An Extra Special Day

On Tuesday, the kids were very excited, particularly XY. She was waiting anxiously for PaPa to come back (from work) with the cake. Kids love to blow candles, cut cakes and eat them. That's why PaPa bought a whole cake. When they were younger, we bought just a few slices of Secret Recipe cakes for our (the adults) birthday because we can't finish a whole cake. Now a small cake would be gone by the next day. The kids can't wait to blow the candle but PaPa was still taking pictures and fixing the tripod. hehehe

We had dinner at home. PaPa has already treated us to a buffet lunch at Sun & Surf Café, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa on Sunday. As a Citibank credit card holder, you get 40% discount (offer valid till 1st Nov). The buffet spread is just normal. I chose this restaurant because it stated "kids' mini buffet and chocolate fountain" in the website. The kids had never "experienced" a chocolate fountain. But it turned out to be a big disappointment (to me, that is. The kids didn't know about it, so no expectation). It was just a big pot of chocolate, for dipping marshmallows and fruits. What the kids enjoyed most are the pumpkin soup, marshmallows (even without chocolate dipping) and ice-cream.

Although it wasn't much of a celebration, this year was extra special. I was really blessed coz I received lots of wishes via SMS, phone call, instant messaging, e-mail and Facebook on the actual day. XY wished me many times and she tried really hard to be a good girl (started days before) coz that was the present I wanted. :-) Didi wished me when asked to and he's very good at singing the birthday song. CH (my nephew) sang to me the birthday song (without a cake) when I was at his house for lunch. It was a truly special day. No surprises from hubby this year but he got me a lovely card and a facial treatment package. What more can a girl ask for? *happy smile*

Happy Belated Birthday to you.

Sometimes I do prefer simple celebration, because we can spend more time with the family.

May I know what is the nett price of buffet at Sun & Surf? I thought to bring my relatives there in next month.
How's the food? I have been there twice many years ago and everything was nice and delicious.
Do you recommend for me to go again?

Happy birthday!~

slavemom said...

Dear frens, tq so much for ur b'day wishes. :)

Mummy Gwen, sure, but I'm not vy active in FB. Btw, wat's ur ID?

Olive, I was contemplating if I shld sign up for the pkg (quite worth it if u use their prods n go for reg facial), so hubs offered it as a b'day gift. :)

Jac, he dunno wat to get for me. And so happen I was thinking abt signing up, so he offer loh. U think he dare to hint meh? hahaha

Joanne, the offer for Citibank credit card mbrs over edi (till 1 Nov). U can chk out their buffets HERE. The food is not really great. Hubs said it's nicer in Atrium Café than Sun & Surf. If there's no disc, not really worth it, I guess. I'm sure there're better buffets in KL.

Denesa said...

Lemonjude said...

Health Freak Mommy said...

I hope I'm not too late in wishing you happy birthday. No need pressie from hubby coz he had already bought you a new camera recently right? Was the tiramisu cake from SR good or jelak?

slavemom said...

Tqvm for the b'day wishes.

Shireen, the camera not considered an official gift. hahaha Anyway, I'm not the oni one using it. :p
As for the cake, it's from King's. The 0.5kg cake not jelak at all, vy soft n nice.
