Spaghetti...

It all started on Valentine's Day. My "date" and I decided to eat at an Italian restaurant called Italia Bella Pizzeria. Well, something like that. It's located at SS2. Went there at 7 something, saw the crowd outside, and decided to give up. I was craving badly for spaghetti T_T I like their spaghetti. Tasted so good the last time I tried my friend's dish (I had lagsana at that time). In the end, we ate at Genki Sushi, Pyramid. I told my "date", "Sushi is the fastest, we can just grab it of the conveyor belt." After seating down at the table, my "date" asked, "So, what is there to grab from the belt?" There were only cakes, other desserts and the boiled prawn sushi. Lesson learnt - stay at home during Valentine's Day.

After that, I kept on searching for delicious spaghetti, something similar to the one at SS2, but I haven't found any so far. They were good, but it wasn't the one with white creamy sauce and herbs like SS2's. Then, my boss suggested Backofen, an Austrian bakery near my office. So I went there. I had their Smoked Salmon spaghetti in creamy sauce. It was great! Today...I packed it back to my office for lunch. They even gave plastic fork and spoon for me to use. For some odd reason, my lady boss, her daughter and my colleague were standing around me, watching me eat. Feeling awkward, I decided to start eating. I shuffed my fork into the spaghetti, intending to mix it well with the sauce, and...

Steffi: AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
Lady Boss: AAAAAAAAaaaaaaah!
Lady Boss' Daughter: EEEEEEEEE!!!
Colleague: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

... Never eat spaghetti in creamy sauce with plastic fork and spoon. You'll find yourself covered in sauce, from head to toe. Literally. Everyone scrambled for tissues, to wipe the sauce off my hair, my body, my face...Phew. Well, it was just a little sauce, but still...

After that, I used stainless steel fork and spoon. No problems from then onwards. How was the spaghetti? Delicious, like usual.

ashes: HAhahaha, actually, it was simultaneously lah. All of us "aaah!" at the same time...it was unexpected, flying orangey sauce. I think my hair smelt a bit like salmon after that.

Eng: It's odd isn't it. It splattered everywhere, quite far also, but they didn't get any on them. Wasted. No lah...the lesson learnt was never use bouncy plastic utensils to eat spaghetti in creamy sauce.

jyrenze: I know I always find insects in my food, but if it's worms, I will do more than just screaming. Probably run around the whole office going berserk, or running to the loo to throw up.
