Date Night

This past weekend, Chhally and I went out for a date night. We enjoyed dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant, Japanica! I ordered my favorite, the shrimp tempura roll. Mmmm. I honestly can say that their shrimp tempura roll is the best in the city. I also ordered the Crispy Salmon Skin roll, composed of deep fried and crunchy salmon skin with cucumbers. I also got the East roll which had shrimp, egg, avocado, and crab.

We also tried Edamame for the first time! I liked it. It's fun to eat but Chhally recommends you pop the soybeans out instead of chewing on the whole bean. But chewing on the whole bean is what I found fun about eating Edamame! He said he's opened up a soybean pod to find a small worm before. ): But it's not the restaurant's fault! As they can't really see or check the insides of the edamame pods. So exercise  caution and inspect each edamame pod before chewing on it!

After dinner, we went for a walk downtown to burn off the food. The weather in Milwaukee has been crazy hot. You will always find things to discover when you're walking around downtown in the summer time.

And a horse carriage! Er, horse carriage?

Yes! Horse carriage!! The smug smile on Chhally's face as he handed the man a twenty dollar bill might've had something to do with it!

I get to cross this off my bucket list now. ^_^

Slow horse gallops. City lights.  Cool evening breeze. Cuddling in the back seat of the carriage. Romantic!

Until random tourists and pedestrians start pointing you out in excitement because they've never seen a horse carriage in person before. Everyone we passed took pictures and waved. It was amusing because I know I did the exact same thing whenever I saw one pass me by! I would freak out because it was just so cool! I never stopped to think how awkward it must've made the ride for the couple. Haha, oops.

But I'm not complaining! It was one of the best nights I could ever ask for. I loved every minute of it. These are the nights I live for.
