Hello, Eternal Leather Goods

Looking for small leather goods to add to your life can be a tricky affair, sometimes. I would consider budget, credibility, and workmanship. But when you do find something that suits your budget and seems well-made, and does not ship from too far away, there is still the most important issue of all – aesthetics. It is not something easily described, or explained.

I have bought a few things from Eternal Leather Goods before, and I began with something small – a coin pouch, and then moved on to a belt. Recently, I renewed my search for a cover for my Hobonichi Cousin, and was also on the look-out for a leather watch band.

I eventually bought a A5 notebook cover from Eternal Leather Goods, and a one-pass slip-through watch strap. The notebook cover is meant for a stack of thinner notebooks, but it fits the Hobonichi cousin well! The watch strap is meant for a Timex Weekender; I fit it onto a Seiko 5 (SNK 803) and it looks very fine.

[Note: The A5 notebook cover comes with a elastic band to keep the book closed, but I didn’t quite like that option, and am instead using a binder clip instead.]

I truly love the items that Colin makes. Items ship quickly, and on the one occasion I had a question, Colin responded very fast.

Brunch at Pacamara

Saturday mornings feel full of promise. And it feels especially pleasant when you decide that you would go for brunch, but instead of making a booking, you decide to wake up early instead. We got to Pacamara early enough, and took one of the few remaining seats.

We have been hearing good things of this place, and it is great to finally sit down and enjoy this wonderful little cafe. We took a while to choose what to eat. The menu sparked a little discussion on what would be the three brunch items our ideal cafe should serve.

I had the Spanish eggs (S$16.9), while Siew had the Crab Benedict (S$19.9). The food was good, and the portion just right for us. Maybe bigger eaters would need more sustenance. Our coffee came after our food, which makes great sense! It is always annoying to have your coffee arrive shortly before your food, or while you are eating.

This is a cafe that satisfies. The food, drink, service, and ambience should meet most expectations.

More information: Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters is at 185 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574333. Parking can be had, via Jalan Pelatina, along Upper Thomson Road or Taman Permata.
