Earworm: This Never Happened Before~~Paul McCartney The anniversary dinner
We went to check out this new(?) restaurant in Citylink
New York New York!
I fell in love with its decor
-somehow new york itself just seems like epitome of coolness-
and obsessed about taking pictures of its menu
but alas the first impressions were not lived up to*shocked* where's the hot latino???
my latino chicken escalope was not bad. just not extraordinary. and dunno whats latino about it =/
darling is all hungry and ready to tuck in!
-but his barbequed ribs were hard to dissect. can hardly get any meat off. i'd recommend cafe cartel's any day.
service is quite poor i should say, they didnt serve us plain water unlike all the other tables. twice a waiter got the wrong order to us. once during dinner he came with a dish and another waitress while we were eating dessert. do we look like such pigs??
for dessert we ordered 'Super Chocolate Strawberry Sundae' even that took more than 20mins to prepare. longer than the time it took for our dinner to be served! when we wanted to cancel the head waiter told us his colleague is doing it. less than a min only. half a min left! and it took another 5 mins at least. yeah.
but they gave us green apple flavoured cotton candy after dessert! now we look like sweet tooth fairies. saw random tables getting the treat. i suspect its to make up for service that is not up to scratch. =/
pity, i wanted to like the place.
we weren't all that impressed. food is the most important factor in an eatery, service comes second. he's trying to show the menacing ah beng face. ooh the pink shirt brings out the red of your eyes =p get well soon!
was a bit down that we didnt get to revisit ECP, the place where it all started. time--if only we had extra hours on our anniversary... but as darling said, there's still 11 months more to celebrate =) yay.
the earlier dinner we had in hall.
organised by SNDCC --Sheares National Day Celebration Committee
oddly enough their celebration fell on the day of Merdeka day. *We sang Negaraku and spoke Malay at midnight!*
the obligatory senior date
the real date haha
nice glossy shirt =)
argh the tan lines!!!
classic elegance. l-r(me, nga, sandra, flora)
sweetness~~ junior guy gave senior girl (date) a bunch of flowers and designed a pillow for her... awwww...
girls at the dinner table
after dinner there were some performances, which i felt was more of a satire of singapore really..like there was this skit of a tour guide and a tourist, and the tourist auntie was asking why merlion looks like its vomitting.. cant remember the tour guide's answer but later she asked the significance of the merlion (historical, folklore..etc) and the reply was... its created by STB (singapore tourism board)!
and they oohed over geylang's preeetty lights
later they had guys twirling pink umbrellas (trying hard to keep a dead serious face at the same time) ala NS discipline of twirling air rifles. i liked it haha.
