Gezz, has V-Day just passed me by? Well, to be honest, was just too busy with work to make a big deal out of it. I did managed to catch the latest episode of Two and A Half Men on YouTube that day so it was a pretty good day for me. I thought of writing something about past loves for V-Day but how do I talk about my past 'social life' without sounding like a cad? I don't for now. Maybe one day I will.
Anyway, the last weekend till today was just one long cleaning up and getting ready for the Lunar New Year. Got my pussywillow the other day after work. I figured it's kinda like our local version of the Christmas tree, only a little more naked. You buy it during the holiday season, dress it up a little and ...er...ok, there are no presents under this plant...so I guess that's about all the similarities to the Christmas tree.
Work has been hell and it's gonna get a lot worse before it gets any better. So off I go for my comfort food session namely getting the best Japanese food my money can buy. Finally managed to hit somewhere that I have been eyeing for awhile now, Kaisan, a pretty expensive little place at our famous Raffles Hotel. Here's a very good review of the place by Skinny Epicurean. Every word is true. I was there alone on Thursday nite. Got myself a counter seat. Ordered some sashimi and cha soba, my usual at most Japanese joints until I find out more about the place. I'll definitely make a return trip one of these days, probably end of the month or early March. So if you see a guy in t-shirt and jeans, alone having dinner at the counter, that's me!
