Celebrating our 3rd year anniversary on 19/06 at VIVO, an Italian restaurant.

The ambience is nice, service good apart from taking forever to serve the food. The food so-so only. Rick didn't like his tuna dish. My lamb rack turned out quite nice but the crème brulée I ordered was rather disappointing, well just not how I like it. It was a full 3 course meal which we don't normally do, and we ended up sleeping with fully stuffed stomach. Awful! The punishment of being gluttonous is definitely not pleasant.

That's a lovely blue dress! The food looks yummy from the photos but didn't taste good. Oops.

Doreen said...

Thanks, and I went back to look at the pic, it does seem like I was playing piano. Hahaha.

Thanks and you're dead right! The company matters the most.

Thanks. It is actually green colour, but the flash somehow made it looks like blue. The food, good to see, bad to eat. Hahaha

Thanks. Aiyo, it's a green dress leh. :)

Hit the bus dress? Hahaha, that's a very interesting way of describing it. Thank you for your kind words, I'm really humble by it. I'm just happen to be an average gal having a bit more knowledge in make-up that's all. Vogue and Cosmopolitan are just too big of a hat for my head. Hehehe. You keep well Lee.

Doreen said...

Thank you dear. It's a once a year event so must dress up. Hehehe

Haha, GREEN dress it is! Hehehe. I got it from an online shop in Ebay.
