TBW never believed in braving the foot and car traffic during Valentine’s day. Therefore, it has always been tradition to celebrate this romantic day at home with a special cooked meal full of LOVE!

Begin with aesthetic…

Table decor taken from whatever is available in every nook and cranny of the house.

Flowers from the garden.

Cinnamon scented votive candles from Ikea bought in a HK trip many moons back and found inside the bathroom cabinet.

Kuy2"s Place Setting

The Menu…..

Specially brewed iced tea

Wine wine wine

Assorted cheese and cured meat platter

Bottom to top: Goose foie gras, duo of wagyu & angus rib eye, baked prawns, pesto pasta

All together now…

Dessert

Anything and everything that is done from the heart will always be a winner! It is all about love…..really =)

FOR VALENTINE’S DAY, LISTEN TO LOVE SONGS

14 Feb

…Part II.  Today is THE DAY!  Happy Valentine’s to all! Love, love and love. (Eat also, pray always =))

Here’s a treat from the deadly duo who has been making many ladies swoon.

CHRIS BOTTI AND STING
WHAT ARE YOU DOING THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?
What are you doing the rest of your life?
North and south and east and west of your life?
I have only one request of your life
That you spend it all with me.

All the seasons and the times of your days.
All the nickels and the dimes of your days.
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days.
All begin and end with me.

I want to see your face,
In every kind of light,
In fields of gold and
Forests of the night;
And when you stand before
The candles on a cake.
Oh let me be the one to hear
The silent wish you make.

Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
In the world of love you keep in your eyes,
Ill awaken whats asleep in your eyes,
It may take a kiss or two..

Through all of my life..
Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life,
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all of my life with you.
