Just recently, my daughter celebrated her 4th birthday. Nothing fancy, we spent a night out for dinner, just with some close family members. Just to have some fun.
My wife has been eyeing this new Japanese restaurant and this occasion gave us a valid reason to patron this outlet. We received some "good" feedback from friends. So decided unanimously without a second thought.
Upon reaching the restaurant, there were about 6-7 persons in the queue. "The food here must be good!" I said to myself.
On normal days, I’d have turned away as I’m famous for why queue up to pay money while there are other good restaurants around. But that’s a different story, I’ll save it for another day.
Back to the restaurant…
After waiting for a while, a table was made available to us: five adults with three toddlers. Only did I realize that the space was small and I have to squeeze in (for my size, at least) to be seated. But that’s still okay as the benches are big enough for us.
What amazed me was the hot water tap was just located near the wall and it’s within reach so that we could help ourselves while we enjoy a cup of Japanese green tea.
I didn’t say it out maybe it’s a good idea to let my daughter to sit near the aisle, furthest from the tap. Somehow I didn’t get this message out to the gang.
Soon I regretted of not doing this. While my wife was filling up mugs with hot water, she accidentally hit a mug and splashed and the hot water from the mug splashed on my daughter. It’s so sudden for this to happen and my daughter didn’t expect it, the only thing she could do was screaming and crying. It’s possibly due to the pain as well.
