We kicked things off the night before with an extravagant Whiskey Tasting at Duri-Ann and Duri-Andy’s place.
The whiskies were really top shelf. I wish I’d kept a paper and pen with me and taken notes. My fave? I hope I don’t sound too pedestrian, but Johnny Walker Blue Label won in my book for its smoothness.
Now, on to birthday festivities. My favorite cuisine is Japanese. Unfortunately, I don’t get to indulge in it too often because it is generally too restrictive for Mr. Happy’s condition…vegetarian.
So with a gang of people willing to eat whatever I chose, I pinpointed Joyoga in the Starhill Gallery.
We all went to town!
The meal was topped off by a delicious chocolate birthday cake.
I think excess calories hampered my lung capacity. Or perhaps excessive candles???
The cake was courtesy of none other than the very talented Baker. Thank you!
It was complimented by a bit of cognac.
This buffet is HUGE. I think the staff was mighty surprised to see us bring our own food. Prepare yourself for an upcoming posting of MerBear's Workout Guide.
The day was so much fun. I couldn’t have been happier.
This was also the first birthday I ever celebrated where Christmas season was in full swing.
KL is decorated from tip to toe.
I’m feeling colder already.
And when I got home, it was Christmas! Mr. Happy knocked my socks off with a new Canon Rebel EOS. Prepare yourselves for killer pics soon to come.
