This year’s birthday celebration was pretty quiet. No house parties, just meeting up with friends for meals. I even spent half a day in the Court of Appeal waiting for my case to be called.
When the clock struck at 12AM, my wife and her sister presented me with a green tea cake. YUM.
Aakiang and I celebrated our birthday together at Daikanyama, Changkat Bukit Bintang on a Monday night. Great food and we had two bottles of Umeshu before moving to Magnificent Fish and Chips for drinks. It was also our first time having dinner with the newly wed couple Ping and Yoke Chin as husband and wife. They had their wedding ceremony a night before that.
Aakiang admiring his drink.
My wife brought me to Prime at Le Meridian for dinner. They are known for their steaks. I had a Wagyu beef steak, which was awesome, whereas my wife had lobster. Complimentary bread with three types of butter were served. Food was really good but it was extremely pricey. My steak cost me a few hundred bucks.
4 different types of sauce + mash potatoes.
I told my wife that we should take home some cutlery to compensate for the high prices. She covered her face in shame.
Umeng came back for the weekend. He moved to Macau from Brisbane and he’s designing casinos now. KF, WK, Umeng and I gathered at Hen’s place for wine and karaoke. He has a karaoke room in his house!
We went home around 5AM. I don’t remember the last time staying up later than 3AM. I had a hangover the next day!
On the same day, my West side friends held a joint celebration for Eric C and I. We had dinner at Fish Village Steamboat, Puchong. Will write more about this place in a separate post.
Instead of heading to Mid Valley, My parents, my wife and I had dinner at Padi House, Seri Petaling for dinner. My Dad bought me a book called, “Richest Man in Babylon”. I’ve heard of the book but I’ve not read it. Dad left a note there stating, “Be Inspired”.
My friends from the West Side joined me and Eric C for dinner to celebrate our birthday at Restaurant Fish Market Steamboat, Pusat Bandar Puchong. Eric C’s birthday was on the 19 September while mine was 24 September. Thus, 22 September, which falls on a Sunday, became the most suitable date for us to celebrate our birthdays.
Eric’s best man, Charles, ordered the best dishes from the restaurant. Salt baked crab was the highlight of the night. It was humongous and tasty.
Steamed Prawns were also good as well. I love the sauce that came with it.
Lala fried noodles is also highly recommended.
We supplemented our dishes with a big bowl of steam boat!
There’s always room for dessert. We drove to Tang Shi Fu at Puchong for some dessert before heading home. It was an alcohol free night for me!
It’s amazing how time flies. It’s October now and 2014 is approaching. Have a good year ahead everyone!
