Mahjong and Philip’s Bday

Another mahjong session! woohoo!..and yet another loss! how sad?!
Oh, I only won once and I had 3x North, 3x South, 3x West, 2x North, 3x 5Circles

In the middle of it, Jo & Josh came by and we all surprised Philip with some pieces of cake and a mini-celebration. Jo was cutting the cake into little pieces again :) …thank you!

Dinner was at the Jap place at Willouhby. Was fun sitting and chatting about nothing in particular.

Belated Bday Din at Vincent

Belated birthday dinner with Carmen and Sharon at Vincent, Woollahra; a french restaurant.

We shared the food as usual, and the roast chicken was really quite nice! So was the ‘Baked cantal souffle’.

Watching nrl at pub

Slow lazy Sunday, so at the pub watching nrl. Two TV. One is 5 seconds slower than the other. It makes sense to watch the faster one, however, the audio is from the slower one. So how how?

2014 Badmintion Australian Open

Watching semi-finals of the Badminton Australian Open. Some seeded players are here. There sure is a difference between the ‘cheap’ seats and the premium ones. Sitting first on the cheap seats, it seems ok. But when I stood behind the premium seats, I could see so much better.

The best games were the womens doubles games. Much more fast and exciting.

So good or not so good

“This sushi is soooo good. It is soooo fresh. Yum”
“These sandwiches are soooo nice and fresh”
“These sausages are soooo good”

Would comments like the above make the food taste any better? If you thought that the food aren’t that good or fresh or nice and someone else is saying it, would it affect your thinking?

Or would you just laugh at the silly attempt to project a false sense of luxury?
Or would you pity the ill-informed?
