Mum: I'm 5! Me: =.=

Saturday, September 13

12/09/08 was my Mum's **th birthday. yes! it was yesterday.
Let me tell you, the usual saying of females being very discreet with their birthday as they age a year older every year is downright almost 100% true. And my Mum is not excluded from this. She can be so childish at times that I can even forget how old is she already. LOL.

Kay kay, before you judge me. Let me clarify that I'm very bad with numbers. Not in a calculative sense per se but remembering numbers! I remember names better than numbers. But sometimes- somewhat sad to say - numbers that I do not wish to remember, I actually remember them clearly! Well, they say when something is so significant to you, you'll just remember. NOT that my Mum's age ain't significant to me but ... OKAY! I give up in clarifying and explaining myself.

Conclusion: I'm a horrible daughter...yada yada...punish me already.

Back to my point!!!!
So to confirm myself, I asked her how old is she now. She kept doing that "twinkle twinkle" gesture with her 5 fingers.


So I went:

"If you're 5 this year, I'm 1!"
(inside joke, if I explain any further, you'll find out how old is she - be a little sensitive for this lady =P )

Sorry honey, it's the rule of life. People grow older, not younger every year. If we were to grow younger every year, we'll start walking upside down.

Moving along, we brought her out for dinner (courtesy of Dad) to Milwaukee steakhouse to celebrate her growing old younger! ^^

Love the ambiance there but for a person who dislikes using flash when snapping photos - this lighting is not camera-friendly. WHATEVER! I still stubbornly stuck to no-flash mode. Hence, the not so nice & clear photos, except for a few later on.

Let me give you the gist of how it looks like:

All over the ceiling, star-shaped dim lights give a sensible vision for customers & workers alike.

Collectibles displayed nearby our table

Through the huge aquarium, we can see the glasses and pitches aligned. We drank from these.

The mini semi-cave-like deco with a small stream and a mini bridge at the far end. It was beside out table as well. Too bad no tiny fishes.
Kuno Erisha went ga-ga over fake ducks!!! =.=

After quite sometime of browsing the menu, we all made our order. Let me tell you that I'm NOT the one who had difficulty choosing what to eat here OK. I know I'm so indecisive most of the time but this time I knew what I felt like eating. It was the birthday baby that was so indecisive.
Now I know where I get the indecisive trait from!

From top left; going clockwise: Spaghetti Vongule (cooked with olive oil and clams), large orange juice, spaghetti marinara (seafood) with red sauce & small carrot juice.

Above is the regular fish & chips and below here is the photo of my marinara's single oyster.

Double view of my Mum's Baked Fillet of Fish with Mornay. (cheesssseeee) Me love this one!

Well, I hope mummy dearest had a great dinner and enjoyed the company of your family with you on your special day =)

Snap Snap time:

And after 3 times of trying to get a family photo with timer onset, the first attempt was by far the chosen one instead. =.=
My body very senget because after putting the camera on 10sec mode, i rushed and sat beside my sister just in time to smile and set hair nicely LOL
