My birthday weekend was one long party and when you reach a certain age this can be exhausting. Haha, only joking. Of course I still have the stamina to go all the way and party with the best!
It started already mid-week with the birthday dinner of my friend Evi. She invited us to Mochi, one of the best Asian fusion places in town! We ate our way through everything on the menu and by the time desert came I was all around happy. Happy Birthday once again and great that you are joining the big 4-0!
My own celebrations started on Friday in the office with champagne and cake. Since I made the cake for yours truly, of course I have to you show my creation again. I happened to make a smaller one as well which we devoured on Monday in the office. Cakes never keep for a long time around here.
And while the planned evening with the girls and karaoke fell through, the alternative program happened to be a blast. My friend and I started at the Deli where we got talking to the people at the table next to us. And before I knew what was happening they had ordered me a little birthday cake (a brownie with vanilla ice-cream and not a burger with mashed potatoes; really, people with bad eye sight should just get glasses!)
The brownie broke the ice and we moved our tables together, shared a bottle of wine and later on went dancing (aka standing next to the bar) at the Chaya Fuera. When I was leaving the club I had some trouble finding the exit! I mean what’s the point of hanging floor length curtains in front of walls? It irritates the h*ll out of people who might have tunnel vision at some point during the night, it’s also a bit embarrassing when you see someone looking behind every curtain. So glad it wasn’t me though…
Saturday more partying was happening; it was the weekend and I have a reputation to uphold. But first a visit to my brother’s place where a very bad-tempered midget was working on my head-ache.
So glad that I could spend the afternoon taking a two hour power-nap to be ready for the evening. I was invited to a spring party which was held at the Deli Bluem about which I wrote here. All pictures now are from the hostess Ros who also organized this amazing evening. My friend from Deli Bluem was responsible for the great food though! Here are the two organizers! The evening was lovely and I even got my own raw vegan birthday cake. How is that for a birthday? Three cakes for me and I only had to make own myself. I really have great friends and I love them all!
Before going home I got a bouquet of peonies, half open and smelling lovely. The next day they were already open a bit more and today I took another picture and they are in full bloom! Aren’t they beautiful?
Last but not least on Monday evening I celebrated with my family since my brother, sister and great-cousin have their birthdays all around mine. We went for dinner at the Motto (great place, great food) where I got a rose from my brother’s garden. This rose looked so amazing this morning that I had to take a picture of it in front of another birthday gift which had finally arrived last fall. I wrote about my woes with Infurn already, therefore it is only fair to say that I got my chair in the end and it is beautiful! A really great gift from all of my friends! Yours, Pollybert
PS: Still, don’t order with Infurn! I just got lucky!
