New Year Eve Dinner @L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon - 31 Dec 2013

This restaurant was in my waiting list for a while after we had tried out Joel Robuchon Fine Dining next door. 
Since I could not think of a better place for our New Year Eve Dinner, we booked this place.
Sitting at the counter watching the staff working and  chatting with them, it was very relaxing as compare to the serious atmosphere of Joel Robuchon Fine Dining nest door. Taking time to enjoy the good food and drinks, we really enjoyed ourselves here.
It was a very nice and memorable New Year Eve Dinner.

Tapas 24 and Shopping in Barcelona - 28 Dec 2013 pm

Tapas 24, Barcelona
I found this place from my search in Internet. After our tour to Montserrat, I asked our tour guide to send us here. It was a small Tapas restaurant and was crowded. We queue for around half an hour and managed to secure 2 seats at the counter. The food was very good and we are very pleased that we did make an effort here.

A very simple Tomato Toast but it was very nice.

Montserrat, Barcelona, Spain - 28 Dec 2013 am

The program this morning is to visit Montserrat. 
We drove through the city and saw this fat cat at La Rambla. 
It was created by Colombian artist Fernando Botero, who is famous for his Fat animal and human sculptures. There is also a sculpture by him in Singapore, a Fat Bird at UOB Plaza right in front of Singapore River.
