MY PEA IS 8

"Love at first sight"...yes, that's the best word to describe my feelings when I first set my eyes on Pea at the petshop 8 years ago. I never thought I will end up with a male Shih Tzu because I always prefer to have a female Schauzer or even a Cocker Spaniel. But I just couldn't let my eyes off Pea and so, on that fateful afternoon, an impulse purchase was made. I am so glad I did, cos I am blessed with such a wonderful gentle boy. Baby Pea

Pea turns 8 today but sadly, this is the second time I will not be around to celebrate his birthday with him. However, Hubby promised to give him a big dinner treat tonight.

Pea, I miss you so much and I think of you every single day and I do wish that next year, we will get to celebrate your birthday here in Aussieland. Love you lots lots lots (more than Pumpkin, ok?) *my eyes tearing up already..sniff sniff*

This is my favourite shot of the two boys, taken during my trip back home in February. Can you see that they were holding each others' paws? This is what I call...BROTHERLY LOVE!

MY RIB EYE LUNCH

Hello everyone! It has more than 2 months since I last put up a post...my bad my bad. I have been so hooked up with the games in Facebook, I just don't have the mood to sit down and squeeze words out from my brain. Speaking of brain, for those who know that I am not feeling too well lately, don't worry as I feel much better now. I was down with needle-pricking type of headache for the past 2 weeks and it was due to inflammation on my neck and lower back. My physiotherapist said that the inflammation is caused by too long hours of standing and stress. Although I can still feel the headache once in a while, I feel way better now and successfully reduce my dosage of painkiller.

It's my day off today and since my neck is still a little bit stiff, I thought it would be better to chill at home. Feeling 'beefy', I decided pamper myself with a good piece of steak. Lucky lucky cos I found something new at Coles (well, at least it's new to me)..King Island Rib Eye Bone with Garlic Butter!! It claims to have won the Gold medal in the 2010 Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show.

A bowl of premix Caesar Salad to go with the steak, surprisingly really fresh and tasty.

I just couldn't resist the palm-sized Portobello Mushroom. I had it sliced and sauteed with the remaining oil and the garlic butter after I finished searing the steak.

The pan must be really hot before putting the meat in to sear and it should be flipped only once. I wanted to enjoy the natural sweetness of the beef so I decided to omit the garlic butter and sprinkled the meat with some salt instead. I used the garlic butter to saute the sliced portobello, trust me, it was a very wise decision!

Now here...presenting my lunch today......King Island Rib Eye Steak with Caesar Salad and Sauteed Portobello Mushroom with Garlic Butter! Not bad at all, tender and juicy, no wonder it claims to be Australia's Premium Natural Beef! *Hubby, are you drooling?*

I love my beef bloody......complete satisfaction!
