For lunch, we had the Vongole whipped up by beth.
An hour after lunch, I hear shouts of jubilation in the kitchen to find this magnificent mass of a red velvet cake.
They couldn't bear to cut it.
Although it was more like a pink velvet cake, it was still some pretty amazing dessert they had baked. The cream cheese and the berries together was just mhmm-mmm.

We ventured in and collapsed exhausted on the lounge chairs by the pool. When lying down on the chairs and looking up at the sky, you realize why this is prime property. Surrounding you is not only lush greenery and the conveniences of the city-centre but also a sort of tranquility that only comes with such a hallowed address. The mechanical and industrial chaos of the nearby construction of Orchard Ion which seems to have taken over the entire of Orchard Road escapes you, and that is reason enough for this property to be worth something.
Today was suffocatingly hot. The heat was thick and unyielding, settling on the skin like a layer of steaming fog. In theory, a cut-out maxi dress, silk playsuit and slouchy paper-thin, acid-washed jeans seemed like good ideas to battle the heatwave.
In reality, this type of weather just can't be beat.
