Last night we treated ourselves to a posh dinner at Frangipani's. I haven't been for over a year and we were heading to BB for drinks with friends later in the evening anyway.

Still a really sexy looking place, they have a new menu and it was very elaborate. Each item on the menu had a mini paragraph description.

The tasting menu looked tempting but I didn't think I eat so much, but I have a good mind to try it next time.

Instead we had to start :-

Deep fried spice dusted soft shell crab with white bouillabaisse
sauce, tomato reduction, chickpea aïoli and saffron foam

Hickory smoked anchovies with cream cheese and lemon butter
sauce on a grilled organic rye and molasses toast

And the mains we had the lamb which was divine and I had the duck with crackling equally yum.

After dinner, we strolled over Ceylon Bar. It's a really chilled out kinda place and they show sports there too, last night it was the Ashes. Very backpacker and cheap beers.

We were saying a final goodbye to Pat Fama. He used to work in AJ and quit about 1 year ago. Since then, he has been travelling around Asia and he was now heading back to the UK for good.

Lots of people turned up for the leaving drinks, it was fun to catch up and when Sue and gang turned up, we were persuaded to pile into Frangi's for bit of dancing.

I really should fix my camera so I can start taking photos for keepsakes. Anyway, Frangi's was packed and the music was pretty good. Saturday not gay nights so there were some eye candy.

I am now sitting on my couch quite hungover. Should have lunch but so lazy.
