My Birthday with Family

Aug 15, 2008

Mum prepared this 'Red Hard-Boiled Eggs' for me on 29-July. This tradition has been repeated years by years to all of us. Hope I can also prepare it for her next year.
Then 2 ang pao packets from Mum & Dad. I didn't wanna take it but mum insisted to. I didn't have the chance to thank Dad personally as he has already left to work.

Dad wrote his wishes on the ang pao. Ever since my 21 years old birthday, I did not receive any gift from Dad anymore. This is the first time I received his ang pao after 12 years. Maybe I'm getting married soon and he wanna send his wishes to me for this year. Anyway, I text him a thank you note.

My elder brother spent me a scrumptious dinner at Tuk Suk Gong. Before we left to the restaurant, I called up Dad. He said he will be back soon. It was 7pm and he was still not back yet. I knew he was drinking with his friends & won't made it for the dinner already. We waited for another half an hour & we decided to go without him. He called me up asking where we heading to for the dinner. I told him the place & he replied me that he didn't like Korean food. Hence, he was not joining us for dinner. Well, I was disappointed with his reply. For me, the food is not important. If he will to come back early and told us that he wanted a Chinese cuisine, we will change the venue. I just wished that we can have a good quality of get together times before I'm marry.

Following are the side dishes served during the dinner. It was most of less the same as per my last visit.

This pancake is very delicious.

Ginseng Chicken Soup. It wasn't as per my expectation.

Korean Glass Noodle. The chef cooked it just nice & it was very yummy.

Seafood pancake. It was very crunchy. Mum said she wanted to try out this dish.

He has his personal chopsticks.

Mum, Kai Jun & I. Cis! Dirty Kai Jun was digging his nose.

The one in green is my younger brother. Greedy Kai Jun was peeping on the cake.

This Chocolate Cheese Cake was bought by my younger brother.

Lets say 'cheese' before singing the birthday's song.

He just couldn't wait to swallow the cake.

My elder brother, my SIL and Kai Jun.

My favourite junk from Tuk Suk Gong. I asked the lady boss whether she sells this crackers. Yes, I got this big pack for RM 10.

Thanks everyone in the family for celebrating my 33-year-old birthday!
