I had given up all hope already. I had been waiting and waiting for the past six month that I don’t even care to ask anymore.
Today I went to Shanghai House to make reservation for a dinner I am organizing. As I was walking along No 3 Road, I thought I saw something different across the street. The windows right under the red signboard were … brighter.
I took a closer look. I saw people milling around. There was activity.
How long has it been? Well, it was way back in August 2010 that I reported the impending opening of a new exciting shop. I am sure a lot of people were equally excited over this too.
But we waited and we waited and we waited. We even went to the mothership and asked them for a date of opening. Not just once. Several times. All we ever got as an answer ranges from “oh it will be soon” to “two more months”.
After six months, we stopped asking. Maybe the mothership ran out of money or something like that.
But this afternoon, the doors were thrown opened. There were shipment of equipments going into shop lot with the papered up windows.
I am a busy body. Suanne always says that I am a busy body. So, I crossed the street to find out what is going on.
I saw some ovens already in place but the inside were still largely empty.
Two middle aged women were standing outside. They wore expensive clothing and all dolled up. I assumed that they own this place or something. So I walked over and told them that I had been waiting for six months already. I asked if they are finally opening. They were happy to hear what I said. They laughed.
Yeah, Kam Do is going to open in March. It is widely know that this will only be a bakery … unlike the mothership which is both a restaurant and a bakery.
When I remarked that it is a huge space for a bakery, they told me it will be both a bakery and a workshop. Workshop? I wanted to ask more but I can see they were beginning to feel uncomfortable with all my questions. LOL!
So there you go … it will just be a few more short weeks and you can grab a lo-poh-bang (wife biscuits) before you hop on the Skytrain on the way to work.
