Food Bloggers (3rd) Annual Dinner at Le Papillon

It was a huge success! The largest turn-out (31) thus far. Thanks to June, for all the hard work and agony from organising it. It was a really wonderful evening of comradship over food, an essential of life and so basic, but is exactly what puts all 31 of us on common ground.

We started the evening with delicious, warm bread rolls, accompanied by florettes of whipped butter, while waiting for a couple of eventual "no-shows". A hungry blogger is an angry blogger.

It was followed quickly by an amuse bouche - Chef's signature watermelon with feta cheese and basil.

Thereafter, course after course of delicious things, dotted with 2 lucky draw moments, accompanied with excellent service from the (stressed-out) staff topping up the glasses with sponsored Fiji water and wine - a red, a white, and a dessert.

I have a hard time deciding what course I enjoyed the most - they were all excellent. Chef even brilliantly incorporated Fiji water to make his soup course! And as usual, his crustacean oil pasta was very wanting - I sure could do with another 5 pieces!

Alas, Le Papillon seems to have remained under the radar despite the consistently good food. If not for its location, you would find me there more often, probably busy with the set lunch from a menu that change weekly and is reasonably priced ($29). I sure hope Le Papillon is here to stay!

[Chef Anderson, if you are reading this, thanks for making accomodations for my pescetarian diet! The grilled avocado with goat's cheese and nuts was really a surprise but nonetheless, delicious!]

Each of us received a gift bag comprising of a bottle of Fiji water, discount vouchers from Razorsharp, Cellar Door and Cathay Photo. Because Chef Anderson is nice, he managed to hook us up with Premier, who sponsored tea bags for all to try.

I was lucky this year, and walked away with a Mario Batali cast iron 10" saute pan from the lucky draw. I wonder what I would do with it. It is darn heavy!

Anyway, I am already looking forward to the next dinner. As I was feeling a little under the weather, I did not mingle as much as I wanted to. Oh well, until next year - watch out for it over at Colin's!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
