neutralize its redness. n i find earth colours suit me better than pinkish/reddish tones;)

    til nxt time!


  39. wait.. was this in vancouver too?! i think ive finally found someone who loves teatime as much as me :$ p.s. that nude lipstick is amazing!

    HAHA you're so sweet. thanks for the compliments! I really like photography & i'm lucky enough that my dad just let me play with polaroids, film, and digi cameras growing up hehe

    LOLS im so jelly your dad has a darkroom! (and no, i dont think raptors lvie in photography darkrooms!!).. haha silly! but definitely face your fear and go in there one day cuz the experience is so amazing, love love love.

    wow your mommy uses benefit too?! my mom only uses shiseido and brands like estee lauder cuz she believes they're more suited for "her age". she always makes herself feel older than she should really! kudos to your mom :)

    ♡, Rosa T.

  40. AH THIS IS JUST ABOUT THE CUTEST POST EVER. I don't know, but I suddenly had flashes to childhood tea parties and stuff. It was lovely. We used to sit around with our dollies and sip fake tea. You know.. Just in case you wanted to know.

    Actually, I have to say, visiting your blog has made my stomach grumble a little! It's probably this post, combined with your delicious header and background. Haha. Nonetheless, 'tis great.

    And you look gorgeous! And GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAMS. almost there! You can do it! WOoohoooo.


  41. O I tired a really expensive serum before. I think it works but it kinda made my eyes uncomfortable so I didn’t used it too much~~~~ =(

    Of course ~ I do hope the serum works ^^
