Our lovely afternoon

Yesterday, we really had a lovely afternoon! And it is all thanks to Jesus Christ and my beloved husband for making it so wonderful!
Five p.m., as we agreed, we left office, feeling a bit disappointed that it started to rain. We got home and changed clothes, fetched our camera and mini tripod and off we walked to the restaurant. We were heading to Ego restaurant, which happens to be only 5 minutes walk from where we live. Every time we went pass there, somehow it was always full of people and has delicious smell coming out from the kitchen! And so we decided to try...
  • Lan had marinated moroccan chicken salad with a chickpea, apricot and raisin salsa served with a yoghurt, honey and mint dressing for starter and ‘pappardelle portofino’ chargrilled chicken, manzanilla green olives, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes in a cream, red wine and tomato sauce for his main course.

  • And I had grilled goats cheese served on toasted brioche with caramelised red onions and a fig and blueberry jam as starter and for main course, I chose chargrilled rump steak served with a brandy and grain mustard sauce

We were very satisfied and impressed with the food there! Great choice it was! :) We were double happy, because the rain had stopped and the sun was out! Thank you, Jesus!
After filling our stomach, we started our little exercise: a walk to city centre to buy some dessert to eat at home. So we had a relaxing walk to town and bought a lemon cheesecake and went home to enjoy it together with Cava that we bought several days ago.
With extremely happy feeling, Lan challenged me twice to do 'bottom up' (that is to drink all the Cava in my glass at once). Arghhh... we should not have done that! Because, not long after that, we were feeling tipsy and seeing stars hahahaha... Yep yep... we were feeling DRUNK! Lan was all red on his face (and even up to his shoulders!). So we had no choice but to lay down!
After some time, we started exchanging gift. I gave him some-kind-of scrapbook that I made, it took me quite awhile, because I had to do it in secret and after work and I even almost cut my hands because of that. However, I am extremelly happy that he likes it :)
What Lan gave me was really impressive! He gave me a mixed tape, i.e., something that he recorded by himself. There is this song, titled 'Yue Liang Tai Piao Wo De Xin', that I like and can sing some parts, and guess what?! He played that song with his harmonica!!!! Oh my Jesus, I was sooooo happy! And at the end of the songs, he said things that are actually my reactions, somehow he just knew how I would react to his sweet and special present!

Overall, it was a wonderful evening we had! After the gift exchange, we went to sleep, we could not handle seeing stars hahahahaha.... Lan said, "Next time, get away from alcohol!" Hehehe.. too late for this time, dear ;)
