10 years and

...NOT Counting

We’ve got a few days before the next round of madness start (i.e. the Paralympics) so let’s change subject because today it’s anniversary day at the Suiter’s.

Ten years ago (already!) we were partying until the wee hours of the morning (7am – we were still young and energetic!!) for our wedding. To celebrate our 10 years (well actually we’ve been together 17!) Jeffrey invited me to dinner at the new French restaurant by renowned French Chef Daniel Boulud near Tiananmen Square. The cuisine is “franco-american” like M. Boulud who has kept his traditional connection to Lyon (culinary capital within France) and has been base in the US for over 30 years. So it was the perfect combination/representation for our "franco-american" marriage.

“Maison Boulud” is located in the building which used to host the old American Embassy where former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger met his equivalent Zhou Enlai to prepare the historical visit of President Richard Nixon to China in 1972.

We received the same "candles holders as presents for our wedding (France & USA)
On the box, Jeffrey had our names and the words 10 years written in Chinese
