Pardon my lack of updates. Are being swarmed lately by a series of short overseas trips, for both work and leisure, and have accumulated a backlog of posts again.

Maison Ikkoku is a new cafe that sprung up along Kandahar Street, near the Sultan Mosque. As part of The U Café project by Underscore magazine, a range of indie magazines are provided for in-house reading, including the more popular Monocle.
Hook it up when not in use, a novel design for a teaspoon.
The beautiful latte art at the cafe is done by in-house baristas specially trained by latte art master Hiroshi Sawada from Japan.
Served with unrefined raw sugar.

Can you spot the carrot shreds?
