Saturday night get-together

After many failed attempts to meet, we finally managed to sit down together for a meal with Steph, John and Watson last night. It's isn't an easy feat getting a group of friends to set aside time amid their busy schedules for a get together. Even after months of planning, three couldn't make it last night. One was down with fever and two were traveling.

The loving couple - Steph and John.

Our little group had a nice dinner at a Thai Restaurant in Vivocity. This being the weekend and Christmas season, there were queues everywhere, from the carpark to the toilet and restaurants. Good thing Steph had called days ahead to make dinner reservations and all we did was walk right in (past a long line of hungry people) and could start feasting almost soon after.

We had too much delicious food to eat. Steph ordered papaya salad, mango salad, Pad Thai (fried Thai noodles), pineapple rice, olive rice, green chicken curry, sweet and sour fish, Tom Yum soup and fried bean sprouts. Some of the dishes were so spicy, I had to drink icy lime juice and ice milk tea to save my life.

Apart from eating, I spent the night playing with adorable little Kay who just turned one. For some reason, she liked me to take her out to the patio to watch the ships sailing by and cable cars moving overhead.

Well, I'm off to Thailand this afternoon. Looks like my diet for the next two days will be more Thai curry and Tom Yum soup. I won't be blogging, so you guys enjoy your weekend!
