My Food Stories: The Fairy Tale of Mr. Good & Ms. Teatime
By Denise Chua | February 26, 2017
Like Cinderella, Ms. Teatime met her prince charming Mr. Good at the ball, the University Ball. For him, it was love at first sight because there really aren’t that many ladies at the school’s Engineering Faculty Ball. With more men than ladies at the ball, she just kind of glowed when he saw her. So it wasn’t that romantic, it was all probability.
Their first date was at the zoo because that’s the only attraction on the west side of Singapore where they both lived. When they got married, the wedding was also held at the zoo because that’s where they can ride on a horse carriage like in a fairy tale. In case you are wondering, the horse carriage wasn’t made of pumpkin and her heels weren’t made of glass. And this is where the fairy tale ends and reality starts. Mr. Good is not a prince so he has no readily available castle where they can stay in. And so they started to look for a place where they can stay together.
