Aftertaste Premium Dining

28303811245_a27ef08261_k

When it comes to premium dining in second life that actually seems more like a real life experience rather than a virtual culinary delight, there really is only one choice for me ” Aftertaste Premium Dining Restaurant “.I have never ever reviewed a restaurant before in second life but after several visits to aftertaste with January, I felt compelled to share my thoughts on the whole virtual dining experience.

Owned and operated by Ron, and Savannah Kira Aftertaste really raises the bar on what premium dining in second life is really all about. Harking back to 2015 I remember my first experience of the aftertaste restaurant, and at the time I remember thinking. Am I in a dream or is this real, it was difficult to differentiate between second life and real life. I had been transported to a world of more than just premium dining.

Ron and Savannah Kira are two of the loveliest people I have ever met in second life. They are so dedicated to what they do and have such a great sense of humour, they really make you feel like you’re one of their family. This is something I had never experienced before dining in any second life restaurant, no sooner had we been ushered to our table we were presented with our menu’s and we were given plenty of time to peruse the various choices available.

After you’ve had your breakfast lunch or dinner you’re welcomed to take a walk along a long winding path, or if you prefer you can take a horse and carriage on a tour of the surrounding area taking in the beautiful sights of the ocean and the misty mountains that hug the mouth of the bay.  A night time wind light is highly recommended for the most romantic experience at aftertaste restaurant there is a special fireworks display and even a path that leads down to a romantic little outdoor open dance floor.

Bookings are a breeze, and can be made via filling out a notecard just inside the entrance by the register, between the hours of 5pm SLT and 8pm SLT 250L per person. Included in your premium dining experience package is a 4-course meal which includes appetizers, entrees drinks, and a delicious dessert to top it all off.

Lastly, I’d like to thank Ron and Savannah Kira for making mine and January’s premium dining experience a very special treat. It is something we always look forward to when we don’t feel like staying in and cooking, and we look forward to seeing you again for another fun filled night sharing a few laughs and enjoying a very tasty meal until then au revoir.! x

Part One – Bad Holiday Snaps

28047305722_f887ebc3c6_k

Hello again to all those who read my blogs and to all those who haven’t read my blog posts yet um future hello?. I am back after so many months with a revamped blog and some new material. I have decided to write about my trip to Venice, not the real Venice the second life Venice which turned out to be an absolute disaster!

28072413831_eb1b692700_k

Arriving in Venice I decided to walk along the many bridges, and paths, and bridges and more paths taking in the sights of this truly beautiful city. The sky was strangely purple, maybe it was caused by all the fumes of the cheese and bread being baked (cheese is not baked what the hell was I thinking?) anyway I leant over the side of the bridge a little too far and dropped my camera into the canal (oops!)….

I managed to secure the services of two surly looking fisherman nearby and asked them very politely if they  would  be kind enough to fish my little camera out of the canal, they told me they were on their lunch break and I had to do it myself (thanks very much guys pfft). I stuck my hand in the murky water and almost got savaged by several Venetian crabs, after much digging around in the water I finally retrieved my camera it was soaked and I was pretty sure the film was ruined….sigh!

I spent at least three weeks in Venice after that little incident buying souvenirs, and mingling with the public discussing cheese and bread density. After three weeks had passed it was time to go home, and once I arrived home. I took my camera into the local camera film developer thingy shop to get my film developed. I’ve included three pictures below from my trip to Venice enjoy! join me next time for more misadventures in part two!

Regret

I deeply regret that I shall have to stop blogging indefinitely due to my ever increasing poor health. I wish you all a happy thanksgiving and a very happy Christmas this year. I will really miss blogging even though I was relatively new to it, but my decision has come with much regret I just don’t have time anymore or energy. I love you all and someday I may return but for now I must focus on trying to beat cancer.

I’ll be back again….

Unfortunately, it saddens me to have to stop blogging for a while due to my poor health at the moment. This is not the end of the road but rather a short break so that I can recover and get back on my feet again. I will miss you all and rest assured I will be back to blogging by the 18th of October I love you all, and I shall look forward to writing and taking pictures again very very soon until then bye bye and God bless you all!

Forest Queen

Forest Queen

Sitting upon a throne of leaves she waits and ponders.

Heaven opens up with a terrible roar of thunder.

Her enemies are approaching with haste,

And the forest queen knows there is no time to waste.

She must prepare her army and march on through the night,

She takes no prisoners no life in sight.

Fighting hard against enemies abound,

Swords clashing with a gut wrenching awful sound.

Her battle has been won it’s time for her to go home,

But she will not be travelling alone.

Her army is once again victorious and shall celebrate tonight.

A grand feast and dance will be held it shall be a glorious sight.

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

As I sit here in this ratty old chair all alone,

Wondering if you’re ever coming home.

That fight we had, well that was just a little row don’t let it get you down.

Just come and talk to me I hear myself say these words my whispers confidentially.

I need you here with me for without you by my side my heart just cannot beat.

As I hear you pull into the drive my heart begins to beat faster suddenly I feel alive.

Racing to the front door forgetting harsh words said you are what matters to me more.

Being swept up into your arms absorbed by your undying love and all it’s charms.

I’m so glad that your back I’m as happy as can be because you’re now home sweet home with me.

Afterglow

Afterglow

Stopping for a while to take in this pleasant afterglow,

There is something I just have to know.

Do you still dream in black and white what colours do you see when you kiss me goodnight.

Is there someone else I often wonder who is she,

Who is the girl that steals my thunder.

Do you love her as much as you love me or is she just another one of your improprieties.

A crepuscular darkness surrounds me now as I wander through the afterglow of this diminutive town.

Bluer Than Blue

Bluer Than Blue

Bluer than blue skies turned from grey for me it’s such a happy day.

I’m basking in the warmth of friends and fresh fields golden sunshine beginning to yield.

What shall I do today I wonder maybe saddle my horse and go for a canter, or call up some old acquaintances and have a long engaging banter.

So many possibilities and not nearly enough time as I sit by my window and watch the mid-morning sun begin to rise and shine.

I know what I should do instead. I think I will climb back under the covers and let this day pass me by while I am snoozing in bed.

Dark Matter

Dark Matter

Don’t play with her she’s had enough,

She’ll teach you a lesson and turn your heart into dust.

You will regret ever crossing her path once you’ve succumbed to her evil wrath.

She’s a woman scorn in a cruel and torturous world,

She used to be such an innocent little girl.

If you see her just take my advice stay well clear don’t get too close,

For if you do she will summon her inner most demons and your soul will be toast.
