Happy Birthday Father !

This post is so backdated. Must get it up before the in laws birthday this weekend.

My father turned 76 last Saturday. It's always a family affair for us with dinner followed by cakes and birthday songs. I really can't wish for anything else than god granting him good health and happiness.

This is the cake sis and me baked for him. Nice ? or not so nice ? I'm a bit of a retard when it comes to decorating a cake. Not much improvements from the last cake I iced and decorated here. I couldn't even get the words to look nice and presentable. See how the Happy and B'day is so unaligned and retard looking? Sis came to the rescue, scattered the little red sugar hearts there to cover up the flaw. Now, I am seriously thinking of attending cake decorating class !

This year, we had dinner at Restoran Siu Siu at Sg Besi. Nice place. Big, spacious, good food and reasonably priced.

We always book for a table in this little pavilion surrounded by carps.. nice eh ?

Food here is above average for the price charged. If you do come here, I'd highly recommend the river prawns with 'toong fun' in claypot :

soaking in lotsa milk gravy but not very spicy.

very nice when you soak up the gravy with these lovely friend mantou.

Then we went over to sis' place to hang out and have our desert.

Father and Ah Yee, blowing the candles.. and Amber was most excited (as with anybody elses birthday that comes with a cake and lighted candle).

We sing song, blow candles again and again coz somebody important had to blow the candles, although it's not 'HER BIG DAY'...

A slice of the simple cake we baked, no layered icing, just basic chocolate icing over the cake.

Happy Birthday Father ! May you live well and healthy !
