My mom wanted to eat crab as Singapore was famous for its Singapore chili crab dish. Therefore, 8 of us went to one of the crab restaurants located not too far from my brother's place.
It was five minutes to six pm when we reached. We forgot that today was Saturday and there were lots of people queuing before us. Yalama! If we had known early, we would go there early too.

While waiting, we put up our order. We took turn in queuing. First me, second my brother, and last one was my hubby. It took us 1 hour and 20 minutes until we got our table.
Oh, happy no? But to our nightmare, we had to wait for another one hour until our food arrived. Yalama kheno!
The best thing was, while we were eating, we still saw many people were lining on the queue. Perhaps by the time their turn came, they would enjoy their supper rather than dinner. Lolx!
It reminded me when I had to queue the Tian Tian chicken rice for Sithar and Palden, also, a super long queue in River Safari, where people queued to see one Panda inside. OMG!
All those incidents reminded me one of the stories from "Other Cities, Other Lives" written by Chew Kok Chang. Btw I'd just finished reading it this afternoon and I enjoyed his stories there very much.
I took photo on one of the story, "Dragon City", which he referred it to Singapore. (Actually, I heard that Singapore was known as "Lion city", or perhaps a "Fine city", but I never heard about "Dragon city". However, after reading the story, I came to understand why.)

I hope you also understand now why Mr Chew said that Singapore is a dragon city. Have a great weekend everyone! :)
