My sparkly birthday lunch date with SC at Gaddi's.

I ordered the Ladies' Leisure Lunch, it comes with a non-alcoholic Bellini, which is great for me (I hate champagne based cocktails T_T). I love it!

SC's set lunch comes with a glass of wine, and it's very very delicious (this means a lot coming from someone who dislikes wine). And he insisted that I took this shot ^_^'
I'm glad I did. I love my 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens! Affordable, super light, super cute, sharp, with killer bokeh! (No, Canon didn't pay me to suddenly plug this ad in the middle of my blog post. I just love it THAT much).

My appetizer, smoked eggplant caviar with sliced marinated duck liver. It looks pretty, but I didn't really enjoy the mushy eggplant.

SC's appetizer's so pretty! It's sea bream tartar with whipped lemon cream and herring roe. Very light and refreshing. Love it.

My soup, shellfish consomme with lobster dumpling. Light, fragrant, tasty. It's nice.

My main, pan fried Australian beef filet with colorful carrots. Love it. Perfectly cooked meat. I adore.

SC had the beef cheek bourguignon with winter vegetables. It's lovely but it felt way to heavy for lunch. We should've picked something lighter.

SC's dessert, winter fruit compote with milk chocolate sphere and mandarin sherbet. Love the tart fruits & chocolate combo.

My dessert's a surprise. The Gaddi's sweet taste surprise (the name's a bit weird eh?). I am not a big fan of this dessert platter...not decadent enough to celebrate the depressing event of getting older. My bad. I shouldn't have ordered something I don't know, like... a surprise. Argh, I knew I wasn't a "ladies lunch" material.

Here's the obligatory couple photo.

And he had to do this while waiting for our food... he's so proud of it, he made me record a video T_T
