Mum's birthday is mostly celebrated quite lavishly with full course chinese dinners and with lots of friends, family and her opera students jamboree-ing with her.
But this year she opted for quiet cosy dinners, divisively attended with different smaller groups of people. While this afternoon she met my sister for lunch, I decided to buy her dinner at a nearby chinese restaurant called 福臨門 (Fu Lin Men) since I had to rush back for pole classes right after. My niece did not turn up due to school work load so I asked my 2 other team mates over and there were in total 5 of us.
Throughout the one and half hours we were there, we were the ONLY patrons in the restaurant, not kidding. We enjoyed the best service ever, undivided attention from the restaurant crew and when it was time to light the candles and sing happy birthday, we had the restaurant entourage singing along!
