Finally met up with Anoop, one of my best friends who’s on vacay here for the weekend.
We went shopping in Orchard and had plans to have coffee in Lady M before dinner, but we were shocked when we realized it was already 6pm. So we decided to skip Lady M and directly go to Ricciotti.
Ricciotti is one of the restaurants we used to frequent back when Anoop and her sister Chi were still living in SG. She, Chi, Gelle and I call ourselves the meanies. Too bad Chi couldn’t come.
Then Melvin realized he had forgotten his bag when he and Joey went to meet his friends earlier, so we went to Hooters to get it from his friends.
On the way there we did the signature tourist post in front of the Clarke Quay sign.
Did you know Singapore has its own love locks too?
Then we booked an uber for a big car so all 5 of us can fit and went home to Joelle’s flat, where we’re spending the night.
It was time for Moscato di Asti, our favourite wine of all time!
Then Anoop & Gelle made yakult sake using measuring cups coz must be precise lah!
OMG it was so delicious!! So much so that I almost single-handedly drank the entire pitcher.
We broke out the magic sing.
We realized that Burn is Chi’s song for us so we all sang it! Bwahaha. 😆 #insidejoke
I want you to burn
Burn for me baby
Like a candle in my night
Burn for me
Burn for me 🎤
The next morning, Anoop & Melvin met up with their friends Jaja & Einstein, and brought me along. I’ve met Jaja before, but not her boyfriend.
We met up at Swissbake. In the midst of a fascinating conversation about pre-wedding seminar questions, Einstein suddenly said, “Teka lang, sino ka na nga?” (Hold on, who are you?)
We found that utterly hilarious. I blamed the people for not introducing us LOL. Then I introduced myself.
In the middle of coffee, Anoop realized she was hungry after all, so we moved to Din Tai Fung, where Joey & Gelle joined us.
We had xiao long bao, hot & sour soup, Anoop’s favourite spicy wantons, and Jaja’s favourite limited edition chilli crab xiao long baos. Delicious!
Then Jaja & Einstein went home and the rest of us headed to Marina Bay Sands for some sightseeing.
Then Anoop craved roti prata and we couldn’t find any in the MBS food court, so we walked all the way to Makansutra to have it for dinner.
After almost a full day of walking, this tita is beat!
*tita is Tagalog for auntie.
