Restless Wanderer

Lookie here!  Look where I wandered to last week.

And I so love their tagline, “Not all those who wander are lost.”

It’s so true!  I wasn’t really lost.  I was just wandering around. 😀

It’s an interesting small cafe with a rustic wooden theme.  The pretty little flowers on the table gives the place a homey appeal despite the huge motorbike stuck on the wall by the cashier!

Across me where framed quotes hanging on the wall.  Since I was in a reflective mood, these really make me feel that I wandered into the right place.

My friend, Ria, said that this is where the creatives usually hang out so it’s usual to see a group would come in and start playing the guitar.

The guy holding the guitar was really good and his voice was like that on the radio.  I wanted to ask him the title of the Vietnamese song he was singing but of course I didn’t. 😛

Although it was nearing lunch when I came in, I only ordered a mango smoothie because it was all I could understand from the menu —

Ria said that they also serve lunch ala home-cooked which tasted good.  Too bad I didn’t get to try ’em.  And the price is affordable too based on this sign.

Oh an you know what?  Since I just really meant to check out the place (I could hear my 2-month old son calling for me), I asked to get my mango smoothie to go — but the server said, “No. You have to drink it here.”

I could have insisted to get a to-go drink but surprisingly, I didn’t.  I guess this was where I needed to be at that time.  The server must have known I needed some time off.  And 20 minutes later, Ria came by.  We had a short talk but it was great to catch up with her.  So I guess, I wandered into the right place.
