My beloved papa celebrated his 71st birthday with us in KL this year. His birthday was yesterday, 19 August but he and mum came to KL on Saturday to have a small celebration with us. We make it a point to go back to Ipoh to celebrate his birthday almost every year but this year, his birthday week did not coincide with any public holiday or school holiday, unlike previous years. Initially we wanted to make a trip back to Ipoh on Saturday and return to KL on Sunday but dad being the ever loving and sacrificing dad said that it would be too hectic for us as the girls had to go to school on Monday. So, he volunteered to drive down to KL. My 71-year old dad driving his car on the highway – that actually got me worrying about him. Thank God he and mum reached KL safely and returned to Ipoh safely the next day.
The chocolate fudge birthday cake is from Les Deux Garcons Patisserie. The cake was very chocolaty, moist and not overly sweet nor cloy. Simplicity and elegance best describe this chocolate cake, baked by a French baker.
My parents with their ‘chan kar’ – my mil. Picture is cropped coz my MIL does not want her face to appear in the world wide web
The birthday dinner was held at Pik Wah (MABA) Restaurant @ Jalan Pudu.
The Four Seasons dish… which was enough to fill our tummies up with just this dish alone.
There was also a bowl of sharks fins soup, fried chicken with prawn crackers, veggie and this must-have longevity noodles.
Dad, mum, Cass and my youngest brother, Roy. Isn’t he good-looking? Well, he is still available (ahem), holds a good-paying job, holds degree from a UK uni, is a fitness freak with six packs and has everything a girl wants. *clears throat* I hope Roy, who is in his late 30s does not read this post else he will be ballistic and fuming mad with me for ‘advertising’ his availability lol!
Cass looks mopey in the picture as she was down with a slight runny nose that night.
Dim Sum brunch at Oriental Pavillion @ Jaya 33 PJ the next day. Cass sticks to my mum like bee to honey and calls her granny ‘best buddy’
The Rainbow Loom bracelets that Alycia, Sherilyn and Cass made for koong koong for his birthday
After brunch at Oriental Pavillion, we did some shopping at Jaya Grocer before adjourning to Doifee Cafe @ Taman Desa for some nice coffee and cakes.
I pray that God will bestow my papa with the best of health, razor sharp mental acuity and impeccable physical mobility always. Happy birthday papa and may you be blessed with many, many more birthdays
