72 hours had passed since Sunday left me high and dry. I worked extra hard to forget the longing and hoped that 24 would turn 12. That Monday and Tuesday would cheer and eat and dress like Sunday. Who was I kidding? Sundays are meaningless if not for the torturous Mondays, Tuesdays……That’s life.
Meeting that Wednesday evening was pleasant. I couldn’t wait to tell the day how much I missed Sunday and how bad Monday and Tuesday had been to me.
A disappointing dinner.
Instead of offering a piece of consolation, it led me to a building with a façade cramped with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Ferragamo. As if hypnotized, those words appeared oblivious, just like the hordes of pedestrians crossing the busy Orchard Road. I believe I knocked a few shoulders. Yet, the road still felt empty. I only had Monday, Tuesday and that dinner to blame.
The cubes of sugar at PS Cafe reminded me again of Sunday. Sitting across the ProjectShop(PS) boutique, I composed myself to read the menu written on the pillar of the extended open area of the cafe. I chose desserts, to see how Sunday would feel like on a Wednesday. And to forget the disappointing dinner, definitely.
There came the G3 Cheesecake (S$9.90). The three Gs represent the main flavouring ingredients; green apple, ginger and green lime. Firm and moist, the cake’s texture was lovely. Taste-wise, it was aptly sweet but lacked the level of tanginess I expected, in the presence of green apple and lime. An additional scoop of vanilla ice cream (S$2.00) provided a good contrast to the warm cake. Like how Saturdays complement Sundays.
Observing my surrounding, not all Wednesdays were sad. Most were happily chatting away, with scrumptious food in hand and/or mouth.
I suppose the Homemade Steamed Lemon Pudding (S$12.90) was intended to sedate the Wednesdays. To transport them to Sunday. To assure that Thursdays will be less painful. Exuding a strong butter/lemon scent; the soft, sweet and moist pudding was by all means, alluring. The pouring of the caramel and the scoop of vanilla ice cream enhanced the sweetness of the ensemble and provided a smoother, richer texture. A piece of well-deserved heaven, this.
Like the infatuation for Sundays, we often overlook what’s right in front of us. Like Wednesdays or any other non-Sundays. Or even Saturdays, for that matter.
It’s a pity because I would have missed the raved PS Cafe.
And that's 120 hours before the next Sunday.
