It was a long day at work. A little past eight o’clock, I could take it no more. I was done calculating for the day. I messaged the BFF, packed my bag and walked to Arab Street to meet her for a drink or two.
As usual we ended up at (working title), a cozy small café sharing the shop-house with a backpackers hostel on the second floor. We have been going there ever since we discovered it, not too long ago, and it has become our favorite.
(working title) boast their specialty coffee, which I have always wanted to try, but I haven’t yet as they also have an extensive amount of my spiritual drink, cider. Maybe next time, or the time after, maybe, if it’s like nine in the morning and we are having breakfast. Speaking of which, I believe breakfast is the best time to hang out at (working title) as you can do some people watching of people from all around the globe. It’s kinda fun don’t you think?
So this time we had the usual, a few bottles of ciders, cake in a jar and an ice cream sandwich. We chatted about life and gossiped, mostly gossiped, while reassuring each other that answering “I don’t plan to marry anytime soon” is still cool in your 30s.
I also like (working title) waiters. All of them are friendly and good-looking. I suspect that it’s one of the requirements, which I am fine with. What did you say? Do I want a smile with that cake? Oh yes, please.
My most favorite part of (working title) is the interior design (I am a sucker for interior design, at times, I wish I could sneak in and live in IKEA’s 33m2 room, even if it’s only for one night). The whole place has a cozy vibe to it. Mix match furniture, fresh flowers, huge posters of coffee, witty words and beers. Ahhh.. I like. It reminded me of Revolver and definitely better designed than most of the Starbucks I have been to.
Come to (working title) when you visit Singapore, it’s worth to come to Arab Street for. If you happen to be a backpackers/traveling on a budget/students on vacation, book a place upstairs at the Shophouse The Social Hostel (highly recommended). You can pop in to (working title) anytime and who knows, maybe we meet there? I will be the one with a messy bun sitting with two almost empty bottles.
(working title) is located at 48 Arab Street, Singapore 199745.
