It was my Granny's 90th BIG Bday!!!
Brought Juney along to the celebration at my family's usual restaurant near my place:
We took forever just to prepare and only ended up being the last few to arrive:
***Bought Granny Bird Nest for her present and Juney gave her a Red Packet!
My extremely narcissistic 3rd sister who initiated the cam-whoring;
Our empty table:
Luckily we were late but just in time for the cuisines!
Just a mere 10 mins, the appetizer is already up~
Everyone's favorite, except my 3rd sis, who's unappreciative:
Oh my Holly Goodness! The entire chunk of Shark's Fin!
Usually, the banquets that I've been to, serve more of shredded chicken rather than the Fin.
Furthermore, the shark's fin are usually "invisible".
Then again, it's the taste that I like.
Honestly speaking, I don't exactly mind the $2 Sharks Fin either (:
Abaloneeeee! My Favorite x 10000000000 times!
But of course, it's not a usual dish in my daily life.
I've found a better substitution, cheaper, more chewy and tastes even better.
I'm not sure if you've heard of it though.
It's a kind of abalone mushroom; exact taste and resembles it as well!
Sometimes, abalone tends to be rather tough and rubbery yea?
Try abalone mushroom instead!
**PS: I hurried to grab a piece of abalone.
Then i "virtually" slapped myself to realize that i have to allow my relatives
have their share as well, so I've to be good with just one =(
I have absolutely no idea, why and how did the cabbage dish ended up on our table.
Kindly exchange it for my abalones please?!?!
One is just so not enough for me =(
I'm very tempted to have this.
But I went against my will and decided to play safe so that I won't have my wounds melting the next day.
Pretty filled by then...
And no, when I'm overwhelmed with expensive cuisines, noodles aint in my list either =P
Last but not least...
The Dessert that I Dig so, like totally!
Yam Paste! "Orh Ni"~~~
The Super Delicious + HUGE Durian Flavored Birthday Cake!
**From my cousin's bakery (:
Want to get something like that? Discounts discounts and guaranteed quality!
The Super Huge Crowd; fully formed by my Big Family!
At least 100 over of us.
Singing the Birthday Song.
The restaurant even had the song played!
The Chinese Version, and it just kept repeating.
We sang at least 5 times?
That explains the laughters (:
We had like 9 tables,
and the Restaurant seemed like it's being booked by us which is supposedly not.
Yes, my granny have got 12 kids in total!
Happy Birthday Granny!
I love you...
I promise that I'll try to visit you more often...
I'm sorry that I haven been spending more time with you
even though I know it just takes a little more effort on my side.
Yet you've been so understanding towards me all this while.
Each time, when I see the tears in your eyes,
asking me to stay a little longer,
telling me that you've not much time left...
I'm just dumbfounded.
Guilty, yes I am.
And that's the reason why I've been buying stuffs for you.
Not because I'm filial, as what the others have complimented me to be.
But, because I just don't know how to make it up to you.
And I don't want to regret when I really lose you...
But deep inside I know, no matter how much I try,
I'm still gonna regret at the end, for not seeing you as often as I could.
I just, really do love you...
and from today onwards, I'll force myself to wake up early, just to lunch together with you.
**Ps: Winnie's not inside this pic because she left early.
