Oh my god, it's been ten, the tenth!....10th! A decade ago we first flew here in Bangkok with two other friends. We had a great time though.... oh well, I snoozed the whole trip which made me missed the bottomless drink on Thai Airways. Believe me, I didn't even have a glass of water I was so tired I didn't sleep the night before as a result, I had my nap at full length. Not ranting but hmm...time flies, that was ten years ago.
And of course, I thought of celebrating it yesterday, the 5th though I was pretty on my own here in Bangkok. I had a dessert and because I felt it was too much and full of guilt, I had a meal after. Hmm..talking about proper order, dessert then meal! :D
Anyway, 'After You Dessert Cafe' is special. The cafe offers a variety of beautiful ..yes, beau-ti-ful sweets which of course attract a massive crowd. I think, in today's world, the presentation matters and yes, those desserts aren't done easily at home plus yes, they are really mouth watering which everyone would really love to try. As for me, the first bites are heavenly but then who wants a huge dessert? None. We all want a small portion of sweets specially those who are in weight control and the cafe isn't for the kind. It is best to get a serve and have at least two people share it to enjoy the experience otherwise the rest will be in waste. Much as the both the desserts and drinks aren't cheap.
And considering the guilt taking in more sweets than I usually do, I decided to go to my favourite Japanese Restaurant, KOBUNE. I love the restaurant apart from the massive space and nice interior, I also love the quality of the food. And yes, the price. The restaurant despite the luxurious look is very economical and has a complimentary green tea jelly as well. I love green tea and so jellies! :)
Well that's the tenth. Sometimes I get to ask why we do EAT when we celebrate. Or if not eating, drinking. Why? We probably do for a feast and have it shared with the rest, but as I get older I think it is still festive to celebrate any special event alone as long as one is in the crowd. I just did and still got the same fun. The most important thing is there is an occasion which one recognizes as significant and paying attention to it and I mean not letting it pass through is vital. For a celebration is rejoicing and the fruit of REJOICE is JOY whatever and wherever it is. After all, it's one of those once in a lifetime moments we shouldn't miss.
