Romantic dinner, art jamming, and cheap shopping…

BF finally had a day off last week and i was thoughtful enough to have booked us a table for a romantic dinner at Stables Grill. My friend recommended it and the photos on the website looked well inviting. We had sesame humus with pita bread and my fave parma ham for starters, and they were both delish! The mini toasts next to the parma ham was a tad bit odd and not to mention, kinda too over toasted? haha. BF ordered the Aberdeen Angus Prime Strip Loin for main and it was just oh soooo tender and juicy. It came in a selection of 6 sauces for you to choose from, pretty neat eh!? It had honey mustary, teriyaki, rosemary gravy, and i forgot the rest,lol. I was just busy eating! I went for the plain Fettuccini Bolognese (minced beef in tomatoe sauce) which tasted way better than it looked!

For drinks, i ordered my all time fave Brazilian cocktail, Caipirinha, which did not fail to impress! The sourness of the lime and sweetness of the sugar was just perfect. All in all, we had a great evening and we ended the night with a light stroll at the Victoria harbour over looking the beautiful sky scrapers of Hong Kong.

I also had the opportunity to get creative last weekend and arranged an art activity for my friend’s surprise birthday. We went to  Ka Atelier to paint some ceramics and it was so much fun! I felt like a kid all over again. I had such a hard time thinking of what color to use for my vase and at the end i choose pink, yellow, and sky blue. I won’t post a photo of my final product as it’s much more fun to leave that for your own imaginiation, right? lol. But i think i should definitely arrange these art/painting classes more as it’s a nice and different way to chill with friends over a free flow of  tea, chocolates, and biscuits, as provided by the studio!

Of course, i always manage to squeeze in time for some light shopping and, and it was really cheap too! I just finished watching EAT PRAY LOVE on DVD lately and decided to buy the book because the movie was really that good! But as expected, the book turns out to be way more interesting. There are just so much more details and descriptions in writing. So far the book is inspiring me in life and it’s been a good company for me on my train rides back home. I also bought myself a really nice Tiffany look alike key necklace the other day. I got it in Cotton On and it only cost HK$25!!! Too good of a bargain to miss, i say!!! I know it’s not the real thing but i can’t really afford to buy the real thing at the moment. This fakey will just have to suffice for now;)

Hope you all had a fab and fun week too!!!!
