28th July means a lot to me. This year, 28th of July will be the exactly 1 year after I left AAN, my first company after graduate from university. Learnt a lot from the company and met a bunch of great friends. I still keep in touch with them every now and then, especially during the weekends.
28th of July is also me and Calvin’s anniversary. Since we are getting married and there’s a lot of expenses that we need to pay, I told Calvin that I don’t want flower this year. Instead, a simple dinner will do. I told him twice and I really mean it. Imagine the surprised that I received when I was working and suddenly someone came into my office and looking for me. I was sitting at Joey’s place to do some testing. When I heard my name being called, I looked up and saw a man carrying…
A bouquet of gorgeous blue rose!! I was really shocked at that moment that I asked Joey “For me ah??” a few times before that man reached my working station. They look amazing and beautifully wrapped. Calvin brought it from Cheryl working place and requested for early delivery (before my lunch time). I was very happy that I can’t stop myself from smiling during work. I called Calvin once I finished my testing to thank him.
He insisted to pick me up from work, which is kind of weird at first but I thought he don’t want me to carry the bouquet of roses and take the monorail after work. The crowded passengers might squashed my bouquet roses into rose petals when I got off the station.
Once I got into the car and thanked him again for the roses, he reached into the right side of his seat and gave me the 13th rose..
The perfume that I have been searching high and low at KL!! I received a sample while walking along Orchard Road, Singapore during my trip there. I fell in love with the scent immediately and told Calvin about it. Sadly, it is not on sale yet in Malaysia. My nice Pooh asked Sai Fong for help as she has a lot of friends from Singapore and one of them travel back to KL quite often. I was really happy when I received the present. That is so sweet of my Pooh.
Took a few photographs with the beautiful bouquet when we reached home. We have decided to have our anniversary the next day as both of us were on leave on the 29th. It’s the date where we select the gowns for our pre-wedding photo shoot.
I don’t have the photographs of the gowns that I have selected because they don’t allow photographs to be taken. I only have 1 which Calvin took really quick when nobody was looking. I can’t reveal it yet. Just have to wait for my wedding day next year where my guests will be able to see them during dinner
After choosing the wedding gowns, we went back to change and Pooh drove me to Bangsar. He was being very secretive about the place. He won’t let me know the name of the restaurant (which I will definitely Google about it) and even the type of cuisine that we will be having. I respect his request for me not asking too much but just follow him. He always has this great plan for our special day and my birthday.
The name of the restaurant is Opus Bistro at Bangsar. The place is very lovely and perfect for a quiet dinner with your loved ones. The waiters and waitresses are very nice and they provide perfect service to each and every customers. It is also the place for drinks on weekend nights with friends where gossip/talking/chatting occupies 90% of the outing. Just not too loud as you might disturb the lovebirds at the table next to you. Hehe. They have a variety of wine from all over the world to choose from. Me and Pooh is more to juice people so we ordered juices instead of wine.
Free appetizers are provided. Bread dipped with olive oil and vineger. Our first try of eating bread this way. I love it as I love sour food but Calvin finished his bread just as it is cause he don’t really like sour food. The bread was served still warm and quite good even though you eat them without dipping on the sauce.
We shared the seafood soup. The nice waitress was kind enough to ask us if we would like the chef to separate the soup into 2 bowls before serving. This is actually the first time we were asked such question. Very considerate for those who would love to share a bowl of soup without even have to pass the soup to the other person from time to time. The soup is made from tomato base and contains a 2 fresh prawns, 2 mussels, clams and squids. I love it as the I can actually taste the seafood from the soup itself. Not to mention that the seafood was really fresh.
Calvin had lobster with steak while I ordered cod fish as our main. Calvin preferred my cod fish over his lobster and steak as the fish was really good. Sweet and fresh. Went well with the vegetables and sauce. This was also my first time eating olives. I don’t eat olives previously as they are bitter (mainly found them in pizza and pasta). I separated out a few initially but decided to give it another try. I ate them together with the fish and it was actually not bad after all. It’s a little bit salty and went quite well with the fish. I managed to persuade Pooh to try too! Just like me, he can accept the taste but would prefer to enjoy the sweetness and freshness of the fish. I finished the whole plate all by myself including the carrots. Pooh’s steak and lobster was quite good. Maybe I was on diet currently, so I don’t go crazy over steak anymore. I used to order steak or lamb whenever I have the chance. Now, I prefer seafood and I have got myself used to it as I only went through the seafood section on the menu. Haha.
We shared a dessert that was highly recommended by the bloggers and even the waitress herself. It’s hot chocolate pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We waited for quite long for the desserts but it was all worth it. As we enjoyed this heavenly dessert, we realised that this dessert is actually made during order. When we cut the puff into half, steaming hot chocolate flow out. Really good. Perfect for sharing after dinner. But both me and Pooh still agrees that the chocolate pie at Café Café is still the best dessert that we had, to date.
My most handsome Pooh that never fails to surprise me with all the good stuffs for our special day. The effort and research that he put in for us to celebrate and enjoy this wonderful day is the best present that I could ask for. Thank you so much, Pooh. I Lap Eu
I shall end this happy post with a beautiful, gorgeous, cute, pretty etc photograph of me…
