French Dessert, Italian Trattoria and the Fairy Godmother

Bubs has 2 Godmums: One is his Fairy Godmother, the other is his Australian Godma. Both adore him to bits and do not hesitate in spoiling him rotten.

His Fairy Godmother was in town for Chinese New Year so we caught up for afternoon tea at La Boheme, a patisserie in an old prewar house and one of my favourite places for a quiet place to chat and linger over authentic French desserts.

Don't you just love the old fashioned geometrically patterned floor tiles? The place is very casual and the furniture is a comfortable hodge podge. My frock of the day was this white and black velvet dress; I added a pop of colour using these pale blue glass beads and robin blue ballet flats.

We had the pain aux raisins, berry tart and a leisurely chat.

With Bubs Fairy Godmother protesting that we just had dessert, how could we possible have dinner right after that, we then headed over to Soul Kitchen, another cafe housed in a heritage building which serves the best pastas and pizzas I've ever had in Penang.

If it weren't for the green wheelie bins outside the houses, this scene could pass off for Penang in the 50s or 60s.

We had the aglio olio, salmon with mustard cream pasta and parma ham with rocket pizza. Can I rave about the tiramisu? It is both potent and decadent. Bubs loved the pizza and had 2 whole slices to himself.

 Happy grins all around.
