Oh Noes

File this in the department of WTF.

Last night I messaged my friends to see if they wanted to go to Lanai Cafe for breakfast. The previous weekend for dinner my friends took us to the restaurant which situated on Beach 66 in Semiyak. Our friends were friends of Renee the owner, and we got extra attention from her. When the waitress messed up our order and for some unknown reason 4 out of 6 of us didn't get our main course, she helped fixed the problem and gave us a pitcher of her sangria. The food was really awesome even though the menu was totally random. Fish was extra fresh, sangria was strong yet tasty, and the desserts were to die for. Renee was so friendly and quite the saleswoman--she made everything sound so much more delicious and tempting. We saw the breakfast menu and it looked mighty tempting (plenty of food for a very good price, under 30,000 Rp). We also thought that since the owner is American (originally from South Carolina), she would know what's the proper American breakfast.

We all decided to meet up for breakfast tomorrow at Lanai, but this morning I got a message from my friend--Lanai burned down last night!!!! Total shocker to everyone. Apparently, at one in the morning there was short circuit or some sort of electrical problem at Zansibar, a bar next door, which triggered the fire. The fire had no effect on Zansibar, but it completely burned down Lanai. The only thing that survived was the kitchen. We feel terrible for Renee and the people who work there. It makes me even more sad when I remembered that Renee and her friend wanted to save enough money to start a new business, and now they have to rebuild the restaurant. I hope they recover quickly.
