Good Weekend

Just some updates.

It was Mr S's birthday yesterday (Saturday).


My sons and I made him a birthday card because I'm not feeling too well yet and wasn't in the mood to drive and spend time finding a ready-made card in the shops. Although it was a simple card - we had a lot of fun making it.



My eldest did all the writing, prompted by myself. And my youngest, not to be left out, wanted to draw a picture at the side, with his favourite colour tip pen - the usual picture of himself of course, holding a gun to shoot any available T-Rex on sight.

Other than that, I tried baking a cheesecake for Mr S's birthday which is still in the fridge today, uncut and uneaten, because Mr S has been busy with his studies and doing his mock exams on that day and so, we decided to cut the cake when he is freer, hopefully today.

But we had a sort of celebration anyway. A good friend of mine is here in London on a business trip and he wanted to belanja us makan at the Tokyo Diner in Leicester Square so we went today (coincidentally it is also Father's Day today) and I got to satisfy my eternal craving for sushi and Japanese food - it has been a long two years since I had them last! Then we moved to a coffee shop (no pics though) nearby to have some cakes and coffee - just so that we could sit down and talk some more...

Been a long time since I had such a pleasant and relaxing time talking with an old friend.

Wah! Bento set yang kat depan Mama tu besar semacam je! Huhuhuu awal ader appetite yang sungguh besar!

I like sushi too! I have to have it every week. Last time it used to be three times a week. Beli kat sushi king atau jusco je, yang mahal-mahal of course la tak mampu.
