My mum celebrated her 70th birthday in KL this year. My parents and younger brother, Roy arrived from Taiwan on Friday afternoon. They had earlier gone on a week-long cruise from Taiwan to Okinawa in Japan. Thank God they survived a nauseous and choppy ride on board a cruise liner amidst Typhoon Meranti when she lashed out on Taiwan last week! On Friday too, my elder brother and his family arrived from Singapore to join us in the 2-day celebration.
To be able to turn 70 and celebrate it with your spouse, children and grandchildren is a blessing from God and indeed an occasion that must be celebrated with grandeur. I wish I can do that too when I roll into the big 70.
Hubs got mum a sumptuous black sesame chocolate cake from Les Deux Garcons.
The birthday dinner was held at Unique Seafood Restaurant, PJ. Hubs booked a room with karaoke coz mum wanted to serenade and dance the whole night! Yep my mum and dad are still sizzling hot even in their 70s. They occasionally dance and sing all night long at parties.
Fresh blanched prawns was really succulent and juicy.
Braised house-made tofu with fish maw and seaweed.
Juicy Scottish clams / razor clams with garlic and glass noodles.
Patin fish caught from a river in Pahang.
The gourmand hubs bought this RM400 fish from his friend. As the Patin was really huge, we had half the fish that night and brought the other half to our regular restaurant and had it steamed for lunch the next day.
Baked crabs with salted duck’s eggs.
A birthday dinner will never be complete without the longevity noodles dish.
And steamed ‘sau thoe pau’ (pau in the shape of peach) which signifies longevity too.
May God bless my dad and mum with many, many more happy birthdays.
Dad and mum belting out and twisting to the tune of Gangnam Style by Psy. I never knew dad could twist like someone in his 20s though he’s already 73!!
Alycia and Cass made cards for their granny but Drama Queen who has a little Picasso in her decided to paint something on canvas for her granny. And I think her painting is just awesome! Oh, did I also mention that Drama Queen also baked an awesome strawberry gluten-free cake for her granny? I shall write about it in another post.
