I finally met up with my secondary school girlfriends from CHIJ, and this time, it was dubbed ‘The Boyfriend’s gathering’. Wonder why? That’s because all of us are happily attached and decided to bring our other halves along! How do you feel when attending your other half’s gatherings? Is it always awkward?
For me, the first time’s always gonna be weird, the way new people are thrust into existing circle of friends. But with more exposure, things will get more natural. And it’s always nice to bond over good food, or board games for the non-athletic ones, and physical sport for the athletic ones.
Wait, you haven’t seen the whole group yet!
The photos above were taken using laura’s digital camera. I like how it has wide-angle properties and can fit everyone in the photo and it doesn’t look cramped. Nowadays even point-and-shoot cameras are so good!
We had dinner at The Delicious Group in Scotts Square. The food was not as fantastic as we had anticipated, and the dish that the boys ordered (3 of them ordered the same chicken) turned out to be a camouflage of mushy moss over tasteless chicken drumstick. It is as unappetizing as it looks, trust me.
The boys who ordered this got their girlfriends implicated as well, because it was so tasteless that the girls volunteered to share their own pastas with them, so the couples took turns to alternate eating this erm-looking thing. See! Where can you find such nice girls to share thick and thin with you guys?? Haha. By the way, pesto tastes like grass.
Hammy and I were lucky as we ordered pastas, so they weren’t so bad, although nothing to rave about. I’d expected the Crabmeat Linguine to taste better, but the dish didn’t bring out the flavour of crab meat. It could have easily been substituted with chicken and it would taste the same. Hammy’s aglio olio was nothing worth mentioning. We’ve had better Aglio olio from Pasta Manna at Old Airport’s hawker centre, way cheaper too.
Well anyway, gatherings aren’t so much about the food right? It’s catching up and sharing gossips that makes the deal. I wish I could have joined them for coffee at TCC afterwards but we had to go off. Another time then! Next up, steamboat in mid-Jan 2012! :)
