Ten years ago we made a stop-over in Singapore with the boys on our way to visit relatives in Perth. The one thing we had on our list to do was to take high tea at Radffles Hotel. This was tea in the true English tradition. In addition to the sandwiches, scones & clotted cream, lemon meringue pie and home-made ice cream the eastern influence was evident. This comprised tables laid with Indian, Chinese and Malay dishes all presented in a buffet style with plates cleared from our table each time we made another visit to the buffet.
Unfortunately our visit this year was disappointing. The choice is of food is considerably reduced and the price has increased.
