...Two years ago (2007)- I think we celebrated with dinner at Marriott, but all is vague now.
This year, I thought I better keep track because I'm fast forgetting! We had a birthday-getaway at the Merlion City. -Hail Singapore!
The heavy breakfast meant we weren't really up for lunch..so we figured we'd try some snacks.
Here's Green Tea Mochi ice cream- say it with the Cookie Monster tone- cos you can chomp it down really easy. We got ours from Beard Papa's. So addictive!
We ended the day with dinner at Lawry's [again]. This time I took better photos to show you why I clearly have a Lawry's addiction.
First there's the spinning bowl salad, served with chilled plates and forks complete with a waitress doing a rotating dance routine. -serious!
Then, the beef is carved in front of you by a chef, with meat to your liking and cut specifically to either enhance taste, flavour or texture.
For those who just aren't into blood or rare meat, skip now! Here's my beef served with yummy mash and a rich gravy. I kind of feel like a carnivore sometimes.
..and Yorkshire Pudding. Soft, crunchy..just right with gravy.
We nearly always also order a pan of mushrooms because H is a mushroom addict.
So there..this year's birthday was kinda..literally...all about food. I guess next year or the year after and the year after that will most probably be about food too.
