Rob's 40th Birthday

When you tell your guests that pre dinner drinks is at 7.30, and dinner is at 8.00pm, something automatically re-programs their brains to tell them that pre dinner drinks is at 8.00pm, and dinner is at 9.00pm. Such is the Malaysian brain.

2nd 40th birthday in a long line of many hitting the big four this year. KSL very graciously organised the event for her darling husband, with a guest list comprising, rightfully so, of close friends.

Pre dinner drinks at the bar was enough to give me a buzz. By the time we adjourned to the dinner venue, I could have sashayed in like a prima donna. Anyway, the people at the venue comprised mainly people in the 70s or above. So we were the youth of today. The thing is, we could actually identify with most of the music. All of us save one young lass on our table, who recently married one of our peers.

The escargots look rather appealing actually.

Now, this Rib Eye steak was really succulent, and the mustard was superb. The accompanying vegetables COULD have been better.

Deep fried oysters. Very tasty actually.

Fresh oysters for the birthday boy. Obviously he was going to get some action, no doubt part o the 40th birthday package.

Well, as they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so thanks again, Mr and Mrs KSL, for a lovely time. Good company of old friends and good food, good wine, what more can a person ask for.
