where did half of the year go?! :(
12th; celebrated the boy's birthday!
in my new favourite skirt no less.
been missing the Florentine steak we had twice in Italy - and his client recommended we make a date at Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse 'cos it apparently serves the best Florentine steak in town.
it was so hard to take a photo without the T-bone looking gory and bloody but heck, it was really one of the best steaks i've ever had. beats morton's or lawry's hands down any day.
flatbread/bruschetta for starters, and our die-die-must-order side of creamed spinach. YUMS.
headed for a movie thereafter with our stuffed bellies and went for a light dinner at poulet.
and when i say "light" i actually mean the boy has 1 main instead of 2 and we have 2 appetisers instead of 4.
food is really pretty decent at this joint!
the super memorable escargots that we spat out the moment it went into our mouths because..
it was too freaking HOT. hahahaha. we both went home with burnt tongues that night.
the boy looking slightly retarded, a face he often gives when forced to smile for photos.
in any case, here's to a blessed year ahead love. x
17th; met up with two of my closest mates from uni.
we ate, we talked, ate some more, talked some more, and found ourselves wound up at a bar past midnight, baring our souls, making sense of things, and trying to get our hearts un-wrung.
dates like these i'll never forget.
beef pho at nam nam and recalling our grad trip days in vietnam (:
18th; celebrated kel's birthday!
successfully pulled off a surprise with the help of my scheming partners in crime.
you wouldnt believe the trauma i had to go through late in the night, spending hours looking at donghae's pictures -.-
since she didn't post this, and im itching to show off, here is the couple photo i did up for her.
AWESOME OR WHAT!!!!
anyone else wants to commission me to do a photo? i'll take $10 a pop. hahaha.
20th; brought the folks out to brunch!
artichoke's mezze platter is the bomb - glad my dad enjoyed it!
shall make it a point to bring them out more often to new establishments (:
23rd; finally got a taste of After You's famous Honey Shibuya Toast.
we couldn't finish it but it was SO GOOD.
(berrr where were you when we needed you!?)
and in between all that feasting i've been reading,
(almost cried at the last few chapters. i swear i love depressing prose.)
trying my best to wear dresses on non-occasions,
finally getting my hands on this clear clutch i've been lemming for,
cooking my own lunches and eating clean on the weekdays.
contrary to popular belief the photo above shows oats soaked in yoghurt and not mashed potatoes -.-
chicken + avocado + honey mustard on bread = WINNING COMBI.
i can haz this for every meal!
and because my mom went on a cha soba rampage in the organic department that day, here are my eats of late:
and yes im sure by now you know which is my favourite plate of the moment. HAHA.
ending this post with my act-cute-aza-aza-fighting-im-going-to-conquer-gym face 'cos im gonna be there in three hours again. this, after last night's hatha where i almost died holding my downward dog against the wall.
THE WEEKEND'S NIGH PEOPLE. HANG IN THERE!
p/s: anyone has a West Coast USA road trip itinerary to share? preferably one along the Pacific Coast Highway? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org won't you? thanks in advance! ;)
