Looking all grown up for his doctor’s visit. I swore never to be one of those mums who suffer from Empty Nest Syndrome but got to admit I prefer Russell in baby clothes.
All week, I was looking forward to brunch at Carpenter & Cook. It was really sweet of Zee to share a prize that she had won from a Granny's Day Out contest with us.
It was as if someone switched off the ‘Full’ button in my brain. I just kept snacking all afternoon throughout the movie, relieving the fridge of our chocolate and moooncake stash.
Oktoberfest is the perfect excuse to pig out. I truly wish I had the discipline to say "no" but frankly with all the sweet stuff I had all day, my tastebuds were clamoring for real food; and hunks of roasted pork knuckle fitted the bill perfectly.
And since we were on a dessert roll, an order was put in for the Tart of the Month – Chocolate and Almond Pear Tart. I must say, although I never liked fruit-and-chocolate-anything, this was a mighty fine tart.
The feasting did not stop on Sunday as we went for a buffet lunch at
Preggers Prego with my in-laws.
The Four Seasons Hotel might look a little dated but they have amazing floral displays. Love the use of pumpkin in the instance. Very appropriate for Halloween, Autumn and Thanksgiving.
Hope you had a gut-busting weekend too!
