    One of my ex-colleagues from Autodesk, Mubashir, came to Singapore for his business trip (he’s from India, by the way). I have always worked with him over phone or Skype and it’s interesting to actually meet him face to face for the first time.

    It was kind of funny because I only realised that I won’t be able to recognise him at the time when we are meeting. Yeah the realisation is slow. I know I can’t really recognise him and he may not know his way that well. So I decided to meet at the nearest train station of the hotel where he was staying. Turns out that it wasn’t such a wise choice because the train station is crowded. It’s not as crowded as the usual since we met on a weekday. Nevertheless, that moment when I realised I don’t have his photo on Whatsapp and have to go to his Linkedin to see his photo so that I can recognise him is pretty funny for myself.

    Anyway, he looked different from the profile photos on the office Skype (when I was still working at Autodesk). Well, people do change. After all, he is already married with a kid ever since 2014 when we first started working in the same team.

    As a host, I recommended him to Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao restaurant since he mentioned that he wanted to try Chinese food.

    Well, I love food from Crystal Jade but never tried the chili crab xiao long bao personally. Well, it’s awesome! Would I order it again? Definitely yes!

    Knowing the type of Chinese food that my Indian friends like, I recommended him to try the Kungbao Ji Ding (basically spicy chicken with cashew nuts). This is the fried chicken version which I have not seen before…
