Turning on 22…
What a day! Turning on 22 is not an easy thing for me as I experienced serious trauma last year when I stepped myself into my 21st. good thing is that this year I didn’t suffer from serious ‘sick’ but still, there was a minor one.
Date: 4th Jan 08
Venue: Marco’s Pizza
Dress code: casual
Theme: dear Ai Wei’s Birthday
That’s the message I received from Christine with no questioning but just informing me.
So, on Last Friday, my lovely friends a.k.a. Murni gang brought me out for a dinner at Marco’s Pizza. I have longed to eat-in in Marco’s and Christine has planned and brought me over for my birthday celebration. What a thoughtful best-ie she is!
As it was raining cats and dogs on that night, me and Yen were stuck in the traffic and arrived late. As we were still in our traffic, Christine, Chris and Velix took opportunity to order for us. But then… they have come up with lots of food for just the five of us.
Meanwhile, they have the Italian Soda (from left to right) raspberry, vanilla, and passion fruit. The raspberry Italian soda was sourish and refreshing; passion fruit tasted passion and the vanilla fragrant with vanilla. Certainly I like the raspberry flavour.
As for starter, we had the Rosemary Chicken Salad. There were chicken chunks, green veges … honestly, I can’t recall what’s more inside. Simply love the dressing as it went well with the fresh greens.
Here comes their Signature Pizza — Marco’s. It was topped with shredded turkey, ham, country chicken egg, mozzarella and plum tomato sauce on thin crust. Yumz. It was so cheesy-licious and crunchy! This definitely has our votes! Another a Must to order if you come here!!
Next, the Four Seasons (Chef Choices) and there were 4 choices of toppings in one pizza. We had red and green peppers, pineapple (should be Hawaiian type), mushroom and seafood flavour.
Also, Spaghetti Carbonara came with traditional creamy pasta with beef bacon, garlic, and egg and parmesan cheese. Oh-oh… there were beef bacon in the carbonara. Me and Yen couldn’t take this.
La-la-la… candle-blowing time arrived. They have prepared me slices of cakes. (ps. Christine, I can know the name for both cakes? I have forgotten :P)
Thanks dears. I finally could blow off candle. Let me count… there are about 4 years I have neither cakes nor candle blowing session on my birthday. There were joys, cheerfulness, gladness, delight on my special day and this special year!
Thanks, thanks, thanks and million thanks to Christine, Yen, Chris, Velix and Khee (who are now in India) for the wonderful present for me. I love it very muchie and I will treasure it (tak sampai hati to use it. How?!) Love you guys a lot and thanks for being with me on this day and being with me all the time. Muacks! ~
