Happy Valentine's Day (14 Feb 2014)

Love is in the air

Hoping everyone had a nice Valentine's Day with their loved ones. My day started off with the Mrs leaving me some adorable heart-shaped watermelon for breakfast and a heart of yummy Bacio chocolates on my man cave desk. I also received some much needed new board shorts and a t-shirt which fit me perfectly — woohoo! I bought some red roses for her and some Lancome Tresor perfume from David Jones which also came with a bonus gift pack — awesome. During the day I spotted a rainbow rose in Martin Place which I'd never seen before. Very cool. For dinner we dined at Tastevin in Darlinghurst for the first time which is a lovely French bistro and is highly rated on Urbanspoon. We started with a Negroni and Kir Royal to settle into the night and then followed with a lovely meal of freshly shucked oysters, duck live pate, confit duck leg, beef fillet, creme caramel, flambeed crepes suzette, creme brulee and all washed down with French wine. The friendly and polite service and nice decor made for a perfect night out and one to fondly remember.

Nice! We didn't do anything romantic but spent the day together, which is quite unusual for us :)
