My auntie lah, who else? So in the midst of a very hectic work morning, I met up with her.
My auntie picked me up from my office and together we went down to the Starling basement carpark because she was too chicken to go by herself.
We were early and we sat outside Nam Heong, waiting for them to open. It was nice and quiet. When Nam Heong first opened its doors, the opening promotions were so attractive that there was a perpetual crowd hogging the entrance.
|The promo period is over.|
But the hype has since died down and I finally have a chance to go inside.
The interior decor has a more western cafe feel to it rather than a kopitiam and what you see sticking out on top of the table is an i-pad for ordering. Nice. So instead of writing your orders on an order chit, you simple swipe and tekan-tekan.
I asked my auntie if she was hungry and she told me that she had eaten some cream crackers for breakfast. As for me, I also had a light breakfast but wasn't hungry because of the stress of rushing stuff before I came out and also because I had a meeting to attend shortly after that (drat!).
My auntie opted for a hot tea and as usual I like my Kopi O and requested for less sweet. But when I took a sip, it was very sweet. Bah!
Looking through the menu, I selected only two items.
Siew Mai and Teochew Mai.
So kedekut, ah? No lah. Both of us were not hungry that was why I did not order much. Honestly, due to my anxiety on office matters, I could not taste the dim sum properly.
So I shall refrain from passing judgment. I have to come here on a relaxed state of mind before I can enjoy the food.
I hope that when we next meet up, I would not be so tense and can have a much better time with my auntie.
My auntie wanted to buy something from Starbucks and I pandai-pandai tell her that there is a Starbucks at The Starling. Later I realized it has not opened shop yet.
Anyway, I will meet up with my auntie again in a few weeks time for another makan session.
