Outing at S'pore East coast

Most memorable thing was roaming testing done with Starhub team. We actually went for outing on east coast. It was great fun. Testing was a nominal thing. Team had planned for lunch in coastal area Indian Hotel. I was accompanied by Sabrina (The lady boss), Rachel (The cute lightweight girl), Fiona (Fairly family lady), Gek Choo (Elderly religious vegetarian lady). All ladies with Chinese origin/look but very caring attitude. We placed the order, I still remember the order :

1. Dal Makhani - Sabrina asked to have bucket full of daal after seeing same on next table
2. Butter chicken- As it was must to have non-veg
3. Naan- 1 Mango, 1 cheese, 2 butter.
4. Veg rice + some spicy sup for Gek Choo.

I went to wash my hands as Indian culture. Ladies were confused, why this guy went away.. when lunch is ready. I started eating with right hand.. cutting piece of naan with fore finger & support of mid finger & thumb.. as typical roti eater does. It was amazing thing for ladies. Sabrina tried cut roti with fingers but couldn't.
And Rachel was cutting her naan with fork & spoon. Some how she managed to finish her stuff but couldn't digest it. As on next day she told she had bad stomach & had to go bathroom many times. Gek Choo had ordered some spicy rice which to too much hot to eat. She keep on drinking water along with sup & rice.

I tell you, I really enjoyed the lunch. I guess, it was very difficult thing to digest for ladies. Before landing to hotel, I was agreed to sponsor the party. Bill was some 80$ = 80X33 = 2640RS which will go for party of 15 people in India. Never mind. Bill was refunded by my company & that lunch was most memorable lunch in S'pore.

Great stuff..
Great people... to keep long lasting memories..
