Farewell In Olivenz With Princess

A night to remember, a song dedicated to Princess....

Coming back to The Night To Remember, it is all about another farewell to my good friend, Elin's princess. Her princess will be leaving in a couple of days for overseas to further her studies. (Elin,Elin, please don't cry, I can sense u dabbing your eyes now, forgive me if I made you cry again ....and again, nah, take some tissues and sniff them out....)

Prior to her departure, Princess insisted on "treating" me to a dinner and Elin suggested Beacon Point but unfortunately, it was closed. We adjourned to Olivenz Bistro instead. It was my first time there and definitely it will not be the last. The food was not bad or perhaps it was due to the company that left some good memories behind... Anyway, we really enjoyed our evening together..

Before we could "walloped" the food,
someone here was very busy taking photographs...
she didn't realize she was being taken as well...
OOhhh... she will "murder" me for this! LOL...

first comes our refreshing drink, lemon plus honey...

my BBQ salmon - wunderbar...

Elin's chicken chop...

Princess's lamb shoulder

sidedish-soft shell crab

and lastly, Princess & Auntie Claire
Thank you, Elin & Princess for the Wonderful dinner! I....
Wish you all the best in everything you do &
May God pave a smooth way for you too...
