Valentine's Day Dinner - Lots of Heart Shaped Food!
Here are some pictures from our Valentine's day dinner. This year, a week before Valentine's day, I jokingly (no, seriously) told SC that everybody has booked their table for Valentine's day dinner, and I would be really sad if he didn't have anything planned. I was joking. No, I was serious. Heheheh.
That's right. I don't wait for surprises, I just blatantly ask him.
I was thinking of something like...a Hong Kong style steak dinner. Below HK$200 per pax max, but SC decided to treat me for my favorite kind of meal. Quantity > Quality. Buffet dinner! Yeah! So sweet of him! I love love love it! He also did something so dorky-sweet, just check out below.
Here are some pictures from the dinner.
WARNING! Lots of heart shaped and pink food pictures coming.
Heart shaped red balloons everywhere. Awesome!
Something pink and fizzy. I love.
Heart shaped "Caprese". This didn't taste good but it surely looked dang cute!
LOVE is...peeling crab shells for me, because I don't wanna ruin my sparkly red nails :)
...and he proceeded to make me...
....a heart using the crab shell!
SWEETEST THING EVER!
Heart shaped smoked salmon appetizer and caesar salad. I LOVE that parmesan covered pastry stick!! I wanted to get the whole container!
Obligatory foie gras...this was meh.
Best lamb I've ever had in a buffet. Meat still tender and juicy with crisp crust. YUM!
Pretty looking Japanese seafood stew, but tasted too sweet. The only thing I love was the heart shaped tofu. For photographic purposes only ;)
Some heart shaped cheeses.
I snack on these in between grabbing different sweets.
More heart shaped pink food from the dessert section.
This was so pretty and it's yes, heart shaped! Too bad I didn't get to try it. No more room in my tummy!
Heart shaped tiramisu. This was meh.
Now I know that I don't dislike macarons. I just dislike bad macarons. These were not good T_T but they surely look pretty.
The cake was dry... so sad.
Orange jelly, dark chocolate mousse and chocolate covered panna cotta. These were lovely!
Unlimited supply of Haagen Dazs Ice cream. Perfect if you love Haagen Dazs.
Another heart shaped dessert.
This was served to us as we asked for our bills. We ate so fast because we wanted to hurry home and see baby M (actually, to play mahjong T_T), they didn't anticipate us finishing so fast.
We were given this box of Shiseido skin care too! Wow! SC was upset he didn't get anything manly...
Despite some of the mehs, will I come back here again? I will. For a buffet, this is actually more than acceptable. Service was attentive, and I did appreciate all the pink heart-shaped stuff. This was the perfect choice for me.
Anyway, it was a lovely evening, this time, I really didn't mind being ripped off a little. As long as we're happy, right? I did feel a little guilty not bringing the baby with us, we ended up bringing home the heart shaped balloons for him to play him.
Oh, to maximize the cheesiness of the day, we actually got each other some el-cheapo gifts. What are they? Check them out here.
