Some people divide their friends into friends in need and fair weather friends. I have that sort of friends too but among those who remain friends despite our interpersonal ups and downs, I have a special category.
This is the group who, for whatever reason, pampers me. I don’t delve into the whys. Just enjoy the pampering.
Z belongs firmly in this group. Always helpful, always warm, makes the effort to stay in touch, however cramped life is with its myriads of time-consuming distractions.
Best of all, whenever we meet, I’m treated to a meal and given a present. (Yeah, I’m that shallow!)
It’s no different when we met up today, after a 9-month hiatus, during which Z has been all over Europe.
Before we began our meal at the unusually named Mad for Garlic at Suntec City’s Galleria, I was handed a Swarovski box, direct from its headquarters in Austria I was told.
So here I’m wearing my latest present from Z. When I got home, I found the pendant to be a perfect match for a pair of earrings I own.
This post won’t be complete without showing off what I ate (below) at Mad for Garlic which Z chose to buy lunch, based on a recommendation from the Mediacorp magazine 8Days.
