The sweetest “frosting” ever!

Every 2nd of the month, rif and I would celebrate our monthly anniversary. We’ve been doing this since we started dating. One of the places we often go for dinner is Latest Recipe at Le Meridien. Huge buffet spread, good ambiance and an affordable price tag (50% discount with the Starwood card) – what’s not to like?

“Have you made reservations for tonight?” I asked.

He told me not to worry, as he has taken care of everything. I didn’t suspect anything, because he picked me up straight from work, still clad in his office wear. We alighted from the escalator and as I was about to enter Latest Recipe, he pulled me to the left…into Prime!

“I feel like having a good steak tonight,” he reasoned. In his hand, was a paper bag, with my belated birthday present — I was told to wait for it since June.

8oz Imperial Wagyu cube roll with bone marrow creme brulee and roasted root vegetables

rif asked me to order ANYTHING I wanted. At that time, only two things crossed my mind:

1) He got a bonus.

2) He messed up real bad…he wanted to feed me well, so I would be less angry.

The food was good and dessert was exemplary. He gave me my gift after I finished dessert.

I opened the paper bag excitedly, and got this…..


Giving me a gadget (unless it’s an iPad) for a gift is like giving a child a carrot stick when what he/she really wants is an ice cream. I starred at the “long-awaited” gift, sorely disappointed.

When I regained composure, I looked up. And there he was looking all nervous, holding a ring…while uttering the magic words. I was too shocked to reply, so I left the poor boy hanging for one minute or so. According to him, that was the longest 60-seconds of his life! Hahahaha…

November 2, 2010 will be a day I remember for the rest of my life, and Prime will always be a restaurant close to my heart.
