“ORD” means a lot for Singaporean males who had to serve a compulsory national service. After about 2 years of serving the army, that “ORD” moment is the climax, the moment we are all waiting for.
Mine ended abruptly, too fast, too soon and left a cliffhanger kind of situation for me that bugged for more than a year. This time round, it is Mu Yao’s turn so besides throwing a bash in celebration of his ORD, we hope this will give a nice ending to his army life and as a way to thank him for supporting this blog all this while.
We were also trying out this portable flash gadget that Mu Yao just got. They called this kind of photography “strobist”. I have no idea what that means. However, the effects looked great.
P.S The muruku and cookies were our contributions.
Bread with sesame seeds embed to it was being served with butter, something new in Black Sheep Café. Love the fragrant, fluffy and warm bread.
The first item is Chili Cheese “Rice”, Mu Yao’s favourite combat ration except this is Chef Ratha’s rendition of it. While the Risotto was a little too soggy as we were late for the meal I found the overall taste quite delicious and I enjoyed it. However, on retrospective Chef Ratha and we felt that a little bit more of that spicy punch would make this a really good dish.
The Crispy Pork Cheeks received endless omphs and ahs from my fellow dinners. One of them exclaimed that he won’t mind coming back to Black Sheep Café just for this. The meat of the Crispy Pork Cheeks is very tender.
Hope Mu Yao had a memorable ORD meal and to all who have just ORDed this month and last month, Happy ORD!
