I’ve talked about how I always enjoy Christmas – it brings back fond memories. This last Christmas evening was no exception. I found out a dear friend was pregnant; 12 of us got together and ate hor fun, fried rice, fried bee hoon, sushi, ham, sausages, salad, sotong balls, fish fingers and assorted drinks, and we shared a log cake from Awfully Chocolate, which was left in the open in a hotel room i.e. unchilled for a few hours and turned out to be yummy but a tad dry; and we talked and joked and goggled at Open Season, Transformers and part of the hilarious Hot Fuzz – it was amazing how silent we were at some portions of the spectacular Transformers.
Also, earlier in the day, when I picked up the log cake from the Awfully Chocolate branch at Sembawang Hills Estate, I also tried some hei ice-cream, the dark chocolate ice-cream that Awfully Chocolate sells. It was absolutely delicious – like premium dark chocolate made cloyingly smooth, almost liquid, the rich creaminess of the ice-cream superbly offsetting the bitterness of the dark chocolate. Sore-throat-inducing, if one over-indulges :p
The lady who served me was incredibly chirpy and polite and full of Christmas cheer, even though she was working alone in the store on Christmas day. I hope she had as good a Christmas as I did.
