that heady feeling called lurrrve




Was intrigued by this on the menu last night, listed as intermezzo. My first time trying this, and what an experience.

Boy was it potent - each mouthful sent icy shots of alcohol into my system. I could almost feel it rushing into my blood. Not unlike sipping very nicely chilled bubbly.. A nice idea I must say.

A nice touch to our first Vday celebration.

Yeah, commercialised it was, and ripped off we were, but the company made it more than worth the while, by miles and yards.. :) Though credit has to be granted to the venue, who interspersed surprises throughout the night - from complimentary wine, to roses, perfume, polaroids, and to top it off, a pair of movie tix. It helped that the food was pretty good too - highlights were fresh sashimi, foie gras and some pretty decent ice-cream. Mmm.

At the end of the day, the food, the service, the ambience didn't really matter. Our gifts to each other were more practical than frivolous, but methinks tis a kind of sweetness that comes from knowing each other's needs. That undescribeable feeling of growing in love, as rough edges of two starkly contrasting personalities smoothen and fit into place. It's been a tumultuous ride, but that only made the smoothening out all the sweeter.

And I shall endeavour to bear all these in mind the next time we fight. :p

Happy Valentine's, dear.. Ü
