OK, the title actually refers to 2 separate things- one funny (hilarious, actually) and the other related to my Valentine's Day. Completely unrelated.
Now, with that disclaimer out of the way, here's what's funny. It's actually equal part funny + disturbing + embarrassing (as a Hong Kong'er).
So, on our local evening news today- with apparently not much notable going on- they showed this friggin' hilarious video of this lady who missed her flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco and threw a huge, stinking fit at the airport. Seriously, I've missed flights before, it's quite distressing, but thrashing around on the floor like a child?!
But then maybe she wants to be a YouTube sensation, which she has succeeded. A hint if you wanna become an internet superstar (don't blame me if you get detained by Homeland Security/ get tasered).
On a completely separate note, just want to wish everyone a belated Happy Valentine's Day :)
Hubby Chef Jacques of Chez Senakams has outdone himself again in throwing me a gourmet 3-course dinner. He called it a "modified surf and turf". This is what we had:
Everything was soooo good, but I was so stuffed that I had to save dessert for the next day... Yep, I was served an organic hot fudge sundae in bed for breakfast Sunday morning. What you can get away with when you're pregnant, ha!
And yes, you read it right, that's a bottle of merlot. But no, I haven't gone all euro enjoying wine during my pregnancy (wish I could but too chicken). It's a bottle of dealcoholized (?) wine. What does it taste like? Two words: STAY AWAY. That's about the only bust of our evening, should have opened that real bottle of zin and have just a teeny-tiny sip... *sigh*
As you can tell by the absence of it (or just that tiny morsel left), the meatball that Chef Jacques made from scratch was excellent. I give it 3 Michellin stars! If you wanna know his secret, here's the recipe, aptly named "Nice to Meat You" (he used all 3 kinds of meat, and even cutting it down to 1.5 lb of meat, we got something like 25 meat balls. It really could have fed an entire Familia Italiano).
Finishing up with sparkling berry lemonade and an assortment of sweet things. Still polishing these off today *burp*.
What else could I say, I love Chef Jacques ;)
