Review: The Orange Thimble

Another indie cafe that had sprouted in the Tiong Bahru area over the last year is The Orange Thimble.

It differentiates by combining an art gallery of sort with a cafe. I like its vibe; cosy, with a classic laid back feel. More importantly, I find the coffee isn't too bad and there is a small but selective menu catering to different cravings.

It was rather amusing to see them serve two little 'jewel' biscuits alongside with the coffee.  Nostalgia overcame me.  I used to eat these biscuits when I was a kid.  I would always eat the bottom biscuit first, before savouring the icing 'gem' afterwards.  But now, as an adult, I find myself eating the icing bit first, biscuit second.  How do you eat your jewel biscuits?


I enjoyed some of these posts, thanks for writing. I will share them with my colleagues. Is it ok if we include some of your posts in our newsletter? We will link to your site, of course. :) I think our audience would enjoy these tidbits from time to time – they are all food and beverage industry professionals. You can email me at the address I provided.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
