Hi Tea @ Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Terminal 3
Ross was telling me that one time, May received a bottle of teelseed oil from her brother for her birthday.
“What the heck is teelseed?”
Well, teelseed is actually the seed of sesame! And in Asia, sesame oil is the queen of oils, full of nutritional and therapeutic benefits. Many consider it as food-medicine and it is the highly recommended oil used for cooking during Chinese mom’s confinement period.
Intrigued, I researched further and found that there are at least 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of this food-medicine and you can read them in details here: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/open-sesame-10-amazing-health-benefits-super-seed
2) High Blood Pressure.
3) Gingivitis/Dental Plaque.
4) Infant Health/Massage Oil.
5) Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
6) Antibiotic-Induced Kidney Damage.
9) Radiation-Induced DNA Damage.
10) Cancer: Sesame contains a fat-soluble lignin with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin, and which has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells, including:
May was raving about a particular brand of teelseed oil, Ghee Hiang’s “Baby Brand” (Ghee Hiang is 160 years old) which she said is not available in Singapore so when I found out that Jerry was going to visit an uncle in Penang, I put on my thick skin and ask him to get me 4 bottles of the must-have essential commodity!
Last Friday, I met up with Jerry to collect the teelseed oil. It was already too late for lunch so I suggested having tea at Crowne Plaza located at Changi International Airport Terminal 3. I’ve always like the drive to and fro the airport where the expressway is lavishly lined with pink and magenta bougainvillea on both sides.
The service and food were ordinary. This is definitely not a high tea place I would highly recommend but if you have a craving for lemon curds and happened to be in Changi Airport…
Crowne Plaza Changi Airport (connected to Changi Airport’s Terminal 3)

Happy eating and bonding 🙂
P.S. We did not have lunch and tea was not too happening, in the end I brought Jerry to 86 Bedok for just one dish!
