victory lap around the sun (my birthday)

So how did I celebrate my victory lap around the sun? Woke up early at 7AM. Yeah, 7AM is early for me. Lately, I've been waking up at 8:15 or 8:30... barely make it to work in time.

When out for dim sum with family and brought along my grandmother also. Haven't seen her in awhile. I think she gets out more than I do.

When home after that, slept of until 3PM. Yes! That's the best part of having your birthday on a weekend. Getting to sleep the afternoon of. I didn't want to wake up until just before dinner but I saw that it was going to rain, so I thought I better leave the house before it starts pouring.

I when to look at kitchen cabinets with Chui Yan. It was a new showroom that was having a sale in Damansara Utama. We're meeting them again tomorrow to get the measurements.

After that, we when jalan-jalan in Pyramid and ended up eating at Zen, a Japanese restaurant. I like the setting and the service there. Not much choice on the noodles part but their sushi's are really good.



I had the cold chosoba noodle. You're supposed to eat it with raw quail egg. Quite gross. I poured it into the bowl of soup and stirred it in.



My birthday I usually have fish, so instead of the normal Chinese steam fish I have at a Chinese restaurant, I opted for sushi instead. Raw fish! Makes you feel like a man, eating raw food... before humans invented fire!


This one is a weird dish. In the menu, it looks like an omelet with Unagi (grilled eel) fillings. It turns out to be a watery omelet. It's sweet and salty at the same time.


California Roll. They all taste the same where ever you buy it from in Malaysia... except for the ones in Carrefour and Tesco, their sushi is awful. This one in Zen is fresh and yummy!

Every birthday I buy something for myself... sort of a reward for surviving another year. I was supposed to get an IPhone but I decided to wait. So instead of getting that, I stopped at Shell to pump gas and I saw the Ferrari toy cars they were selling and in the spur of the moment, I bought one.



I chose the black one because it was the odd one out. I've been playing it on my bed and figuring out if I could film it flying over some obstacles. That would be fun. Toy car for my birthday... if I had a lego set for my birthday, now that would be awsome!

Another 20 minutes left for the day... I think I'll spend the time playing C&C 3 Kane's Wrath!
