I'm sorry! Sob! A Retraction

So KerryKerryBoBerry calls me to say "Hey, if you had bothered to turn your head, maybe, 45 degrees from where you were staring, you would've seen that BloodCafe is still there. They just moved lah."

Oh dear.

So in the name of journalistic integrity, I made the journey, Fat Son and all, to Paragon yesterday and Lo And Behold, she was right. I'm sorry. I was mean. BloodCafe is now Project Shop Cafe, and the lights are no longer red but yellow. Save for these miniscule changes, the Real Deal is still there. And it's still crowded as hell on Sunday. And still full of the same cool people eating slowly.

To their credit, they actually have a door bitch who seats people. No more jostling for a table. And to their further credit, they seated me and Fat Son immediately, after they understood that I wanted a seat for 1 adult, and space for 1 pram. But due to the tremendous karmic buildup from my last mistaken post, they couldn't find a seat for me inside. I had to sit outside, in front of the escalators, facing the hundreds of people passing by. And to add insult to injury, I ended up sitting in the next table from Jazreel Low and her young daughter, also in a pram.

It couldn't have been a greater contrast. JL is perfectly turned out - perfect makeup, great hair in a bun (it never shifted the entire time - like it was nailed to her head), casual jeans just-so, and a gorgeous loose green top held in place by a single tiny spaghetti strap. No bra lines, no peekaboo underwear. If I had tried that stunt, my son would have ripped the strap on the top even before we got into the taxi, leaving me naked from the top down in front of the passing traffic at AMK. And he would have looked cute doing that too.

Anyway, back to Blood. Menu is largely the same, with some slight (seasonal?) changes. The Bolognaise is better than usual - I realise they now put red peppers in to add a slight tang to the meat. The waiters are younger, but less gay. I guess you could say Gay-lite. The drinks are better than I remembered.

In other news, Lawry's has shrunk!! And this I checked by turning my head 45 degrees in BOTH directions.

Hiyo! Was a little puzzled when I saw your original post.. coz I saw the cafe too.. not too long ago. I figured that it was due to the everchanging retail landscape.. *shrug* Time for another visit I guess.

Could you be a dear, go back to the cafe, turn your head 45 degrees upwards, pan all round and see if the 3 golf stores are still there? Since you made a mistake once ...

New PS cafe at Harding Road rocks. You heard it here first.

(p.s. the key lime pie is now much more readily available than a dinner reservation.)
