It was a gathering of some ex-STI people at one of them zichar seafood places at Tiong Bahru.
7 1/2 of us (one left after an hour plus for another dinner) devoured:
1 chili crab (surprisingly quite hot)
1 black pepper crab
1 butter crab (which has a lovely buttery, coconut taste)
1 plate cereal prawns (yum!)
1 plate baby squid (unfortunately not crunchy enough)
2 "yue guang he" - which I suppose is literally translated as moonlit river? - essentially hor fun with a raw egg on top, which you mix into the rice noodles
1 fried rice
Now that was some dinner!
And then we adjourned to Blu Jazz Cafe to meet a few others and have drinks/dessert.
Nice place - rather colourful with some odd lights inside. But it was a relatively breezy night and perfect for sitting outdoors. However, I highly disapprove of their music selection. It wasn't blues, it wasn't jazz. It was a mishmesh of easy listening crap that included some Michael Bolton, some salsa-ish latin music, Sympathique, and Que Sera Sera - which we took as a sign to get out of there.
