My best friends from college planned this get-together/birthday dinner/send-off party a couple of months ago for our dear friend, Czarina, who was celebrating her birthday and was also preparing to leave the country for graduate studies. We met up in UP and come dinner time, we headed over to our new go-to place, UP Town Center. Most of the restos were full, so we chose Boon Tong Kee. It was everyone’s first time to try eating out in the Singapore-based restaurant which has been in the country for more than a year now. They serve probably one of the tastiest boiled chicken dishes I’ve come across so far.
Our tables were laden with these tasty dishes, thanks to our birthday celebrator. I let them choose from the array of meat, vegetables, noodles, and soups in the menu.
Over sumptuous food, my friends and I bonded, discussed about life and love and happiness and other current events. Lol. I love how we can talk about one thing and move on to a completely unrelated topic and just laugh and share stories with each other for hours on end. We never run out of anecdotes, but at the same time we tackle sad or unfortunate experiences. We make sure that each meet up is some sort of a learning session, too!
One thing I’ve learned that day: the no-fail combination for a fun-filled day is this – good food and good friends.
