Celebrating our belated anniversary

Missus and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on 15 Sep at North Border Bar & Grill in Rochester Park.

Now I am very impressed with the exclusive colonial houses-turned-restaurants with lush green, rustic environment (we are suckers for those black-and-white houses). The ambiance was fantastic with elegant heritage-typed infrastructure, tree-lined pathways and swaying canopies; the air was cool after a nice shower in the late evening.

We had buffulo-wings for appetizers, a seafood platter and the pork ribs. We called for a bottle of sparkling wine - Rustico too.

The wings were excellent, though the seafood and ribs were so-so. The waiter Stefan was very pleasant and hospitable, making us feel at ease with him.

Selene had too much of a drink and the stomach decided that the food didn't fit in there. She threw all up, except for the bufflo wings. How she knew what came out beats me. Anyway, I didn't bother to check the contents of the plastic bag.

Here is my rating:
Ambiance: 8.5/10
Food: 6/10
Service: 8/10

Overall, it was a pretty nice evening and anniversary. This was in spite of a petty argument we had in the car on the way there.

After 7 years, we still have disagreements. Someone told me to enjoy the differences in the relationship. It is the differences that makes it tick; not the similarities.

All is forgotten - tiff and disagreements. The ambiance just took our breaths away.
