The friend that shouldn't be

Dear you,

I am unsure why only now I am feeling this anger, this frustration, this... this negative feelings towards you. It happened awhile back but only now, I am feeling this feeling that I can only identify as being hurt. Maybe it's the hormones amplifying the feelings.


The questions keep popping up one after another. Over and over. If you were my friend, how could you treat me the way you did? Why did you do what you did? What have I done wrong to you to deserve this? The mixed signals. The confusion.

I feel like calling you or texting you to confront you with my questions. But what is the point? I never got my answers all those years ago and I am not holding my breathe that I will be getting any this time.

I am happy for you and where you are at in life but I do not appreciate you stepping into mine and undermining all the hard work I had put in, on my own, to be where I am now. Can't you be happy for me and leave things be? Couldn't you have just kept it all to yourself? And even if you wanted to approach me, keep it simple and sincere with no distractions, no illusions, no mess with my mind actions.

I want to know. I feel I need to know. I wish I know. Maybe that would be my closure but we all know that's not going to happen. You know why? Because you are selfish. You take what doesn't belong to you. You do what you do and somehow come out of it unscathed. Or maybe you do, I just don't know.

Is it a challenge? A joke? A whim? A fancy? What? Does it amuse you so?

If I only knew. If you only divulged what goes on in your super secretive world. What is due to me.

I am not sure if I should ever see you again or keep in touch. Only time will reveal the best course of action.

Hammer and Tong 412 in Fitzroy

On Saturday, Mr. C decided to bring me to Fitzroy to sample the tasty morsel we've heard so much about at Hammer & Tong. Initially, I was worried that the wait would be long but after a short wait or what felt like a short wait despite the crowd, we were seated.

I was pleased.

After browsing the menu, we placed our orders and scanned about our surroundings.

We had our usual drink- him with his latte and mine, a mug of mocha. The froth was really smooth (and that's one of the ways you can tell if your coffee was made right) and the flavour just perfect. For the mocha, the balance between coffee and chocolate was just balance well.

Breakfast Ramen $15

As for food, Mr. C had the Breakfast Ramen. It was ideal for him as he wasn't in the mood for creamy, rich Aussie brekkie. When it arrived, the waitress kindly poured bacon dashi into his bowl of ramen that had 62c hens egg, bacon, oyster mushroom and spring onion. I had a few mouthfuls and it was simply delicious!

Soft Shell Crab Burger $12

I, on the other hand had the famous Soft Shell Crab Burger. It took a looooong while in arriving and when it did, the wait was worth every single bite. Each bite was orgasmic with the flavours bursting in my mouth. The sauce was yum and the crab, crisp! And yes, the burger looked small when first served but for me, I think it was just the right portion together with my mocha filling my tummy.

I admit that describing the flavours and tastes of the food are not my strong suit but then again, what is? Lol.
All I can say is, the Soft Shell Crab Burger and the Breakfast Ramen is definitely a must have!! 

So, what are you waiting for??
