In the afternoon, brought mum out to The Gardens Mall for some shopping. Wasn't really productive as mum only bought a necklace and pendant. Tried looking for lipstick, but she was quite picky. Even the packaging was a main concern. :S. But it was nice looking at the decorations. As usual, The Gardens Mall was more classy compared to MidValley's super-cluttered style this year. Lunch was at Sushi Tei. Generally good, but I'd advise against the nigiri sushi. Praise for the chasoba and tempura. Went to Les Deux Garcons again to collect the petit gateau. This time round, the fella didn't even check the order book! KNS! Just asked me to choose. Choose the passion fruit, hazelnut and raspberry variety. Truly yummy stuff.
Back home, I watched a very old horror-comedy, "Army of Darkness". I had earlier watched the "The Evil Dead" and "The Evil Dead 2". I vaguely remember the second installation from my childhood and wanted to re-watch the series to find out why it attained cult following. I'm still baffled. LOL. I think the second's the best.
My anniversary dinner was at Harbour Steamboat where you have to wait even though you made a reservation. Only my second time there. And I was so lucky to bump into an ex-colleague of mine whom I had not met for nearly a decade. Could still recognize me though I looked like a cicak kubing back then. When at Harbour, it is a must to order their homemade items. My all time favourite among their selection is the prawn balls. Very fresh and succulent. Soup-wise we ordered half papaya white fungus and half Macau pork bone. Just a subtle difference between the two. Their chili sauce was also yummy, and I had a lot of that with chopped Chinese parsley. Uncommon items on our table that day-- pig liver, pig kidney and pork tendon. At the end of dinner, my ex-colleague asked me, "What's so special about this place?". I replied-- the crazy crowds and the expensive price tag. But seriously, always order their premium items, else it's quite like any other steamboat. If price is a concern, you can always chose to order half a portion.
The night was not complete without visiting the place where it all started-- Sweet Bean. Too bad that 'our table' was occupied. Although we were all super full, we ordered something anyway. With slow sips, we finished the desserts anyway. Felt that it was a simple yet satisfying celebration for our six years together. Love you dear!
