Birthday Bash

Several weeks before my birthday, a group of my friends whom I had been meeting every Wednesday asked me, "What's your favourite food or any special requests on your birthday?"

Knowing that I have tasted almost everything I can think of (which is being cooked in Malaysia), I decided to say, "Something exotic."

So, for the past few weeks I had been 'hinted' with 'scary' proposals like monkey brain, insect sushi, fried grasshoppers, worms and so on. It did make me squirm a little because I don't really like to see it in its original form. I would rather mash them all up and mix in a bowl of porridge.

As the evening was approaching, and given a lot of birthday sms from my friends and colleagues, I got more and more restless worrying that I might be eating insects and monkey brain for dinner.

Fortunately, the dinner this time was a Sri Lankan cuisine. I never tasted that kind of food before too. So, it suites the challenge. Plus, it's something that all of us can enjoy together. Phew...

All in all, it was certainly an enjoyable day and dinner itself (smiling ear to ear).
Thank you!!
