We celebrated Jirene’s eleventh birthday last Saturday, which was a day after her actual birthday. We had a splendid dinner at Gen Japanese Restaurant in the Legend Hotel. Haven’t gone back there in ages! Our relatives and cousins from my mum’s side were there for the dinner too. It was sort of a family dinner gathering that happened to be in conjunction with Jirene’s birthday.
The food was overall pretty good. We liked the tepanyaki spot where we’d choose seafood or beef and mushrooms and the chef will stir-fry everything in black pepper sauce. The kiddoes like my sisters didn’t eat much though. What a waste. They were too busy playing with their cousins!
At the end of the dinner (our family was the last of the last diners to leave!) I still felt that I haven’t had enough. And as it is, everyone was already teasing me for taking so many rounds. :’D Seriously, I still felt I didn’t eat my money’s worth! Maybe it’s because I was too distracted taking pictures of them and all. Ahahaha.
And of course, there's always pictures for a treat. :P So here are the pictures we took…
Soba noodles in the glass; raw octopus slices and pickled ginger with wasabi.
The Others. (Have you watched the horror movie entitled "The Others"? Hahaha. Just a passing thought.)
The three of us and my mum.
This is so funny! One of the waiters who offered to take a shot for us wanted us to pose like we were at some goofy photoshoot. So we ended up with this. Supposedly a "natural" shot. *Rolls eyes. Ahahahahah.
I wanted Janna to take this shot with the glass dome above, but she didn't get down low enough I guess.
Jirene seemed the best imitator, so I asked her to pose again. Alone. Hahaha.
And yes, this is the last picture. :P
Happy Birthday Jirene ;)
