The farewell speech
We then headed off to the Woolwich Pier Hotel for a boozy afternoon.
A few of the guys - Left: Jen, Lucy, Adele, JP Right:Mayura, Sarah
Left: Classic Salad Nisçoise with Atlantic Salmon $16.00 - The fish was fresh and was reasonable for the price. Right: Steak Sandwich with fries (Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Onion Relish & Beetroot) $14.00 - this wasn't a hit with us as the steak tasted like boiled meat
Left: Tempura Battered Fish Of The Day with Fries & Tartare $19.00.
Right: Garlic Prawns with chilli on fettuccini with spinach and coriander $20.00 - I found this dish to be a bit too oily, the pasta was a bit plain on its own and the prawns a tad too salty, I was left feeling a little disappointed.
Left: Scallops on Half Shell with Tarragon Butter - 1 Dozen $25.00 & Bowl of Fresh Prawns with Garlic Aioli (serves two $28.00) - seafood was very fresh and scallops had just enough flavour, would recommend.
Right: Vegetable Stir Fry with Fresh Singapore Noodles $16.00 - ordinary for the price.
Our Company gave us a $500 bar tab to drink the afternoon away. And drink we did! I'm really not sure when I became such an alco but in 2 maybe 3 hours I managed to consume:
1 x vodka lemon lime
2 x caprioska cocktails
1 x lychee with cranberry Cocktail
1 x shot of Sambucca
The service was exceptional! and the barman was really sweet making his own little cocktail creations especially for us. The weather and waterfront view made it a really easygoing and fun afternoon, just what we all needed. At around 4:30pm we all hopped on the ferry to the city and finished the night with more drinks @ Opera Bar.
Before Reena left she handed me a present with these parting words of advice for me:
"Take Pride in how far you have come,
and have Faith in how far you can Go!"
