Not the most outgoing and social person, I have only few but close friends, all of whom I love dearly. Despite this fast-shooting mouth that I have that could easily offend anybody unfamiliar with me, these are people who forgive and forget. It is also quite unbelievable how I got to know some of these people, not that it matters, really.
So last month was my birthday month and of course, I got quite a fair number of yummy birthday treats from the friends. The one I was caught off guard was planned by a couple of my foodie friends, Jooone & Superfinefeline. I had thought it was just a casual lunch get-together to fill up on delicious sushi from Tatsuya.
The sushi bento (S$26.80) was filling all right. Generous slabs of fish over seasoned Japanese rice made the most delicious and perfect lunch for me. I was a happy camper and totally satisfied with just that, but being a bento, I had to deal with the accompanying chawanmushi and mixed tempura. The steamed egg was pretty tasty, remembering it to be sparse (no fillings at all) but silky and flavourful. But I had much better tempura but I was not expect Tenshin standards here.
Anyway, just when I was prepared to leave, the surprise birthday cake appeared. It was one of my personal favourites - Le Royale, from Canele. I don't care if it was by sheer chance or pure luck, but I prefer to believe the friends do know me! The cake suffered just a little from the warm temperature, but nonetheless, still very decadent and extra special, knowing it was a surprise planned for me.
So babes, thank you once again, for that Sunday, and more importantly, for being there.
