I had the most delightful of birthday celebrations with my friends this weekend. We had a grand dinner at a Korean restaurant with half of the table having BBQ and the other half having hot pot. In between was a grand helping of smoked salmon salad, ahi tuna salad, jellyfish salad (!), seafood pancake, kimchi noodles, jap che noodles, and more! There was a lot of food! After the dinner, I gave my dear friends some treats (because don't you ever wish that goodie bags were for grown-up parties too?) including my Unloved paper doll kit, some strawberry Pocky, and some yummy Japanese gummies (those things are so fragrant!). Then I opened all my cards and gifts. Some highlights are the ever-so-lovely pink roses that my honey gave to me, and the gorgeous bouquet of tulips that my best friend brought. Tulips are my favourite flowers! I love how they bend so gracefully out of a vase. See the pretty little buds that accompanied them? I can't stop looking at them. On the weekend, I went for a stroll with my sweetie and we found the most delicious treat at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory - a bouquet of chocolate dipped strawberries. Each luscious, juicy strawberry is on a long wooden stem and dipped in dark chocolate. It's soooo good, and the strawberries were so fresh and sweet (and big!). I would highly recommmend them for anyone looking for an ideal Valentine's day gift. Our bouquet was gone in seconds! Oh, and this comic cracks me up!
