New Year's Eve dinner at downtown San Mateo

Was feeling a little under the weather today despite having a good night's sleep. Actually, make that very under the weather because of the onslaught of once-a-month cramps. Why oh why do women have to endure that.

Halfway through working on next week's itinerary (and holding a heat pad to the stomach for dear life), Panda called from the office and asked if I have bathed.

"Huh? Yes, I have." I had to bring our smelly trash to the rubbish bins downstairs and I figured that I better not let our neighbours see me in this sad and dirty state.

"I've booked a table for us at the Italian restaurant at 6pm. Can you get ready in time?"

It was close to 5pm and I had a split second to decide if I should stay at home, crouch over in bed and rot through the last day of 2012, or brave the pain and go ahead with dinner.

Needless to say, dinner plan won because it's been a while since we've gone to a nice restaurant with good ambience!

Here are the photos of our dinner at Osteria Coppa in downtown San Mateo. The service is excellent and I didn't regret coming out of my hole to enjoy the festive atmosphere. We say thanks to a wonderful 2012, and cheers to an amazing, soon-to-come 2013!
