once upon a norza

i am norza and this is my blog

It's been a very busy week. I'm now at the New Working Place. My space is double the size of my Old working space(!!) and it even has a window with a nice view of outside since I'm on the really high level of the building. I know lah...what's the big deal with windows but I've been cooped up in a really tiny space for almost 2years. That email joke about being in jail is better than working in a cubicle is definitely true for me! I don't have to go to the toilet to know whether it's raining or sunny now. heh.

The people were nice generally but I still missed the people back at the Old Place. It's too quiet here...it's like the exam period here where everyone is doing their revision studiously. I miss A's loud-voice. I missed my lunch partner, Haley and the occasional makan kakis, Mur and kak eton. I miss talking cock with G, POS and the team. Generally I just want some noise lah. fortunately I have my grados and a 200mb of mp3s to keep me sane.

The first day I was here, I wasn't given a good impression of the Big Boss (BB). She sounds intimidating and saying NO is not in her dictionary. Really sounds like my exBB lor but I hope to keep a clean record with her. Will try not to step on her toes although trying and doing are 2 different things altogether lah.

I sooooo missed the food at the Old Place...my chikin chop with oriental sauce, fish&chips, chikin rice...the more I talk about food, the more hungry I am right now. And it's only 0930...haha.

So far I'm not really impressed with the food here. My new colleagues have brought me to the 2 so-called femes eating places, the Amoy Street Hawker and Maxwell watever. The food variety for non-halal i enormous although I can't say that for halal ones. It's really pathetic and it's either Indian or Malay. maybe I haven't explored enough. My friend who is working in this area wanted to bring me to Fig&Olive but "you have to fork out at least $10". I decided not to risk it because if it's not as good as my Bibim Bap which is:
1) yummy'licious
2) filling
3) cost less than $10
...I'm definitely not going for it. :P Call me stingy but I would rather have the instant chikin rice at 7-11. (Not bad actually..hehe)

So if anyone who is working in Tanjong Pagar area and thinks that I'm talking BS about the food here, pls drop me a msg and let's have lunch together! :)

Maybe others have diff perception but I don't like going to FigOlive.. very expensive for small plates and not tasteful enough to fork out $10+++

Yeah, if you're at Tjg Pagar, Amoy St is the place where majority of them ventures off looking for halal food.

lagipun, with the influx of FT Indians, more and more Indian shops are springing up there, to cater to the demands :-)

Ohhhhh so it wasnt tt ur boss wanted to discuss lunch but was to evade the F&O lunch? kehrkehrkehr its ok u can tell me if u don wanna go there :P

Yeah i usually just buy something from 7-11 like Chix pie (polar puff), d sandwiches, pau, siew mai.

Actually to me, Amoy St is quite ok lah... the nasi ayam is superlicious (but must know which shop). I got a pamphlet abt an indian shop somewhere but cant remember... Asia bldg or something.. bangsa paper dosai and the lot! ARGHHH must explore!!

would you be near to tanjing pagar plaza? if so, there's a coffeeshop at blk 103 that serves sedap malay food. fuji xerox building has good halal thai food, somewhere across M hotel has a magic-wok lookeylikey. if you have time to travel to PSA's cafeteria there's a western cafe called SEYU which is halal, and is the cheaper version of swensens :) and as yanni said, BANQUET CHINA SQ!! you must must MUSTTTT makan the fried fish soup! ;)
