Ling is right smack in her first month pregnancy blues, what with round the clock bouts of nausea (she’s BTW glad that I can do most of Hannah’s chores including feeding and bathing, except for brushing teeth that I still can’t get a handle of). For dinner this evening, she quipped that she needed extra-spicy food to help mask those inclinations to vomit. So, she asked for Thai food.

As it happens, there’s a delightful little Thai stall situated at a coffee shop near my workplace. We’ve checked out the place before for dine-in lunches and takeout dinners already, and the fare is decent. This time round though, the wife and I had a massive miscommunication about what we both wanted, and she ended up ordering food enough for four adults when it’s just 2 1/4 adults between the three of us, at most.

Where’s Matt to help us eat all this food? There’s beef noodles, green curry, olive fried rice, Thai fish cake, tom yam soup, white rice, and a plate of fish cakes!

Half an hour of struggle later and while I was driving back, I wheezed:

“I don’t think I’m going to ever want to touch Thai food again for a month.”

Ling went:

“I feel so bloated I’m going to merlion. Where’s the plastic bag…?”

Upon which Hannah chimed in and declared:

“Dinner was very good. I like it!”

So there.:)

    Actually, I think the ang mo’s policy on food-clearing has changed since last June’s extravaganza at the Din Tai Fung @ NEX. I feel like I’m still wearing some of what I ate that evening!

    Still, the food above looks too good to resist. :p

    LOL. I take it that this was a dinner Ling organized? Must had been when I was away for that China trip, otherwise between the three of us we would have been able to finish up the food easily.:)

    If I remember correctly, we managed to scarf it all down, but boy did I order way too much food. It was all delicious though. :)

    Dinner looked good indeed! Ling I hope you’re doing well, and congrats to your little family for it’s soon-to-be new addition (the months will whizz by quickly). I am sure the little bub will be as adorable as Hannah. She’s a star! :)
