2 days outside The V Tea Room

In my mindless pursuit of more BerryLite cookies, I manage to divert all social gatherings over the weekend to The V Tea Room at the Esplanade Mall where the small smiling Chinese girl at the entrance took 1 look at the small smiling Son and told us to sit in the safety area - outside the restaurant, away from the breakables and away from other patrons whose idea of a good time does not include someone else's crying screaming running toddler at their table.

On the second consecutive day I arrived, she smiled at me as we were asked again to sit outside the restaurant. Weren't you here yesterday? I cringed in embarrassment as I tried to order the same drink 2 days in a row. Some people just like to have a routine. What's wrong with that?! If she thinks this is bad, I wonder how she would react if I told her I've ordered exactly the same pasta dish every time I've gone to Pasta Fresca over the last 15 years.

Anyway, the food and beverages are WAAAAY overpriced, but they are very very nice. Top quality stuff, for which one pays top dollar. We had 2 orders of tea, 1 rum cocoa drink and 1 mango cake melt to share. Tab come up to S$57.70. Yesterday, we had a chocolate mud drink, a mocha mud drink, an orange/ mango smootie, 1 crepe, 1 ice cream, 1 quiche and 2 boxes of BerryLite cookies. Tab came up to S$120. I almost fainted.

However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel, and that is someone got food poisoning after yesterday's meal so if the expense (S$180 over the weekend on just tea!) still bugs me tomorrow morning when I wake up, then I'll write in and let's see what happens.

In other news, would just like to say to expat @ large that thick and short is NOT better. I tell you what's thick and short - a cha siew pao is thick and short. Imagine a flesh-coloured cha siew pao. Mebbe it's just me, but I've never seen a dildo on sale (or even clearance) that looks like a flesh-coloured cha siew pao.

i ALWAYS order the same stuff at all my favourite restaurants... nothing wrong with routine i say, and nothing wrong with having favourites. :) i can eat the same breakfast every morning for 6 months.

E@L and the words "thick and short" in the same sentence, the mind truly does boggle...but why am I also not surprised.

I'm so depressed now.. I'm shorter than e@l AND wider than he is..

:o(

CLARIFICATION! DID NOT SAY THAT E@L IS THICK AND SHORT! My husband would point out that I should've linked his blog entry in the first place with regard to that comment so that these misunderstandings do not arise, but the technological bits and skills elude me.

Just cleaned out another tin of BerryLite over the weekend. Feel rather bloated.

I'll tell you someone who's gonna be thick and short if they keep eating Max Webber's Chocolates (you've never read his Protestant Chocolate Ethic?) and VT-rooms cookies.

Talk about going into V-T (ventricular tachycardia = heart attack) sooner than short thick me...

Mind you, do I need take (implied or inferred?) criticism seriously from any person whose entire experience of Italian food consists of ultra-bland cholesterol-splorgy buskeddy carbonara...

And I was FORCED to order the banana crepe!

And the ice-cream.

If you tallied up all minor expenses, you know you could be financially independent of any boss by 40+?

Aww man. My carbonara kicks ass. You don't know. You just don't know. And I repeat - I did not say! Cannot understand the hypersensitivity of man (which seems to be limited to very specific issues). When The Husband saw me type "short", "thick" into a blog entry, he immediately lit a cigarette and said "Please don't talk about my penis".

Nuff said!
