27 Feb 2011 - Pepper Lunch and SourMilk frozen yoghurt

She never liked to eat yoghurt. However, when had this "deal" for frozen yoghurt at SourMilk, Far East Plaza, she kept nagging at him to buy. How weird.

Here's what they had, original and chocolate topped with strawberries slices, blueberry mochi, KitKat, water melon, MnM's and probably more. The original flavour was sweet and sour, his type of taste (think mangoes, sour plums). Her choice of chocolate was bitter and sour, quite a weird combination to him at least, so he let her finish it all. The blueberry mochi was the most pleasing of the toppings, sweet and chewy.

Probably an hour before that, she wanted to expend the $5 Pepper Lunch voucher in their possession. The regular Big Rib-eye for her, while he had Seafood Aglio Olio.

Instead of the salad, he opted for some ice cream, black sesame and caramel flavours. She finished hers in double quick time and pretended to ask him about the flavour he was having. Yeah, so he let her tax some from his cup. Hahahaha

26 Feb 2011 - Birthday on a weekend

His birthday fell on a weekend in 2011. On Friday, he left the office at around 11pm, and reached home to find her waiting for him with a cake. "I've got my favourite cake to celebrate your birthday!", she beamed. How sweet huh. It was this child-like attitude that actually made him smile, still smiling while typing this.

Cake from Polar, with thick layers of chocolate mousse, and really rich chocolate on the top. This year's a more photogenic cake, but not as heart-warming as the one she made for him last year.

She also made some dishes for dinner, something they haven't done in a long while.

Blanched lettuce, topped with vinegar based sauce. Garlic stir-fried until fragrant before adding vinegar, oyster and soy sauce to heat. The piquant flavour opened wide the doors to his stomach.

Steamed minced pork with century egg - this was mixed with soy sauce, egg white and century egg. He would have preferred it with more egg to minced meat, but that would have become steamed egg pudding, eh?

Lean pork porridge sprinkled very generously with freshly ground black pepper. He hasn't gotten sick of the grinder, always enjoys doing the twisting work.

Finally, kombu soup with pork ribs, wolfberries and dates. Unfortunately, chicken stock cubes had been used, that's why they had oily soup this time round.
