Meeting Baby Mia

Alex and Ceci created new life a few months ago called Mia. I've been obsessed looking at Mia's photos on Facebook and have been dying to meet her. Finally this past weekend we flew over to Milan and drove to Lugano to meet the little angel. If you are wondering what a half Italian, half Taiwanese baby would look like then wonder no more. Take a look at this beauty.

Saad and I couldn't keep our hands off her, she is so sweet and never cries!

Ceci home baked bread for breakfast for us, she has gone very domesticated after becoming a mom. I love it, I can't wait to make my own bread when I am a mommy. Oh, and by the way, can we take a moment to appreciate Alex and Ceci's apartment please? Makes me wonder why are we all living in tiny flats in London? Some how we are never able to escape this city.

One of the perks with living in west Europe is that you can pretty much drive for not too long and you will either be in a new country or an iconic town/city. This is something we can't do as easily in the UK, crossing the channel is a nuisance on its own. So this weekend we took the advantage of this fact and drove across the boarder from Lugano in Switzerland to Como which is only 20 mins away.

I've been to lake Como many times before but only along the small villages, never in Como town itself. Today however Alex and Ceci are taking us to their favourite restaurant that is in the centre of Como called 'Market Place'. If I am not mistaken I think they may have 1 michelin star, but if they don't then they definitely deserve one. If you are ever in Como and looking for something more special than just a bowl of pasta or pizza then I can't recommend this enough. We all took the 5 courses lunch menu with matching wine and I was one happy traveller. We all finished every last bite on our plates. But for the first time in my life I think my attention was more on baby Mia than on the food! I kept wanting to bite her chubby legs.

After lunch we went for a quick walk around town while Mia fell asleep.

Soon it was time to say good bye. Next stop Portofino!
