Merry Blessed Christmas!

How's your Christmas going? 

I'm a little exhausted, to be honest. I got home this morning at 2:15am, showered and went straight to bed. I now know my body isn't as strong as it used to be, when I could hold up till the early mornings even after a party! I also think the people at the LPAB are sadistic, for setting assignment deadlines during the first 2 weeks of January. Poo poo!

My first maxi dress! Got this at Esprit, my all-time fav store.

No guesses where I got this summer dress from! Wore this for Anne's Christmas Eve party last night.

Thanks to Spreets, we found ourselves dining out at Kobe Jones in Docklands for $54 each on Thursday.

 Seafood Poke (Hawaiian style sashimi cubes marinated in poke sauce), Oyster Shooter (in mango fused sake), Volcano Roll (oven baked scallops layered on a crab salad and avocado roll, with their special cream sauce and a sesame seed and shallot sprinkle).

LollyPop Sushi
Tuna, kingfish, salmon, crab salad, asparagus and smelt roe, wrapped in thinly peeled cucumber with soy sauce vinaigrette

 Miso Citrus Lobster Tail
Grilled green lobster tail served in a miso citrus sauce on a bed of steamed vegetables and wafu thermidor sauce

Taking in the night view from our table. That's the West Gate Bridge in the distance. I used to drive up there to get to the airport, but now I take the non-tolled route.

Wagyu Hot Rock
Self-cook your wagyu just the way you like it, served with seasoning and two dipping sauces

Ama Ozen
Kobe Jones’s famous selection of dessert samplers with their trademark chocolate chopsticks

We definitely had a very nice night! Kobe Jones served up an unexpectedly delightful variety of Japanese fusion dishes, but the ladies were riled up at the sub-standards of the desserts. I personally didn't care about the desserts too much, as long as the main dishes lived up to my palette. Hee.
