Happy 57th Birthday mom !!

We FINALLY celebrated our mom's 57th b'day which falls on the last deepavali day.....phew, yes u read it correctly...... that was quite some time!! I got very frustrated & agitated each time little 'big day' like this approached! Almost everytime (if not all) would take us siblings so long to decide A DAY to gather for a family dinner!
For information, i have 5 (all girls) siblings with only the youngest one unmarried. Yeah, it means everyone has their own family....own schedule, own career, children's schedule & etc etc that became factors of consideration in compromising a day for our dear mom.........BUT i believe i wasn't wrong to say that it's only A DAY in a year (365 days).....or maybe 2 days in a year (to include dad) so what makes it so difficult to compromise???? A question that only my other sisters could answer.........
Excuses that caused the delay: concert to attend, outstation, overseas, friend's wedding & etc etc.....arghhh !!

Having said all, i still like to believe we are all good daughters that wish to celebrate our dear mom's birthday indefinitely..........and i'm gonna count it out here....year by year !!

H A P P Y 5 7 TH B I R T H D A Y MI...................and many more to come !!!

YET .............The above are not the complete headcount......my younger sister was in Genting HL to celebrate her girlfriend (final singlehood day) as her gf was due to marry the following day. And then my 4th sister's (in blue stripe) hubby was not there too bcoz he has company dinner to attend........sigh sigh sigh !!!

We had our dinner at the new Oriental Pavillion restaurant in Jaya33, Section 14 PJ. Very nice ambiance to follow the rocketed price of the food. There were fewer set menu as compared to the old restaurant. Can you imagine the package set of RM598++ came without sharks fin soup??? tsk tsk tsk....that was terrible. As sharks fin was mom's favourite, we were left with no choice but the next available package at RM798++ ...........wow.....pricey or not??
Surely pricey but came with quality too of course..............see below was the starter dish...not everyone could appreciate it as it was all 'cold' !!
CLOSER UP view

Needless to mention, the sharks fin soup was superb !!

Since we have 9 adults + 5 kids, some additional dishes were ordered......
With the 5 & 10% service/tax charges, peanuts, warm water at RM1 per glass & etc....the final total bills came to a RM1k++ !!!! But once a year & shared by so many of us....never mind lar !!
