Singapore Visit 2013 (Feb 22-25, 2013)

Had a quick visit to Singapore to get some ‘stuff’ from my good friend, Edward, and to meet up with good friends I have not seen in a while.

This time, I chose to stay with another good College friend, Hazel.

Since I was arriving on Friday noon, Edward decided to take the day off to accompany me during the day. Edward picked me up at the airport. We left my bags at Hazel’s place first then went to get late lunch at a Japanese place.

We went around the mall to look for Singtel to inquire about their iphone 5. My sister’s been bugging me to goto Singapore to buy one for here. Edward offered to use his renewal plan to get the phone for free. My sister can pay him at a much lower rate.

Dinner with College Friends

At around 7pm, we went to look for Artichoke – Hazel’s pick for dinner.

Stacey’s and Dilbert

Judy Gallagher and Kathy Kelly took me to lunch at Stacey’s. It’s a cute little place located on Main Street in downtown Pleasanton, California serving Fresh California Cuisine.
According to Judy, the owner of the place is also the author of Dilbert, Scott Adams. No wonder, the menu has some funny anecdotes and side comments. Just read their philosophy:
Our Philosophy
No matter how finicky you are, our servers are trained to resist the urge to slap you senseless. Feel free to ask for changes to your meal. We can add garlic, delete spices, remove meat if you’re a vegetarian, whatever change you like as long as it’s legal. And if no one is watching, we’re flexible on the legal thing too.

A sample from their lunch menu:

They were also selling Dilbert dolls.

Judy got one for me!
