selfish bitch still

yesterday, i was keen on going to this uber cool party. today however, i didn't feel like it. so april called guy bestfriend (imma call him B from now on as i know you'll be reading a lot about him on the next couple of posts) to ask if he wanted to join. he said yes of course but added he might bring someone along. ding ding ding! that was the clincher.

so we ditched the party and went out with another friend instead. food is always better when one is a wee bit sad anyway and since we have yet to check out Greenbelt 5, we opted to have dinner there. italian food was the choice of the night so off we went to Cibo.

here's what we ordered:
patê di fegato - chicken liver pate dip with apple & pear fruit jam served with toast rounds;
Linguine Al Nero Di Seppia - squid ink pasta served with squid, anchovy and capers. this was really good but you might wanna skip this one if you're on a date

Penne 'il Magnifico - penne pasta with gorgonzola, porcini mushrooms and cream. if you love blue cheese, this is the best pasta for you. i was, however, disappointed that the mushrooms were way too small
Penne All 'Ortolana - grilled vegetables, anchovy, olives and sun-dried tomato with a lil bit of extra virgin olive oil. this one's my favorite. a guilt-free pasta best for vegetarians and chronic diet freaks

Prosciutto di Parma - pizza topped with parma ham, mozzarella, stewed potato and arugula leaves. if you like salty, this is the way to go. i personally didn't like this though
Red Grape Shake - this made my day. best grape shake by far. i'd go back if only for this.

one thing i really loved about Cibo was the service. the waiters were all nice and the orders came faster than we expected. oh and the seats were uber comfy! would've been better though if there were tables outside (read: a place where i can smoke)

after dinner we met up with a few more friends and had a few cocktails at NSG where the blue margarita that i ordered totally sucked. it was way too sweet deng it!

it was a good thing i ditched the party. i was in no mood to dance and get jiggy anyway.

i'm off to bed now sweeties. night night!
