My Surprise V Gift

I didn't know I will be receiving a V gift and not especially not from him. It was indeed a sweet surprise! I was at 1 Utama this afternoon just to meet up with him (for the 1st time) to collect this beautiful gift.

Picture extracted from Patissier Journey.

The whole box was made out of chocolates. The only thing you can't eat out of this gift is the tray!

It tastes as good as it looks.

It was indeed a surprise that I won the box of chocolates from his blog. I met up with him in front of Johnny's at the old wing and he came out wearing his chef uniform carrying the chocolate gift in a cake box. Our meeting was less than a minute but I really appreciate the gift. Imagine me carrying the opened cake box (fearing that the chocolate deco will be spoilt if the box was closed) and having to walk from one end to the other. On the way, the handle of the box broke and I nearly lose the gift. But lucky, my hand was quick to save the box from falling!

They were good but would have been better if it's of darker chocolates. He uses very generous amount of gold dust but he would have done a better job if he uses a thicker gold paint to draw some lines on the chocolate ribbons. This gift coming from a 22 year old good looking pastry chef in uniform delivered to me personally is indeed an interesting encounter. Chocolates are great isn't it?!!

What a wonderful box of chocs , makes a nice V gift. I have also refrained from SM's or any other scotchs for the time being as I dont know how to stop when I get my hands on it, so its G&T or Cider (the rough stuff) for now.
Have you tried Lagavulin ? I once had too much of that - Never again !

1. Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and then when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that.

2. At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?" The other replied, "Yes I am, I married the wrong man."

3. Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is really finished.

4. Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor's degree and the woman gets her master's.

5. A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" And the father replied, "I don't know, son, I'm still paying for it."

6. Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her? Dad: That happens in most countries, son. Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late.

7. A happy marriage is a matter of give and take; the husband gives and the wife takes.

8. When a newly married man looks happy we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy - we wonder why.

9. Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbours listen.

10. After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when I married you." And the husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't notice it."

11. It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.

12. A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds: "Wife wanted". Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: "You can have mine."

13. When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

14. A perfect wife is one who helps the husband with the dishes.

15. A woman was telling her friend, "It is I who made my husband a millionaire." "And what was he before you married him." Asked the friend. The woman replied, “A multimillionaire".

16. A perfect couple are when the husband is deaf or the wife is blind.

Breadpitt: You're welcome. It's good. Catch up with you another time.

Zewt: Yeah a special 15th Feb.

Lim: Yep. I'll just say take your SM in moderation. That way, you don't need to refrain yourself.

Foongpc: It is!

Anon: I can but by the time it reaches you, it will be melted!

J Chung: You do have a lot of humour!

HB: That's why I asked him what he meant! I haven't eat the box though!

STP: Well sometimes Eskimos need to eat ice-cream too! Can't courier when I'm half way through eating the gift. if you don't mind the crumbs. haha
