Over at Sunny and Ivan’s

Spoofing, but with all due respect: Photography is His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s favourite past time and I can’t help but feel that picture alludes to that, presenting a very royal moment. Me, surrounded by my esteemed royalties. Ron, Chris, Kien à ma gauche, et Yaokang à ma droite.

Zhiwei, Kevin; fatigué à la fin.

Ron looks on intently while Francis gives the background form and shape.

The National Day weekend may long be over, but memories steeped in high spirits endure. Armed with tubs of ice-cream and an array of great chips like Natural Flavours (Honey Dijon), I cabbed over to Sunny and Ivan’s place with Chris. It’s a nice pad high on the ethnic chic quotient, but unfortunately, I haven’t taken any pictures that will do the owners justice! The pair carved out a nice, plush and understated interior from a nondescript shop house unit in Geylang, ethnic-accenting it with pieces of furniture (like beds, cupboards) custom-made in Chiang Mai. There’s even a weathered, old-school, winding staircase that brought guests to the rooftop where we barbecued wings and partook of limoncello and chips with Yaokang’s addictive dip (a mayo-wasabi concoction). We also shared stories (Chris’ recent talent-scouting work trip in Bangalore, my unpleasant bout of sickness post-Pekin, Ryan recalling LAX, Zhiwei just back from KL with Kevin…) while picking at fried vermicelli and mee goreng doggy packed by the hosts from No Sign Board eatery, claypot rice from Geylang Lorong 33, Sunny’s potato-egg salad which was a little on the sweet side, but made a luscious dessert nonetheless. Ron bought us Katong’s famous otah and a chocolate cake from home; paired with Winston’s lychee liquor, there was very little room for anything else after that except for free-flowing conversations.

We were very happy.
