Valentine's Surprise & Dinner @ Le Midi

YAY, my Valentine surprise mission was totally a success! At first I was worried I wouldn't have enough time to get the materials as Huannie's flight had changed to an earlier one and I would need to prepare all these when he was home with me, which made it more difficult to surprise him. But somehow I managed to do these. Look how happy he was and how he smiled while reading the special cards I made him, warms my heart again. 

Few days before Valentine, we both thought we wouldn't be able to make it to our dinner as Huannie was still working overseas. Lucky us and lucky me, he managed to come back on time and we went to Le Midi restaurant for our candle light dinner. It wasn't the best dining experience we had, the food was really below average. I'm not sure if I should accept my self-explained excuse for them of having a fully booked situation where the chef was not able to make as equal good quality food as the usual hours. Besides the food, there was a lack of staffs with a fully booked dinner services. I could see they were really working on this as our five course Valentine's dinner set was served very fast. Starter was served less than 10 minutes after we settled down (which is fine), however entrée, first course, main course and desserts were all served like they were rushing us to finish our dishes :/ I was asking Huannie shall we give another try while there is lesser crowd, his answer was a NO. So i guess this will be our last dining at Le Midi.

Below are our first-course Valentine dinner set with my food ratings. 
Marinated beef carpaccio with toasted almonds and white celery, 4 out of 5.
Mozzarella ravioli with basil pesto sauce, 3 out of 5. 
Fagliolini with lobster and zucchini, 2 out of 5.
Barramundi fillet with asparagus and lime in Prosecco wine reduction, 1 out of 5.
Duck breast with honey and sweet wine with onions and cinnamon apple purée, 4 out of 5.
Chocolate fondente delice with orange Chantilly, 3 out of 5. 
My ratings do not reflect overall food feedback :)

The food didn't bother us long as we had more important thing to do after that - taking our Valentine outfit shots. So vain :D
I'm wearing:
Fashion Bloggerrr top // H&M skirt // Christian Louboutin heels // Chanel Boy bag

Huannie wearing:
Helmut Lang jacket // Rick Owens pants and sneakers

Dear Love Lord, we both have been through a lot last year. Love, appreciation and trust keep us together. I'm feeling blessed
Love you boo x

PS: I'm still waiting for my belated V present, don't try to run away :p
