IT was nice to have a dinner outside home. So after the tennis game, my family members were wondering where to go for dinner, and so I proposed to go to Dempsey Hill. It's a beautiful place and I've been thinking of bringing them to there.
Dempsey Hill was previously occupied by Civil Service Club. Over the years, it was tranformed into a home for fine dining, wine house, lifestyle and designer's collection. I always like "green" places (and that is why I like Potong Pasir ) so Dempsey Hill is no exception. I also like the mysterious feeling. This is because one needs to walk/drive for a distant through 'jungle-like' pathway to access the place. You know, that kind of "you-dun-know-what-you-are-in-for" kind of feeling.
I recalled, I came upon this place by chance, 5 years ago - when I'm still a newbie in sales (not with SH yet then). I was meeting a customer whom was selling red wines. Then, I was walking up the hill, I was cursing myself: "Wah liao eh, who the spider would come here". Once I reached there, I immediately fell in love with the place. After I finished the meeting, I spent some quiet moments, exploring the place myself. Since then, I always wanted to re-visit this place.
They enjoyed their night there, too. We were having seafood at Long Beach Resturant. Chilli Crab was nice but too small, definately not as big as the one I had, on my last year birthday. After the nice dinner, I proposed driving them around showing the place. We stopped by Ben & Jerry for Ice-Cream. I have to comment, that the shop may be beautiful, but the waitresses inside are even more lovely. One is pretty cute, reserved and quiet, another is pretty too, but she was rather errmm.. too friendly. When she talked to you, she made sure every sentence ended with a blink blink.. e.g. something like: "do you prefer to have our Coffee favour ..." ** blink blink blink**. Oh man, how come the electricity current here so strong one.. stronger than that of Fiona Xie. Too bad, Zhixian was outside smoking. haha... Anyway, Zhixian got back some compensation when he asked the quieter girl to take photo for us ....
