Pre-birthday dinner

 Floral dress: Melody (local boutique)
Bangles: Blogshop
*NEW* camera: Samsung EX1

Ah, the past week has been a relatively busy one for me. Not just with the usual Uni workload, but a couple of other side projects, too. On top of that, I've also been busy celebrating my birthday! Whee! Expect a couple of updates within the next few days about that :)

Had a pre-birthday dinner with some of my classmates on Thursday. I chose a "Latin, Italian and Spanish" restaurant for a wider selection, but ALL of us ended up ordering a variety of pasta. I love Italian food!!...and Malaysian and Japanese and Chinese and Thai...I guess I just love FOOD! Yums!

My friends surprised me with a beautiful Chinese fruit cake which they ordered from a local Chinese bakery. A Chinese fruit cake is very different from a er, normal fruit cake; from the texture of the cake right to the type of fruits used. This one's a fluffy chiffon cake with fruits cleverly inserted in between the layers and decorated with whipped cream and thin slices of fresh fruit on top. It was heavenly!

Sorry I haven't been replying to comments in my previous post, but thank you for leaving such lovely and sincere comments. I really appreciate it and I do read every single one of them. I've also got a bit of catching up to do on some of my favourite blogs this weekend so I better start now.


  1. You look lovely. Happy birthday :)

  2. Happy birthday dear! Hope you had a blast... Hmm is it “had” or “having”? Are you still celebrating? Anyway, I know what kinda fruit cake you’re talking about but I didn’t know that there’s a difference until you describe it. I lovethat kinda birthday fruit cake with all the peaches and kiwi and strawberries. The cake is usually yellow, light and fluffy with cream or jelly. I guess when you meant non-Chinese fruit cake, you were referring to those heavy pound fruit cakes right?

  3. Happy birthday!

    Oh, food. :o
    Me want.

  4. Happy birthday, your dress is gorgeous

  5. Happy birthday to youuuu~!!! ^^ i really like the back of your dress =D looks cuteeee !!

  6. Michelle May: Thank youuu x

    Jo: Thanks! It's "had" now, celebrations are over birthday was actually on Friday.
    Precisely! You're right about the cake. Chinese fruit cakes are yums, aren't they? And it counts towards our 5-a day, too haha *completely ignores the calorie count*
