A Happy Birthday to Hubby!

Today is my Hubby's birthday and we thought we were not going to celebrate his 30 years birthday (he was born in 1981, but in China he's like 30) because there is this tradition in China that a person shouldn't celebrate his/her birthday when he/she is turning to an age that is a multiple of 10. I don't know why we decided to follow this tradition but we as well did. So he has no birthday cake this year, but that doesn't mean we cannot have a weekend night out, right?!

The look before heading out!

These are the main makeups that I used for this look, I didn't include moisturizer, foundation base, foundation and concealer in here coz I want to save them for another blog entry (maybe skincare routine or something like that) so that I can review all of them in detail, so wait to check that out!

Here are the pics for the makeup that I did today! (Sorry they are kinda small but I just want to fit them all in one pic and provide explanation individually!) Note: It's normally very difficult for me to wear pink lipstick because of my skin tone, or I just say I look sick in pink, but I love pink like crazy, so I usually go for a very sheer pink lipstick and put a layer of a nude lipgloss on top of it, and it works!

Eyeshadow:   Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Quad in 07 (Asia exclusive I think)
Eyeliner:   Bobbi Brown  Long-wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink
Mascare:   Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in 01 Black
Highlighter:   Diorshow Face loose power in 001 Blanc Podium Onstage White
Cheeks:   Becca Loose Shimmer Powder in Gypsy
Lipstick:   Nivea Pearl Shine Lipstick
Lipgloss:   Anna Sui Lipgloss in 302
We went to a famous local restaurant called Lone Star and me and my hubby just love the food there, they are amazing! Here is the outside look of the restaurant, isn't that gorgeous?! it's a very traditional Kiwi restaurant!

Try to look cute but was actually a hungry face with huge desire for food, wahahaha......

Me with the New Zealand Mussels dish, it was a entree, 7 fresh green lipped mussels from the beautiful coastal waters of NZ - steamed open in a lemon, white wine and garlic cream sauce, sooooo yummy!

Me again with one extra entree sized Redneck Ribs, 6 pork ribs blanched in honey&spices, blasted in the Lone Star furnace & smothered with hoisin orange & sesame seed sauce. Me and hubby's all time favorite, a must order dish for both of us!

Finally Hubby with his favorite Shank Williams, 2 lamb shanks slowly braised in a rich stock with mushrooms, onions, tomato, redwine and fresh herbs, served with wholegrain mustard mashed potato and Lone Star coleslaw. The dish looks a bit small in the pic, but the shanks are actually huge and hubby was not able to finish them all, coz he's obsessed with my dishes, lol

Well, the dinner was a bit cheaper than we expected coz we spent NZ$150 on my birthday, and this dinner was less than NZ$70, so hubby said we should go see HP7, a movie which held us together 6 years ago when it was HP2 at that time. But I just hated that movie now, I don't know why I didn't go with him coz it's his big day, I should, coz he went to watch Wall Street 2 with me and did not understand the movie in financial aspect at all, well, I think I just got screwed up. But anyway, the food is delicious and we had a wonderful time tonight!
