La Vie En Rose

19 Jan

A while ago we were listening to radio and this DJ asked this guy, what has changed in your relationship since dating/getting married.

Immediately I yelled….bugger you hardly take me out to nice dinner thesedays. All we ever do is use the vouchers I buy you bloody cheapskate!

Almost felt sorry for my husband’s ears that day coz out came a bunch of other list. Heh.

So as I was attempting to plan out our Friday he coyly mentioned that he was taking me out to dinner.

See ladies, men always say we nag, but nagging gets things done. True story, tried and tested :D

Instinctively I had a rough idea where were already going coz I mentioned to him once about this new french restaurant that opened near my office.

Check out me Victorian style ring, me likey!

The interior of La Vie En Rose, which is located in Jalan Raja Chulan

Instintively I also had a bad feeling of them not having a baby chair. And true enough, they didn’t! I was quite annoyed. But I dont’ blame them, whoever takes a baby for fine-dining anyways? This will be probably Sairah’s first and last until she’s a bit older coz let me tell you it’s not easy! Gonna stick to normal restaurants coz she behaves so well there. Well maybe she does coz they actually HAVE a baby chair :)

A good baby for now….good thing we brought her stroller though she only used it for a good 10 minutes.

The menu….pretty pricey. And food selection is pretty limited. I want BIG soft fluffy french style crossaint on the menu. As main course!!

You can almost tell he’s regretting bringing his wife here after seeing the menu. If we choose to leave now the bitch wife will nag, haha. Yea I can read his thoughts!

But too late! We’re here! With one naughty kid in tow. Ah yes, she was her naughtiest that day.  Refused to sit, refused to eat, refused to let us eat…….all she wanted to do was walk walk walk and fml, I forgot her shoes! And if we didn’t let her walk she’d SCREAM! I felt sorry for the other diners who were trying to get some romantic time, haha. Almost wanted to tell them also to enjoy every minute of it coz once a kid comes…….they can kiss that good bye, hehe.

Happy shot before the naughtiness begins….you can already see it on her face how she’s planning out some epic misbehaving…

We were given a serving of warm bread which was pretty good and with what you call a shot of julienned carrots with a dollop of cream. Ooo julienned I feel so posh, lol.

Had a simple salad while we waited for the main course. The salad was pretty divine. The cheese portion was very generous.

And that’s when it started……..the naughtiness! Her father had to walk her around the restaurant in her socks while I sat there eating my salad ALONE. We were lucky they were only 3-4 occupied tables.

Mommy tried to distract her by letting her rummage through her bag.

Mom, you lied, there’s no chocolate in there! Did YOU eat it all?

After a while she got bored with the bag so mommy had to distract her with a bangle or whatever random object she could find.  At this point of time I was praying that our main course would arrive pronto.

Oh but it did not. So I did the next best thing I could do – turn the camera screen in front of us and cam-whored! Which lasted about a good 10 minutes.

Nobody messes with my mommie. Word.

Okay I lied, haha, I’m no gangsta. Just naughty.

Pouty pouty pouty…

:p Yes I’m a bad influence to her :D

I was almost certain I ordered the chicken with cream sauce but got the coq au vin instead. But no worries, chicken with red wine – I can eat this. The chicken itself was soft and moist but the sauce was a bit too over-whelming. Hats off to the wonderful mashed potato with truffles though!! It was totally out of this world. Even the naughty kid approved. I would go back for this!

Hubby’s lamb shank which he claims had alot of fats. But still okie.

We didn’t even stop to have dessert. Coz I wanted a shake from Milkshake Factory, yums :lol:

A little more naughtiness before we leave.

Misbehaving in a fine dining restaurant……….yup, that’s my girl right there! Again to all diners who were dining there on Friday – we’re SOOOO SOOO sorry :D

I”m so fabulously naughtyyyyy.

Hmpff, guess that means hubby has a fine reason not taking me out somewhere nice. But no worries, I’ll make sure any new restaurant will do :eek: for now.

Total bill was RM184 inclusive of a beer and apple juice.

Baby terrorizing people on a fine night out: PRICELESS.

Would we return again? Probably not. One time experience here is enough :D

      Glad to be of LOL service :) I guess this happens everywhere. Tell me about it la, took her to this simple pan mee restaurant a day later and guess what, BESTEST BEST behavior! Sat quietly in her baby chair, was waving and being friendly to the waiters, quietly ate her pan mee, geez. It’s like take to nice place = bad behavior, take to simple place = best behavior, lol, kids!

    Aww, Sairah and you are so cute. Did you hear Lara Dutta named her daughter Saira too? But minus the ‘h’. So Sairah has a namesake now :)

    I am so intrigued by these new restaurants in KL these days. It’s amazing how much variety there is now. Not that there wasn’t enough to begin with. Ohhh, so jelly here…and hungry as well.

    • TheMissusBlogs 24. Jan, 2012 at 11:11 am #

      Haha thanks! I read somewhere she was pregnant but didn’t know she already gave birth. Haha well what can I say, Saira/h is an awesome name, actually Saira is more common and the spelling most people prefer.

      Trust me, I live here and yet I am intrigued as well. SOOOO many restaurants to try, so little time and money, hehe. this is one good blog to follow- but i do warn you, you’ll be super jelly and hungry when you’re done with it :p

        ..must not click on that link..must not click on that link.

        Sigh :( It’s -8 C today, expected to go to -16 C. Food is the only thing on my mind. If you don’t hear from me, in the next few days, it’s because I froze into a statue in the city and am waiting for Spring to thaw me :)

          But you must…you must! Call it research for your next trip to Malaysia. I am seriously at awe at how he’s able to find all these restaurants, I’ve not even heard of most of it!

          LOL. You’re too funny! Wow it’s that cold? Load up on some hot chocolate, that oughta make you feel better.

    This is hilarious. Poor u. It’s ok. You have Sairah.

      Thanks, hope it entertained you. Notty Sairah :p

    Hullo, love your food reviews. However, one point though – please let your readers know that fine dining is not a place to bring a baby, it’s very disruptive. I understand it’s hard to leave a baby but perhaps you can get a sitter?

    • TheMissusBlogs 22. Jul, 2013 at 10:22 am #

      Hi Jagd, thanks. Well I guess it’s up to them to decide on that. Some kids are well behaved, and some go through notty days, haha. Sairah thankfully is okay going out to nicer restaurants these days…just a few weeks go we went to Nero Vivo and she was the only kid there but very well behaved. Sometimes we don’t have a choice coz there are no baby sitters available easily so the next best thing to do is take them along and just pray that they behave :)
