La Strada Ristorante, Scotts Road

It was an important dinner,
and I was super duper late.

Monkey was impatient to leave,
but Chris da Boss was shooting me the "I am so gonna demote u" look.
for we were about to close a huge sale...

stooopid kuwaiti customer
took so long to choose his timepiece,
but it's a half a mil piece...
so he had to take his time.

anyway they buy diamonds like buying crystals.
fast and straight forward.

I was only allowed to leave after making sure his black Amex
went thru....phewwwwww.

Stood at the taxi queue for 30 mins outside Swissotel,
and snarled at inconsiderate chinese tourists
who tried to cut queue,
and the stooopid weekend jam.....-_-
I took 45 mins to reach to a place 8 minutes away.
Shawn throwing me tat look!!!
Yes I know,
I am late....sorry sorry sorry
dun be angry.
selection of parmas and grilled courgettes and aubergines with olive.
Before I can say hi and hug everyone,
the head staff seated me and pulled my napkin,
and dinner was served.
*any faster ar???*
clam and mussel zuppa with grilled pepper and saffron
I was enjoying my meal so much,
and didn't know that we are heading for a 10 course dinner!!!
