A surprise gift from the restaurant.

We were booked to dine in a Chinese restaurant along Beach Road. The place was well known for its Teochew food. As usual, the place was full that night.

A waitress checked the reservation list and spotted my friend's name. We were ushered to table which could accommodate the 5 of us. As we ordered our food, Lim the owner chef came and greeted my friend. They knew each other well from the reaction I witnessed.

As we sat down to have our Chinese tea, Lim brought a bottle of what seemed to be a white frosted drink to us. "Hey this is the best sake that I have in my collection and it will go well with the dishes you've ordered" Lim boastfully told us.

"Yes, we knew Gary pretty well". I replied.
