Monday was a public holiday and I met Sushi and Jellybean for dinner. It has been a while since we last met! Was looking forward to it cos we had lots of fun together as classmates before, with other friends who belonged in the same circle. It was better than I expected – we talked so much it was as if we never graduated, started work or got married/engaged (ahem, the two of them at least).
We had a hard time deciding where to eat but we eventually settled on Pasta de Gohan, which is a Japanese-Italian fusion eatery that serves Italian cuisine with a Japanese touch. Sushi had fettucine carbonara, Jellybean had some creamy, soupy spaghetti with meatballs which tasted pretty good and I had baked cheesy prawn and chicken penne. I think the food was alright, but for the price we paid the portion was much too small. I wouldn’t mind going back there to try the soupy pasta, though.
I don’t know why but when the three of us are together – even back in college when we have lunch or breakfast with our other friends – we get super loud, automatically. I think the whole restaurant could hear our conversation throughout our dinner. 😆 (It was worse when we were in college!) We talked about our class, half of whom are in the teaching line including Sushi and Jellybean. Moaned about people we couldn’t stand. Bitched about our jobs. Took silly pictures of us posing kawaii-style.
After dinner, we went to good ol’ Baskin-Robbins for dessert. On the way we passed by a waffle place and Sushi and Jellybean bought a chocolate-peanut butter one. While waiting for their waffle we took more silly pictures. There was this cute white guy who made silly faces at Jellybean and I while Sushi tried to take a picture of us. Should’ve taken a picture of him to show you.
At Baskin-Robbins, I had my all-time favourite Maui Brownie Madness – with brownie bits in it! – and we settled at a table and yakked even more, especially about our jobs.
I had a wonderful time catching up! We must do this again, Jellybean and Sushi. 😉
