Another year wiser, hope so!
Birthday has no longer an exciting thing I look forward to since as years pass, what it means to me is I'm getting older and older :( Being someone who is not very expressive and feel uncomfortable in the crowd, I prefer a simple and quiet celebration approach - just with someone I love and close with. The only year that I had a big celebration was my 21st birthday. During our time, disco function seemed to be something couldn't avoid. I had a close friend helped me to organize everything for me, I dressed up so formally and spent so much time and money on that night. Was it worth ? The answer is yes but one is enough! It's a good experience as I will never have another 21st!
Being able to bake birthday cake for people, I supposed I could bake my own cake. However, I find it meaningless and therefore, I refuse to do it. It'll be nice if my daughters could bake for me but I guess this may only come true in the dream .. I had heard a lot of good recommendation about the dessert in Bakerzin and therefore, asked my hubby to get my cake from there. I picked the Chocolate Amer cake which is one of their best seller. From my view, this is more a mousse-like cake, it's soft and rich and for people who is chocolate lover, certainly they will love it. As for me, I think it's good but not to the best yet. Anyway, it's a good choice since both my daughters are chocolate lovers.
For the birthday meal, I hesitated for a long while to decide where I should go. Finally, I picked Earle Swensens since I prefer a light meal with some dessert to go with but I was a bit disappointed as the beef and salmon in Earle were over cooked and dried. Only the bake rice was fine. We ended the meal with some ice-cream dessert.
That's all about my birthday this year .. A simple birthday cake plus a birthday lunch :)
