gourmet grill

at dempsey's hut with sarge's mates on sunday evening.

open-air chill-out, hoegaardens on tap, rustic wooden floors and benches, lush green surroundings, and the irresistible aroma of fresh meat on the barbie...

I had the lamb chops which were very yummily seasoned, though just a tad too cooked. lamb-eaters will know that lamb needs to be medium-rare to be perfect (that's why in places that know their stuff, you should never even be asked how you want your lamb done). they didn't ask, but this one is like medium-well.the fatty bits were very nice though. portions were generous, and the mashed potato is absolutely gorgeous - rich and buttery with just a little dash of salt. the vegies were... well, just vegies.

sarge had a steak. was it sirloin or ribeye? can't remember, but the same gripe - a little overcooked. though it still did have some nice, bloody juices in the centre...

t'was quite a lovely experience in general... but perhaps next time we will remind them to keep everything medium rare...

we went on a durian mission after that. bugis was the location to attack... it was a good idea. :) my hands were too dirty to take any pics of those super-yummilicious durians we gobbled down. mmmmm.... durians. there's something very basic and primitive about eating a durian. it brings to mind the days long gone of squatting around newspapers spread on the floor, the family all around, faces and lips and hands all plastered with rich yellow durian flesh.

delicious fruit. delicious memories.

i think durian missions are quite special to me in this very strange way.

ps. we bought a very pretty glass chess set for $9.90! right beside the durian place was this chinky place selling cheapass goods! tidbits, toiletries and what-nots. can't wait for chess-time!

    Sometimes, when I'm sitting, smiling, talking, laughing along... I'm not really there at all.

  • 传奇

    只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼 再也没能忘掉你的容颜 梦想着偶然能有一天再相见 从此我开始孤单地思念 想你时你在天边 想你时你在眼前 想你时你在脑海 想你时你在心田 宁愿相信我们前世有约 今生的爱情故事不会再改变 宁愿用这一生等你发现 我一直在你身旁 从未走远 只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼…

  • consideration

    The act of being considerate. It goes both ways. I think we all have a lot more to learn about it... Myself included. Maybe I just have a little too…
