Of beggar chicken and birthday cake

The title itself tells that it was a day where I spent eating beggar chicken and birthday cake! Hahahahhaha. Of course that's not all, let's go down into memory lane with me to see what an amazing day it was.

My sister and I were super eager to try out this new restaurant opened in our residential area, so we woke up early just to try out their breakfast! I was still sleepy and I just freshened up and headed out. Hahahhahahahhaha.

Complete bare face, messy hair and with my nerdy spect. 

My youngest sis!!! 

And tadaaaaaa....
It's just Burger King! *laughs*
But heyyyy it's my first time trying out their breakkie! :D

And then we all got ready before afternoon and headed out for beggar chicken! It's actually a famous chinese cuisine. We went there last year without making any reservation hence we didn't get to eat it. Anyways, due to some misunderstandings, lol, I thought my dad wanted to try it out, so I made a reservation a few days ahead. LOL!

It took us about an hour and half to get to that place. It's on some hill, somewhere near Broga hill i suppose. Hahahhahahah. No. I am usually not this bad when it comes to remembering places and route, but I kept getting confused between this place and another! *laughs*

Me and le lawyer.

The food pictures below are gonna amaze you. No. I lied. I believe these photos will not even fascinate you. But still I decided to show it. Because somehow, I as a normal human, do eat normal food. LOL!

 This is the famous beggar chicken!
They said this was how beggar in the past ate chicken! LOL!
But of course this is improvised version! LOL.

 This is how it looks like underneath all the wrapping! 

And this fish....
Not fish...
They are fishcakes! LOL!
These are among the famous dishes! We did ordered some other food.
But since those were just really normal food I didn't take photo of them.

So after our meal, we went around the town... Stopped by an old palace which didn't open for viewing! LOL.

We then decided to go to Paradigm Mall! My mum had been craving for Coffee Bean and I was eager to try out their Christmas limited edition beverages so le Birthday girl treated everyone! 

 I tried their Red Velvet hot cocoa and it's really delicious!!!!
Hot peppermint chocolate is perfect for mint and chocolate lovers! 
Since I am a huge fan of this combination, it's definitely a yayyyyy!!
Last but not least, Toffee Nut Latte. My mum loves it!
The other one Green Tea is specially for my dad! LOL! 

Me and le Mum!

We happily did our shopping in the mall and had really good time there. When the sun decided to dismiss Himself, we headed to the bakery to collect my Birthday cake! Birthday celebration can never be complete without blowing the flame off the candles! 

Happy 22nd Birthday to me!!!

I have another two more posts about my birthday! Hopefully reading it gives joy as much as I am enjoying it.

I am feeling 22 birthday celebration @ La Risata

Heyyyyyy there!!! I am sure all of you have probably already known that I had a blast! I dare say it's the best birthday I have ever had yet. It's wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than my 21st Birthday! So I guess celebrating with the right person is definitely the most important criteria of making a birthday celebration memorable! Even though I only received one birthday present this year compared to last year which I received a lot, but I am somehow, truly happy this year!

My birthday falls on Monday this year, thus I celebrated my birthday in advance with my family.

For getting me this new dress for my birthday celebration! :D

I have been wanting to dine at this Italian cuisine restaurant since long time ago! We even decided to dine there for Father's day celebration but ended up eating at Victoria Station instead because we failed to find the restaurant! This time we were really determined, so I called for reservation a few days ahead!

These are random candid shots taken by my sis when we were doing some shopping! LOL!

Then with the help of Waze and all sorts of GPS or satellite or whatsoever apps we have on different phone, we tried to locate this restaurant.... And we failed again and again and again and again. LOL! Almost gave up, and we simply took a turn and we found it! HAHAHAHAHHAHHHAHA!

So, it's time for the reveal...... The restaurant was....

Can you spot the red curtain??? That's where our seats were! Hahahahahhaha! I like that place though it's far behind, but we have our own privacy! :D

Warning.... The content below are full of food and it may make your gastric acid secretion increase! Hahahahahahhahahah! 

 Complimentary bread with Olive in olive oil. 
YUMSSS!!! I always love complementary bread. LOL.

This mocktail is the hit of November! But I forgot the name. >_<

Passion fruit Soda!!! :D

 This pumpkin soup is sooo rich and creamy in texture.
I am a sucker for western soup.
I literally tasted heaven on my tongue as the creamy texture glide through my tongue.
The pumpkin and the cream compliment each other very well.
Pumpkin is sweet in nature.
The salty taste of the cream toned it down to perfection. 

 Mushroom soup!
Although it looks like just another normal mushroom soup, 
it's however, hands down,
the best I have ever had yet.
It's really thick! :D

 Seafood something I can't remember its name!
But this is really tasty as the paste is made from tomatoes, 
you would feel as if you were eating a tomato!
It's that good and I am not even lying. 
And of course the seafood were fresh and huge! :D

 This was the first pizza! 
We ordered two pizza in total but I totally forgot to snap the second one.
The crust is just heaven. 
I like the way they baked it to perfection.
It's crispy on the outside yet soft and chewy in the inside.
And of course the toppings were incredibly good! 

