Anniversary Dinner @ The Mix : The surprise that got me teary eyed..

This is the continuation to our amazing 6th Anniversary Getaway courtesy of Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie. After enjoying the awesome room and splendid time splashing in the beautiful pool we got rather hungry. We hurried back to our room for a quick shower before heading to The Mix for our dinner.

The stylish and cosy interior of The Mix

We had guava and orange juice while deciding what to have for dinner. It was tough to make up our mind as all the items in the menu looks so appetizing! I ordered spaghetti for Ethan first as he ALWAYS orders pasta each time we dine out.

Spaghetti Arabiata style with olives and tomatoes (RM35)

The original menu is spaghetti Arabiata style with chilies, olives and tomatoes but we requested for them to omit the chilies as Ethan doesn’t take spicy food. Look at the generous amount of cheese sprinkled on the spaghetti. I’m sure Ethan will love this!

As usual when we dine out, Darling will be the ‘Quality Control’. He’ll have the first bite to taste if the dish is too spicy, peppery or anything not suitable for Ethan’s consumption. Ethan was waiting anxiously! Not only did Daddy give the GREEN light, he even gave the thumbs up!

Ethan finally getting mouthful of the delicious spaghetti. He loves the bite size chicken meat that is so tender and moist.

Oyster, Leek and Potato Soup (RM25)

Darling opt for the oyster, leek and potato soup before having his main course. This cream of leek and potato soup with poached oysters is blended till it is velvety smooth. The leek and potato makes a perfect combination giving this dish a very ‘homey’ feel. Both Darling and I agreed that the soup is so wholesome that we really don’t mind having it without the oyster but then again, if it is prepared without the oyster in the first place, it would have taste a whole lot of different won’t it? :D

Seafood Tom Yam (RM30)

I had Seafood Tomyam! I know! I laughed when Darling suggested for me to have this. I was like, “What?” Here I am at a very chick and elegant place and he suggested that! Nevertheless, I agree as the thought of having something spicy on a rather cold evening is too hard to resist.

And thank goodness for Darling’s suggestion as this hot and sour broth is spectacular! We were given the option to choose the level of spiciness from medium to HIGH. We chose medium as I dare not risk having an upset tummy for our romantic rendezvous later :P

Atlantic Salmon (RM48)

Darling’s main course, the Atlantic Salmon. Ooh, love this, love this, LOVE this! Marinated with herbs and secret ingredient this thick slab of salmon comes with garlic mashed potatoes and creamy mixed vegetables. Portion is really huge!

Seafood Paupiette (RM45)

I had the seafood paupiette. It was served all wrapped up in aluminium foil and looked so simple. I tore the foil and to my surprise, out came a hidden treasure! Fresh seafood, plump mussels and huge succulent prawns with pasta enough to feed TWO! I enjoyed this a lot and if you think Ethan is filled to the brim with his spaghetti you are wrong as he still has space in his little stomach to share MY pasta!

Ethan took this shot of Darling and I :D

ZYNCHRO, a super talented 7-piece band entertained the crowd that night. They are really good! We were enjoying our dessert while being serenaded by them and then.. they STOPPED!

What happened? They looked our way and announced a special dedication to “Mr and Mrs William who are celebrating their Anniversary tonight”. I was like… aww… heart skipped a beat!

Just as my heart starts beating again, Mr Suresh, The Mix Manager appeared with a cake!

OMG! This is seriously a sweet surprise! FIRST TIME in my life okay? By now The Mix is enjoying a full house crowd. They cheered for us. Everything stood still. All eyes were set on us. I was so stunned that I did not know what to do *except to quickly take a shot of Mr Suresh and the cake!* ^_^

Darling and I were so stoned we did not know what to do! Thank goodness Ethan was quick! He thought it is a special day for HIM! He quickly blew the flame off the candle and the crowd cheered again! I was blushing like a tomato by now..

Ethan proceeded to cut the cake and everyone clapped their hands. Ethan was beaming so brightly and asked Darling, why only ONE candle? LoL! He thought it was HIS Birthday!! -__-

ZYNCHRO then performed George Benson’s Nothing Gonna Change My Love For You and dedicated that song to us. I was so touched there were tears in my eyes..

That song has always been our favourite and now it will forever be special to Darling and I…

#If the road ahead is not so easy
Our love will lead the way for us like a guiding star
I’ll be there for you if you should need me
You don’t have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are#

What a way to end our dinner. We were like floating in the air after that pleasant surprise…

Oh by the way, these are what we were having before Zynchro ‘interrupted’ us.. :)

Banana Toffee Pudding

Love the banana pudding. Soft and moist it just melts in my mouth. Paired with ice-cream this could not be anymore perfect!

Carrot Cake

Darling loves the carrot cake. I love the carrot cake. Ethan loves the carrot cake! Conclusion is we ALL love the carrot cake!

Our family picture (after wiping away tears and smudged mascara) on a perfect and memorable evening :)

Darling and I love the ambiance and atmosphere here at The Mix. Ethan loves it too! Gosh, he is starting young isn’t he? Hehe..

Look who’s enjoying himself dancing the night away? :D

Thank you Mr Suresh, The Mix, Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie and the ever so lovely Sagina for making tonight a night we’ll remember and cherish forever!
