It’s been a week since I neglected our blog over the happening CNY this year. So much to catch up since we missed this festive season spending time at home last year building a giant snowman during Cap Goh Meh instead of spending time feasting on CNY meaty spread & exercising with mahjong when weather is tremendously hot.
Back in action feels so right. How was yours??
Bits & pieces of the beginning year when the TIGER came roaring:
#1 We welcomed the Tiger
#2 Traditional Hakka Vegetation ala Grandma’s recipe
#3 We welcomed the lion too. Lion dance by cousin’s bro troupe to usher more good luck into our home.
#4 Just when I thought our V-Day would be put aside to usher the Tiger year, Chris brought me out for dinner after sessions of family gatherings and Chinese feast. To dwindle away those mounting fatt choy, pork feet and sea cucumbers, we went for Italian. On the very first day on CNY. *glee*
Pasto was a good choice
Green is universal. Deco was simple yet comfortable. Enjoying each other’s company while chilling in a semi-aristocratic environment Italian restaurant is a temporary great escape from hot gambling sessions.
Shrimp and Orange Salad – RM10.50
Since they were out of mangoes, we had them replaced with oranges instead. To our surprise, it was equally good. A refreshing start of vege serving and oranges were thirst-quenching.
Mushroom Soup – RM6.80
Capped with bread pastry, hidden underneath was the mushroom soup. Thick and creamy. That’s what we love.
Escagort – RM18.90
I was nagging Chris to order this after spotting them at their mini aquarium. Strong aroma and flavours of cheese and garlic, it was very delectable. Extra credits given to the fresh escagorts. Dip in your garlic bread for extra strong-smelling pungent-tasting flavours. Yum.
With fresh herbs and garlic sauce, the seafoods (prawns and mussels) were also fresh. Tastewise, it was light and moderately good but the seafoods infused well into the noodles.
#5 Gifts from Pasto on V-Day
Complimentary ice cream we both shared 🙂
Roses & Heart
#6 Tiger vs Cupid. Who won?
Both. As we get to enjoy priceless family moments, without missing the traditional V-Day dinner. And the best part is, we’re not over-charged for the dinner! As dining in at Pasto was very affordable.
