Through the window, Jalan Maarof seemed longer that particular Sunday. The vehicles that passed me by were moving at a slower pace. Lingering mid-tempo house tunes seemed to resonate with that pace as well. Perhaps there are 48 hours on Sundays. Or perhaps, that’s what we want to believe.
The bistro was chic, minimal and smart. So were the patrons.
I placed my order. Something sweet (like most Sundays) to go with my favourite Earl Grey.
My Banoffee Pie came with a nice aroma. The coffee cream was light and smooth while the chocolate-coated pieces of bananas were sweet and soft. A good combination of texture and flavour. The crust was optional, at this point.
The scent of caramelized mixed nuts (almond and peanuts) was familiar. And who can forget those layers of finger sponge soaked in a heavy dose of cognac? Smoothened by the rich, lush mascarpone, which was embedded with chocolate shavings, it was a seductive bite. Every bite. The strawberry sauce gave a nice, tangy contrast. But it was a Sunday. A sweet day that could do without a taste of sourness.
They often say waiting is the hardest thing. But on Sundays, we don’t impatiently wait for the arrival of Mondays. In fact, if we have to wait for 48 hours, we will gladly do so.
Bring on the storm! That’ll cause some delay!
As we watch the world goes by.
With pieces of sweet heaven right in front of us.
