Week's End

// Caught the movie Avengers: Age of Ultron! Didn't appreciate the animated beginning scene, but that was much forgotten when I focused more on the story line. The ending had left me heartbroken to see them far apart from each other. WHY!?

// J and his brother prepared additional dish stir-fry black pepper tenderloin with vegetable on top of his mum's lemak chicken and prawn. We thought this cooking and preparation method will make me appreciate beef more (I mean, c'mon, it's tenderloin), but sad to say this attempt fails. Gaaah.

// Dinner ended early, we even thought of going Lady M at Orchard Central for its chocolate crepe. J was being all dilly dally while watching Star Awards. After witnessing one artist slipped and fall, we went to airport to roam around for ice-cream. Turns out Swensen's at airport was super crowded. What. We ended up with a drink from Koi, envying the crowd in departure hall, wondering when will be our turn.

Alphabet Date // Letter B

With J's unemployment coming to an end, I wanted to throw in another alphabet date to help motivate him some ways. When he confirmed the initial dinner plan with his family is not going to happen, I took over the baton of thinking. Why B? Well.... I was wearing a black dress and J could put on a black t-shirt when he picks me up from work. Then again, since when are we not in black right?

Slightly tempted by its menu, we headed to Backstage Cafe after work. J purposely rode to fit the theme and he's pretty proud of the move. Haha. Took us awhile to locate the place because he went the wrong direction, I realised it was a building I have go by pass a couple of times. The interior was so much more cosy than we expected, so much so it has inspired J's dream cafe.

When I share about my debate between Seafood Marinara and Crab Meat Pasta, he frowned and shook his head, totally judging me with that expression of his. The audacity! He wouldn't tell me the reason for that action, but I know it would've been "It's so predictable of you, so basic." Gaaah. I still went ahead with the former, what have I got to lose right?

Prawn Aglio Olio
Crispy Fried Chicken Wings
Our plates of pasta tasted soooo good! J is very strong in his pasta cooking, so it's not easy for him to compliment one, let alone liking. For him to give a nod and letting his taste buds party, it tells a lot about this particular one. If you should know, he totally took back his opinion about my choice when he tried the Seafood Marinara. The chicken wings were rather mediocre though. Nonetheless, two tummies were happy.

It was still early to retire home, so we headed to town for some window shopping, in hope to get a new pair of TOMS. Sadly there wasn't even one pair in Rockstar by Soon Lee. Gaaah. Overall, pleased with our dinner and how the evening went, you bet we had a ball of our time. (Sorry, I just had to. LOL!)
What would you plan for this letter during alphabet dating?
