Kippetje: A chicken story in Dobe
We were greeted by purple chairs and a homey feeling, like walking in a local restaurant in your hometown (in my case as a Filipina, a turo-turo in the neighborhood). In contrast to the weather, the interior of Hotel Residenz is very sunny, colorful paintings adorned the wall and the furniture and the table wares were likewise very colorful.
There was nothing on the menu that interested me. It was eleven in the morning and between a heavy German breakfast and lunch time, my stomach was really not in the mood for anything. So I ordered a warm cup of milk to calm my freezing body while hubby fancied a cup of cappuccino and apple strudel.
While waiting for our order, my eyes were drawn to the cute table decorations, particularly to this little pink hen sitting on the table. With its chipped beak and slanted eyes lovingly gazing at me, I began to toy around with the chicken.
“Have you gone crazy?” hubby lovingly asked while keeping his laughter demure. There were only two tables (including ours) occupied in the restaurant but we tried to be quiet with fooling around. The chicken was so cute that I can’t help but chat it up. As you can see, I spent a good amount of megabytes capturing our “crazy moments” together, from the moment that she first stared at me.
