Four years and some change ago, I started this blog. It’s morphed from a space to a place where I can share my food review, relationships, my spiritual life, My God and a few heartfelt moments along the way.
I have always found solace in writing things down. Over the last 4 years, I’ve shared how “explore the world with You” means as I journey this sweet life with my boyfriend together with God who orchestrate everything. It was done to leave my thoughts in a place that I could easily revisit. I was startlingly getting emotional as I revisit my blog. Time indeed flies so fast as cliche as it may sound. Questions in mind like “what would it be like if God did not allowed these things to happen in my life?”, “what’s on my mind at this very moment if this did not happened?”, “Where would I be without Him?”, “Am I happy like what I am right now?” lead me to tears as I felt the unpretentious gratitude in my heart. Every single second was indeed amazing… Life is so gooooood! Yeah, I’m really blessed with everything.
And here I am trying to write my last anniversary date blog. This day carries pretty important memories for us and I would always remember how it all began. So much feels…
Celebrated on the day itself at Caviar Restaurant & Champagne Bar.. We were glad to know that a fine dining restaurant like this can be found in Alabang. There’s no need for us to travel far anymore to celebrate and we don’t have to schedule it during weekends since it’s so accessible!
A romantic ambiance and living room area complete with fireplace welcomed us as we enter the place. Over there is the Champagne Bar. When you turn left to the door, you’ll find the garden area. It was raining so we decided to sit on the couch.
Jaime, our server for the night, who took care of us last night introduced every details in the menu which we really appreciate.
He came back and present this ridiculously huge cut of cowboy steak good for 4-6 persons. There’s no way we can eat this alone. I guess we’ll come back and bring our reinforcements. This steak is soooooo inviting! We’ll definitely try this one.
He even greeted us with a complimentary sparkling wine to celebrate our anniversary. What can you expect from a Champagne bar?
Pau would always initiate to take this time to give glory to God for this special milestone and that’s what I love about him.
One of the servers came by with the complimentary house bread basket that had a selection of phyllo flatbread, a nice sourdough, and brown bread rolls. Everything is baked fresh in the kitchen and is served with an olive oil dip with a touch of balsamic vinegar, creamy butter, and green olives. I love bread and I would always ask for refill whenever they ask me.
I would love to try all these! I’m sure my best friend would love to try this too!
Served to jumpstart the night!
Bisque de Homard, poached Lobster Meat and Truffle Oil served in a different manner. Jamie poured the soup in front of us and even whipped out his whipped out his humongous pepper mill to season our soup. It was entertaining! I was using 50mm that time so I wasn’t able to take a photo.
To cleanse our palate before our main course, Jamie served us a small scoop of Sorbet with a balsamic reduction. I could taste a sweet langka and hints of lemon in my tiny glass. It tickles in my mouth. This was a very happy intermission before the main entrées.
This time we skipped the appetizer and upgraded the 28 Days Dry Aged Bone in Rib-Eye for surf and turf. You just need to add P850.00 for upgrade. I say this is the best decision that we’ve made.
Now who doesn’t want a Lobster and Steak anyway? The combination was the best!!! We were laughing at each other because we don’t have space left for dessert. It’s the first time ever in history. We love sweets but we cannot eat anymore this time.
Jamie brought another two complimentary glasses of Limincello. I asked the alcohol percent this time since I am getting sleepy already and he said 30%. We’re not a wine person and if I managed to finish a glass of it, I would ask Pau to take me home immediately. I might fall asleep in an instant. Haha!
We wanted to cancel our movie date, Hercules, after the dinner but didn’t make it on time so we watched it anyway. We fell asleep in the movie house. Haha!
We toured around the restaurant. Later then I found out that Sir Frank, the owner and chef, prepared our food himself.
Picture taking behind the wines. Everything from the restaurant was also designed by Sir Frank.
These four years have been beautiful and grace-filled; a blessing and a challenge. Who would have thought that we are about to get married in almost four months? All in all, I’d say that we’ve fared pretty well, partner. We’ve been through a lot and experienced His grace and we will experience more of His in the next chapter.
I look forward to our first anniversary. This time, not a fine dining anymore but travel. :D Happy Anniversary!
