In case you don't know, Victoria is the name of one of the evil vampires in Twilight. And no I'm not a twilighter, I just happened to catch part of the movie on Warner TV on cable.
Anyway, does anyone know the name given to fans of Twilight? I've been pondering about this for a while and a search on Google didn't provide me with the latest answer.
Before I trail off topic, I've to clarify that this post is not about Twilight but about GARLICS.

Dear evan had got some discount vouchers for Mad for Garlic and since reviews on that place were favourable, we decided to stuff ourselves and stink our breath with garlic dishes to ward off Victoria that evening.
"Originated in Korea in 2001, Mad For Garlic is one of Korea’s most popular restaurant chains known for its unique and innovative menu with garlic-specialized Italian cuisine served in an atmosphere of medieval European rustic tavern."
We met up with her fiance at the restaurant itself after we were done with camera shopping. (Yes! She got the Canon S95 too, after playing around with mine and realising what a good point and shoot it is.)
The decor is reminiscent of a rustic European tavern.
For main dish, there were pizzas...
and then there were pastas.
For appetizers, we had Dracula Killer which is a dish of soft bread served with garlic cooked in olive oil and anchovies. It was a rather unique dish. I would have loved it better if the garlic was more salty and not so bitter. I've got a soft spot for the soft bread. I'm tired of hurting my very weak teeth trying to gnaw off hard bread at most eateries.
For mains, we had the Calzone Pizza...
...served with garlic dip. I love the dip!
We also had the Garlic Snowing Pizza topped with shrimps and pineapple dice which was one of the recommended dishes.
The snowing pizza was good except for the fact that after eating a few slices, we hoped that the pieces of garlic were chunks of juicy tangy pineapple instead. All the bitter garlic after taste with not much salt was beginning to be a little too overpowering for our tastebuds.
The final mains was Lobster Pasta topped with fish roe.
All the dishes were actually not bad if we were to savour them individually but because they weren't really too salty, the cooked bitter garlic aftertaste was a little overpowering. I guess we ordered too much but still we finished up everything, except some cloves of garlic.
Enough of mouth-watering food shots. Now for some people shots coz we're delicious too ok?
I just trimmed and neaten my hair as you could see how bad my bangs looked in the previous post though it was a little too layered for my liking.
I always marvel at how alike they look! 夫妻相!
Being inspired by Nelah, I shall end this post with an acid jazz tune.
