A Dinner With Bloggers
Yesterday after work, 01st June 2006, me and my cha-bo-lang headed for IMM Hoshi Japanese Restaurant for dinner.
We were a bit excited cos we would be meeting some freinds and a new face - Dandan.
Yeah, some of the bloggers we know were meeting there for a makan session together. People attended the session were Old Beng and Cha-bo-lang, Dandan, Xorpheus and Elydia.
Me and cha-bo-lang were on time and we managed to get a private room for our buffet dinner despite the Restaurant was having a full-house. (Heng ah, me suggested this Restaurant but did not bother to do a booking and turned out to be a full house BUT luck was with us). Sorry folks, we almost had no dinner last night.
A short while later, Dandan, Elydia and Xorpheus arrived.
We placed our order of sashimi and sushi and udon and grilled fish and tofu and salad and prawns and chawamushi and chicken and most of all, few rounds of salmon cos we have a salmon queen with us.
All 5 of us talked and ate and talked and ate until all 5 stomachs (at least mine) bloated up with all the food we ordered.
It was really fun to hang out once in a while with friends and had a good meal but to me, the best part was not the food but the companion of friends.
Forget about our work stress, forget about our personal problems, forget about our endless bills to settle for that 2 - 3 hours and indulged ourselves in laughters.
Though me and cha-bo-lang only met Dandan for the first time, we were able to click and talk like long-time friends as she is a very friendly lady.
Jokes, Facts about cups, Chinese gesture when someone pours you tea, dogs, bloggers world, Age (me the oldest, sob sob) and many more issues were spoken among us. This minute we were talking about serious issues on relationship and the next minute jokes were cracked and laughters from us could be heard even from the entrance of the Restaurant.
Good time really passes very fast and the Restaurant closes at 10 pm everyday so we called for the bill.
There were about 6-7 pieces of sashimi untouched and we were told by one of the waitresses that if we did not finish them, there will be a penalty for the left over so each one of us finished one piece each.
The bad point of having buffet is that kiasu people like me will tend to order more than what me can consume and therefore overeating which is rather unhealthy.
Credit must be given to Dandan for arranging for this makan session and taking the high risk of not be able to eat after seeing my face.
Attached photos to share with you. Only 4 faces cos my cha-bo-lang was the camera woman.
Ah yes, don´t @#€%$¿ me cos me was the only one with my trademark, ha ha.
