It’s time of the year we’re all gathered to see our family and best friends and of course, we prepared food and sweets to indulge in festivity. Here’s a photo of my carrot cup cakes – the super moist delicious carrot and spice cup cake I ever made 🙂
When I greeted my bro Kelly ” A happy 60th birthday ” he told me he is celebrating with a dual citizen!
YEp! Filipino Citizen and Senior Citizen 🙂
When you hit the big SIX “O” (60 yrs old), you got a card of senior citizen and a tag of twenty percent discount to selected airlines , restaurant and a free bus pass too!
We decided to celebrate his bday with a “hot-pot ” lunch at home. Hot pot is basically a mixed of East Asian stew, simmering at the centre of the dining table; the ingredients like meat, shrimp,fish and different kind of vegetables are cooked at the table. The ultimate dining experience where you can smell the aroma of the spices, your eyes glued on the food, and once it hit your palate, savouring the flavour and the freshness, yum! then suddenly you grab a tissue to wipe your perspiration 🙂 either from the hot spices or from the steam of the hot-pot 🙂 whatever it is..we fill and feel the happiness of our belly.
I also made “lumpiang sariwa ” (fresh vegetable spring rolls) with homemade egg roll wrapper. We supposed to eat this while waiting for the hot pot but it seemed everyone was just to hungry and we dig in almost at one time 🙂
After four years, I will also be celebrating my own 60th bday! yay 🙂 I wonder what kind of celebration would it be? for sure there will be another menu on the table, who knows, I might be sitting at a restaurant manage by my nomadic Chef Kevin , lovely thought!
And for my bff’s Thank you for coming!
For you my bro Kelly, may you have more birthdays to come, stay healthy and young at heart 🙂
