Candlelit Dinner

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day, I know I did :)

Hubby came home early from work last night, it was a nice surprise although he forgot to buy me a flower which wasn't a big issue for me as he had to pick his dad from the hospital after his dad had a prostate surgery (praise God). His Dad is fine now and back to his chirpy usual self, we're going to visit him at his house later this evening and I have some valentine cookies that I baked on Friday to give him and my mother in law later :)

I settled for a box of chocolates that he gave me on Saturday which we shared last night as well as a few of my baked cookies after we had our dinner which was Singapore Laksa (prawn noodle curry) :).

We shared our food with the cat who came by as usual to our home, I will tell you more in another post about her, complete with photos, she's adorable :)

What better ways to have chocolates and cookies with tea? well it's coffee for my husband and tea for me and since this blog is about tea and I joined tea tuesday, I only took pictures of the teacup I used last night. The pink teacup and the saucer are from Handgemalt it says underneath "Leander 1946" China of Boheme, Handgemalt, 14 karats gold (which I assume for the edging). Sorry for the poor low light on the photos as we were having candlelit dinner so the light wasn't so bright :)

I thank the Lord for giving me a lovely and patience husband who cherish me and takes care of me and I thank the Lord for the lovely evening that we spent it talking, joking even singing to the song ("She" Ost of Notting Hill) that we played on the vcd player while we're having dinner, and for the stolen kisses we shared, I hope we will always be together and stay in love.

  1. Hello Miss Tea, Looks like a romantic dinner for two! I think your photos by candlelight are just lovely. The lighting is so very soft. I am looking forward to exploring more of your tea blog and to hearing about your cat. Have a wonderful day!
    Blessings, Beth

  2. Hi Susan, Thanks for coming to visit and leaving sweet comments on my blog. You asked about the CSN giveaway. It is open only to U.S. and Canadian residents which is a rule of the company, due to postage. Sorry about that. Have a nice day!
    Blessings, Beth

  3. Looks like a lovely dinner~ sweet kitty seemed to enjoy it too too!

  4. Good day, Susan,

    Thank you for your lovely comment. I'm very happy to hear you got your little book of quotes - perfect.

    Your table is just beautiful. I'm not a photographer, but I actually liked the lighting. It made everything look romantic...like a quiet, calm, evening dinner. They have that 'candle lit' glow, Which I'm sure your husband appreciated after a hectic day.

    I also like the way you can arrange your photos in those square compositions. I thought they were lovely enough to be in a magazine and that's what I was thinking when I was looking at them, before I read your post.

    I'm very glad your father-in-law is doing well. You are a loving wife and daughter-in-law.

    May many blessings overtake you today,

  5. What a lovely romantic evening you had! Your table looks gorgeous and I love your teacups! Happy Belated Valentine's Day and here's to many many more!!!

  7. Hi Susan,
    Your teacup is just darling! I like the shape of it and it looks like it would be nice for coffee or tea. Your valentine table is very pretty and romantic with the candles. Thank you for sharing and coming by to have tea with me.
