On the eve of Chinese New Year, my ex-colleagues and I - one half of the dirty dozen and one other new breed - met for lunch to catch up and relive the good ol' days. We were a noisy lot in those days, but one by one we up and left the group, until it withered and rumoured soon to be dissolved.
The meeting place: Causeway Bay at Titanium Walk. Ok I just add that last part. Right behind Titanium office building, behind Ipohtown Kopitiam and Toastbox and McGregor Pub (is that the name?) ... and scores of other interesting food outlets. The new IT place for young professionals.
Anyway, the food was fantastic... we were hungry. Dim Sum. And we had 2 of everything, or close to. 'Sesi mengutuk boss', or ex-boss to some of us. Too bad Killjoy couldn't make it, all the better, his double-meaning talk used to irritate me no end sometimes.
But enough about that ... let these photos finish the entry for me. Spot me and you get a plate free!
|Marky, Big Momma, and Ron-ron the new breed...|
|Who-dat, Yung-si, and BurpKing ...|
|Deep-fried calamari, siaumei, bamboo rolls, egg-yolk bun...|
|Up close some more...|
|Yam cake! My absolute favorite...|
|Marky christened this the Nenen Bao... huh?|
|And this is er... another something mai...|
On that note:
WISHING ALL MY FRIENDS, FAMILY, RELATIVES, COLLEAGUEAS, ACQUAINTANCES, READERS (LOUD AND SILENT)... A PROSPEROUS CHINESE NEW YEAR!
GONG XI FA CHAI!
