Lim Peh Tng Lai Liao - Part 1

Since I was on my way home yesterday, I have been busy smsing and calling people to firm up their "bookings". Given that it's the festive periods, restaurant reservations are all the more critical to securing that table.

Was supposed to head down to Ristorante Da Valentino on the day of my touch down and was met with a "Sorry Sir, we're full." reply when I had the good sense to call ahead to make a reservation, albeit a wee bit too late.

Fortunately, Plan B of Cafe Le Troquet was very good also.

Coming back to this blog entry. So there I was firming up headcount for Friday dinner and all but Aloeve responded. I smsed her numerous times until finally I got a "Who's this?" reply. It was fairly common for this to happen since quite a few of the folks didn't not copy down my number despite printing it at the bottom of my timesheet.

Nairmind, I replied "Jaywalk" only for it to go to oblivion again.

Finally, when I landed in Singapore before I called the number. It was a gruffy sounding guy who picked up and it finally dawned on me that the number was incorrect and the whole to and fro exchanges with this number ended with a "Sorry, wrong number".

I got home and fire up my laptop and check my MSN chat history.


Sorry, I copied wrong number!!
