I turned 26 on the 16th of Dec. Thanks a lot for all your well wishes, via sms, facebook, email, cards etc. Really appreciate them a lot! Makes me feel so loved! :)
Well, this year I threw a high tea celebration on Sunday. I realized only later that its considered "bad luck" to celebrate your birthday in advance. Well, since I´m not superstitious, it didn´t bother me much, except that ppl who came for my bday on Sunday (the Germans) didn´t wish me happy birthday! They just said that its not bday yet, so they were not supposed to wish me happy bday. That´s ok! Its the thought that counts. :) This was the first time that I made almost everything by myself! Other than some food from my in-laws and a friend of mine, all the other stuff was made by myself!
Right: Miri and I. She´s got another 2 more mths in Germany before moving back to Bolivia to get married! I was so happy that the Singaporeans enjoyed the food too! Boy, in my excitement abt the party, I didn´t manage to snap photos of the food before ppl started eating! So yah, only photos of half-eaten food.....All in all, we had Singapore curry puffs (with potatoes, chicken and egg), grilled prawns skewers, mixed berry muffins, konnyaku jelly, cheesecake, apple cake, tiramisu, sushi, cheese crackers with fresh cheese mix, brownies etc. My guests were stuffed! I for one, realized that I really like the idea of high tea! You meet up with people earlier, there´s no need for carbohydrates, you get to eat everything in bite-sized pieces and you get to still spend a quiet evening before a Monday morn! This was also the first time that I tried to incorporate western and Asian stuff. So happy that my friends are "exotic" enough, to enjoy an exotic mix of food! No photos of the curry puff though!
