High Tea at Rose Veranda @ Shangri-la Hotel
It has become almost a monthly affair that the "Multiply" clique will meet up with one another for either high-tea or lunch. If any of our friends' birthday fall on the same month, we will also hold the birthday celebration for the birthday gal(s) at the same time. This month, we went to Rose Veranda at Shangri-la Hotel for a high-tea session and also to celebration a friend's birthday.
We made reservation for the first seating at 11.30am, which is the normal high-tea buffet. If you choose the second seating at 3pm, it will be those traditional English high-tea.
(Please check when making reservation to confirm).

The Rose Veranda is located at the second level.
Very comfy sofa and cushion.
The 3 kids who were with us for this high-tea.
We were being served a glass of "welcome tea".
Love the pretty tea-cup set.
They have a wide selection of TWG tea. The maroon velvet menu is rather thick and it took us quite a while to browse through the whole menu. In the end, all of us still chose the tea from the first page - their top 10 favourite tea. I chose the "Geisha Blossom Tea". We were allowed to choose only 1 type of tea each.
My first plate of starters....
Followed by some seafood...
Lentil Soup was served to us by the staff. I don't really know how to appreciate this, don't like :(
Little boy showing some temper.
Vanilla Sorbet topped with some jelly stuff were served to us.
The dessert spread. I was too full to try any of these.
Chocolate Fondue - A wide spread of items to be dipped into the fondue, including erm.. chocolate balls? Double-chocolate balls then..
I took a sesame mochi ball. Quite nice.
I quite liked it but my friend found it a bit too sweet.
Complimentary birthday cake for the birthday gal.
Group photo - Another good celebration :)
Total bill was $280, that is $40 per pax after DBS 15% discount. The manager also gave us 4 x $20 return voucher (Mothers' Day Promotion) which could be utilized at any of the cafe or restaurants in Shangri-la. Seemed like a really good deal right?
