Celebrating his Birthday For the 5th Time...

In 2002, the venue was Chill, the theme was oriental. In 2003, the venue was Chill, and the theme, BLACK. Twas quite funny, coz when they sang the birthday song, there was a gong going CHIANG, every time we finished, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU....wearing black and all, one wondered if it was a Chinese Funeral....

In 2004, it was Bar Savanh, theme...hmmm, I forget. 2005 was stripes, in The Ivy. From the photo archive, the 2004 party didn't seem to have a distinct theme, either that, or the guest didn't cooperate, but if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it was black and white. Like zebras.

This year, the theme was PINK. Pretty in Pink or what. Venue? Bar Savanh. As usual, everyone seemed dressed to the nines, you'd think that Tatler would be featuring the event. The usual array of drinks lined the table, as the 80s music was belted out.....and this time we were really showing our age. King of the Chinese kept exclaiming how good the music was, and when they played boney M's By the Rivers of Babylon, I was reminded of my school bus days in form 1 & 2, when they used to play Boney M. Nevertheless, I reckon the 80s music is classic dance music, and with adequate amounts of plonk in the system, it WOULD be the music to which you might catch my gyrating to.

The Birthday cake, which I was commissioned to make. It comprised 34 pieces of flourless chocolate cake with brandy chocolate sauce

Oh, did I mention it was Red Planet's Birthday I was talking about? The annual event of the year when I can look forward to a hangover with certainty. However this year, the hangover was a 6 out of 10, 10 being that year 2003, when Mr Reliable bundled me into a cab and I was still sick the next day at dinnertime.

I vaguely remember leaving at 3.30 am in the morning, and I believe it's the first time I've actually left at the same time as the birthday boy. What a great night. You do host the best birthday parties, Red Planet. (of course, cannot count Bordeaux in the comparison list).

Spent most of Saturday morning in a daze, as I attended nephew's birthday lunch. Body combat in the evening helped detox somewhat, which was followed by some intensive baking, which was then followed by gambling. Oh my goodness, it DOES sound like I lead a pagan, hedonistic lifestyle!!! It was wholesome gambling, much like harmless mahjong amongst old folk.

Sunday church as usual, followed by preparations for baby boy's 4th birthday party. What an exhausting weekend!!!
