Theobroma Chocolate Lounge @ LCCT!

In the mood to be moody this morning for some reason.

Not sure i am particularly happy about the upcoming school holidays either. Call me jealous, the thoughts of kids still snuggled up in their beds leaving the road empty for us to go to work is depressing despite everyone else cheering away (not to mention my smooth 15 minute drive to work this morning)

A picture that says it all, protest! why cant we working adults get school holidays too?
(Picture taken in Hong Kong, a Citibank where the locals protest because they lost their money when the poor bank lost money from Lehmann Brother's products, apparently a very Friday thing)

I suppose when school holidays are not possible for people like me, you can resort something sweet. A hot dark chocolate drink maybe? Forget the "heater" in the form of a candle that keeps going out. After the first 2 times, you could see that the waitress wasn't pleased walking back and forth with a lighter. Oh well, paying an extra dollar for entertainment?

Well after the entertaining round at BV II, i was surprised that LCCT has its own outlet too! Well at least you know you can half a decent drink in the low cost terminal. Ice blended was equally as soothing and therapeutic. Choose the dark chocolate for a medium sweet level, any sweeter and i would suppose we would be drinking nothing but sugar diluted with water.

Thought i might as well go overboard and order their tiny cake. A serving big enough to say, well i can jog it off, it was nicely balanced. Cheese cake with a light hint of the fruit i can't remember and chocolate all over.

I want a nice cup of hot chocolate while plotting against the whole hoard of school kids who have probably just woken up and yelling to their parents/maids/whoever for breakfast.

Available at most major shopping centres like 1 Utama, Pavilion and BVI

Verdict: 3.5 chocolate stars out of 5 stars. What is there not to like about chocolate other than the extra weight it clings onto your body?

the thing i hate about the school holiday season is how the kids and their families clog up the shopping malls. they push and shove into the elevators and take ages to get in and out. grrrrrrrr.
anyways, wow, good to know that there's a decent place to hang out at the lcct...

thule a.k.a leo said...

Yeah... chocolate gives me a pleasant feeling everytime I had one.

At least you can have lesser traffic jam for another 2 weeks :)

Sugar Bean said...

Haha, is school holidays really that annoying to you? My parents love it coz of the less congested traffic, and would start complaining when school starts. But I do agree with Sean, shopping malls became crowded instead!
