a very good dutch friend visiting town. he was having golf at SICC afterwards so not free for lunch. i told him to come over my place for tea this morning on 10.4.2016.
he now basically visits singapore 2 times a year. had a good catching up. 🙂
after that i dropped him at sicc for his golf game about 1.15pm.
another group of friends, my primary school classmate were having lunch at 刘强 at bugis from 12pm. we had earlier said to play by ear since i did not know when my tea would end. it was too late for me to join & they had in any case split already…
i thought of repeating my usual lunchless day, but on the spur of the moment decided to go to Xinlu 新路 at meiling food centre for meepok tar.
use to do this a lot 15-20yrs ago, not much now. quite a favourite then.
mee pok still qq, al dent. chilli still good, but this time i felt a bit salty.
normally 5 fishballs. i asked for 面少 ie less noodles so got 1 addition 6th fishballs.
fishballs still springy, bouncy. again a bit salty.
i don’t whether my tastebuds has changed or i not in tune to appreciate the noodles, but today i did not quite enjoy the noodles, just felt it was a bit salty.
