Nice Italian Cuisine

It is still cold but the sun came out again!
I think sakura will be in full bloom by this weekend!!!

Yesterday, we had a convivial party at an Italian restaurant in Omotesando. The party was hosted by our president (for female employees only) and we enjoyed foods in season complemented by wines! The course meal was similar to what we had last year, but since I was not familiarized with the place at that time, it didn't stand out in my memory. However, this year, I could savor the taste! All dishes were really delisious!!! I was so excited that I reserved the restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday, of course, at a special price ;)
I can't wait to go there!!!

And now for something completely different, I heared a shocking news from my mom this morning. My bedridden grandfather on the father's side contracted pneumonia, lying at death's door... He is going to be 94 on May 9th. Last time I saw him was about 2 years ago, after he recovered from a stroke. I have a very nice picture of him with grandma. He was doing fine for a while but it relapsed. Since then he was bedridden and now he is suffering from pneumonia. How fragile our life is...

Let's appreciate every day!

  3. Heh what can I say! Abolish "xenofoodophobia", eat globally that is my slogan on my blog. All cuisines are all good.

    My heart goes out for you about your grandfather, I just lost my uncle at a very young age. You are right,we should all appreciate life one day at a time! Hang in there Ochi!!!

  5. Hi jose,

  6. Hello Nazarina,

    I never heard of the word "xenofoodophobia". I just searched it and I got it! You always teach me a new thing. Good slogan! I totally agree with you!!! I still can't try insects and worms, though...

    I am sorry to hear about your uncle. Let's live long for them!

  7. Hi Ochi,

    Sorry about your grandfather.
