Cavalock and The Dunkin' Discovery

Well, the place I work folded over the weekend and that means about 20 wonderful people are out of jobs. Naturally I'm sad but there were already signs, trip to San Diego Comic Con being cancelled and all that. Local fat boss is a screw-up and not a business kinda guy, if you know what I mean. I guess in this part of the world, setting up a profitable creative company really is harder than it looks.

What is also sad is all the young, incredible foreign creative talent that are in a kinda limbo right now. These people are like waiting to know what to do next, their pay, apartment lease, etc. They are some of the nicest, most talented people I have ever met. As for me, I'm as ok as I can be. Money-wise, I'm debt free and I can always shake my booty to make a couple of bucks again just kidding bout the last part. <^;^> Nah, I won't starve to death. I'll still look for work but in the meantime I'll probably cook more, work out again (finally), spend time with my family, carry out my new slumlo ...oh, I mean, landlord duties and blog more too if anyone is still interested.

Ok, enough of that, let's see some food pix. Look what I found at NTUC Finest, the new one next to Somerest MRT station. Dunkin' Donuts coffee powder! Since I got my Nespresso machine, I got no use for coffee powder but this is my first time seeing it here. With the Killeney Road one, now I got two NTUC supermarkets near my other home. Why two? I dunno.

Was also at Vivo City last week, I swear the only thing good bout that mall are the food joints. Ate at that No Signboard seafood restaurant for the first time and whoa, check out that deco! Damn right they'll be serving you seafood!

We ordered quite a bit, starting with the S$8 oyster, I think it was S$8. Nice, big and juicy although it couldn't beat the one I had at Borough Market last year.

The cereal prawns is another winner. After this pix and dish, came the crabs both buttered and white pepper. No pix for them cos after stuffing myself with the prawns, my sticky fingers were in no condition to be touching my iPhone. :P

Hey cavalock, I'm sorry to hear. Perhaps a greener pasture is better.

oh dear! sudden news to me, but i think you're well prepped for it. i hope they've been fair to the employees. you've always been prudent with finances and that definitely helps to put you in a better frame of mind. such is the nature of your industry. get some rest. there'll be another good gig swinging along soon.
