Milan Day 5, 2012

Today was a lazy day. Went to uni, had lunch, went back to the apartment and napped. Didn't want to go out because the weather had turned colder. Yi had an invitation by the ad people who handled her Nespresso project to the opening of the premier mountaineering products store, Salewa. Despite my shyness, I enjoyed myself and met some very nice people.



Salewa makes the lightest quality ski jackets and equipment.




Glen Plake is the ambassador for Salewa. Glen is a top freestyle skier and a pioneer of extreme skiing. I didn't know when I met him that he had just survived an avalanche in Nepal that killed 11 people in Sept 2012. Glen's team was attempting to be the first team to climb the world's 8th highest peak, Mt Manaslu, without oxygen.

On the way home, we went to Grand Italia, a very popular restaurant frequently by the locals, for a late dinner with A, who was leaving the next day. This was Yi's delicious osso buco with saffron risotto, a Milanese speciality. 

A's pasta with zucchini, also very good.

My cotoletta, not as good as the one we had at Lost In Food Experience.

Lemon tart.

Tartufo nero bianco (black and white ice cream).

The chef was friendly and invited us to look at his wood stove where the pizzas are baked.

"wood stove" ... is that a euphemism?

despite your comment "not as good" it all looks fantastic ... and its probably all good, i think you have become jaded ... time for you to eat packaged noodles for a month or two to regain your perspective. LOL

lunchguy: ok, wood-fried stove!

hmm, i think u're right bc i came back, ate a bowl of noodles outside n was disgusted by the sweet-saltish taste around my mouth n on my tongue for the rest of the day. MSG!
