Stateland Cafe

Our second stop to Stateland Cafe during our cafe-hopping on Wednesday at Bugis. Check out our first stop at Artistry Cafe here :) There are so many cafes springing up around Singapore, too many for me to cover them all, but it's always a pleasure to venture into these new spaces :) 

The cafe is decorated with much effort. White washed walls, rusty red window grills, vintage fan, vintage old stool, Japanese inspired wooden furniture and artificial potted plants, and not to forget the cute Craftholic companions. It feels like a little cottage or hut in Japan. The cafe is small though, so I would advise you to head down during the oddest timings to avoid any crowd, and to enjoy the selected indoor seats with the Craftholics :p 

| Red Velvet Waffle $14.90 | 
The traditional American red velvet cake translated into a waffle. Deep-red waffle flavoured with chocolate, topped with cream-cheese glaze and Vanilla Ice-cream. 

After hearing so much ravings about their waffles on Instagram, we finally got our taste buds to it, though we greatly disappointed. I must say that the idea behind red velvet waffles is indeed interesting but there's more room for improvements. 

Our waffles were slightly charred/burnt, resulting in it being rather hard and not as crispy as we would expect our waffles to be on the outside. Personally, I didn't quite like the cream cheese glaze too. I think I would like it better if it was chocolate sauce. However, overall, it was still a nice dish IF you just eat everything together with the ice-cream. The ice-cream and chocolate bits compensates for everything that the waffles lack. 

We came to a conclusion: If any waffle fails, just spam ice-cream. 

The first nm major friend that I found in NUS. I'm glad that we are able to click this well, and to take quite some modules together! :) I don't really have many nm friends because most of time, you just say hi, stick together for projects and after the module, you kind of say bye to them as well  #sadlifeoffassstudent. 

After leaving the cafe, we saw this really cool-looking vintage shop along Bali Lane, with two vespas parked at the side. I think vespas are really cute.  Since I'm not intending to learn driving, I wouldn't mind learning how to drive a vespa hehe. On second thoughts, I think they look better in wedding photos than on the roads.
