Thai Accent


My week ended with another farewell lunch from a department head, Mr U. The best thing about him is that he is not my boss at all, yet, he gave me a farewell lunch, just to thank me for helping his department. He is so nice that he asked me to choose a restaurant and choose the food that I want to order (its really hard to find such a nice guy these days). So we decided to head to Thai Accent at Vivocity.

Excellent service and great view (I mean in the future lah, what you see now is the construction of the almost completed Resorts World @ Sentosa). When you enter, they staff will greet you in Thai, which I thought was something which you can’t find in other Thai restaurant like Thai Express. They were friendly and shared with us their chef’s recommendation which help us alot when we were ordering our food.

I’m not really a Thai Food lover but the food just blows me away. The Tom Yam soup was fantastic, they had mushrooms and really big prawns in it. It was spicy but not so spicy that I couldn’t take it. We had sea bass, softshell crab, kangkong and chicken with cashew nuts. Simply, there were no complains about the food. We practically finish up all the food that we had.

I had Thai Ice Tea which was yummy.

This place is a must go and I rate 4.5 out of 5 for it. Pls don’t ask me what was the damage as I did not pay for it and had no chance to take alook at the bill at all.

Its located at Vivocity, #02-145/146.

Farewell Lunch (Part 2) + Packing continues…


I’ve attended a lunch this afternoon at Rice Table @ International Building. This was meant to be a treat by my Head as he was leaving soon and he just wanted to show appreciation for the hardwork that we’ve put in. At the end of the meal, he specially thank me (since I was leaving too). Personally, I was quite touched cause I really felt appreciated. Anyway, I’ll be having another 2 more farewell lunch and I’m determined to put them into words here as I thought they are really meant mentioning.

In the meantime, the packing continue and now then I realise that moving office is equally bad as moving house. There is so much to pack, throw and shred. For the past 3 days, I’ve only managed to clear the papers on my table, I’ve still got the cabinet to go. 4 years ago, when I was transferred to where I was, it was just a simple job, carry the stuff on my hand and off I go. Now, I’ve got to pack my stuff into boxes and move it with me. There are simply too much stuff.

Anyway, tomorrow is the last day, 7 years in the division, 4 years in the department, I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold back my tears (I’m a very emo person), afterall, this is the place where I got to know my wife and started my family. There are many happy memories, memorable times and of course sense of accomplishment.

My packing continues tomorrow…
