Fancy a meal among Books - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Book(s)

What can you find in a public library?

EastCoastLife eating and drinking!?


Eating delicious Dim Sum surrounded by thousands of books.


The books are not real. It's a Food Court, in a Singapore shopping mall, decorated to look like a library. :D

  7. Ayie,
    Actually our libraries in Singapore allow a food and drinks operator to sell in its designated premises.

    Woot! I'm tickled that so many people were fooled by the photos I took. No photoshop was used. :)

  9. That's cool! It's nice to nibble on something while reading. I'm not much of a reader that's why I need something to keep me going! haha

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ayie,
    I like to nibble, snack or have a drink while reading too. Though I do put on weight this way. :(

  15. I WISH THERE WAS SUCH A LIBRARY!

    I always read while I eat...my mum tells me it's not good for digestion but who cares... -.-

  16. I thought you were in a unique library where you could get food and check out books. Too funny that the books are fake. Good thing the food isn't fake.

    ReplyDelete

  22. I am very jealous of your dim sum! I love dim sum!!!! I bet those dumplings had shrimp in them didn't they...yum. I don't care if the books are fake as long as the food is real.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oooo... cool design of the restaurant. Initially in the first picture, I thought you was in those University country's library.. But how come can have food there? hahaha..

    ReplyDelete
  24. Perfect catch, nice one for the theme... The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it... Mine's up hope you can drop by. Have a great weekend!

  26. I like this idea of dining amongst books. You can pick a good book and read while eating.

    We have a Starbucks in one of the MPH stores.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Actually, when I was there, there were a few couple of books that were real and can be read. Classics.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cool design.... Interesting! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  29. We have Food Republics in Hong Kong too! Don't think they have the same decor though! ;b

    ReplyDelete

  41. Well lots of bookstores have coffee shops included in them, so I could believe that their are libraries where you eat among the books.

    Happy weekend to you.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a great way to decorate a food court! I've never seen anything quite like that. It's a shame they aren't real though. It would be even more wonderful if you could read while you're eating.
