My Simple 2013 New Year.....

My 2013 new year celebration was a good one...

Me and my wife were thinking whether want to go for those New Year countdown celebration like what we did last year...
After much discussion we decided to have a simple New Year Countdown..
As we know that it will be crowded and the traffic will be very bad..
unless we go to those prime countdown area using the LRT...

My New Year's Eve dinner was great .. My wife cook something for both of us....
These were what we had .......

The pork was very nice.. I felt that the texture and the taste is difference..
My wife told me that she bought the meat at Sanbanto
Is really GOOD (cost about RM10 for 2 pcs)

She even add on a cheese on the meat..
afraid that I am not fat enough.. lol (sorry the pic was a bit blur) 
was very kan cheong to eat...

I was so full after the dinner...
After that we went to Paradigm mall and have a taiwanese dessert...
We chat while eating some sweet dessert..
The feeling is really great.... another year that I spend together with my wife...
Think on all those great moments I had been together with her ... 2012 was really a year to remember...

I am not sure which combo that my wife order..
but it is nice...

Then when the strike of midnight, we could see fireworks outside my house balcony..
Maybe the firework was set up by some rich Datuks....

The next day we had our New Year Brunch at Alessio (Publica)
My friend told me that their food is great.. so we just went there and try it out...

Alessio at Publica...

We had pumpkin soup.. 
Taste is nice and creamy... but....
1) I found a small piece of plastic inside the soup and they change a new one for me...
2) The garlic bread was too oily...
3) It will be good if the pumpkin soup is hotter...

Smoke Salmon pizza..
I like it .. the crust is very good.. 
Not so thin and not so thick... but..
I need to wait for 45 mins for this pizza..

Pasta carbonara with fried chicken..
I also like this dish..
the fried chicken is very crispy and not very thick with bread crumbs...
I like the chili oil that they add beside the pasta. give an extra spicy kick on it..

It is a good place.. but certainly need a lot of improvement on their services...
Their pepper grinder is really a big problem.. 
I grind it for quite some time and the pepper hardly come out..
I guess that 80% of their workers are foreign.. 

I was so happy that I won 1st prize in Diana Teo's blog..
As I informed that I will travel more frequent with my wife in 2013.
I shall follow her free and easy travel itinerary
this is the 2nd time lucky for me... hopefully more "ONG" to come for year 2013... 

Thank you so much Diana...
