4 Apr 2014 – For Good Irish Company
Tue: good of Leo & Justin to drop by helping to finish the food before travelling. Looking forward to seeing their project started and have already challenged Leo that I will be visiting in Dec when things are up and running.
Wed: appreciations for delightful Irish company of Carmel and her mom. Cold chicken salad, scorns and Norwegian Royal Tea, thanks to May. King Harald V and Queen Sonia have been used but there is still Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Princess Märtha Louise and her husband Ari Behn…
Part of the sales proceeds go to charity, must say it is rather good sport of the Norwegian Royal Family !
The Lunch Box***Ila seeks her husband’s love and hopes to cook her way thru’ his heart. Through a rare mix-up of the famous ‘dabbawalas’ of Mumbai, the lunchbox with the delicious food Ila had prepared for her husband instead gets delivered to Saajan, a widower. Realizing the mistake of the delivery, she writes Saajan a note thus unfolding an episode in their life in a series of compelling and sincere notes they exchange through the lunchbox.
Thu: The Grand Budapest Hotel****adventures of Gustave, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.
A story about the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune – all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
Thank you KimBeng&Mindy for Japanese dinner at Wahiro***Pleasant stroll on East Coast Road with many new eateries popping up.
Ice cream dessert at Marble slab in I12 and here I am (pix credits to KimBeng) pigging on my favourite flavours, dark chocolate and coffee! The beautiful blooms on the sidewalks are from this tree, Lagerstroemia, most probably L. speciosa, the Rose of India – many thanks to Brian for his knowledgeable info of our local flora & fauna.
