KTY et al just Gone Fishing
Philosophies can some times lead to the setting up of a cafe. Strange thing to say you might think. But it was so in this case of Gone Fishing- a small cafe with character.
Located in the sleepy neighbourhood of Hillview, Gone Fishing is the brainchild of husband and wife, Kenny and Mei Chin. They left the corporate world for a family-centred lifestyle.
This cafe exudes different vibes. It's friendly staff and laidback atmosphere offers warmth and comfort. Yet at the same time, it is peaceful enough for one to enjoy a good book/magazine, or just be with oneself. Time for work, time for bath, time for meals (If there's really such a thing.), time for sleep, time for friends, time for celebrations, time for loved ones, time for hobbies, time for pet, time for blah blah blah.
Hardly any time for self. Such is the plight of most of us especially in a fast-paced society. What happened to 'stop and smell the flowers'? Don't let NParks' efforts go down the lokang man.
On this visit, it was time for friends. After Colbar, KTY et al dropped by Gone Fishing for a drink.
My order of Ultimate Cooler ($5.80) was according to the menu 'a refreshing fruit based cooler with a kick!' This blended drink had a burst of flavours from tropical fruits, with pineapple and peach being more dominant. The interesting factor as that this drink had a slight salty aftertaste. It did well in sips but if gulped down in copious amounts, the salty tang was rather overdone. Still, it was a good thirst quencher with a refreshing, icy touch.
