Book Signing Event: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at Amazon Books.

One of the perks of living near an Amazon Books Retail Store (besides been able to go any time I want to get a book quickly) is that occasionally they have Book Signing’s Events.

Last week I was going for some McDonald’s with my husband when we saw a line of people outside Amazon Books, after looking at the door we saw that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was going to be signing his books that day and I didn’t want to miss the chance to meet this NBA legend and of course get a book signed.

I was impresed to notice that he indeed is really really tall and also he seemed to be very patient (considering there was a lot of people waiting to get their books signed).

Here is one of the pictures of him I was able to take with my iPhone and also a picture of the book he signed for me.

 

 

Food Places: New Year’s Eve at Cantinetta in Bellevue, WA.

Originally my husband and I had planned to have our New Year’s Eve dinner at home but that afternoon we suddenly changed our plans and decided to look for a restaurant in Bellevue, after walking a few blocks we found a lovely Italian place called “Cantinetta”.

The place is really nice, the service good, great music and we really enjoyed the food and best of all is that we didn’t need a reservation for the day (which was great).

This is what we ordered for our first course:


For my second course I ordered the Risotto and my husband shared some of his Ravioli with me.

We also enjoyed a Filet mignon and a some dessert (unfortunately I don’t have a picture to share, but both were good).

Considering that we enjoyed the place we will probably be back in the future. šŸ™‚
