Of shopping and Crispy Combo

Shopping with the opposite sex can be such a refreshing experience, especially when it involved not one, not two but three men, well, at least for a short while. Then again, shopping with 2 guys was also rather fun.

The JR gang, or whatever that remains of the gang were supposed to meet out for a gathering yesterday. We were supposed to go for KTV and then the Prickly Bush. Turned out, the latter was closed, while the former was not a good choice since 2 members of the gang had to run earlier. So we went to talk cock at Starbucks instead. Sigh, whats the point of meeting when you guys had to run off to meet other people?? Tsk tsk tsk.

Anyway, I certainly wasn't about to go back home since I was already out. Besides, home was empty yesterday and I would just end up facing my iBook with Ozzie irritating me in the background. So, I wanted to go shopping. With 3 guys in tow. Well, I did give them an alternative of going home or just going off. I did not mind shopping alone actually. However, being the gentlemen that they were, HJ, DK and Tan wanted to go along with me. After a while, my 3rd bodyguard had to leave for another appointment and I was left with only 2 guards.

The most interesting episode of the day was however not the shopping itself, but rather the dinner with HJ and DK. We went to the The Cafe Cartel, which if anyone had been there before, had a self-ordering system. Patrons would jot down the serial numbers of the food that they want on a writing pad and then make their orders at the cashier. My 2 guards were feeling rather full since they already had a meal before me. Both were saying that they would not want to eat that much and stuff like that. I, on the other hand, having skipped lunch was rather hungry so I made my order and passed the ordering pad to HJ. And then DK went to the cashier and made the order. Which was then he realized that our dear HJ had written down the wrong serial. Instead of just potato wedges, Mr HJ had ordered for a combo set for 3 persons!

In the end, we had 1 potato wedges, which was the correct order.

1 macroni - correct order but it sucked big time, do not ever ever order this when you are at The Cafe Cartel.


1 ice cream waffles - correct order.


1 huge Cripsy Combo consisting of more wedges, chicken wings, shrimps, 1 gigantic piece of chicken cutlet and 1 gigantic fish fillet - wrong order!.


In the end, we did manage to finish all the food, with the exception for the macroni (cos it sucked), which was quite a feat considering that out of the 3 persons having the meal, two were supposedly to be full and the third was a girl! It was rather hilarious actually! I was just telling the guys that it was a lucky thing that HJ ordered the 3 persons combo and not the 5 persons combo. That would be a diaster. And my diet just nosedive deeper into the toilet bowl, again...

In any case, I had a fun day shopping. Thanks for the company guys! :)
