x Monthsary Date Night @ Pasta Brava!
Last week was a really hectic one for both Will and I. I'm really glad that he still made the effort by taking time out of his schedule to plan and bring me out for a nice dinner date for our x Monthsary (: And guess what? We're back at the Duxton again! Told ya Duxton is the new cool hangout place for all occasions, heh. ;)
Dinner was at Pasta Brava that was patronized by mostly Caucasians. It was full house even on a weekday evening so I suggest that you should call and reserve for a table too!
Satisfying our hunger pangs with warm soft bread while waiting for our appetizers!
Scallops sauteed with white wine, bechamel sauce & oven-glazed //
Look at how huge the scallop is and they've got 5 inside this yummy cheesy sauce! Perfect for the cheesy lovers like us. This is definitely a MUST-order!
Savoured a small bite of it and it melted in my mouth... We both just looked at each other then he said: "Woahhhh I wanna dieeeee... Sooo good!!!" Haiyo, my drama boyfee as usual but yes, it's really so good that the plate was squeaking clean in the end. Best foie gras I had!
Here comes the main course!
Fettuccine Alla Carbonara//
Squid ink spaghetti//
Carbonara has always been my all-time favourite but we both preferred their squid ink spaghetti more cos it is less 'gelat' as compared to the former. And oh, cos the portions of their pasta are pretty huge too so I suggest that you should share them!
But please do not order squid ink spaghetti on your first date thou.... HAHAHAHAHAH.
STILL LURBZX YOU. <3
While waiting for your food to be served, you can draw on the table with some chalks provided too!
Aww, seems like we're not the only one who celebrated our special day here.... (:
Cos I couldn't decide which desserts to order for us.... Boyfriend ordered two.
Yeah, I know... We over-ordered again. :(
We both enjoyed it! It was neither too sweet nor too runny.
Honestly, I have a pretty sweet tooth. But.... The moment I had the first bite of it, I just looked at Will and said, "No. You won't like this." It was really TOO SWEET, ewww. Then, guess what?
Will took a small bite of it, gave me a blank face like :| pushed it back to me, and said: "OKAY, THANKS BABY!!! You ordered this." with a cheeky grin. OHMAHGAWDDD??!?! That pretty much explains my "NOOOOO" face so we ended up wasting at least 1/3 of it, sigh. :(
Nevertheless, we had a really awesome dinner date (:
But self-reminder: WE REALLY NEED TO STOP OVER-ORDERING(!!!)

Before I end this post, here's a happy picture of us!
We're actually not big fans of celebrating monthsary, especially Will. Honestly, I don't expect gifts or extravagant meals for monthsaries and all I really want is just to spend some quality time together, even if it's just doing nothing or our own things together. That's why I really, really appreciate it when Will surprised me a Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet the other time cos he realized my Kate Spade was pretty old already and this time round, he actually planned, kept me in suspense and wanting to surprise me for our dinner date just to make me happy. As much as I said I don't expect gifts or I don't celebrate, it is a huge bonus to me. I mean, which girl doesn't love it when their boyfriend plan something special on a special occasion, right?
I must say, being in this relationship with Will has really taught me a lot because we're such total opposites, be it our personality, upbringing, lifestyle etc. It's almost everything. But don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. In fact, I'm thankful for it cos it's really true that opposite attracts ;) One of the most important things I've learnt from us is that relationships are not just about giving & taking, it's also about appreciating each other for being here for one another and not take it for granted...
And most importantly, you have to let each other know how you truly feel.
A few days ago, while I was putting on some make-up before heading out with him...
He suddenly (solemnly) said: Thank you.
I just had to stop whatever I was doing and asked: "For?"
And, he replied: "Hmmm, for everything..."
It was such a simple gesture that really warms my heart even up till now while I'm typing this down...
Thank you so much for everything too, my love. <3
Communication is really one of the keys to a healthy and happy relationship (I am still learning everyday) and remember, no amount of 'Thank you's is ever enough... The day you stopped saying "Thank you" to your partner will be the day you're starting to take them for granted. So, don't let it happen. (:
Till then, xx!
I'm no angel, I'm just me
But I will love you endlessly.
