Another year has passed and I am now 51. When I turned 50 it felt quite celebratory because I crossed that halfway line to half a century. So for the next 9 years it will be the same old same old and then I get excited at 60. Hah!
It was just another day and my first birthday wish came from my auntie in NZ at 4:06 a.m. Then from my brother and then mum. My partner's greeting did not come until I was busy tucking into my lunch. Men. They forget these things. LOL!
So anyway. I had a quiet birthday and I just hung out on my own at A Foodie's Nest@The Starling.
It was very peaceful. The day before I was thinking what to eat. Last year I celebrated at The Good Batch and I had a really enjoyable lunch. At the time, I told myself, I will come back for my next birthday. But after a few recent visits, I'm afraid the Good Batch is not what it used to be.
So I figured I should just eat what I enjoy most at a place I am most comfortable at. So there I was. While waiting for my food, I was amused to see the sign on the left.
No sleeping? Then I saw someone sleeping.
He must be very tired. Poor thing.
Ah! Lunch. My favorite. My partner in his message asked me to go eat mee suah. Where got mee suah here?
So this wat tan hor will have to do. Look at that. The plate runneth over with goodies galore.
I asked for double dose of pickled green chilies.
Then back at the office, I allowed myself a Snickers bar.
Haven't had this for ages. So good!
Birthday dinner. Sendiri sponsor, sendiri makan. My partner had a dinner date with a friend who returned from overseas. So we did not have dinner like we did before.
I had a sudden craving for Nene Chicken. In spite of my fully loaded wat tan hor lunch, I managed to down 5 pieces of freakin hot chicken. And a tub of coleslaw.
This is terrible. I must go back on diet next week. Or maybe the week after. We'll see. Happy Birthday to me.
