My (advance) birthday celebration

So I celebrated my birthday last weekend, 2 weeks in advance! We are not sure when the BB is going to arrive, and Rick wanted to give me a nice (and last) birthday dinner celebration as a couple, making the best out of our freedom before we are “jailed” for an extend period. LOL

So Rick went ahead to make a reservation at One80°, a restaurant hiding inside Copthorne hotel at Oriental Bay. This year celebration is a bit different than the previous ones, in fact this is the first time we did it this way. We, at the very last minute decided to crash two restaurants this time. One80° for entrée & main meals, then hopped over to The White House just a few blocks away for dessert! We wanted One80° as we have never been there, then we (well, particularly myself) were attracted to the dessert menu offered at the White House. I have always wanted to try this French dessert, tarte tartin and I was extremely delighted to find it in their menu! What would I do without you, internet!
