This is one long overdue post. It's already close to the end of December and I still haven't written about all the nice things my mom, dad, uncle and aunt did for me on my birthday last month. I'm really thankful for all the thoughtful gestures that they did for me on my birthday. I was really touched and happy. My mom made my favorite dishes for dinner and my dad helped out. My aunt made some egg tarts and my uncle/aunt/cousins made a really sweet card. Here are a few pictures of the dinner...
Soda Crackers with Smoked Salmon, Cranberries, and Cream Cheese
They were really yummy. These were my mom's idea.
One of my childhood favorite food that I mentioned before on my blog. I specially requested my mom for this handmade "noodle". I now kind of know how to make them. They are basically 1 egg, a few cups of flour and water. Just mix until it becomes a hard dough. Then pinch off pieces of the dough to create this noodle that resembles cat ears. :) Cook them in boiling water. They go along with a vegetable and meat soup. It was very time consuming for my mom and dad to make. I'm very thankful for their patience and love.

My mom also baked some drumsticks. Sorry for the terrible picture, I didn't want to make everyone wait while I took it. (^_^')
My aunt brought along some egg tarts that she made. Aren't they so cute? Look at how many she made!
Birthday Cake and Card
Here's the cake I made and the thoughtful card that my uncle/aunt/cousins wrote for me.
