Extravagant Birthday Dinner

Musing:
人是不是应该要学习放松过人生?是不是不应该事事都那么执著?还是我们都被社会的种种拘束束缚着,所以很多事都不能不由得它去?

If life was meant to live to the fullest, why do so many of us give so many reasons so many times to stop ourselves to live the way we want? Why do we chose to give so many things up?




Almost two weeks ago, after celebrating my birthday on the 1st of March. I made a trip to KL the next day to attend a job interview and also, to meet up with Kenny, who has been kind enough to celebrate my birthday the second time with me and my friends. Isn’t that the sweetest thing~~!!!!

He chose a place which was recommended by Ringo. Café Café was the name of the place; fine dining was its style. Since my last visit to Paris three years ago, I never thought I would be eating my all time favorite delicacy Foie Gras again in another country other than France.

looks nice enough


I love fine dining, which is why France remains one of my favorite countries ever visited. Apart from my usual vege and raw food dietary, I take a fair deal of pleasure in savoring well prepared cuisines. Delicate food turns me on, literally, no really, I meant it.


Upon entering the restaurant, I had a feeling that I just entered a theatre with electricity shortage. How could anyone see anything in this kind of environment? I know it’s a place of romance, but this is ridiculous, I bet if you’re planning to make out here, no one else would have realized.

doesn’t it look like a theatre?

I have to use flashlight with every photo taken


It wasn’t until the second dish was served that I understood the purpose of their lightings.

escargot
Escargot… aka snails~~

God~ If the lights were fully on, I probably wouldn’t eat what I could see. *chills down my spine after examining this photo*

Honestly, it’s quite tasteless, it’s like chewing sponge. Now I have tried once, I wouldn’t mind a second time.

  1. Reasons stay reasons, nothing can stop you if your resolve's set.

    You give up so many things because of fear. Cast them aside.
