Traveling with our foodie friend meant only one thing, we were very well-fed during our stay in Venice. While having our pre-dinner drinks, the men chanced upon this bistro and decided to book it the very next day for lunch.
After missing out the private museum tour because it was conducted primarily in French with no translation, we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon with a long leisure lunch before dressing up for the gala event.
For starters, I had the scallops served over mashed brocoli with cream of pumpkin and black truffle. As strange as it may sound, it the flavours surprisingly all blended in harmony. For the main, I chose a eel with seaweed pasta. Was really looking forward to the dish but it kinda disappointed. The freshwater eel was rather bland and the seaweed ended up looking like a mess on the plate of pasta. The Man’s duck fillet was a far better choice.
But having said that it still made for a very lovely meal. I guess the wine and company mattered more.

So, the man took a trip on his own to Angkor Wat recently. I couldn’t join him as I’m still serving notice but in any case, it wasn’t on the top of my list of countries to go. Gimme Hong kong or Bangkok anytime for shopping!
‘Travel reviews’ ranked number 2 in the list of things that you may like to read (according to the online poll that I’ve done recently). So, I bugged the man to do a little review of his vacation to Angkok Wat so that I can share this with you.
Ta-dah, here’s my first guest-post by B! Click, click to read the entry.

Am back from Hakuba | Tokyo with so many wonderful memories that I’m kinda at a loss as to where to start. So, am starting just some simple pics from our snowboarding trip:
Had such a blast and with new equipment (my PINK snowboard) to rock the slopes, I am looking forward to our next winter snowboarding | ski holiday with the gang!
Updates are kept like Facebook status as Internet access is wonky. Never been more grateful for FREE WIFI.
