Turning 24 : Part 1

10 Apr

Birthdays spent in Melbourne has always been a small thing. Just dinner with Baby and meet up with some close friends after for drinks! But this year, it’s a little different. Cause baby had to work in the evening and by the time he finishes it would be too late to have a proper dinner, we had lunch instead! Then had dinner and drinks with the close friends! (: In other words, I had a super awesome day with the company of all my good friends! hehe so the happiest girl this birthday, is ME!

so as not to drown you all with photos of food and make you all super hungry. I’ve decided to split my celebrations into two posts! hehe

the first place : Shoya

we revisited this place after we celebrated my 22nd birthday (: a place full of memories! Good one indeed. and if you are craving for good japanese food, this is it. The best place to go! hehe and boy was I glad we did.

we ordered the set lunch and I love how they give small portions of everything. but at the end of the meal, we were stuffed! but very happy-stuffed. haha

so this was what we had in our set lunch

our appetizer is cabbage and crab meat with vinegar. It’s really good! The sourish taste of the appetizer just makes us look forward to filling our tummy up! hehe as my mum would say, it’s very 开胃! hehe first dish, and we were already singing their praises. haha Can you imagine how happy we were once the whole meal was over? (:

and what’s a japanese meal without chawanmushi? hehe

and to go with our meal, hot sakae of course. (:

and the sashimi course is something I look forward to everytime we come here. So fresh and good. And hidden behind the cucumber is my favourite : raw scallop! LOVE IT! hehe I learnt my dearest baby and left the best for last!

sushi! (: hehe fresh and no doubt awesome. hehe

their signature : mushroom and quail egg tempura with crab and scallop wrapped in filo pastry. this made both of us smile after we bite into it, especially the filo pastry bit. SO GOOD! hehe

wanna take a closer look at the scallop and crab wrapped in filo pastry?

sure! (: hehe

fried rice and miso soup!

we being SUPER HAPPY! hehe (: and you know why? cause we got our main meal : wagyu beef with truffle sauce !

how good does this look? it tastes as good as how it looks or even better! hehe the beef was tender, the flavours just explodes in your mouth. Then the aftermath is just, wide grins on our face! hehe

Next stop : White Rabbit Record Bar

There’s this cosy little place in Kensington Town and I have been wanting to try it for the longest time! So I decided to head there and give their food a try, as well as enjoy the ambience and company (:

and what’s so special about this place? It’s a bar and cafe filled with old records! It’s so cute! I loved it immediately after stepping foot into the place.

records made into lights

records as a decor

and they also sell old records for you to purchase! super cute shop! hehe (:

the food was yummy, the service was awesome! By the time baby got here, the boss said the kitchen was closed. but when she realised he was going to drink on an empty stomach, she said she felt bad and asked him to order a sandwich, she would make it her him! We decided that we were going to make that our usual hanging out spot! hehe it’s like a tango’s in Melbourne hehe

thanks babe for coming early! (:

and thank you Cheok and Lyn for coming! (:

and thank you you two love birds! (:

and of course, thank you baby boy (: hehe especially cause you surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!

made my night (: I love you! hehe

Thank you everyone for making time to celebrate this special day with me! (:

crazy crazy us (: love ya babe!
