A Simple Quiet Birthday with the Family

It was my wife’s birthday and I decided to bake a simple butter cake for her instead of buying a cake from the bakery this year. My little daughter helped me to bake this cake. She gets to eat the leftover batter. Daddy joined her in cleaning up the leftover batter too, yummy! Ha ha ha. The cake turned out nice but a bit thin because I used too little flour.

Anyway, the kids finished (sapu habis) all the cake within minutes, right after I have taken it out from the hot oven and my wife had to call for pizza as a backup.

Then, I cooked her favourite food, curry chicken for dinner. I did not use coconut milk for this curry and it turned out as tasty as the one with coconut milk. I tried to make some eggrolls stuffed with vegetables and my kids love it. We had a simple dinner accompanied by some roast duck and salted vegetable soup (Ham Choy Thong).

Pete, Hope your wife like the birthday music in my email. Wah quite like your new 'profile' which you have added "..Financial Consultant in the day, Daddy and Cook for 3 kids at night and weekends!" How about adding "Blogger by nite and vampire after midnite" Haha...Cheers
