Dinner with

As a result of Nina´s prevention at my little family celebration for my diploma we went to the Columbia for dinner today. For me that meant having some fine food again, compared with my favourite fashionvictim!

Here are some impressions of our evening:

Yes, I can!

One year before I couldn´t believe that now, in this moment, I am holding my diploma in hands!
We had a nice lunch in the new local Columbia Hotel. Unfortunately the gourmet restaurant Marc O´Polo just opens for dinner, so we had to be pleased with the "Harbour View", the second, "ordinary" restaurant of the hotel:

Pasta squares filled with veal shank

Saddle of lamb with a mustard-shallots-crackling, tomatojus and pestognocchi

Dessert: Cremé bruleé with sweet woodruff

Cremé of white chocolate with raspberries

The guys are smoking way too much: "Oh honeys, we´ll just grap some fresh air.. in the Davidoff Lounge!"

My parents gave me this Ebel Classic watch: the Roman clock-face stands for my third foreign language, Latin (of course there had to be a scholastic theme in this gift), and the nacre reflects my Philippine origin on my mother´s side, and the fact that my Dad chose the watch did his bit. I love this gift so much already and can´t wait to wear it!
