Ristorante Italiano~

Last weekend, I was having a sisters night out with both of my sisters. We went to this humble Italian restaurant in Kemang called Toscana. It was a very decent place, both the food and the atmosphere, with reasonable prices. I love the ambiance there, having a Sunday dinner with my loved ones. It was cozy and homy. You can tell that the house is old but they have renovated it so it's very decent.The food there is totally awesomeeeee..

I got an epiphany while I was eating there.. Here it goes..

I am much more closer to my bigger sister and sometimes I get annoyed easily with my little sister. In my mind, she will always be a little girl who has the power of the what-so-called "Mom's Protection". Whenever I got annoyed, I just tend to ignore her, be silent and leave the room. This has been interpreted that she is immune to my authority as an older sister or whatsoever she wants to interpret it as. On a normal basis, yes I do love her but when we are caught up in a "situation", Oh God! I wish she could be struck by a lightning. Okay that was a psychotic metaphor.  In other words, I will always see her as an elementary student, not mattering the fact that she's now in high school.

When we were there, laughing at silly stuffs, sharing stories, I realized that there are just too many beautiful things to be mad at this world. I've never felt so blessed. I consider myself happy at that moment. Really, we are nothing without our loved ones in this world. And it's great to know that they love us just as sincere. And  it came to me. She love me as much as I love her.. I don't know it's because of the place, the food, or we're just high on sugar.. But I'm glad it striked me.

Proof that my little sister still love me the way I love her : she ordered the mushroom risotto that I love, cherish ohhhh so much, she was willing to trade her dish with mine cause I asked for it.. See.. Love..

I always thought that she's more egoistic and put very little care towards other's interest. Maybe I was WRONG, maybe she's growing up, but my vision is just blocked by her little sister image.. (FYI, after I finished typing that last sentence, it literally starts to rain and raindrops are all over my room's windows in front of me. Is this so a drama movie or whatttttt)

Okay enough foolish talking, PICTURE TIMEEEE

I was trying this app on my Samsung note, it's called action snap.. The lightning on the place that we sat is very little, so here are the results.. 

Moving on to the food..

Free Fresh Homemade breads, with garlic cream and balsamic vinegar with olive oil.. Always a catch, especially when you're starving and the food hasn't been served yet..

We're trying to be healthy so this is our appetizer, a Caesar Salad

I ordered this Fettuccine Parmigiana. The pasta there are all HOMEMADE PASTAS. You can definitely taste the difference between instant and homemade pastas. The texture especially. The meatballs are chicken and it tastes really good! 

This was what my big sis ordered, it was Dipolpette. Basically, it was eggplant in a form of a lasagna. It was very nice as well

Maybe I'm crazy about  mushroom risottos. But mother of dear God, this is goodddd.. Yes it looked mundane, but I wouldn't left a single bit of that risotto on the plate..

This is a hot chocolate cake, Fondente Gelato, a bit like molten cake. The insides are gooey and warm.. Nyummy 

They say they have the best tiramisu, and yes, they do.. We were so full, but we couldn't help scooping out creamy tiramisu till it's totally finished..

This place is a definite 'must-go-back-and-eat-more-food' restaurant. The service is excellent, with a fine dining touch.. They even put individual napkins on your lap, and we are served with free iced lemon water.. The price is pretty cheap, I say.. Yep, definitely must go back to this place..
