BDay Dinners 2014 at Biff's Bistro and Bar Isabel

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday with some friends at Biff's Bistro and Bar Isabel.

We went to Biff's Bistro for Winterlicious and Biff's always has a good Winterlicious menu.  Between the four of us, we tried the pork terrine in a spring roll, kale salad, steak frites, buckwheat crepes, almond panna cotta and chocolate cake.  I find that you always get consistent food at a reasonable price at Biff's, so I don't mind going there every once in a while.

Honeymoon #3 Part 1 - Paris, Nice, Monte Carlo

I finally had the time to sit myself down and write a post about our real honeymoon to Europe in late October of 2013.  It was 2hung's first time in Europe and we visited Paris, Nice, Monte Carlo, Venice, Florence and Rome.  First, let's talk about what we did in France and Monaco.

We stayed at The Westin Vendome which was located steps from the Tuileries Metro station and maybe a 5-10 min walk to the Louvre.  I still remember stepping out of the Metro station and the feeling of awe at the sight of Paris.

Day 1:
We spent the first day in the Jardin des Tuileries, taking pictures by the pyramids at the Louvre and sightseeing on the Ile de la Cite.  Strolling through the garden was so relaxing and the surrounding buildings were so beautiful.  We enjoyed walking by or through it almost everyday that we were there.
