Lunch with Joy

Aloha Everyone,

It’s been a little less than 8 months since we saw our friend Joy. But there’s been significant changes in her family that’s affected her personally. 

As soon as we settled in the restaurant, J.J. and I found ourselves listening and hearing silent words that were coming out of her mouth. 

Jasmine is located inside New World Hotel across the street from Ayala Greenbelt 3.  It is actually within walking distance from our hotel.

New World Hotel is Singaporean ownership and so is Jasmine, its signature restaurant. Every week, they run promotions and today was “all you can eat dim sum” served in small portions. Selection was wide but one catch is you cannot take home any left overs.  In other words, order only what you can eat, no wasted food is allowed. That concept sounds very Singaporean

Cost for the three of us was ₽4,050 with (Joy’s 32% senior discount) inclusive of taxes and services. J.J. charged it to our Mastercard as Philippine peso, the equivalent of US$74.

Aloha -- Cathi
