four saturdays ago

in the morning four saturdays ago i landed in beijing.

here is a short post about what i did shortly after checking into my hotel.

this was literally an hour after i landed in china.
i got a cab to the hotel, checked in and headed straight out for a coffee
at the 39 square meter cafe.
genius !

the 39 square meter cafe is a place i discovered in august 2012
it's on a tiny back street about a 5 minute walk from the opposite house.
i would have to say it's very un-chinese. it would fit in perfectly
in london or new york.
if you're ever in beijing i would recommend you search out this tiny
little cafe. it's stylish and also does great coffee, other drinks and food.

i collect bearbricks. you know that.
i have some pretty rare pieces but these lads are something else.
rightly they were behind glass.

i don't think i know of a cafe with better art on display

these are solid wood 400% bearbricks.

although i remained on london time for the weekend
i figured it was late breakfast-y time in beijing so i ordered this.
although it seems a little inappropriate to be served on a fish shaped dish.

it was described as a blueberry lassi waffle.
there was only one word for it...

magic darts !

tied up dog alert.
this was the cafe owner's dog.
he seemed to want some waffle.

he had no chance.

after being untied, the owner let me photograph his dog properly.

( i mean after the dog was untied )

it's a tiny little place. i'm no expert but i'd wager it's under 40 square meters 
in size.

what ?
