The birthday boy


Couple of weeks ago was my ever loving... ever caring... ever sexy ;)... ever sweet... etc etc... boyfriend. So, to celebrate his special day, we've decided to book same day off work together so we can spend the whole day with each other. It was a lovely day and we had a great fun and here I am sharing you our day with you guys :)

FIRST STOP: BELLA ITALIA (Probably our favourite Italian restaurant)

The starter we shared

My boyfriend's main course

My main course... Chicken sandwish with chips and salad garnish. It was massive and I've only managed one sandwich.

Hot chocolate with vanilla cream and cinnamon powder... Massive! I could've swam on it :P

A selection of books for a typical shopaholic ;)

I'm currently reading this book :P
NEXT STOP: A SCARY STOP! I suppose it's not very unusual for a couple who are inlove (here's the sick bucket!) to think about future and it's funny that we tend to stop outside this shop everytime we see new displays.

When I saw this dress, I said to my boyfriend... 'Honey! This is my dress!'... He gave me a sweet smile :)

We stood infront of this window holding each other :)

I thought this was cute!

These too!

This film honestly freaked me out that I had to ask my boyfriend to stop at my place as I just knew that it'll give me nightmares. Call me chicken, I don't care :P
So, have just celebrated a special occasion as a couple recently? C'mon... share it with us :)

hmn, i hope The Happening is really freaky lol. Lady in Water didn't really scared me. :-/

i don't want to comment on the dress 'cause my church wedding has been postponed for like i dunno how many times... haha. but i hope you get to wear yours soon! :D

Gracie said...

Sis, Nikki! Thank you! Ha ha ha! It's quite funny when we walk around town as we always look at wedding stuff... I don't know why...

On my birthday last year, after our lunch in a Japanese restaurant (Wagamama), Neil said to me... 'What do you want to do next honey?'... I replied... 'I don't know! What have you got in mind?'... Then he said... 'Let's go and look for your ring!'... and we burst in laughter ha ha ha! You know what happened next? We did! We really looked at engagement rings ha ha ha!

Sis, Mhean! Good thing about the relationship between me and my boyfriend is we're able to laugh at things but he's a kind of person who won't say anything he doesn't mean. It took him about 3 weeks to say the sweet 3 words!

We've got other things to sort out first before wedding but that would be before I'm 40 (Gosh, when Carrie and Mr. Big was talking about wedding on SATC, Neil gave me that cheezy grin as if to say.. 'that's you!'. I've always told him that I'm not wearing my wedding gown and wrinkles at the say time so he's got a few years to prepare himself ha ha ha!

Askmewhats said...

but did you guys managed to buy one? the engagement ring??? aawww...that's sweet!

Have you found a nice ring?

Gracie said...

Oh, no! We're still looking for the perfect one. However, the proud person that I am (I'm not used to people buying me things without giving the favour in return... so... *whisper... I'm planning... Since he wants a Rolex watch... If he buys me a ring... I'll get him Rolex watch. How does that sound?

Askmewhats said...

Why are you typing this here??? What if he reads your blog??? that wont' be a secret anymore!!! but that's a great idea!!!! but not like right after he gave you a ring!!!! he would think it's an exchange gift or something!

Why not..well after he buys you the ring..and proposed buy him a rolex watch and propose to him too! that will be soo cool and I want to see it in video!

Gracie said...

Ha ha ha! That's funny! Oh, that's okay... there are no secrets between boyfriend and I. Ha ha ha! I'd rather give him something he wants than guess that could end up in total disaster ha ha ha!

Askmewhats said...

well since there's no secret between you and him..tell him "you want to Rolex watch? buy me the ring NOW" lol

Gracie said...

Ha ha ha! What happened to the modest pinay that I am ha ha ha! One thing I'd never do... ask someone to do things for me. If he ask, it's great... if not... it's time to move on! Oh gosh! I should've not said that as he might read this... but never mind ha ha ha!

Askmewhats said...

I know you're not the type who would ask! But yeah, you have to be careful in what you're typing! you could probably see the ring any moment! LOL

Gracie said...

Ha ha ha! That's fine... honestly ha ha ha! I don't like nasty surprises myself. I'd like to know exactly where I am... Did I just hear someone saying... CONTROL FREAK! Ha ha ha!

Askmewhats said...

*looks around* Definitely not me...*points finger*....

Gracie said...

Ha ha ha! I'm soooo excited about meeting you eventually. I'm sure we'll have great fun. Have a great weekend sis :)... Don't shop too much! You buy new stuff every week ha ha ha!

Askmewhats said...

HEY!!! look who's talking!!! lol I don't buy stuffs every week no!

Can't wait to see have a great weekend!
