Anyway, back to Ramen. Remember my philosophy of food: NEVER QUEUE. Oops, I did it again. What to do? My sister hates me, so I had to queue.
Of course, everyone was late. After living in New York, I learned never to be late. Tardiness is a very bad Singaporean habit; it wastes the time of the on-time person. To New Yorkers, time is precious, and as they don’t want to waste their time, they won’t do it to others too.
So I queued alone and as I was queuing, I texted them. Three very bad excuses, so bad I didn’t know whose was the worst:
1. “So sorry! Overslp…”
2. “I had to meet my friend to discuss for the emcee-ing tomorrow!”
3. “Jam on ECP!”
They said they would be here in 15 minutes.
And tick tock, 15 minutes past and I got a table, I asked my friends if they are already here. And they would take another 15 minutes.
Me: Hurry! People in the queue are dagger-staring me. Should I give my seat up?
Luke: This is a test of your resilience to public scrutiny. Be a true blue Singaporean and refuse to move! Act like nothing’s wrong.
Ha. Then I gave up my table. And moved outside to wait again.
When they finally arrived, I was starving. I don’t like to eat when I’m hungry because I always over-eat. I like to eat constantly. So of course we over-ate.
Marutama is my favoritest ramen place. I always call it the Basketball Ramen because of the sign, and because I used to play basketball, and because I can’t remember names. I have to admit, this time, there was something different. The broth wasn’t as thick and flavorful BUT that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In the past, I couldn’t finish the noodles and soup, but this time, I finished everything. It was partly because I was hungry but also because the broth wasn’t as excessive, as jer lak. Maru-他妈 的 蛋 (Marutama’s eggs) are the best of all the ramen restaurants because the yolks are truly runny. Add the fried garlic to the ramen – very divine. I love garlic.
