I’m a proud uncle of a 1 year old bundle of joy. :D
My sister’s daughter just turned a year old and the entire Poh clan went out to celebrate her birthday. I’m really fond of her, she’s soft and adorable and it’s really touching when she takes to me and asks for a hug. *melts
We all went for dinner at this Chinese restaurant called Home Cook Corner (favored by my dad coz of the relatively low MSG content) and ordered:
Claypot pork leg
This is nicely done and came out tender and sweet – just as it should be.
Unidentified veggies with egg
I don’t know what vegetable this is but I love how it’s cooked with egg. Eggs = awesome.
Curry fish head
I like how this came out.
It can’t compare to the legendary Sheraton curry fish head in Sibu but it comes pretty close.
This is a local fern that’s only available in Sarawak. It’s cooked in a spicy and sour style which actually works pretty well.
Erm…this is actually mine, I always tend to order this when I’m eating in Sibu.
Kung pow chicken
I found this a little bland and disappointing since I’m used to very spicy dishes.
House specialty tofu
I’m not particularly fond of tofu so this doesn’t really appeal to me.
Homemade fishball soup
The fishball is the size of an egg (!!!). I quite liked it even though the others found it too soft.
We adjoined back home after dinner with all the relatives in tow for the obligatory cake cutting ceremony. This is a durian cake from Secret Recipe. Yes, we have one in Sibu. -_-
I don’t know if she made a wish (probably not, considering her age) but I made one for her. May you grow up to be happy and here’s to life treating you well!
Happy birthday little one. Much love from your uncle. <3 "…and I hope, life treats you kind. And I hope, you have all you dreamed of. I wish you joy, and happiness. And above all this, I wish you…love.“
