Nis, Gen, Shob and I met in 1999 where we all worked on a children’s program for Channel 8. Yes, you’re reading right, Channel 8. It was a Chinese program. Let’s not forget Shob is Indian, Nis is Arab, Gen’s sorta Eurasian (from her Mum’s side) and well, I’m Chinese but I distinctly remember bringing home a Chinese paper where I scored something like 4/120. So the project was a hoot to work on and if you ask our Taiwanese director, AJ (short for 阿杰) he’ll tell you why in the beginning he was extremely frustrated with our Executive Producer for building such a team but alls well that ends well. The four of us have been firm friends since then, it seems difficult to imagine that was 9 years ago.
When it first opened, my friends and I loved the food, ambience and the fact that not much people went there. Over night, PS Cafe became one of Singapore’s première poser places to hang out, one that has two sittings for dinner (what’s up with that?) and needless to say, it isn’t one of our favourite places any more. The food isn’t as good as it was before but I have to say the surrounding greenery does make it a pretty nice area to just chill.
Like I always reckon, it’s the company that counts 🙂 Here we are looking as happy as punch while we caught up with our respective lives and made fun on the different situations we’re all in. The mint tea is still pretty good but these days I’m rooting for the one from Cafe le Caire along Arab Street. I had their vegetarian curry which is one of those fusion sort … not bad but a tad expensive, if you asked me. After nicely taking in our brunch and waiting for the rain to stop, we headed to Haji Lane for dress shopping!!
All in all it was a sweet and simple day of hanging out … things that make life worth while, I reckon 🙂 With Shob’s leaving for London tonight and it’ll be a while before we get to do this again … I hope you don’t mind while I just ponder on friendships I’m grateful to have 🙂
