'What recession?!?'

Well, it's a Saturday nite and I'm home blogging (don't worry, I am recording Best of Saturday Night Live on cable right now). Its been a crazy work week; up till waaaaaaaay past midnite from Monday till Wednesday. That's why the office went a little party crazy on Thursday and Friday nite. So its like home only in the early morning for the whole week, either cos of work or out drinking, and this Saturday nite, tonite I'm gonna turn in early by which I mean before midnite. <^;^>

But I was out in town in the morning till afternoon and all I can say is 'What recession?!?', the malls are packed, long Qs at the cash registers, everyone's still buying lotsa stuff. Oh, yes I do read the papers ... am just saying if you look at the crowd at Orchard Road today, you wouldn't know there's a global credit crisis.

And what did I buy today? Besides another book at Kinokuniya, I also got myself the new Black Sesame cake from Patissier. Was ok, the black sesame taste was a little too overpowering for me, unless you are a big black sesame fan. The layer of red bean near the bottom of the cake was cool and kinda helped ease the black sesame taste.
