Last Tuesday in Taipei: Chocoholic

22 12 2008

Last week I went out for lunch with Amanda and Rob, creamy-hot-chocolatewe had lunch at Sababas again. MMM I love those Gi Pi pita’s 😀 It was a Tuesday so we all had loads of free time, after lunch we went too look at stuff to buy people for Christmas. No real success there, but while walking down the street I remembered that another time I had been wandering around the area I had found a place called Chocoholic. It looked mucho fun especially as everthing there is chocolate or chocolate based.

I mentioned it, and everyone was like..ooh sounds good. Rob just says, ‘hey let’s go now’ Followed by one of those moments where everyone look at each other and tries to think of reasons that we shouldn’t go. Since it’s a hot chocolate place and Read the rest of this entry »

Lunch at Sababas

10 12 2008

First I would like to say it sucks my friend Amanda is going home, I mean it all great that she is going home and will get to be with her family for Christmas… but what about me and ladies who lunch? lol I’m just kidding.

In the past couple of month we have been going for lunches and it’s been super fun.. plus then we get to be ladies who lunch! yay!

We usually pop around to places that are kinda central in the city, so she can walk from work. We’ve hit up The Diner, The California Grill, Mykanos, and a few others. Today we went to Sababas. For those who don’t know, Read the rest of this entry »

The restaurant, money and life

22 10 2008

It’s funny I saved this title meaning to write a post on Sept 14th… and man have things gone up down and sideways since then!

I swear I have mentioned the Restaurant before, but given my sister and the “whoa whoa hold on what restaurant” I am now wondering if I did. There was all kinds of research and negotiations going on. And at the beginning of September Tracey and I were so convinced we were going to go ahead an open it that we paid our deposit. Unfortunately, a week or so after that(and for the next month or so), there were some money issues, our third investor disappeared, my personal life went all over the place and then so did Tracey’s.

Every time we adjusted to the new issues (investor disappearing, new possible investors etc), something else happened. We both still are very interested in the prospects of the business, but basically for now it’s off. Why is a long story and has mostly to do with money, a lot of the investment money was/is in the stock market which has plunged so if they money is taken out then it’s just lost. Just doesn’t make any sense right now.

I suspect I had more to say but it’s not coming to me now, I wrote this over the weekend but I had to set it to publish after I spoke with Greg. We have an appointment to meet with him on Tuesday and it’s not right to be broadcasting things like this until we have at least spoken with him.
