Birthday Gift for Myself

28 10 2011

My birthday is coming soon, and this being a BIG birthday (noughties are always big), I decided to get myself something special.

It’s a CD of my favourite Japanese band, Anzenchitai 安全地带, with their latest album 安全地带 XII which wouldn’t be released so soon in Malaysia and wouldn’t be easily found as well anyway. So I did the next best thing: I ordered it via the net from Hong Kong and voila!

安全地带 XII

Arrived just in time before we moved office, otherwise FedEx would have returned it to sender.





Lantern Time

11 09 2011

中秋节又来临了! It’s mooncake festival time again and as usual, we would all gather for dinner and let the kids play with lanterns (more like candles only nowadays).

It seems the festival is no longer like what it was meant to be, where children of the surrounding would all gather and go for walkabouts while the adults would gather to taste the mooncakes. Modern-day paranoia has made it such that all the kids celebrate within the confines of their own home only, while mooncakes are bought more for giving and not so much for eating. Seriously, have you seen some of the odd-taste mooncakes being sold? *BWEEAAGGHHHH*





Jason’s Birthday 4 Years Old

6 08 2011

Today is Jason’s birthday and he’s four years old. The missus personally made a special cake for her prince and decorated it with some Thomas & Friends toys on top of it.

Happy faces all round

More of clowning around

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SON!

Time to cut the cake

After all the dinner and cake, Big Prince Darrell tells me that he wants to taste the oxtail soup I’ve been talking about for the last few weeks. *SIGH* Reluctantly, his wish was my command.

Do I look like Gordon Ramsay to you?

And the verdict of my soup-making skills?

Good-ah!!!





Wife’s Birthday

11 08 2010

Today is my better half’s birthday. Originally wanted to bring the family out for dinner but the kids are a bit under the weather.

We made up for it by deciding to buy a birthday cake but when we went to the cake shop, the choices were limited and uninspired. So we decided to buy 4 slices of different cakes to liven things up.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR.





Jason is 3 today

We celebrated my niece Charlotte’s 6th birthday today. We bought her books as presents, which we bought from MPH Mid Valley this morning. Happy Birthday, Charlotte.





Dad’s 65th Birthday

20 03 2010

Tonight we celebrated dad’s 65th birthday. We took him out for an eight-course dinner at Jun Kee Restaurant in Taman Midah.

After dinner, we went back home to celebrate his birthday. Just so happened that a group of his friends dropped by to visit, so we had more people to share the joy and the cake.

Happy Birthday, Dad!
