When Jerry is out to attend a special function, I don't wait up for him to arrive. On these occasions, he usually comes home a little past midnight. Thatâ??s quite reasonable. However, a few days ago, he went over the edge by coming home really late. I was beside myself the whole morning and thought that somebody seriously needed a scolding. Hmp! :-O
Part of me wanted to blow the situation up by relenting to my bratty tantrums and a good part of me wanted to just make him accede to my special wishes for the day. Thankfully, the latter prevailed. One of these â??demandsâ?? was a good lunch in a restaurant of my choice. It didnâ??t take me long to arrive at a decision. Shortly, we were off to La Gondola at the Waterfront Hotel for my favorite salmon and scallop with risotto. The perfect ambiance, impeccable service and heavenly food distracted me in a positive way.
Yeah, I am very easy to appease.
now you see it, now you don't...

As an aside, I would choose La Gondola of Waterfront at all times if Iâ??m craving for some authentic and reasonably priced Italian or fusion food. La Buona, La Tegola, Roma Mia, and other Italian resto wannabe donâ??t even come close. Not even Tinderbox, which the A diners frequent, is comparable. They are either more expensive or they lack the ambiance or service my favorite resto indulges me.
