you know what i like about living in Singapore? i get to meet so many people that i didn’t get to meet when i lived in NYC or Melbourne. Singapore is a transit city, so, when people travels from the States or Europe to Asia or Australia, they usually stops by Singapore. and when they are in transit, even only for a few hours, i usually get to meet with them.
this morning, i got a phone call from Novi letting me know that she’s in Singapore, and actually somewhere around Holland Village area. she and her husband, Steve, are having a vacation and on their way to Jakarta. so we met up at Coffee Bean, where i was introduced to a friend of theirs, Michael.
later that night, Michael suggested us to go to Original Sin, our neighbor’s vegetarian restaurant… an excellent vegetarian restaurant, i may add. we met up with Novi’s college friend, Natalia, at our house. Koda gets to meet with Novi and Steve. and she gets a little too excited with that many people in the house… Bond, Nia’s boyfriend, was also at our house at that time, although he didn’t end up join us for dinner at Original Sin.
Michael was in charge to order our dinner, since he was the most frequent visitors among us — despite we live only four houses away from the restaurant. honestly, i was impressed by the goodness of the cooking. it was so yummy. too bad it was dark that i couldn’t take pictures of the food. but i think Novi did… we just have to wait and see if she puts the pictures up on her site.
anyways, if i weren’t living in Singapore, i probably would not be able to meet Novi and Yasmina, or had my cousins visited our home because they have something else to do in Singapore… and i love having people around! i wish i could pay them a return visit. i would love to see their cats, Cinta and Arjuna.
