A year ago, we were announced to be Husband and Wife. I can’t believe it has been a year already. Although Star got transferred to the US on September 2010 and then many trips separated us from each other, we’re thankful of being able to spend more time together. Looking back, we don’t notice much difference between preand post marriage. We are so comfortable with each other that we can be just together and do nothing. I remember one friend told me once that a good couple is the one that you can just sit together in front of the TV and not talking; to go to a restaurant and only focus on the food. What that means? It means that you don’t need to think about what to say to the other person; words and thoughts just flow out; you can be just yourself. I think that’s a great description of marriage (i.e. perfect couple) for me (I know that many may disagree). Passions and lust are exciting, but they’re not lasting. A marriage is a long time commitment, maybe 50 years? then how can we make sure that the initial chemistry last for that long? well… clearly we cannot. So how to pick the person to marry to? The one that you’re comfortable with, the one that let you be yourself 100%! He/she won’t be perfect, perhaps with many flaws and things that you don’t like… but it is alright, no one is and what’s important is to look the big picture.
ok… too much rambling… heheh… I was just thinking and writing
First I was in charge of booking the place, but those that I wanted to go were all booked :(. So I handled the command to Star. Star picked a french bistro called La Chaumiere in Georgetown.
When we were guided to our table I saw this
first I thought… wooo… what a romantic restaurant. but 5 sec after, I saw this card and realized that Star set it up!
we start with a basket of french bread with butter
I’m embarrassed. I finished the whole thing!
For starter: we shared Fois gras with toast of brioche bread
my first time with fois gras
and a lobster bisque
for entree: I choice parsley crusted chilean sea bass
with wild mushrooms
Star had marinated duck
with wild rice
and the star of the dinner was this gigantic Chocolate Souffle!!!
it comes with a cream sauce
and we are supposed to make a hole to the souffle and pour the sauce
I had a first bite and I was in heaven!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!
15 min later….
we I devoured the thing!
I was in a seriously sugar coma :shock:. Can’t remember when was the last time I ate that much sweet, but it worths it 200%!!!
Q1: What’s your thoughts about the ideal couple?
Q2: When was the last dessert that hit the spot for you?
