Wang Chiew Seafood Restaurant, SS2: Eating with the Ones You Work With

Wang Chiew Seafood Restaurant_1.jpg

It has been said before that the most important thing that keeps you motivated and staying in your current job, is the people you work with. Okay, maybe it’s a close second right after monetary compensations. But think about it, no matter how much money you earn, you’ll loose interest in the job very quickly if you hate your colleagues and the environment you work in.

Thankfully for me, the office is filled with a bunch of people who are just as crazy, if not crazier, as I am. And naturally the younger ones in the office band closer together, calling ourselves “the 80’s“. In a bid to outdo the 70’s or the 60’s colleagues in the happening department, the younglings try (when time permits, that is) to organise an outing away from the office and that’s not work related at least once a month. And most of the time, this revolves around food. Yours truly will of course be the default person they look to for ideas on where to go. Such pressure I tell you!

Most recently, during the Chinese Lunar New Year, we headed over to Wang Chiew in SS2 for our “start work” lunch. This quaint seafood restaurant that’s hidden away from the main business area was a perfect spot for us. Yee Sang was of course on the menu and we tossed to many hopeful things, one being a successful launch of a current roadshow – which I must say did came true! Who said wishing on a tossed salad was utter rubbish? Now, to wait for that giant bonus, big house, humongous raise and promotion that I wished for.

I’ve always liked the food here ever since I was introduced to it by McCutie. It’s not the best, but it’s one of the better places to eat around the area. A special dish that’ll never fail to impress is the Indonesian Tofu Curry with Seafood that comes in a bed of steamed egg right at the bottom of the dish. Order and it and see everyone flooding their rice with the mildy spicy golden gravy. The Yam Basket was commendable, so were the Marmite Ribs and 3-Cups Chicken. Also a favourite amongst the restaurant’s regular customers is the Oatmeal Prawns, which never fails to impressed. However, we didn’t order that during our lunch. Instead, we rounded up the meal with an order of Stir-fried Vegetables and also Seremban Omelette. Mental note to order the prawns for them the next time we come over since it isn’t too far from our office and service is always good and fast anyway. Perfect for a quick escape from the stress of the office.

    Yikes. Sean's and Boo's colleagues are more like Devil's (though he is friends with both his bosses, so that's what counts, I guess).

    I love my colleagues though – such fuN! :D

    Your colleagues are your second family, considering the amount of time we spend in the office nowadays:) Having a fun bunch to work with is always a plus and I've always had the joy of working with a bunch of peeps I like.
