there's something about eating together that makes a special bond among friends. however it doesn't work with any old type of food. it's usually something decadent and sinful. the sharing of a pleasurable moment that creates a fond memory for us to share. i swear, sometimes i would forget an entire event, but would fondly remember the scrumptious dish served.
it all started with ina's birthday. her sister, lynette, and nieces were hard at work making three cute birthday cakes (triple birthday celebration for ina, ina's mum, lat, and ina's niece, diana) and some tarts that had my taste buds full attention that evening.
the birthday celebration carried on and i treated ina for a slimming ayurvedic massage. we decided to indulge a little bit with some cupcakes at my old work place wondermilk cafe since we were in the vicinity.
later that same day, we had another indulgent meal. for me it was a whole pizza! and ina had the chocolate cake that's to die for at ben's general food store.
on a spur of the moment one night, i decided to go for some froyo and dragged ina but unfortunately we were too late and the staff of tutti frutti wouldn't let us in (we clearly had 5 minutes left). feeling defeated, we tried to be optimistic by venturing the area. we actually found a haagen dazs that was open til late! you could have told us we won the grand lottery because that was how we felt! ecstatic! i tried the double scoop tiramisu and fell in love. it was so hard for me to take a picture. i was salivating through the lens.
it was recently that our friend munirah came to our neck of the woods. and it was through our fondness for mille crepe that we made a night out of it. it started with driving hurriedly to make it on time before the cafe; food foundry shuts. you can read it in detail here. and with a satisfied palate, we were in such a good mood that we unanimously decide on karaoke-ing until the the place closed.
hope you guys have a tasty week ahead!
