Can’t wait to go on a holiday!
Can’t wait to go on a holiday!
there is always a rainbow.
guess things doesn’t just end there.
somehow I’m happy.
i’m sad at how things are now.
After being together for almost 3 years, I look back and think about the ups and downs we had. Every up is always accompanied by a down. Every fight is accompanied with a smile.
How much do you fight in a relationship?
How do you know if you are fighting enough to keep the relationship healthy and yet not break down the relationship?
Marriage life is never easy.
No one said it is.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m able to strike a balance between the things I want and the things I have.
It’s hard. Really hard.
I wonder why I’m not really contented with my life. Maybe I’m just too greedy.
I often think about how life would be like if I did not take the path I took. I wonder how would it be like to go back to the past and not know certain people that I know know. I wonder how the future would be like so I know who I should appreciate now.
I hope that I will not make a decisions that tilt the balance I have in life now.
I know I’m 3 weeks late. But I still want to blog about my day spent with Hubby.
The night before Valentine’s Day, hubby secretly booked a restaurant for a surprise celebration with a huge life size bunny soft toy but too bad I had plans to help my BFF’s bf to choose a present. Heh. So I didn’t get to dine with Hubby.
And then he ended up bring the bunny and lie it on bed waiting for me to be surprised. And I was really indeed very surprised.
We decided to name her Twinklebell. Why? Because I like it. Heh. I name almost all my toys.
And then on Valentines’ day itself, Hubby brought me to Da Paolo
This is the appetiser that was served. Stuffed Zucchini Flowers with Tomato, Ricotta
Then I had the Seabass & Sweet Porato Ravioli with Celeriac Cream for the starters.
Hubby had the Beetroot Risotto with Gorgonzola Sauce, Candied Pistachio. I prefer this to my Ravioli. Heh.
Then it comes to our main course. Hubby had the monkfish. It is also knows as the poor man’s lobster. But it was slightly overcooked and taste quite rubbery.
I have no idea why I ordered this. I had always been eager to try out new food and most of the time I like it. But for the first time ever, I did not like what I ordered. I hardly finish it. Maybe just 1/2 or less than 1/2 of it. I feel kinda bad and embarrassing but I just coulnd’t stomach it. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think it’s the chef fault but I just felt I’m not used to this dish.
The waiter who came and cleared our dishes was quite surprised that I didn’t finish it. And he tried asking for feedback but I felt a little too embarrassed to say that I didn’t know how to appreciate this dish. Heh.
But fortunately!!! The manager came over and offer to serve a complimentary cod fish to replace my main course. Up till before the manager came over, I felt that the food was just so-so but the next dish really proved me wrong!
This was the codfish that they served us for the night. It was done perfectly and I don’t really remember tasting such yummy fish before. The skin was quite crispy but it was still juicy when we cut open the fish. Yums!
The manager said that this is their best seller codfish and he hopes that we will always remember this codfish when we are around the area. I will definitely remember it and maybe visit the restaurant again.
Dessert was really yummy! We had the mixed berry Cassata. It’s actually an Italian ice cream containing dried fruits and nuts.
Overall, dining experience is good. I really appreciate the manager who offers a complimentary main course.
Their sister company, Gastronomia, sells really really really yummy Tiramisu that I totally adore! More on that next time.

Thank you dear for making the day special.
