heading over to arintji to celebrate my belated birthday with my sister this weekend( i know, my birthday is lasting for like a week and two days, how awesome is that? ahahha). i've been reading rather contradicting reviews about this place.. the age said it was horrible and was revamped to become something awesome(ish)
however bloggers and some other food places strongly recommend we NOT go there.

hmm, however as a rule, i always follow the age epicure - 9/10 they are true to their word and places they do recommend are usually on the money. verge, comme, madame sousous and various others.. the epicure is hardly ever wrong !

oh well, just made my booking. its too late to change now!

i do however approve that they have their meals tailor-made - they can either be entree size and meant to be shared or it can be a huge-ass plate meant as a main. with 6 of us going methinks we're gonna have our very own little degustation menu set up. plus the restaurant is situated on fed square so its gonna be rather scenic to munch our food overlooking the yarra river.

oh have i mentioned that this was opened my jacques reymond? although as his second restaurant its probably NOWHERE near his first, i'm hoping he took enough time out after its whole 'revamp'ing thing to make it almost as awesome as his first.

i know, i can't expect it to be as awesome as the first.. a meal in jacques reymond is likely to cost you at least 180 (they only do degustations on the weekend) and this one you can get a meal for as low as 30, ahhaha!

owh well. wish me luck on my choice of restaurant people!

may the force be with arintji,

chocolate sunrise

so now that its all over (my birthday that is) a proper proper update about what i did and what i've been up to.

so, the party itself was a blast. so awesome that everyone i invited turned up :)
also thankschus to my kulis of the day.. my family, wilson and maddie's mum. lol ! don't know what i'll hv done without them.

madison baked me a cake.. supposedly with nancy's help but by time nancy reached around 3 the cake was already all done ! just needed the candles but the cake looked awesome - and tasted awesome to boot. thanks ;)

both of us dealt with the menu of the day aside from the bbq and deep fried stuff and i believe it was a success, teehee.

bbq boys were really cham all night - my bro and wilson barely ate coz they spent all their time cooking.

some photos from the night. the rest can be seen on my fb acc under choco bears attack!

teehee, i like prezzies ! and the prezzies were ORRSOMEEE :)
tiffany and cos necklace, jammies, jackets, chef's blowtorch, lingerie, shoes, candles, etc. etc.


we headed to lavish after that.. yawns, i'm too old for these kinda things! teehee.

nxt day spent the WHOLE day cleaning up T_T parties aren't easy yo. lotsa cleanup *cries*
but then again with my army of kulis behind me it got all done up i guess. my poor bro and maddie.. at least i had the next day off. and the day after.. and the day after that.. lol !

also, had... to lug our trash to the yongs coz there wasn't enough place in our bin ! T_T

spent monday in, having my hair cut! LOL its now super short and according to lotsa ppl i know look like an anime character. wilson says i now look like nico robin. lol, sigh. i really don't know if that is a good thing or not.

he made me do a treasure hunt for my present at 12midnight. twas kinda fun but i realise i'm none too smart-i can't solve riddles! if gollum ever caught me (ala bilbo baggins style) i'll defo die k ! lol
he gave me a marcs jacket, aww *heart*

watched predators on tues and then dinner at comme, some french/spanish fusion restaurant.

i just got back from daylesford - went to the choco mill, the spa and lakehouse. actually wanted to go to some lakes and parks around that area but started raining NON stop. meh. oh well, still an awesome awesome day.

plenty of chocolate and a relaxing spa later, i'm back in pt cook and i'm well satisfied :)

i am the luckiest girl in the world.

had an awesome awesome party last night with dollops of help(90% of what was done probably) from madison, my bro, maddy's mum and my darling. not bad for two days of running around and heaps of cleaning up today.

more on my birthday party and other stories coming up soon ! on the birthday gift list from friends are a blow torch for kitchen use (Creme brulee here i come!), sexy lingerie, and some cute jammies to (not really) match (they're both peter alexander!), TIFFANY AND CO necklace (ZOMG!), beautiful stussy jacket, nine west shoes (slobbers) and heaps more. proper update when i'm properly free (probably next week)

i LOVE my friends (;

and my family. they the best.

and my darling. he's the best although he's so tired now i doubt he'll be in working condition till mid afternoon.

may the force be with turning 23,
