Buono Pizza Bar and Italian Restaurant

FINALLY there is a half-decent Italian restaurant close to my home. Despite the proximity, somehow I just never got around to Buono until last week, when I suggested the family go there to celebrate my birthday with a meal.

The restaurant is located in the corner of a row of old shophouses, in the midst of landed property. It was very down-to-earth restaurant, with warm, red hues of colors and rustic wooden furniture making up the interior. We decided to start off with a 4-mushroom pizza ($19) to share.

The pizza was delicious. The crust was good - good thickness and a good balance between crunch and chew. The toppings were plentiful - both cheese and the assorted mushrooms. This was one enjoyable pizza and nothing I would complain about.

For the main course, the ravioli with crab meat ($22) sounded good and came recommended. Hmmm, the ravioli skin was a little thick and the crab meat, while impressive because it was substantial and came in chunky bits, was dry. The tomato sauce was enriched with some cream though it was not heavy, fortunately. It was thick and robust enough to coat the pillows well but I wished the taste could be just a little more savoury as it was borderline sweet.

We decided to share a few desserts. The tartufo gelato dessert that sounded super-yums ran out so we ended up with the requisite tiramisu ($8), warm molten chocolate cake ($10) and a berry pannacotta ($8).

The tiramisu was okay, if you get pass the top layer of whipped cream. The sponge fingers were moist and the mascarpone cheese thick and luscious. It was a little sweet for me and I would use a little bit more kahlua to add a stronger coffee flavour and more alcohol kick.

The warm chocolate cake passed the molten, eruptive lava test with flying colors. Unfortunately, the chocolate sauce within tasted weak and probably not of the best quality so it was rather disappointing in taste. It did not help that the accompanying ice cream was some french vanilla flavour (I think) that just did not meld together with chocolate.

Forget the berry pannacotta if you abhor artificial flavourings. It reminded me of the grape flavour Bubble Yum chewing gum. The mother almost threw up, but the father relished it. Well, it tells you that taste is subjective.

With such good prices and decent food, I should find myself back at Buono more often.

Towards Weaning.

Since my last post, I have tried to implement a few changes to make things better.  For one, I have decided to stop feeling so stressed about pumping enough milk for A.  Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, after 9 months of pumping without mastitis (blocked ducts yes, mastitis no), I suffered not 1 but 2 episodes of mastitis over 2 consecutive weeks, right boob then left. The supply tanked after the first episode and I decided to take the opportunity to slow things down and gradually wean.  Even though the mental determination was there, it was still affecting me psychologically. I mean, after going through the first few months of suffering through the 3-hourly pumping schedule and building up a decent supply, and then reaching a nice maintenance mode where pumping became easier and a way of life for me, it was hard to let go.

Nonetheless, after the second round, and the supply continued to tank, I thought enough is enough.  Final straw was when the Spectra …

The Wedding Gowns

The Man and I tied the knot on 1.3.14, a popular date because of the homonym when read in Chinese: 一生一世, which literally means, a lifetime, if I am not wrong. Anyway, just for the record, we didn't select the date because of that reason, but on hindsight, it made a very nice coincidence and we won't easily forget our wedding anniversary I suppose. When we got engaged, we went researching for the wedding banquet venue right away (more on that later), and then followed by the wedding gown.  After consulting a few recent brides,  unsolicited input from others, and research on bridal forums, I decided I would like to go ala carte. I also eliminated the Tanjong Pagar bridal studios because I admit I am biased and my mind conjures up an imagery of a typical Tanjong Pagar bride that is wearing a tiara, white gloves, a big poofy ballgown and lots of bling.  I shudder uncontrollably at that thought before and even now that the wedding is over.
Eventually, I visited the following few and…

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…
