It was a simple, quiet but lovely affair. On the eve I had lunch with my girlfriends, their treat at Bakerzin. Then it was dinner with my friend Jalen at Kuishinbo, Suntec City Mall. Also his treat. On my actual birthday, I had dinner with my family at a restaurant at East Coast. My parents’ treat. Ain’t I blessed?
On the eve of my birthday at Bakerzin, I had loads of fun and even managed to gather some career advice from Hilda. And perhaps that’s why she needed a drink to satisfy her thirst. Bring on some hot chocolate with marshmallows for the lady.
These macaroons were utterly delightful, I hated that I had to break it apart.
The grand finale, the dessert tapas.
And on the actual day, a simple dinner date with my family.
Some peanuts to make the stomach rumble, perhaps a hidden strategy for restaurants to make their customers order more.
Cooking away the beef, mushrooms and vegetables in a steaming hot pot.
My coconut drink.
My favourite efu noodles. This is usually served at weddings (as a last dish before dessert) or at birthdays. Perhaps, it signifies all things good from that point on.
My birthday cake from a neighbourhood cake shop. Hazelnut sponge cake.
And so…I am one year older. It’s going to get better and better each year. 🙂
