We went to Starbucks at The Oligvy Centre. I love the colonial facade of this office building and was relieved to discover that the architecture will be preserved when the building is refurbished into a hotel.
Believe it or not, chocolate usually gives me headaches. Ditto for coffee. Funnily enough, I don't feel like I'm missing out. I prefer my candies to chocolate anyway. Seriously, I've been known to eat a packet of gummies a day. But every once a while, I will feel like chocolate, and this was one of those rare occasions.
We got the Java Chip Frappuccino ($6.30) ice-blended coffee with chocolate chips, generously drizzled with chocolate syrup. This was really quite decadent and incredibly rich. Best part, I didn't end up with a headache!
Oh and I couldn't resist pairing the drink with the Starbucks Singapore Bearista ($24.90) which was really quite adorable. I suppose this merchandise was catered for the tourist dollar, looking at that Merlion Teddy-tee.
Update 21 Jan 2011: This Starbucks outlet has closed down, due to The Ogilvy Centre being refurbished into a hotel.
