The Point: Millie’s Cookies June 23, 2010

On Saturday, we headed to a new shopping mall – The Point.  I think the developers were thinking too big this time… but then I’m no economic guru. It’s just that we didn’t all suddenly had an increase in our disposable income.  And our population hasn’t overnight increased by 10%.   Anyway time will tell.  And for the time being we go there as the girls love its long escalators, panoramic lifts and the water fountain.  I love it for it hosts Millie’s Cookies.

This time I had a choc & orange and a double choc, plus a cappuccino. The cookies are good, very good.  Actually just right: not too big, not too small. Baked to perfection too.  Not too crunchy, not too chewy.  The double choc tasted heavenly.  The choc & orange, I’d have liked it to be a teeny bit more tangy.  The cappuccino is one of those produced by a machine that needs not human intervention except to place the cup and press the right button.  On the whole an enjoyable break except for the girl who served me.  Let’s just say that she is probably new and is used to being on the other side of the bench.  In the meantime, the girls enjoyed the Jumping Castle outside the toyshop on site, that was for once offered for free together, with some face painting (the The Cherub refuses to have on her face but want only and always just a butterfly on her hand).

In between the jumping and the face painting, I overheard this conversation:

TP: Let’s go to have our face painted!

TC:  I don’t want my face painted, I want a butterfly on my hand.

TP (taking her sister by the shoulders): Ok my dear one, if the lady speaks to you in English, I will tell her what you want, don’t worry.

The Princess is too sweet and caring.  I hope she stays this way.

PS We speak predominantly in Maltese but both TP and TC can follow and continue a conversation in English.  Ah, and this is not sponsored post.
