The Almost Forgotten : MT's 14th Bday Dinner5:48:00 PM
Eh.... This might be the must backdated celebration post ever? LOL.
I imagine CL's reaction when she reads this she'd be like "MT's going to celebrate his 15th soon!" LOLOLOL. In my defense i didn't even remember about this dinner, and it's saved at the back of our South Korea trip so naturally i only saw them when i'm at the end of the series. Then i contemplated not blogging about it. Then i thought it would be unfair and mean since i always blog about Au's bdays *LOL* so what the heck, here it is, 7 months later!
MT's bday's on December 30th (CL purposefully set his bday before new year's eve because C-section on the 31st is super expensive one LOLOLOL), we were in Jakarta and we had dinner at... OMG, i don't remember. I gotta check with my hunny. Yep, hunny also can't remember-he said J.W. Mariott, and i think so to. I remember we talked about the place was bombed before and how my mum was creeped out *LOL*. KC's fam's often stay in this hotel when they're in Jakarta and haven't experienced any supernatural incidents so far :p.
It was at the Chinese restaurant there (i just googled, it's called PEARL :D) and CL booked their VIP room or something (it was a separate dining room and quite spacious).
The ambience was very lux and kinda traditional, but i learned that they serves more of a fusion dishes. Maybe there are traditional Chinese food available also, but the set menu that CL booked that day was very fusion-y. I gotta admit they totally confused my taste bud!

|With the bday boy|
Other than us there were also some of our and CL's relatives, and what surprised us was when CL's uncle showed up wearing a polo shirt that is virtually the same as my dad's! It was quite hilarious seeing the two grandpas wearing matchy matchy clothes :p
|You know HD and DB already, and the other woman is my cousin's wife (and those are her kids)|
Let's take a look at the menu... Which was very pleasing on the eyes + totally photograph worthy, but didn't sit quite right with my tounge *LOL*. In fact, i never really like anything fusion, i hate fusion sushi with cheese and all that! Anyway, i don't remember any of the food, so let's just appreciate their good looks, shall we? LOL.
|If i remember this correctly, it was some sort of chawan mushi? But with peanut butter at the bottom. Totally weird for me *LOL*|
|I think this was fruit salad and it was good|
|Sea cucumber *shudder* i hate sea cucumber.... And was that chicken feet???|
|Fried chicken was normal la|
|Bday cake for the bday boy... And wait, another one coming!|

|Here's the big boy now!|
|Blow le candles, MT, blowwww|
Errr. that's all that, nothing much to write about, we mostly just ate and chit chatting la hahaha. Oh, i found out later that KC also wasn't a fan of the food hahaha so i wasn't the only one (eh, my mum also didn't like). I guess we prefer normal, cheapo Chinese food than the upscale, exp, creative ones *LOL*.
|Selfie with Au|
Oh, i also snapped some pic of my outfit (that i bought especially for this dinner WTH, i only brought winter clothes and some very casual ones to wear at Jakarta-i was always in casual tops and short skirts/pants) but there's only some poses that i could do in a room full of my family and waitresses so.... It's definitely not enough for its own post *LOL* :
|I also didn't bring any formal shoes/sandals so i had to borrow my mum's and it was a size too small, i was in agony *but better than buying a pair then just let it rot like i usually do LOL*|
Okay, i gotta go check my old photos, i wonder if there's any celebrations that i forgot to blog about. Oh shit, there's that MM+O's bday dinner also zzzz....
