Mom’s birthday

April 6 was mom’s 73rd birthday and we celebrated it with a family dinner as we always do.

There was dad and mom, Rehana and me, sister Carol, her hubby Tze Foong, children, Aaron and Arielle, mom-in-law and nanny Moon.

Mom decided on Vietnamese for a change. Excellent choice, mom!

Carol chose a quiet and cosy restaurant aptly named “Vietnam Kitchen”.

I love the use of lemongrass, basil and other herbs in Vietnamese cooking. They add so much flavor to their cuisine. The stir-fried beef was my favorite. I guess everyone enjoyed the deep-fried fish since they ordered and finished a second plate of it.

Rehana enjoyed her drink, which was a blend of avocado and red beans. I know. It didn’t seem right to me too at first, but she loves avocado. Turned out well though. It was creamy and yummy.

Ended the evening with mom blowing off the candles on her birthday cake. It was a coffee cake with chocolate chunks on top.

I would have taken more photos but was too busy enjoying my meal. Lol!

Our thanks go to Carol and Tze Foong for a lovely evening.¬†Here’s to many more birthdays, mom!
