One Year Older

This year, my birthday fell on a public holiday, Deepavali. I took the opportunity to visit my family in Penang and to celebrate the day with them. SIL made me a cheese cake with kiwi topping. She said it's very easy to make. Just mix the flour (the pre-mix type) and whipping cream, put the topping, then freeze. She didn't make the crumbs. It tasted just as good, but we felt that the kiwi topping was a little too sweet to our liking.

XY brought the cake to me (with SIL's help) while singing the birthday song. I have to keep CE's hands away from the cake as he kept wanting to touch it. The kids were very excited and kept looking at the cake. They wanted to blow the candle but I asked them to wait. My brother was still taking our photos. Hubby was missing in action due to nature's call. :D

We left Penang that evening. Reached home almost 9pm. Then went out for dinner. Hubby wanted to buy me a cake since he missed it earlier. But I said just buy sliced cakes will do. Bought Secret Recipe's White Chocolate Macadamia and Carrot Slice but only used the Macadamia cake for another round of birthday song, wish-making, candle-blowing and cake-cutting session. This time he set up the tripod so we managed to take some family photos.
