Macarons from Paris, France

Actually, these macarons hail from Laduree in New York, New York – apparently the storefront has macarons shipped from Paris, France every two days (it must be good, right!?).

..and finally into mason jams!

Extracting honey is no easy task, it took several hours because there was a lot of waiting to be done (had to filter it 3 times and honey drips extremely slow during the fall season). But boy, it was worth it to have such yummy honey spread on my homemade bread for breakfast! I love fresh honey, it is delicious!

a happy anniversary celebration lunch

On Sunday November 25, 2012, Mr. Best Boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary – it was a very¬†relaxing day. It started off with a homemade lunch, courtesy of Mr. Best Boyfriend; he plated¬†homemade brisket, brussel sprouts, and Stouffers macaroni and cheese. It was a delicious¬†meal.¬†Thank you Mr. Best Boyfriend. He said: “I will never make food that requires a total cook¬†time of 4 hours anymore!” We then proceeded to frolic at Golden Gate Park and the Marina Greens with a kite and bubbles. We ended the night eating at a restaurant I have been dying to try: Woodhouse Fish Company (it was delicious; light and clean).

Happy Anniversary Mr. Best Boyfriend.

Exploring a different side of the city: Wicked Grounds, The Spot Lounge, E.T.C Dessert House

Wicked Grounds¬†is San Francisco’s first and only kink cafe and boutique (or so it claims on it’s website) and Sunday was the monthly “Bring you Human Animal Night“, which was the main reason why we decided to go the Wicked Grounds. We ended up not seeing any human animals but it wasn’t a bust. We had “Princess Parking” and board games to fulfill our disappointment, but one things that did disappoint my friend was their iced coffee with vanilla flavoring.

We played Candy Land and Life.

We played our own version of Life, seeing as we did not read the instructions, we were all in terrible debt because of not following the game. The instructions was printed on the cover on the box, but we didn’t notice it until we finished the game.

Being a naughty one, one of them wanted to play Pornopoly, but we opted for Life instead because none of wanted to play Monopoly.

Nothing screams more kinky than Candy Land and Life!

After Wicked Grounds, we headed to The Spot Lounge and overindulged with a kimchi fried rice for each of us (none of us finished and we ended up all taking it to-go), we could have shared one kimchi fried rice. We also ordered kimchi pancake and guava soju (delicious, tastes just like juice). After indulging in savory food, we decided to one up ourselves with dessert.

   

Honey brick toast, delicious!
Warning: if you go to E.T.C Dessert House, pee at home first! The bathroom is not located in the cafe, but rather up some scary dark stairs!

Three places in four hours, we are just way too good!

p.s That night I helped my housemate pre-order the Disney Villain Designer Collection. They are just beautifully made, there’s also a Disney Princess Designer Collection counterpart.
