020: Epicure

Belated post with pictures taken on my birthday celebration last year.

Perhaps it had to do with the recent "spring-cleaning" of my papers to bring to Laine's for paper exchange.. basically they'll take 20 pieces of any old papers and exchange it for a $10 voucher - the 20 pieces of old papers are for workshops for charity. While looking through the papers buried in my Cropper Hopper (loves!) I found a Teresa Collins piece from the Bon Appetit range.. that got me started.

There is a small 4 x 6 mini-album on the page to showcase all the photos of the food. Its an accordion album and I got the idea from Scarlet Lime's project kit page for August. Yes, so outdated! I know!

Mini album cover:
It says dinnertime! Heh. I had not enough letter "N" left for this font set, so had to be creative (and "kiam siap" at the same time) - I cut out the outline of the letter N and stick it onto white cardstock. =P
The place we had dinner was Hangout Hotel at Mt Emily.

Page 1:
Wild Rocket, the restaurant's name, and the starter we shared (roast pumpkin wild rocket salad with feta cheese).

Page 2:
The main courses (duck confit for G and ribeye for me), plus what was left after we mopped up the food. Accessories to murder: the fork, knife and spoon haha.

Page 3 (the flipside page of the accordion album):
How could any meal I eat possibly NOT include dessert? Especially, chocolate dessert. =P
Kueh buloh tiramisu with espresso ice cream for G and my warm chocolate cake.
The last pic is actually kind of "out" cos it was the birthday cake-cookie from my parents, not eaten in the same sitting with the rest, but hey its the only thing that said Happy Birthday Ming!
