I am a crazy fan of good ice cream all my life.
Lately I migrated from 'Baskeen Robins' to this new Nana outlet.
Nana is from Japan and gotten me hooked by its rich
creamy green tea & choco flavours with added corn flakes,
chewy balls and red bean bites with syrup beneath.
Melts in my mouth & I saw heavens!
I took my wifey there on Friday night for a treat
before she flies off to US for a couple of weeks!
Soon, I will be a lonely
bachelor man again.
Next day, Darren dated us out for a chat. I was very flattered
as my late paternal grandpa has 58 grandchildren and Darren
chose to meet me as his only chosen cousin from the brood of my clans.
I treated him to feast on 24 pieces of chicken bites at the
Korean KyoChon's and thereafter to indulge in this
sinful Nana's ice cream
I chose KyoChon & Nana's as they have yet to open
their franchise outlets in Melbourne.
Darren loved them.
Darren and I have been close buddies since we were infants.
We never got along as he was very notorious and rebellious
like a Yakuza triad even when he was a toddler. We both
swore and fought physically so much with bloody bruises as kids.
His father spanked him with rubber tyres when he peed
inside the family's aquarium and all the ocean's marine fishes
floated up the next morning. His father locked him inside
the toilet when he jumped up to grab their brand new
fridge's upper door. He yanked the 1 day old fridge
and it fell flat down to the floor almost killing himself.
His father continued playing mahjong and forgot about
his locked son inside toilet. My Tai-Koo aunty
found Darren sleeping beside the toilet bowl like a cat.
The damaged fridge was beyond repair.
We grew up into our teens and clicked suddenly
like Magnets! I taught him to smoke the first cigarettes when
I dragged him along for my clubbing days. Thank God, he
never picked up all my bad habits and became a
football and badminton player.
He worked in the high profiled investment department for
Robert Kuok before migrating to Melbourne.
