Lobster Pince and Pints

When this restaurant first opened in Bangsar, I wanted to try it out
but of course, the price factor made me put this place on hold 
because pricey meals are to be saved for special occasions.

Reviews from family and friends on this place was that it's expensive and that the lobster is small.
I suppose that most would expect a fat ass lobster with the hefty price but then again, it's just that . . . our Ringgit is so SMALL! :(

And lobsters to me are always associated with luxury since I was small
because I have never came across a cheap lobster (except for those sold seasonally at Aeon).

As it was the husband's birthday, we had a reason to head there!

Actually, it was the husband who mentioned that he wanted to try it out
because I kind of forgot about wanting to eat here.

Fine dining and expensive meals are a thing of the past for me
especially now with the additional expenses at home #keepingitreal

I need to start on "Project Frugal" soon !
If it ever kicks off, I will write about the plans I have for minimising our household expenses. Hahaha. Wish me luck.

In all honesty, I really enjoyed my meal here.

The lobster noodles was good. It was easy.
I liked the lobster roll too.

However, I do not fancy the chilli lobster sauce but that is probably just a personal preference.

Engagement Party

Ash planned an engagement party to celebrate Ying's engagement.
There's always a reason to celebrate.

Had tea @ Maison Francaise.

I always can't seem to think of places to have tea but when I do, this place just pops up automatically. It's not because tea here is superb but it's the ambience that makes it worthwhile for photo taking! :)

There was also a theme - ahem - "Gossip Girl". 

The last time I watched GG was easily 10 years ago.

I can never keep up with American drama series because there are just way too many seasons!

Husband's birthday

The only time I ever cook "home cooked" meals at home is when I am too lazy to instruct my domestic helper on "what to do" so I'll just whip it up by myself (provided that it is easy to cook) - I'll usually cook pastas on my own and anything else - I'll just ask her to do it.

IF I did not have any help at home, I think that I'd start catering meals.

Baby O can only play independently for a very, very short period of time.
The moment she is alone, she'd start bawling her eyes out
and I would not be able to accomplish anything during the day.

I would let her cry though if I had a choice but I don't
because the moment she is stressed or frustrated, she will start scratching herself 
and digging her nails into her skin (on her face and neck) !

That is why there are days that her skin is just full of scabs :(

With her current sensitive skin, I literally do not have a choice but to stop her from "self harming" herself unknowingly.

Even for the husband's birthday meal, I got my mother's help to do marketing and she delivered the stuff to my house a few days before.

In the morning, I wrote down a list of things for my domestic helper to do - boil chicken bones, cooked hard boiled eggs, fry garlic til crispy, cut spring onions,  chillies, fry fish, etc.

So what I did was to just cook the noodles, add seasoning into the broth, boil the pork ribs and cook the prawns and serve it! 

I ain't no superwoman at home !!!

Birthday mee suah

Baby O looking miserable - because she was ! Her poor, poor skin.

Cake was by Fat Deb Bakes. Asked for a golf cake - taste wise it was good but the "hole" on the cake could have been aesthetically better. Hahaha.

Later in the day, we just hung out @ The Gardens.
