Birthday 2015 Part 2: Just Acia + D' Good Cafe + Japanese Gourmet Town

Monday 27/7/15

Met up with GF on a Monday afternoon for lunch at Just Acia, our usual hangout place. We loved coming back here for our meal because of the affordable set meal that comes with free flow of drink and ice-cream.

GF ordered a gyoza for sharing, the Japanese dumplings tasted normal. Dipped it with the broth to enhance the flavour.

Just Acia has a different promotion menu that is only available for lunch. Both of us ordered the same set - Fried Chicken Ramen.

The ramen tasted delicious. 

And the chicken was crispy good.  Makes me love coming back.

Thanks GF for the delicious lunch treat and the birthday pressie. Most of all, thanks for making time to just have a simple meal with me before your Japan trip. I appreciate it very much. Though the time we are meeting up one another is getting lesser and lesser, it no longer that frequent as before, there was no awkwardness between us even we never seen each other for a long time. Cheers to our 4 years of friendship, may our friendship stay strong forever.

Happy birthday to me!
Took leave off to laze around and give myself a break from the never-ending work. For most of my life, birthday has never been a big deal to me since teenage. Remember when I was young, my mum will always  bought me a cake. When I grew older (during Secondary School time), I told my mum not to buy me cake, it's a waste of money because we couldn't finish it all. So instead of cake, she will make me Chinese red eggs (红鸡蛋). So to me, birthday is usually just another day.

How did I spent my birthday?

First thing in the morning, I accompanied my mum to see chiropractic doctor at Wellness For Life. My mum went for a spinal checkup because she has been experiencing backpain and numbness in her legs caused by nerves systems. She has to go for their treatment for 36 sessions which cost $85 per session.

Went back home and catch a few episodes of 武媚娘传奇 before heading out again.
Met up with KP at Holland Village at 2.30pm for cafe hopping.

Kai Pin brought me to D' Good Cafe for afternoon tea.

Was really surprised to see the cafe so crowded during a weekday afternoon. It was crowded with students and teenagers. It was full house on level 2 so we went up to level 3.

I got a gigantic size of chocolate chip frappuccino that could be shared among 6-8 pax.
Our drink was attracting too much attention. The table besides us, the 3 of them took turn to secretly take photo of the drink. Think I don't know meh?
Onlookers were astonished when passed by our table, one girl even spueaked "Omg!"
Aww, I just want to shy away from the crowds to enjoy our meal.

Oh yeah, just to share with you this, you can get this gigantic frappuccino of your choice on your actual birthday. Just flash your identification card to the staff will do.

Sea Salt Caramel Cheesecake. It was appetizing, perfect to go with coffee.

We also ordered a buttermilk bread bite-sized in hazelnut flavour, dipped it in the fresh milk. A simple snack to enjoy with.

We spent the afternoon, enjoying the cakes and trying our best to drink as much as we can. We could only cleared half the glass.

Thanks cousin for the afternoon tea treat and also take leave to accompany me. I always feel appreciated when people make time and effort for me. 

Friday 31/7/15

Another round of birthday dinner with my awesome poly peers. So happy to see them again. I always love meeting them because they are only brunch of people who never use their phone (to surf net or login to social media accounts) when we have our meal because we have neverending topics to chat till we don't have time to take out our phone to check. Actually using phone can be quite disturbing, when one started to use their phone, I started to take out my phone too as I cannot stand the silence or staring at blank space like a idiot. Then both of us will be very absorbed using our phone and stopped talking. I'm glad that I found friends who are not like that.

I suggested to have dinner at Japanese Gourmet Town because they have dinner promotion which include a ramen, drinks and side dish. 

The four of us opted for fried toufu, baby octopus, takoyaki and gyoza.

I opted for Miso Buta Shabu Ramen which was non-spicy. I was having cough so I decided to abandon my plan of having my usual pork curry ramen.

Dinner will never be complete without dessert. 
We went ice-cream indulgence at cold stone creamery. Grace knows me so well, she guessed that I will choose the mint chocolate chip flavour. Bingo!
We only left the place when the staff chased us off. How I wish the night will be longer. Hope to see you guys soon again.

Oops, realised we haven't took our mandatory group photo after Grace left.

Okay, adding her back.

Thanks Chan Lin, Maggie and Grace for the dinner treat. Thanks Maggie for the birthday gift, I love it very much. Thanks Chan Lin for the ice-cream treat. So glad to have you guys in my life, I really really appreciate it, made me feel so loved (:

Thanks everyone for remembering my birthday and those that sent your wishes to me through Facebook, whatapps and call. Love you guys ♥
