So I wanted to update you on my busy weekend apart from the Essence event I went to on Saturday.
December is a busy month, besides all the Christmas and Holiday preparations it consists of lots of birthdays and even my yearly anniversary of when Luke and I started going out.
I cannot believe it has been two years already. This weekend I had 2 dinners and 1 lunch! And I just wanted to share the experiences I had with you all! Now if you want to skip this part and go and watch my new video that I just put up then zoom on downwards!
So on Friday evening Luke and I went to Blue Elephant for our 2 year anniversary.
The place is beautiful, I cannot argue at all there. I mean it is in one of the best hotels in Malta- Hilton. The setting was beautiful, the table fixtures were high class. . . I mean I never went to a restaurant that had cushions on their chairs, so you would feel more comfortable. Nor have I ever went to eat a place that had a bridge with a small river of sorts.
So yes the place is beautiful and all that !! But the food for someone who is Gluten and Egg Intolerant is HORRIBLE!!
First they come with these crackers and they told me that they are gluten free. So I ate them and my they were good! But then when the basket was empty another waiter comes and tells me I am so sorry but the chef has just informed that they are NOT gluten free!! That is ridiculous. I mean thank god I don’t have any quick horrible reactions when eating gluten but that just ruined my night.
See my intolerance has gotten kind of worse. Before I used to only feel itchy and had little bumps appear. But now I get horrible stomach cramps, I feel so bloated and even have a whirlwind of gas. So yes eating gluten is a definite no no now as before I used to say, ‘Oh I can endure some scratchy sensations!’ But now I don’t make up excuses as to why I can take a McDonalds or scrumptious cake.
So knowing I just ate gluten made my stomach turn and the night went downhill from there. For the starter I wanted Chicken Satay but no I couldn’t cos it had gluten. For the main I wanted another chicken dish because we ended up taking Thai Fish cakes as the starter. The chicken I wanted also had gluten and so I had to resort to some sort of chicken which for me when I tasted it, it turned out to be the chewy soup chicken!
This was my look for Friday Evening!
I swear my favourite part of the night was my scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, the fruit plate that was complementary because Luke told them we were celebrating, the flower I received at the end of the night and the wine! So anything besides the food!
So anyways that passed and the next morning my friend and I went to the Essence event and then we went for lunch. We went to the cafe which is next to JB stores. Forgive me all but I forgot the name, but the cafe is too cute. I ordered a salmon salad and it was delicious!
So then the evening came, and I had my brother’s birthday dinner. I told you from the title that this includes a lot of food intel!
(Follow me on Snapchat – kezikezi – this was my look for Saturday Evening!)
So we went to Gululu in St.Julian’s. His choice! It is a typical Maltese restaurant. My brother informed them about my lucky intolerance and so I was at ease! Or so I thought!
They told us that they cannot do a pasta dish for me as every sauce either has gluten or egg in it. Even a TOMATO SAUCE! How can a Tomato sauce have egg or gluten? I think they just didn’t have any gluten free pasta period!
And the only meat they had was one dish which was not that appealing to me. So unfortunately, I had to take another salad, this time a Chicken Salad. And I was so sad about this that I didn’t even take a photo of my food. See I take photos of the food I take when I go out to eat all the time, but not this one!
Anywho’s so that was my luck with food this weekend! I hope I didn’t bore you to death! I am currently in bed all cosy with my Christmas Spice candle burning and just felt like writing!
Before I end this post I would like to embed my new video that I just posted –
It is a simple autumn makeup tutorial which I filmed quite a while back! So apologies for it going up now, but I always wanted to upload other videos but this week was the week for it to go up!
I also would like to add that tomorrow I shall be flying to Rome, so if you see a lack of BLOGMAS you know why! I will try my best to put up something, however I will not be taking any technological apparatus besides a mobile phone with me! So I will be quite limited haha! I want to enjoy this holiday with Luke as best as I can!
Are you going to be travelling this Christmas? What are you all going to be doing on Christmas Day?
Thank you so much for reading!
I hope you all have a lovely day!
