What was I doing in this family restaurant designed for those who have young children? Actually, I was meeting a blog-mate who had her family with her. I'm curious. Would it be weird for singles (or non-parents) to dine here?
I got to know tt because she was a blog-mate of hinlin and suckuo, whom I had met during the 2008 Chinese New Years. After posting articles about our gathering, tt started to read my blog, and I started reading hers. However, we never got the chance to meet in person. After my return to Taiwan, we tried to arrange a meeting, but in vain. A while back, when I was still addicted to Plurk, we had so much fun interacting there. But then I quick Plurking, and thus blog remained the only means through which we could interact. tt had been enthusiastic with the London Paddington series. But because in the end she did not get the gift I was giving out, I said, jokingly, that her special prize was meeting me. And that became an other motivation for our meeting.
Onion soup. 洋蔥湯

tt's daughter and I have so much in common. We have the same star sign, and we also like to eat the same things! We both like corn and strawberries. Neither of us like mayo on our salads!

This restaurant was a great choice! There's food for everyone, and even toys. We really appreciate tt's husband picking me up and dropping me off at the MRT station, and also taking care of the kids. But I finally see why people say 'daughters are the fathers' lover in their past lives'. When I asked tt's girl if she wanted to come home with me to see my kitty, she said no. Then I asked if I could take her mother. First she said no, but then agreed. When I finally asked if I could take her father, she instantly said no, and continued: you can take mum! LOL!!!
