With Japanese and Chinese food and Great Company ♥

15 Aug
 
 
it’s Friday and TGIF indeed (:
but this particular Friday is different.
Baby and I didn’t cook anything.
not even dessert!
Cheok and Jacky took over the cooking and let me just say.
it was an awesome night with super yummy food!
so compliments to the Chefs of the night!
was super awesome la. hehe

Menu for the night :

Garlic and chicken fried rice
Tuna tataki
Cabbage and meat rolls

SO MUCH FOOD. haha
we were ALL bloated by the end of the night.

so the day started with buying the tuna from the market.
I followed Cheok to the market cause he wasn’t sure how to choose the tuna
so after getting back from uni I accompanied him to the market to help him out!
and it was the best piece of tuna we’ve had in the longest time!
especially since the tuna we normally have is from a tin. haha
but yes. this was awesome! (:
Sashimi grade aye. haha

the tuna cutlets being coated with cracked pepper
and all ready for the super hot pan to seal it off! (:

but before sealing it off.
Cheok had to fry the garlic (HEAPS OF IT) and chicken and the rice! (:
my dearest brother called to see how he was doing. haha.
so funny. ALL THE LOVE in the house! hehe

more photos of the night !

wish you could stay longer

2 Aug

was Shivani’s 21st yesterday
and we were invited to her party at One Fitzroy Street Bar (:
and it was a pretty awesome party.
Cheok came along as well to join in the fun haha
though we were probably older than all of them
plus they were all Med students. haha
so we ended up having fun amongst ourselves and talking about everything and anything.
and her friends were the sweetest people.
speeches and slide shows
and singing. haha. and cause the party was themed Hat and Gloves.
some really embraced it.
One guy was Charlie Chaplin and one was Michael Jackson
and many more other characters.
just that these two really stood out. haha (:

was really glad Aunty Sue was there too!
so we kept her company for a while before she had to go entertain other guests. hehe
and let me just say.
she had the most awesome cake everrrr.

Hat and Gloves !

all smiles Saturday

2 Aug
guess who is down-under? (:
YIANG! hehe.
so happy when she told me she would be in town for the weekend and a few more days after.
so we had a chance to hang out after the longest time!
which was super awesome.
Uncle Tay bought us lunch at Lucky Chan at Crown.
DIM SUM. who wouldn’t be happy with that? hehe
it was super yums.
and it was so nice of him to buy us lunch.
and was great catching up over good food!

after that. I brought Yiang to Vic Market cause she needed her daily bite of apples! hehe
and I wanted her to feel the atmosphere. haha
boy was it packed cause it was 30mins to closing! (:
imgaine the amount of screams and shouts happening at that time. haha

after that. we headed to the newly open Lindt Chocolate Cafe on Collins Street!
was super excited cause I’ve read that they had one in Sydney.
and only came about knowing they opened one here a couple of days back!
so it was a brand new experience for both of us! haha.

the cafe was in this old building with super awesome and pretty interior! (:
we were mesmerized by how the interior looks.
and they had so many different kinds of chocolate.
we were spoilt for choice!

more photos!

warmth in different ways.

Winter is officially here.
and I for one, is super scared of the cold.
but I’m lucky.
in more ways than one.

before Winter even set in.
My dearest Queenie gave me something
which would keep me warm to the max! (:
and I love it!
and the soft touch of it. is just awesome. hehe

thank u so much! hehe
i havent thanked you for it yet. hehe
cos I just started using it!
keeps my hands and feet warm! hehe

and when I speak to my parents.
when I told them it’s getting really cold.
they would ask me to get a heater and electrical blanket.
but their love from a distance. is kinda keeping me warm as well. (:
deep inside. hehe

and of course.
my dearest baby. (:
who is cooking, washing and doing everything know that I still have 2 papers to go.
and he is done.
without any complaints.
and i wake up to a hearty breakfast.

scrambled eggs with porcini mushrooms. hehe
and my favourite crossiant.
and because there was only one left.
he gave it to me.
and had cereal instead.
cos he knew I really love the crossiant. hehe

Just needed the break! hehe

was really nice of Peggy and Paul to invite us to the Belgian Beer Cafe at the Eureka towers
with their friends from Singapore
we met at the Food and Wine Show
but went home for dinner and did a bit of work
before meeting them again for after dinner drinks (:
was great.
drank, talked, gossiped and laughed.
been a while since I laughed SO MUCH
till my cheeks felt a bit cramped. haha
but was good!

The Belgian Beer Cafe are of course, as suggested haha, known for their beers!

they had this super cute tasting rack
and you have 100ml of their beers on tap.
and u get the best of ALL the worlds. haha

the Stella Artois
Hoegaarden White
Leffe Blonde (my favourite)
Leffe Brune
Belle-Vue Kriek

Peggy said the last one tasted like blood!
haha but suppose to be sour cherries hehe
i quite liked it though. cause it didn’t really taste like beer.
just some sparkly cherry drink. hehe

then Paul ordered a beer with the cutest looking drinking cup. haha
and it was a very special glass that he had to pay a deposit for it.
weird! but yes.

it’s called a Kwak! haha.
wanted to fit the whole glass in the photo. 
and caught Paul’s face. oops. haha

Baby and I went there last year during our anniversary
