Ping.sg Outing at Essential Brews on 15th September 2007
The Ping.Sg outing. Initially supposed to be at NYDC or something, but eventually settled down at Essential Brews.
Since i walked from the MRT station in this hot summer afternoon, i was half drenched by the time i reached. And because i was expecting to see Xizor, i actually walked around the entire place, and even up before i 'acknowledged' daphne and gang.
Granted we were supposed to meet at 2:30, but it wasn't until 3:30 that we began to order, and around 15 minutes later before our food/drinks came.
The Cajun Dory that i ordered was pretty nice, but it wasn't filling to say the least. Well, it IS a dory, so what was i expecting? The jasmine rice with er, green tea sauce tasted kind of weird. Maybe it IS an 'acquired' taste. Haha. It cost around $14 and some $5 for my Camomile tea.
The 'Cajun dory'
The 'Camomile' Tea
You're supposed to pour the honey in, else it doesn't taste sweet.
And if you look carefully, there's a ball of wire inside the tea, which i suppose is the Camomile leaves itself. After some explanation from Jzin, i was supposed to take it out when i'm satisfied with the taste. Truth is i'm not used to this, and i'm better off with instant lipton Camomile tea i suppose. HaHa..~
The erm, food that jzyn ordered. Keep thinking its pumpkin rice, but i'm pretty sure its not! (After looking at his blog, i realised that its carrot soup with 2x servings of jasmine rice.)

A little close-up
All in all, we had daphnemaia, jzin, xizor, xinyun, brennan, me, paced and daphne's friend
As with any other ping outing, we had a lot of fun, and its nice to have a face to attach to the nickname you see in the shoutbox~
We left later, and xinyun and xizor had went off together too. Last i heard they went exploring Holland V on their own =)
(Disclaimer: I'm pretty sure it wasn't a date, but hey, you'll never know!)
Jzin took some pictures of his own, and daphne took some pictures as well~
