Breaking the Seal of Overindulgence

09 Apr
Good God.
I think it’s DEFINITELY time for detox!
Whoa.
Red wine OVERLOAD yesterday.
After about 4 glass of wine at the hotel bar…headed into Rotterdam.
Started off with a softijs.
🙂
Reminds me of my daddy. I’m not a dessert kinda person…but these have become a, AT LEAST,
once a week addition to my Netherlands diet plan.
Interesting.
Stopped into the Mexican restaurant across the theater for a quick beer to kill
time before the movie.
This was SUCH an uncomfortable scene to watch.
Chick was YOUNG and obviously not all that interested.
When her eyes met mine, it was almost screaming: “HELP ME!”
As I was mesmerized by the spectacle before me, someone got in the way of my view.
I was like, “Ha. Funny…she looks like…oh, it is!”
(Was my friend Vessi.)
This place is just ONE big spread out small town or something, cuz good God.
For a person who doesn’t live here, I sure bump into a lot of people I’ve met!
(Population is around 650,000 Between Schiedam and Rotterdam)
I’m starting to feel I gotta really watch myself, I no longer feel (enjoyably) incognito here.
**sigh**
The demon himself.
OMG.
TOO many of these. TOO many!
(We ended up closing the restaurant and the owner sat down to chat with me…
along with 2 bottles of red wine.
(This, on top of the bottle or so I already downed)
AYE.
See You See Me…again. As always. It’s become my sanctuary here in Holland.

Great atmosphere, food and service.
Below is some new mango concoction.
There’s always a new treat to try as a “welcome” to See You See Me.
Mmmmmmmm. My Pad Thai.
Erin, I told you I like my cilantro!
No mercury in ME man!
😛
At the restaurants I have cappuccino at…I’m pretty well-known now
for my need for SLAGROOM!
(whipped cream)
I don’t however need THIS much…but, as the proper little asian that I am
polish it off as “respect.”
(People spoil me here)
It was really cool getting to know the owner.
She was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but has been in Holland
since she was 7.
We discussed stock trading to tennis to opening up the restaurant to human trafficking to how much I can drink.
(Her observation. **sigh**)
(and get THIS, the woman in the house RIGHT across from hers – Chinese – was/is a part
of a HUGE human trafficking ring. She’s currently in jail but business still runs as usual;
Judging by all the fancy cars the kids and family still continue to consume.)
I’m trying to find the articles, as she said they are splashed all over the internet
however, I have to do it in Dutch. Yikes, just the kind of mission
you want to take on after a night of overloading on red wine.
(Maybe I’ll have Chu or Ant do it for me. Yes, yes. That sounds like a plan!)
😛
Do me a favor, remind me to DETOX.
I need to be a good girl for a few weeks. Lest my liver divorce me.
Thanks.
(Also, gotta be in good form for my new restaurateur friend who’s obsessed with clay court tennis)
