Julie took me to La Belle (v. swanky) to get waxed for Hawaii. I got my v. first Brazilian bikini wax. It was “not as bad as you think it’ll be” — Julie’s words:p But true, if only because I thought it was going to be really really painful despite what she said. I have a low pain threshold:p When I got in for the appointment, the lady was all, “first time?” Why yes, I didn’t know it showed! :p She then told me to relax and baby powdered everything, then applied warm wax, then RIIIIP!!! This really isn’t doing it justice, but I don’t see how anything could. She told me to relax cos it’d be easier on me if I wasn’t all tense, if I was tense there could be bruising. You can bet I relaxed ASAP:p After waxing, she put some kind of cleansing thing, saying, “This will sting a little.” So I sort of braced myself, but then it was cool and I was all, this isn’t so bad, then it STUNG. V. tricksy:p But yeah, I like it, I don’t like shaving, I somehow manage to cut myself way more often than should be possible with a safety razor. It hurt, but not horribly so.
After waxing, we went to Suppenküche, a German restaurant. For once, we remembered to both bring a camera and take pictures:)
I got the Sauteed Venison Medallions in Red Wine Plum Sauce with Red Cabbage and Spätzle. I thought it was good, but the sweet-tart wine/plum sauce was a little on the sweet side for me personally. But the waitress recommended it and in general I think it’s a popular dish.
Yut and Al both got the Wild Boar with sauerkraut, bread pudding, in a mushroom sauce. That mushroom sauce was delicious! I think this is also maybe part of the reason why I was less impressed with the red wine plum sauce, cos this was sooo delicious.
We also all shared Potato Pancakes with Homemade Apple Sauce for appetizer, but I didn’t take any pictures cos at that point we were hungry. And it was sooooo yummilicious. It was also a lot of food, so no dessert.
Okay, I’m all sleepy now, and we’re leaving for Hawaii in the morning. If I can, I’ll update:D
