Aileen's Birthday


Celebrated Aileen’s birthday over a simple family dinner tonight.

It was her birthday yesterday but due to an examination earlier today, we had to postpone the mini celebration. Despite all, we had cake yesterday. A brownie cake in fact.
Went to this Chinese restaurant called Mayim. It is rather like Crystal Jade, with the La Mian (拉面), Xiao Long Bao (小笼包) fare. But the menu has other dishes like Fried Tofu and Crispy Soft Shell crab. Service was prompt and the staff was efficient yet polite. Not bad at all. The floor manager even has this walkie talkie to communicate with the kitchen crew.
In all, it was an enjoyable meal.

Happy 22nd Birthday, dear sister! Can don’t bully me anymore? Time to move on and pick on victims your own size (points innocently in Samuel’s direction). Alright, shan’t tease you further.
What’s a photo taking session without 1 corny shot???

Ivy: More Kimchi?
Aileen: Er...My stomach feels queasy. Think I need a paper bag!

By the way, this restaurant serves kimchi (泡菜) as hors d'oeuvre. So weird. Isn't it serving Chinese cuisine???
It’s not too spicy and makes a great appetizer. They must think it’s good enough to bottle it and sell it at $3 a piece.
