2009.10.29 Baby Bloom & Balinesse Food

Seems like my blog post will get more and more new topics each day
I'm not sure if this is too early to announce,
but seems like most of my friends knew it already,
so...I'm thinking, why don't i share it with my lovely readers as well ;))

I'm Pregnant!! ;D
on my 9th weeks now a.k.a 2 months and counting
still on the first trimester

as most of normal preggers, I'm craving for a particular type of food,
and alas! I've been craving for BALINESE FOOD!!!
yes, we do have Indonesian restaurant in Seattle, but they don't sell Balinese food that i like,
oh how i miss my hometown!!
so, I basically lost appetite on anything, but keep thinking of the Balinese food =((
frustrated with the situation,
i end up browsing for recipes online and experimenting on my little kitchen,

so far, i had made 2 authentic Balinese dishes and so proud of myself!! ;D
they are the home-style-cooking type of food that mostly won't be available on restaurant,
here's they are

Be Sisit (Shredded beef with Balinese Spices)
Ayam Suir Sambel Matah (Shredded Chicken with Shallot & Chilli)

do you craving for anything during your pregnancy?
share the story with me ;))

while taking a break from my honeymoon post,
i'll bog about the recent dinner with friends ;))
actually, his birthday was on October 5th, but since it was Monday,
we postponed the birthday dinner until Saturday

hubby and I went for lunch at Fulin, China Town,
the tonkatsu charsew ramen was awesome!
the broth was rich and tasty, and we got tons of meat (we asked for extra meat)
definitely try this one if you visit Seattle
the dinner was held at Romano's Mcaroni Grill at Northgate Mall,
they put on white paper sheet on table, so the guest can doodle while waiting for the food
my lovely Joysha drawing her own utensil ;D
the bread was truly amazing, i couldn't stop eating it!!
and off course i always love the olives ;))
olive oil + vinaigrette + black pepper = awesome dip
my bridesmaid, Vanessa
the lovely fellow food lover, Russel & Joysha
the lovers
Lobster Spaghetti
traditional Spaghetti & Meatballs
Vanessa got the biggest plate!!
Pork chop & mushroom risotto
Joysha's Pasta Milano was awesome!! i wish that i ordered that instead ;p
Ali brought this awesome Shirayuki Sake for the birthday boy
i feel really bad that i was TOTALLY FORGOT to ordered hubby's birthday cake!!!! (i blame to the crazy hormone) and Chi Ju came to the rescue with this awesome tiramizu ;))
hubby was so sad that i forgot his cake, then he get drunk..............kidding!!
hahaha...he was so cool about that, it was so unfair because he got me a fabulous bday cake earlier this year ;p
