I usually leave Valentine’s open for any last minute requests, so that leaves Valentine’s eve to be spent with the people I love. Here they are:
Aren’t they adorable? Hahaha okay I’m kidding, these birds are part of Garden’s decoration which cannot be missed if you’re coming out from the basement into the Central Area at the New Wing, 1 Utama. In fact they were so cute we decided there and then that we will celebrate our pre-valentine’s here.
My two loved ones aren’t those cute birds in the bird house, but Mikel and Zoe instead! They look so adorable posing with the birdhouse, don’t they? lol. This was all done while waiting for Christine, whom all of us were meeting for the first time, to arrive. It’s amazing how plurk brought us together like this 🙂
Welcome to Garden, 1 Utama 🙂
Garden’s ambience is really, really beautiful. A touch of nature with classy elegance created a fairy-like effect during our dinner session. Here’s Zoe smiling happily with the lovely scenery all around her 😀
My soup was first to arrive, it was pretty quick service if you asked me! Not too bad tasting too.
The service was great even with quite a decent amount of customers sitting around the area. There were 3 different sitting areas and one could opt for a dark, foresty feel, an open air feel (where we are) and the corner, out-of-the-way feel where couples can choose to be intimate without being watched 😉
Zoe’s tea arrive just then. She ordered some kind of flowery tea just to see what it’s all about, and we weren’t disappointed at all; the tea set was just simply too cute for words! The aroma was heavenly too, though one would find it wierd that the tea had a flowery taste to it. It’s something you have to get used to I guess.
One of the nicest things about the tea set is its tea cup. It’s so very dainty and cute, and you can see sort of
an air layer between the outside and its content, so that heat doesn’t reach the outer area, hence easy to hold. It gave some sort of an eatheral ambience to the whole experience 🙂
oh and I have to add everything in this restaurant is for sale! (watch out for the tags attached to the furnitures!)
Mikel and Christine here can be seen with their food… In fact, all of them ordered pasta in some form or another. Admittedly the portion wasn’t quite as big as, say, Italiannies, but we assure you these tastes much better (and less pricey, too!) 😀
I got myself the pinapple and hamd sandwhich. Don’t ask me why I got them, but I thought it was refreshing to have something citrusy that night 😉
Here’s Zoe’s pasta podorello, simply cause she’s a vegetarian and this is probably one of the few vegetarian selection there is. It was great though, I mean, who could resist those cute, juicy cherry tomatos!
Then our Calamari rings came, which was I have to say pretty good! Mikel definitely loved it 😀
Needless to say, Zoe was happy as well 😀
Yes we all know once the food is over and taken away, the blogger reaction in us calls for a great photographing secion. Here’s Mikel and myself camwhoring 😉
This is the four of us sealing our epic adventure through the lense of the camera. It was a really, really wonderful day 🙂
I am glad they the people I love get along so well with each other. It just goes to show the lucky person that I am 😀
Hahhaa I really love this photo!! lol. Thanks Mikel and Christine… You guys made it awesome 🙂
With that all over and done with, I feel Gardens gave the bestestest ambience ever for this year’s pre-Valentine’s. Thank you Garden, for providing us with such a beautiful place to camwhore 😛
Even to the end, I’m sure all of us were hoping for the time to stop. Having so much fun, laughing together and just enjoying each other’s company without any awkwardness is something I would give anything for. We’re so comfortable with each other that even when Mikel “flashed” we didn’t feel embarrassed one bit! hahha he’s just too funny XD
Thank you, Zoe, Mikel and Christine. My pre-Valentine’s day wouldn’t have been right without you guys. It was because of this that the day afterwards didn’t seem so bad after all, besides being uneventful for the first time in umpteenth years!
My heart belongs to you all. Thank you for sharing yours with me. *hugs*
