This one's for Karen

Did you see the rain today? Oh my goodness, I've never seen the sky so dark in the morning. Was getting ready for church and hoping to beat the rain. But it didn't happen. Not quick enough. Anyway, it was a storm out there when we were leaving the house. But we called for a cab and got there pretty dry, except that I tore the flesh off my thumb in my bid to open the umbrella. How silly. But that's me... Little Miss Clumsy, or rather that is my girl. I am Big Mrs Clumsy.

Hey look Karen, hubby joined us for a meal today. :) We were over at Vivo and had lunch at Tangs. It's a tiny cafe compared to the one in Orchard Road. There was only one server who also took our orders. Haha. They offer different set meals every few days, and for today, it was Breaded Fish. It came with coffee/tea, and dessert of the day which was lime sherbet. Hubs also had the crab bisque. It's quite nice, a bit too heavy and had a very strong crab taste. They served it with you tiao (dough fritters).

Note - Pictures appear larger than actual size of food.

I was so proud of dear princess today. She actually opted for something healthy. :) Looked through the menu and proclaimed that she wanted the chicken and cranberry sandwich. Of course it was much too big a portion for her as it was an adult's portion. They don't have a kids menu here. The bonus (for her) was that it came with crisps. So that was healthy thrown out the window.

I ordered for myself the Indian curry (oops forgot the name again!) with foccacia. It was very satisfying. Nice to dip the breadsticks in. But I couldn't finish all of it. It wasn't a huge portion but still there was lots of it.

And with compliments of Godpa, princess got a little bear from him, done through 'remote access'. ;) Thanks much, Al. I wouldn't have gotten it for her as I know her and soft toys, they just do not click. It'd be left in the corner after 2 days. What's a godpa for if not for indulgence? :)
