We were having dinner at Jumbo Seafood with Mr H’s family and a guest from Japan one night. The guest was not keen to eat crabs and that dish was not ordered.
Midway through the meal, Z asked me, “Why didn’t we order crabs?”
I replied that the guest did not want to eat, so the order was not placed. We had arrived after the food order was taken. Hence, I asked if he wanted to order and we could do so.
Z hesitated and declined. He said he did not want to eat.
Five minutes’ later, he asked, “If we are not planning to eat crabs, why did we come to Jumbo for dinner? We can go other places.”
I really laughed out loud at this point.
We ordered a crab in the end. We were deciding non-spicy options such as steamed, salted egg yolk or ginger with spring onion. The other adults had no preference so I thought of trying spring onion. As the waitress was penning down the order, Z suddenly voiced out, “I want salted egg yolk!”
While I had asked almost everyone, I forgot to ask him. He probably realized I wasn’t going to ask him and decided to speak up before the waitress sent the order to the kitchen.
I could only say I was very, very amused.
In the end, he ate the lion’s share of the crab. 😁
