Comp Sugar StP

Guess what these are. They’re sugar cubes! Served up all fancy-schmancy post-lunch at this French restaurant named Saint Pierre. All they were destined for was our coffee, but we were terribly impressed and ooh’d and aah’d, until the waiter sighed, “You have no idea how long it takes to do that”. Haha.

They do a fantastic foie gras too. Even as a starter, there was a generous chunk the size of my handphone. We also caught a glimpse of the chef himself, Emmanuel Stroobant, who smiled and looked pleasant, contrary to my stereotyped vision of Gordon Ramsey bawling at his underlings. Best part? It was a sponsored lunch. Woot.

    Loving those sugar cubes – they’re so funky!! We were once served flat sugar cubes shaped like flowers. There was a hole in the middle of each one and they were stacked on a stick. Too good to eat!

    Sorry – forgot – did I remember to tag you with the MEME that Mothership so kindly left for me? If I did and you’ve deleted it because you absolutely refuse to do it (and your time is too precious) I understand. But if you do want to do it, drop by and tell us a little more about yourself….

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
