happyshop The family's out to the National Gallery, thanks to @magyin ♡ here is Picasso's cat and rooster ... all mangled and intriguingly alluring | Finally, a local museum I love. The architecture, layout, the curation and sheer quantity of art work, plus the interactive components. Very attractive, very stylish and very engaging. 1d

Btw, speaking of jamming... we booked a table for 10 today at @revelry_sg just a few doors away for our jamming... it was our 1st time there for jam and when I made a reservation, I was told it was compulsory for each of us to order food. As if that was the end of that... when we arrived, the table was not immediately ready, and then lo & behold the staff came up with a super worried face and spoke at length to me about our calligraphy inks potentially leaking through our papers onto the precious soft wood table and insisted we must somehow magically make "something hard" appear to pad our writing. I did the next best thing and went into the studio to grab plastic pocket folders to use as placemats (even though really, the ink won't seep through the wad of practice papers we have today)... so OK right? No... someone In Charge came up and again talked about how, "don't know if it was your group or not" (er it was our first jam at this venue I told her but she didn't stop there; she didn't care), had ink spilled onto the wood before and it couldn't come off (she even pointed at some black gradient of the wood which I thought was quite natural! I saw later that a firm spillage mark was on the *other side* of the table) ... and she said we were beginners so accidents can happen... and even when I told her, no all these adults are not beginners, she didn't acknowledge her accusation had been wrong but went on to insist that we cannot proceed without more protection... no, even the plastic is not good for her because we can even cut through the plastic. Wow. Now our nibs are knives? There is no end to her lack of desire to understand the situation, much less any gracious good service. I am a business owner too. But I really don't understand how anyone can open a place for business and blame a group of paying customers for potentially dirtying the very precious wood of a table. They definitely lost me as a customer today.
