I randomly downloaded Tinder and started swiping one day because I had already been single for a while and thought that it was finally time to mingle around and get to know someone new.
I hit it off quite well with one of the girls while talking on the app and we both decided to meet.
As we both ended work quite late, we decided to go for drinks at the Clarke Quay area followed by supper after that if we felt hungry.
Labels Ba Chor Mee as ‘Cheap & Dirty’
After a few hours of chit chatting over drinks, both of us felt hungry and I suggested that we go to a nearby coffeeshop to have ‘Ba Chor Mee’ (Minced Pork Noodles) as there is a stall nearby that serves quite good standard Ba Chor Mee.
Immediately, I could see her eyes roll in disgust and she kept quiet for a while before telling me that she only goes to restaurants for food and the best available option now for food that she can accept is Hai Di Lao steamboat.
I asked her what is wrong with Ba Chor Mee and she told me that it is a ‘cheap and dirty’ food meant only for poor people to eat.
She also questioned what kind of guy am I that I would consider Ba Chor Mee as one of my staple food and that her impression of me went straight down the drain and she would never date a guy like me.
She told me to choose and said that if I want to date her, I have to match her ‘atas’ standard and make lifestyle choices like hers.
Of course, I defended my Ba Chor Mee and I told her to get lost.
