6 Jan 2014 is a very special date for me and for The Girlfriend. It marked the two years where we got together to enjoy dim sum and tea appreciation (See Yum Cha Dim Sum (飲茶點心)), and it was there that I confessed my love to her (See Prologue to the Relationship).

Today, The Girlfriend and I decided to enjoy a slow and leisurely, yet very indulgent brunch (breakfast plus lunch).

A few days ago, The Girlfriend and I celebrated our eighteenth mensiversary (month-anniversary). We’ve survived 18 months together! Yay! 18 months is quite a significant period of time!

The Girlfriend fell sick yesterday. She had a really bad case of diarrhea, possibly due to food poisoning. What’s really amazing about her was that even though she was really sick, she made it a point to accompany me yesterday for my prize presentation ceremony (I won two awards!). I was very touched! I would rather have her stay at home …

Breakfast Delight!

Sometime back in May, The Girlfriend came by to my house early in the morning. She had woken up really really early in the morning to give her mother a lift to the airport.