 I am a huge fan of lamb!!!! 
Whenever I see lamb, I will definitely go for it!
Lamb can be quite difficult to eat sometimes, 
but this was just fine!
Maybe it's because I was eating this fatty part, which makes chewing less tiring! 
But overall, this is pretty tasty! And the portion was really huge! 

It comes with mashed potatoes beneath it.

 Pan Grilled Salmon! 
If you are a huge fan of Salmon, 
no doubt you're gonna love this!
They didn't overdo it and managed to keep the moisture of the salmon.
It's also healthy as it comes with vegetables! :D

 These dumplings were among the special dishes for the month of November! 

 This fish is called some redbull eye? Hahahhahahaha! Can't remember!
It's really tasty but for someone like me who can't really pick out the bones of the fish, 
it's not a wise choice to eat this!

Creamy, milky, and the fettuccine were nicely cooked!
It's really thick and the taste is just really perfect!

And many were really curious about my first birthday cake..... Heeeee...

It is..... *drum roll* Sicilian Bomb!

 This is how it was served originally!
It's meringue on the outside!
And then the waiter lighted up a cup of alcohol 
and poured it over the cake!
 "Happy Birthday to you, 
Happy Birthday to you, 
Happy Birthday to Jessica... 
Happy Birthday to you!"

The light would go off after sometime, and it's time for tasting!!!
I am really very impressed with the taste of it!
It's meringue, covering a layer of sponge cake which beneath it was cheese cake!
It's lemon flavoured cake!
The zesty neutralised the bitterness the alcohol brought
and the combination was match made in heaven. LOL!

It was a very very very filling dinner! And we all went home with a kg or two extra! Hahahahahhahahah!
My youngest sis!

My younger sis!

Le Birthday Queen! :P

Things that cheer me up!

I rarely talk about the things that make me happy anymore. It's not because I am no longer happy. lol. It's because there are too many things in my life that makes me happy, and it would take me forever to list them out. However, I just had to mention these few things, which make me feel extraordinarily happy. :D

Let's get straight to the point.... Because I am too busy these days I couldn't even find time to read a book.

This blue crystals bracelet which are given to me by my research supervisor. :D
I could still recall the first time we met, 
she was so excited to see me wearing the exact pink crystals as hers!
We both reeled in joy a little. *laugh*
And since that day we found ourselves to so many common interest!
One day she brought this out to meet me when we were discussing on the method of my research,
I was so shy to receive such an expensive gift from her,
but she told me a sentence, which echoes in my head every time I think of her.
She said: She think she and I are fated to meet,
 and it's hard to meet someone who share so many things in common!
To me, she is more than just a supervisor.
She came and worked with me every night and we would talk about all the things in life.
She is like a friend to me, sometimes like a sister.
I am so grateful to have her as my supervisor. :)

This Yam layered cake which is packed nicely in a box with a knife on the box.
Mummy and sis came home with this box and shouted:
Come and blow candles for your birthday already.
I was confused and I walked to the kitchen,
when I was all ready,
 both of them were laughing hard.
They really like to trick me.

Because I can't resist anything that has heart shape in it!
This is a cupcake prepared for us by our mentor!
I am ashamed to say that, 
this was my first time joining an mentoring activity after so long.
I guess I should stop being anti-social,
and stop feeling awkward in a crowd. 

A simple yet uber sweet 3 course luncheon prepared by my dear Winnie!
She will never forget to bring this dessert to me whenever she has it at home!
She is just so sweeeeeeettttt that I became diabetic! *laugh*
She knew I was feeling down for the past week, so she gave me this awesome chocolate stick biscuit!
But she also knew I was sick,
so she asked me to keep it till I am recover. 
I feel so blessed!
She always keep me accompanied in the campus.
She would always make time for me no matter how busy she is.
Words cant describe how thankful I am to have you, 
but I want you to know I love you dearly! :)

Cheese baked rice!
Because this was my dinner for today!
I am a huge fan of cheese!
My honey Vivienne is just so talented.
It's even mouthwatering from the picture,
and when you taste it,
I swear you would just faint in happiness. *laugh*
Everyone in my house wanted to eat it and I had to share it with them!
Thanks for being so sweeeeettttttttttt!!
Although I tell you everyday I love you much, 
I still have to tell you I LOVE YOU SO FREAKING MUCH! 

Today, all of a sudden, I feel soooooo touched having these awesome babes in my life.
Ahhhhhhh! Even just typing it out would put me in tears.
There was a time, where I always feel very lonely,
but now.... 
I am not lonely at all.
And they always pamper me, in so many ways.
I must have done something really good in my past life to deserve them now!
