Date night #2

Crab pasta at Rider's Cafe was much better than expected. Wish we could've seen the horses, but it was too late and dark. A definite must-go for brunch some day.

Date night album

Dinner & a movie. Original Sin is now on our fav list

Even though we live together, Chris and I oddly still miss each other daily. Perhaps it's because we don't always get to spend quality time with each other.

While I'm working late, he's having dinner at home. And on days when I do get home in time for dinner, he'd be busy working away at his computer, following Pacific Std Time. More often than not, we're both just glued to screens of all kinds - the TV, our laptops, his iPod Touch and my E71. Oh, the absurdity of a 21st century relationship! As a result, we mandated date night once a week.

Now I find myself looking forward to this day throughout the work week, and that's a really nice feeling ♥

The sweetest thing

The running joke for most Americans about going home during the holidays often involves dread and Everybody Loves Raymond type scenarios. While that may be true, and sadly inevitable sometimes, it is oh so rewarding when you experience the contrary.

This time around, I was reminded how much I miss being around my super sisters. Mom and dad were traveling in Eastern Europe, leaving 3 of 4 mischievous girls behind. So to complete the mix, Chris and I made a trip back to "babysit." Though really, we were the ones who needed babysitting - lol.

Can you believe being surrounded by 4 giggly girls for a whole weekend? And would you believe I have 3 sisters??! Kinda explains a lot doesn't it? :)

Here are a few photos of the weekend. Because I'm still trying to figure out how to upload photos from our new cam without them appearing pixilated help! see the rest on FB.

Chris trying his first toasted chicken floss and jerky sandwich lined with cool cucumbers and ketchup. You're Malaysian now love!
