Turning Twenty Seven
Posted on: 4th of June 2010 | Under: Life & Love

You know you’re getting old when you start saying that you’re a certain age, months before you even turn that age.

Yes, for some reason, I’ve been absentmindedly saying that I’m already twenty seven years old, even if I just turned that age last Tuesday.  And no, I don’t think I’m in denial about being old. For some reason, age seem to have stopped being important after twenty five. =P

My Birthday celebration started a day early this year. The husband likes to spoil me rotten! :) Upon my request, we went out for a quick Japanese dinner, followed by a movie (SATC 2). I have been craving for sushi for weeks, so it was about time I finally satisfied both my tummy and palate.

I love my sushi!

At Nihon Mura, The Cathay, about to devour my sushi. I don’t remember how many plates I had, but it was certainly more than what I normally eat! =P

Salmon sashimi goodness!

And of course, what’s a trip to a Japanese restaurant without having sashimi. I love my sashimi! <3

We had several plates of sushi, some yakitori, tokayaki balls and the salmon sashimi which we happily downed with hot green tea. And is if we weren’t full enough, we even munched on ice cream and chocolates during the movie too. =P

On the night of my Birthday, we headed to Clarke Quay and had Persian for dinner.

Kitchen Creations
Posted on: 30th of March 2010 | Under: Palate Pleaser

We have just under eleven months ’til our church wedding back in Manila, but instead of working out and watching my diet, I’ve been indulging the hubby and I to some of my kitchen creations. Not having a full time job and basically just keeping myself busy with wedding preparations, I have plenty of extra time to be a real housewife. I enjoy it a lot, because a big part of being a stay-at-home wife is cooking meals, and we all know how much I love anything to do with food! XP

Here are some meals I cooked for hubby and I last week:

Beef Bourguignon. Cooking this took several hours, but it turned out really delish! I’m thinking of cooking it again when my friends come over for dinner next week. :)

Beefy Tomato Linguine, because I was feeling Italian that night. =D

Shrimp and Tuna Aglio Olio for dinner last Friday.

For dinner last night, I made the hubby’s favorite meal: steak with potato salad and broccoli.

I reckon my timing for posting this is a little off, considering that it’s Holy Week and all I’ve been yakking about is food! =P So, I think I’m going to stay away from food indulgences… until Easter Sunday. XD

Our Families in Singapore
Posted on: 15th of March 2010 | Under: Life & Love

Having our Registration of Marriage in Singapore was the perfect excuse for our families to fly in and spend time with us. Several days of bouncing from one place to another was physically tiring, but we enjoyed every minute of it. It was nice taking everyone around for some food tripping and a whole lot shopping.

Free afternoon cocktails at the hotel with the family. Minus my brother, because he was out shopping! =P

KL Getaway
Posted on: 1st of March 2010 | Under: Travel Junkie

Before JR and I had our ROM, we headed off to Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese New Year / Valentine’s weekend. We wanted some time to relax and unwind before officially and legally getting married, so we boarded the five hour bus ride and enjoyed three days of quality time together.
