We were reminiscing alot about our batchmates and to our surprise/horror, many of them were getting hitched... its rather interesting how many of our friends turned out to be, from the way we remembered them in secondary school - belts and all. Random meetups or fb stalking does wonders to making surprising discoveries.
With this strange upstart, I actually had to start asking the waitress what were the various things in my food were cos I really didnt couldnt figure out what I was eating!
Tuna and Hamachi - fresh as expected, no less. I adore how they present such a simple dish so prettily and that really captures the beauty of kaiseki,
Yam cake with chicken - there is a slight oriental twist to this - it feels like a fried yam cake, but it was superbly well contrasted with the tart salad atop.
We all applied for the Shang card thereafter. It was a most lovely, wet day and spent with the best people. Its a real luxury meeting up for such a lovely lunch...8 days to Christmas!
With the Shang card, you get complimentary parking if not its $6 per entry on weekends! and $10 for valet...
Found a new love at Starbucks which I'm having as I'm typing this out- the Green Tea Soya Latte...its soooo good I'm staying off the regular Soy Latte as well. And...the Apple Crumble Cheese cake is most awesome!! Shall blog about it sometime...
