I reached Singapore on 25th Oct and I was still in my "Korea mode" till now. I am very happy because I can get to see 재 again in Singapore today. He wanted to check out Dempsey so off we went to Dempsey. Ermmm...although I am a 100% Singaporean but I have never been to Dempsey before ㅎㅎㅎ
Both of us preferred bus as our mode of transport so we took bus no. 7 to Dempsey. Somehow, we missed our stops and overshot all the way to Clementi! Dempsey was not that far from Clementi. I suggested taking a taxi to Dempsey because the restaurant I had in mind would be closed if we had waited for our bus. Forgot to explain to Jae that certain restaurants in Singapore will be closed after the last order for lunch time and it will be reopened at around 6pm. During this period of closing, it is known as split shift to the waiters and waitresses.
I brought him to "The White Rabbit" at Harding road. The place was a restored old chapel and located off Dempsey but it was within walking distance to the cafes and restaurants at Dempsey. I chose "The White Rabbit" because it looks place with nice ambiance from most of the online reviews.

You must not eat this too slowly because cheese taste better when its warm ^^
We never knew ox tail can be so big.
The actual ox tail looked bigger than what was reflected in this picture.
Jae stacked up the bones to take a picture.
I thought that stacked up bones looked like a tower ㅋㅋㅋ

We walked to Dempsey and decided to have a cup of tea at PS cafe. It was raining the whole afternoon, otherwise it would be nice to take the outdoor seating..
I don't make a good local guide. Felt apologetic towards 재 for leading the wrong directions and not being able to recognise the way/buildings. This happened a few times that day ㅎㅎㅎ I am soooo ashamed of myself. Although we missed our bus stops and had to figure out how to get to our destinations, I truly enjoyed every moment with him around. At certain point of time, I felt I was the tourist while he was the host ㅎㅎㅎ so so paiseh(hokkien). "Paiseh" means "embarrassed"..
