Dear Food Diary:
I’m sure every bride and groom would remember their special day as “magical” – StalkerBoy and I are no exception.

Our wedding in Bali was an unforgettable celebration with our closest friends and family under a beautiful setting.

Away for wedding

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately.

Been planning a wedding from abroad while starting a new job. Hectic and stressful, I can’t wait to relax by the beach.

Will resume all eating and writing once I get back from Bali!

Happy Eating!

ISOLA Mondrian Soho: Beautiful lunch on our special day

Isola - entrance - Mondrian Soho
The only photos StalkerBoy (now StalkerHubby) will let me post of him. Our cousin Y art directed the shot.

Dear Food Diary:
March 28th was our 3rd anniversary and the day we decided to make it legal. We’ve been planning our wedding ever since the proposal. And though the real celebration won’t be until June, StalkerBoy and I decided to do City Hall first.

Afterwards, he picked this beautiful lunch spot – Isola Mondrian Soho to toast the start of our special day. One of the prettiest outdoor dining rooms I’ve seen, even on a rainy day, it looked gorgeous. The entrance was perfect for the capturing special day.

The food was good too.
