Showcase at Hanoi Towers

On the 1st and 2nd of November, Tea Talk was invited by the Singapore Business Association Vietnam (SBAV) to promote her goods and services. This event was held at Hanoi Towers and Tea Talk was given a prime booth spot. This showcase featured several Singapore businesses already present in Hanoi, and also those that are interested to start one.

Tea Talk's booth was colorfully decorated with a big painting of a tree, and with many pictures of events that are going on at the cafe. (Kudos to these hardworking and creative volunteers!) These young and energized volunteers also devoted 2 days to promote the social work services, events, and food that the cafe serves. They got to meet many Singaporeans too, who were the majority of patrons at this event.

And speaking of food, Tea Talk's booth was kept very busy with the many orders by patrons! Fruit smoothies, kefir smoothies, muffins, cookies and even Singapore Teh Tarik was served! Hai and Van - the barristers, did such a great job meeting all the drink orders, even in a much limited working space! Impressive!

At the end of the event, Tea Talk made many good friends with many Singaporean businesses; some of whom are excited, and want to support what Tea Talk is doing! 

Thank you Tea Talk staff for bringing the cafe to the public. Thank you volunteers for sacrificing your time and believing in Tea Talk. Thank you patrons for coming to the booth. Most of all, thank you SBAV for this opportunity to share what Tea Talk is doing!

Happy Birthday, Presley!

Less than 2 weeks from the first birthday party, another one was thrown at Tea Talk! This time, our birthday "boy" was pleasantly surprised by his friends.

Carrot cake was the birthday cake! Sliced carrots were creatively arranged on the cake!

 The dinner menu was picked by his wife, who went for a more western choice. There was spaghetti, garlic bread, roasted chicken with lemon grass, fresh salad and fruits. 

 Happy guests! 

 The birthday "boy"

At the end of the evening, the birthday "boy" said it was indeed a very memorable birthday, because firstly he did not expect to have a party, and afterwards he got to celebrate it with many good friends!

Our 1st Ever Birthday Party!

Grace Ong celebrated her 14th birthday on... the 14th of October! Yes! It was the sporty girl's golden birthday and Tea Talk was proud to be the choiced venue by her parents!

Friends from her school as well as those who have seen her grow through the years showed up earlier than she did so as to throw her a surprise. Her parents did a great job in hiding the secret. But the 14-year old outsmarted them the minute she entered Tea Talk. She guessed that some friends were hiding behind the door of the 2nd level! Smart girl!

Sáng, one of the TeaTalkers, organised 3 very fun games for the party for those young, and young at heart to play. Grace's team won!

Grace's dad also made a very special video clip which showed pictures of her growing up. We found out that Grace is such a talented young lady whose abilities range from jamming on the guitar, singing, playing the violin and even basketball! Talk about all-rounded! It was such a touching gift from the dad to his daughter.

On the menu was Singapore's curry chicken, with baguette and white rice to go along. There was also fried rice. fries, and fresh salad. The guests left full and happy!

Tea Talk is honored to be a part of Grace's party, and we wish her many more happy parties to come!!!
