don't rain on my parade  
So finishing my posts before the New Year failed terribly... have a good reason, I had a fever two days before NYE and was bedridden XP Anyhoo back on schedule...

I know I said I didnt feel like celebrating my birthday much but I ended up celebrating it over a week, Bill dubbed it "Golden Week" and even drew me a card incorporating all the things we did during the week. 

Golden Week kicked off on the Wednesday my mum took me to see Wicked The Musical again, Row D baybeee and smack bang in the middle so so good, and bought me the Soundtrack too X))

On the Thursday Bill took me to Yoshii for dinner and it was amaaaazzziinnnnng, everything was so so good. Can't wait to go back there again, definately one of my favourite restauarants. Bill had the Yoshii course and I had the Saqura course so our dishes were slightly different. Highly highly highly recommend going there, the food is simple but paired so well together and is simply stunnnninnnng.

Saqura and Yoshii Course
Kingfish Sashimi marinated Wasabi Oil
Duck Foie Gras and Kelp Seaweed "Tsukudani"
Ocean Trout wrapped Daikon with vinegar miso
Deep fried Crystal Bay Prawn mince covered with Potato
