It’s been about 14months since all four of us were together so when Shob planned to come home for her birthday, she also thought it was a good idea to surprise Nis and Gen about her homecoming and I was local fixer to make it happen. I was all excited and for like 4 weeks I couldn’t say a word to both Gen and Nis. So early last week to make sure they turned up for the surprise I sms them with the following message:-
So we all set for tomorrow? I have something to tell you guys 🙂
Needless to say, I had replies from the both of them wondering if I was pregnant and even this from Nis:-
Tell me and I promise I won’t tell Gen 🙂
Well, I held out and good thing too coz that had them all excited about what I was going to say. I met Nis first who knew I was out of sorts and couldn’t put her finger on it, till she thought she saw a girl who looked like Shob walking towards us and I was competely nonchalant about it. In retrospect, I should have at least turned around 😛 but Nis was pleasantly surprised. 1 down and 1 more to go. We went to the quaint Cafe le Caire on Arab Street to wait for Gen who was completely confused as she looked out of the car but equally surprise 🙂 Mission accomplished and it was like Shob never left 🙂
So if you ever want some mint tea or hibiscus tea with a great mezze plate and a comfortable space that opens till late on week days, head down to Arab Street and Cafe le Caire is on the side closer to Beach Road. I can’t wait to go back there again.
