6 Jul 2014 – Without the Scream!
Wed: The Angriest Man in Brooklyn**Some people have bad days. Henry has one every day. Always unhappy and angry at the world including everyone in it. At the doctor’s office, Henry is reveals that he has a brain aneurysm. This news makes Henry even angrier, yelling at the doctor demanding to know how much time he has left. Faced with Henry’s anger and insults, the doctor tells him he has only 90 minutes…
Thu: Lunch at Glory***and to Mt E visiting 4th aunt who seems much better. Dropped off food to Clem who is going thru’ some stomach flu. Dinner at Plaza SIN with Jo and John.
Fri: Happy 4th. Safe journeys to John back to HKG and thank you for one of the most delicious cookies. Took the MRT to One Raffles Place/Basement to check out Munch, where Clem is one of the partners in this location. Just had lunch at the airport, so did not taste the food there.
The Norwegian painter Munch with the painting Scream is more my frame of mind at present 🙂
Passed by these fan looking banana leaf plants on the way to Les&Ivy. Have been fascinated with these Ravenala madagascariensis, commonly known as Traveller’s Tree or Traveller’s Palm ever since a child. B/W pix from the mid1950s at Raffles Hotel then. And today, still is the logo for the Raffles International Hotels & Resorts. Quite appropriate, considering the name Traveller’s Tree!
Appreciations to Les&Ivy for champagne, yummy caviar and mussels (cooked by Les).The only way to celebrate 4 Jul 🙂 🙂
Sat: extending a helping hand at Munch*** and to try out their food. Will recommend the John Dory and Chicken Caesar Salad, quite good!
