Raya III: Makanlah Kuih Sepotong
SK also changed some money for her upcoming trip to Taiwan and Japan. Since we had Japanese the day before, we lunched at Foong Lye for a change. As usual, one had to take a number and they gave me sass because my party of four had not arrived.
"My grandmother is making her up from the lower ground floor. You want me to tell her to HURRY UP?"
I wasn't very hungry so I just ordered fried noodles. The sets are usually a little too overwhelming. Made a short stop at Art Friends and we were on our way home. Didn't rest much at all, cause I went out again at 4:00pm to catch a movie with KH at Tropicana City Mall. Watched "R.I.P.D", the afterlife equivalent of "M.I.B.". Not bad actually, plenty of comic relief. Too bad there ain't any shirtless scenes of Ryan Reynolds. Just after the movie, we rushed to Sushi Tei for Bunny's birthday dinner. They brought us to a room and confirmed our reservation:
"Table for six, plus one baby chair?"
Definitely the wrong table. Turns out they were in the room beside us. Opps. A small gathering with Jaded Jeremy, Janvier and The Chief. The last I saw Janvier was during Christmas 2012! Took us some time to order. Flipped the menu from front to back and couldn't decide on what to eat. Bad menu feng shui. Janvier won the best gift wrapping award (only because Legolas wasn't there). The gift had a nice latticed ribbon and added on with an origami kimono boy that subsequently found its way into Bunny's shirt pocket. Did the customary camwhoring and proceeded to Share Tea for drinks. The handmade taro with coffee jelly was neither hot nor was it blander at 50% sugar level. Bought Bunny an American brownie from Secret Recipe and I made the mistake of asking letting them reheat it because it kinda melted in the box. LOL. By 10:00pm, Bunny's battery had run low (he's obviously not the Energizer or Duracel bunny), so we all said our goodbyes.
P.S.: Heard that Bunny dumped his shirt into the washing machine together with the origami kimono boy. It now haunts the washer, wailing yurusenai... and umareshiya... during the spin cycle
