Another year wiser

It was hubby's birthday yesterday so I gave him a dinner treat. These days I seldom buy him presents unless if there's something specific which he wants. Most of the times, we'll settle with a meal.
Went to Raintree cafe at Flemington Hotel for a simple celebration.

xmas tree decor on the table

the birthday boy who hardly smile when taking photo =_=

thats me


ordered this Chicken Valdostana Milanese for myself


hubby had grilled black pepper steak


a blur camwhored photo of us



The food was ok but the service is still abit slow, there were no customer last night when we were there. Somehow the chinese restaurant upstair makes more business than this one, I wonder can this western cafe survives?

last but not least, a plate of his favourite fruit as dessert ^^

After the fattening dinner, I made myself stand for at least 30 mins and did the invisible chair pose while Facebooking =_=

  2. Hahaha, settled at Raintree, eh? I thought both of you will be jelak at the sight of western food. Oh ya, you said you had mostly Chinese food during your last trip :p My bad.

    I prefer Panorama although the ambience isn't as nice as Raintree. The food is a bit pricey, hardly seen the cafe in 'Full' mode and yeah, makes me wonder how they survive.

  4. Eugene, haha, I dont drink Guinness now, so he'll need to drink on his own, 'mou yan'. So, skipped the Guinness :P

    Yvonne, initially I suggested to go AutoCity but it was kinda late already, so settled at Taiping =_=
    Yes, Panorama or Nagaria is ok as well ^^

    Angeline, thanks thanks ;)

  8. Same, me too here, I no longer buy birthday presents for my hubby's birthday anymore, unless there's something that he really wants (and within my budget!). After getting married is mostly treating him to food for birthday, and he treating me to food too for my birthday.

  12. Same here, we buy each other presents whenever we like but definitely not for birthdays haha. Happy belated birthday to your lou-gung.

    For me, after a fattening meal, I will drink some freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice. I have this silly pre-conceived idea that the acid will neutralize all the oil and won't make me fat haha :)
