Post exam chilling yesterday involved some Chinese takeaway (if anyone's wondering, China Kitchen is currently doing a 20% all takeaways deal)and renting Le Fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain on video. Oh what a wonderful film! It was loads better than I expected and it even won over Blai, who wasn't at all keen on the idea of renting it!

Today, I visited Ekachai over at Liverpool Street with Kim Kian. The place was packed with City suits out on their lunch break. Ekachai sells Malaysian and Thai food and we visited just to try their laksa which we read a good review of. Well...first strike came when the waitress seated the couple behind us in the queue before us. Hello? We're two people as well and just because we're not blonde and tall doesn't mean that the rules of the queue don't apply to us. Second strike was the description of the laksa - Penang laksa. Penang laksa is a clear fishy noodle soup. Very nice but not the curry laden thing that they gave us. This was Singaporean laksa. Third strike was the absolute sweetness of the dish! The laksa was sweet! I do not recommend the laksa dish at all and I saw that a man didn't finish his stir fry dish so I don't suggest that either...whatever it was. But the char kway teow (fried rice noodles) did look good and I might go back to try that.
