Dear Blogger,

Ipy came home earlier than expected again. So many things to catch up and do with him.

When he landed in Singapore, it was a day after his birthday. Since he arrived in the morning, we decided to have breakfast at Swensen's at Terminal 2. I know Swensen's offers complimentary ice cream to the birthday boy/girl.

Ipy bought a bike while I was at my sewing class. Now that he'll be office-based here, he thought that driving a car to work won't be cost-effective. With new ERP gantries in the works and ERP/parking/oil rates on the up, I couldn't agree more.

Ipy at Ramen Ten

We had dinner at Ramen Ten, which was alright. What was not alright was the inconvenient paying mechanism that was being introduced. Apparently, Ramen Ten had a 50% discount offer of its sushi menu after 9 p.m. Since we arrived at about 8 p.m. and had already placed an order, we didn't know about the promotion.

We were only told about it 30min before the promotion started. We were also told to close the bill before we can enjoy the promotion. With all the ruckus happening in the restaurant, we didn't quite understood what was goin on. So we just went along.

By 9 p.m., we were already full, but I wanted a last taste of a plate of sushi. After having that last piece of sushi, it suddenly occurred to me that we had already closed our bill! So would we be charged another 10% service charge and 7% GST for this plate of sushi???

My guess was right! Of course I wasn't happy! We only closed the bill before because of whatever gibberish the manager told us earlier. She didn't explain to us that if we continue eating, it'll be a new bill! So I protested!

We got away with a complimentary plate of sushi.
