Singapore! Day 6: Malaysia and Muddy Murphy’s
On Sunday morning, we headed off toward Malaysia at ~6AM on Sunday to meet up with a few of Steve’s coworkers for another round of golf. Our threesome was rounded out by Derek, a Scottish gent. Andy and Mike are British and Welsh, respectively. Needless to say, they were lovely to listen to (accents!), and really fun guys to hang around with!
I played terribly, and didn’t really enjoy the round, but I ended up scoring better than the previous round – so apparently some of my skills have hung on!
After golf, we met up with Andy and Mike for a traditional Sunday Brunch at Muddy Murphy’s back in Singapore, which is near Orchard Towers (aka: Four Floors of Whores). Side note: I’ve become quite educated as to the culture of that area, and I’ve seen plenty of the “working girls” as they begin their shifts and head home with the men who pay them. Kind of sad, but apparently, it’s a business around here.
At Muddy’s, of course, we started off with pints of Guinness and Kilkenny’s.
Then, we ordered brunch. We all chose the same meals: Crab Bisque and Roast Striploin (with Yorkshire Pudding!). Both were excellent! Great flavor, and the meat was tender and cooked perfectly. The vegetables were perfectly prepared as well. And, although Yorkshire pudding was described to me simply as “flour, water and a bit of fat”, I enjoyed the texture, and the taste, especially when mixed with the gravy and horseradish sauce.
I didn’t know any better, so I ordered dessert. Not wanting to leave me to eat dessert alone, Steve ordered one too. I had the Tiramisu cake, which was actually just chocolate mousse cake – not bad, but didn’t live up to the anticipation! Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts, and this missed the key flavors of Tiramisu.
After a few more pints (drinking the Clemson loss away!), lots of laughs, and a little bit of shopping (yes, Steve knew to put a couple of beers in me before taking me back to the golf shopping center!), we headed home for the evening. That food filled me up for the day and evening – it was like having another Thanksgiving meal!
Those Englishmen were quite lovely company and made for a fun Sunday out in Singapore. I think they enjoyed this Ahmahreecan (American, pronounced slightly differently 😉 ) as well. I’m glad we spent some QT with them.
Tomorrow…I’m not sure what’s on the books! Indonesia is coming up soon, and I’m really looking forward to that! I’m also looking forward to getting back to the states to see my babies! I miss those goofy pups!
