Eng Kong Terrace for dog, cake and coffee lovers

jack rusell terrierThe Eng Kong Terrace row of shophouses is a pretty nice place to take a quick stroll and have a cake and coffee, especially if you are a dog lover.

Here’s why. 

Relax and watch Cute Dogs at June’s Pet House

Our Japanese Spitz friend Some White Cookie‘s human, henceforth called E, decided to try out a grooming shop at Eng Kong Terrace. It’s not Cookie’s regular groomer. He’s still searching for that elusive, perfect groomer. :P

But the great thing about June’s Pet House for the dog lover, is the dog waiting area right at the shop front. Ladies will like it because it’s furnished in White and Pink, and there are cute, well-groomed dogs easily viewed from outside the shop like these ones. *Squee*

The dog on the sofa is 1 of 6 Tibetan Terriers in Singapore, according to June. But we particularly love this adorable Jack Russell Terrier named Mineral. :P

Have cake at Lynn’s Cakes and Coffee

Lynn's Cakes and Coffee

Despite my uncooperative photo subjects :P, Lynn’s Cakes and Coffee serves good pasta and cakes. There was a constant stream of customers walking in and out for takeaways! Their Carrot Cake appear to be the most recommended, looking at online reviews.

Helmed by a Malay lady, we were surprised that they allowed us to take the only outdoor seating that they offer. But if you do drop by with dogs, be ready for the wait staff to be skirting nervously around your dogs. :P

Wait for surprises while you nurse that cake and coffee :P

The thing about outdoor dining at pet-friendly places with dogs, is that sometimes unexpected objects and adventures may land right into your lap. :P

We were just finishing up our meal when a fledgling pigeon crash-landed on the tarmac between two cars near us.

It just laid there. Quietly. But we could see it was still breathing.

E called ACRES (Animal Concerns and Research Education Society) who said they could only come pick it up a couple of hours later. But neither of us had the skills to tell how badly the bird was hurt. So rather than wait, we decided to call a cab to send it to ACRES directly.

When we reached ACRES, it was dark and raining in a very deserted part of Singapore. We were standing in the drizzle because there was not-so-friendly dogs in their compound so they couldn’t let Donna and Some White Cookie in. Standing with us in the rain, the ACRES representatives examined the bird and pronounce him not injured… and fat.

What??!!!

Yes. Apparently, the parents fed it very well. – – !

Since I didn’t think we could climb the roof to put the bird back at Eng Kong Terrace. Leaving it on the ground will just leave it prey for cats. And ACRES agreed that the fat fledgling  was probably too heavy for his parents to pick him up back to safety, they decided to take fat kid in in the end. :P

They think the fat fledgling just needs two weeks more to be fully developed, I think.

Donna of course was quite right that it was all a fuss over nothing.

Honestly, we just didn’t want to have a dead baby bird on our hands. Even if it was only a pigeon. :P

So that was our adventure at Eng Kong Terrace. :P


Been there before? Or had a similar adventure? Tell me all in the comments below! ;)

  1. There’s a big difference between a Jack Russel and Tibetan terrner. JR’s are true terriers and a Tibetan is not. It really doesn’t matte because both are loved here.

    • Jack Russells are popular here. The Tibetan Terrier is rare since there’s only six of them here. I actually don’t know much about them but your remark made me do some further reading up on them briefly. The dog on the sofa was very calm and slept through all the noise made by the other dogs in the grooming shop the most of the time we were there. A very calm dog. :)

      I thought you would say something about the bird, Kismet :P HAHAHAHAHA!

  2. I want to eat the cakes!

  3. Lynn's Cakes

    We really enjoyed reading this blog post. What an adventure at Eng Kong Terrace. Say hi to us when you drop in again. Never know what adventure you’re gonna get next :)

  4. What an adventure and you were good Samaritans to the pigeon. :)
