This past week, I have drained my body and yesterday my energy level hit rock bottom… Still, I enjoyed many intimate moments and woke up today with a happy face and looking forward for my day, and hopefully it will be full of many new surprises…
During this past week I went twice to ATCL at night. ATCL is a country club in Lebanon… I love it, it’s a great spot in my opinion, but at night it takes a different identity, the air is slightly less warm, much more romantic, and all the little souvenirs just come out to refresh your memory…
I also went with my good friend Juan to this new place in Beirut called Junk Yard. It’s a pop up restaurant in a big yard decorated with “junk stuff” and recycled materials. Still, I loved it! It reminded me of Wynwood in Miami.
Still, the highlight of my week is definitely the girls dinner in my little friend’s house….
We were 8 girls, some closer to each other but all super homogeneous, enjoying yummy food, laughing at stupid jokes, and debating sleeping habits… Conversations may seem a bit unusual to you, but interestingly enough it all went on very smoothly and I had a very good time…
Jouji’s aunt cooked for us healthy tasty salads and yummy deserts to help us enjoy our sweet moments together….
Some girls chitchatting...Beautiful view with fun people and good wine: the good life =)My adorable cousin probably dreaming....Lebanese specialties: Rakakat with cheese, little kebbe (after I ate the missing part), bigger kebbe =)That night we ate sushi, salads and Lebanese specialties...Lentille Salad with tomatoes, onions, eggplant and some magic sauceGreat Quinoa salad with halloumi cheese, cranberries, cucumbers, herbsI loved it how on the strawberry tart some crushed pistachios were sprinkled... This chocolate cake had "feuillantines" biscuits... I loved the idea!
And like always it was great night at the Bakas… Even though the little sister was missed
Hope you will enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed my night,
From Beirut with Love,
