Woo hoo! It’s Friday! School holidays ended last week. The boys are back in school and life is getting humdrum… so weekend is the only thing to look forward to for now.
I’ve got it all thought out. We’re heading to Ramen Ramen at Rail Mall after work to have a slurping big bowl of Japanese ramen. Ah! The joy of eating smooth wheat noodles in a rich soup stock, and biting into chunks of juicy deep-fried chicken and seaweed. I like my ramen extra spicy. So a good dose of chilli powder and garlic oil is a must!
We’ll walk over to the cosy Italian restaurant next door to indulge in the velvety rich tiramisu and a good cup of coffee cos we need to recharge our energy for bar-hopping.
I asked my friend to join us. “Sure!” she said, “But I’m not going to SJ! My customers wanted me to join them last night but I refused to go after what I read in the papers. It was Ladies Night!”
Of course we’re not going to St James! We’ll find somewhere else to chill out…
Guess what's in store this weekend? We received an invitation "to celebrate the founding of the United States with the American Association of Singapore’s annual 4th of July festivities featuring food, fireworks and family fun.” There will be formal ceremonies, color guard, speeches and national anthem too. With bands like MidLife Crisis, The Crude Oil Cowboys and The Stratomasters playing all afternoon, it sure sounds like fun!
