Yan Yan turned three on Sunday. As I had been away for most of the past few weeks, I hadn’t given much thought to the birthday celebration. I even managed to forget about pre-ordering any special cake!

And so, we had a simple family celebration with my clan, and babysitter and her sisters. Hubby suggested nyonya food and we ended up at this inconspicuous and modestly furnished restaurant, recommended by hubby’s friend.
Sisterly love, when they are not fighting over the iPad, that is :-)
The restaurant turned out to be a gem – food was authentically nyonya, and superbly delicious, without making a huge dent in the pocket. This restaurant is definitely a keeper.
Ju hu char, nasi kerabu, tau you gay, beef rendang, ikan gulai tumis, french beans with shrimps, kerabu lemak sayur paku, fried asam prawns, and popiah
The highlight for the children was undoubtedly singing the birthday song and cake cutting after dinner. We had grabbed this chocolate cake from RT Pastry House earlier in the afternoon.
This was what jie-jie gave to mei-mei as her birthday present – a box of modeling clay which jie-jie bought from the school’s bookshop with her pocket money, coz mei-mei loves playing with play dough.
Happy birthday Yan Yan. Mummy hopes you’ll grow up healthy and happy, and be the best that you can be.
