Siew Mai ($4.00)

If I eat one more sweet thing, my entire stomach will spontaneously crawl up my oesophagus.

And being in this state, I’m reminded of the dim sum lunch I had with Gushi last Friday after my SMU interview at 8.15am in the godforsaken morning.

We’ve been dying to have dim sum since…I don’t know when. All I know is that we’ve been dying. Yes. And my last dim sum meal at Crystal Jade at Toa Payoh with my family was such a let down that I would never want to eat at Crystal Jade ever again unless it’s someone’s treat.
