A wonderful day

I was on leave but there was some minor problems at the office that required my attention and a meeting in the afternoon, but at that time, bright was the day as I set out, in equally high spirits for lunch with the owner of my heart.

Lunch was at the pleasant Doc Cheng’s at Raffles Hotel where we both had the set meal. Service was a little awkward but good. I fedback to the Chef that the Sirloin steak a little dry (they cut the fat!) and over-done (it was medium and not medium-rare) but I did not complain (a complaint from me would have resulted in a send-back). All in all, lunch was very fun; it always is, with 143.

After a two-hour meeting, I rushed down to an event organized by the Spanish Trade Commission in Vivocity. The Cava was superb, the dessert wine was one-dimensional. However the chocolates were amazing.

And I got to indulge in a slight habit (I can quit anytime) of positioning things in-line. I had to stop (see?!), leaving certain boxes misaligned, as all the staff in the shop started staring at me.

No matter as we bumped in to a good friend and proceeded to a pre-planned dinner (I have to say pre-planned because some people read this blog and complain that they were not invited) at Bosses with good food, great wines and very excellent company.

Full review to come later, but I can safely say that if you are tired of a certain chain of “Hong Kong”-styled eateries, Bosses is worth checking out:

Finally after dinner, we decided to grab a quick supper at a Ba Kut Teh stall on Balestier Road.

Yay!
