Pre-birthday celebration

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, January 24, 2009
Today, I celebrated with CT his birthday. It actually falls on the first day of Chinese New Year(CNY) but you know how the first day would always be so busy. So, my birthday present for him is to cook him a nice lunch and dinner to celebrate as CT is one guy who does not have much wants...he is simply happy and satisfied with anything or even nothing. He would always tell me that I do not have to give him anything whenever I ask him what he wants..that it does 'frustrate' me because I like to do something for him or give him something. Ha. So nevertheless, as the saying goes,"the way to a man's heart is through his stomach"..so I thought cooking for him would be the best.

In the morning, there was a knock on our door. It was a man who delivered a box of birthday cake for CT. It was actually sent by the car shop owner whom we bought our car from. How cool is that? Talking about after sales service- this company comes in top! They have even organised workshops for us to attend on cars, as well as given us free gift-like 2009 calender, key chain etc.



How timely the cake came since I wanted to celebrate CT's birthday today and didnt have any cake.



Here's what I prepared for our lunch- Japanese udon noodles and prawn tempura



I made use of the cod fish slices and prawn tempura which I bought from the frozen shop.



Here's our lunch




Blendered the radish and placed it in the tempura dip. If ever you go to Seagift, do buy the tempura prawns and its really very good and authentic. Costs $5.20 for 10 prawns.

As for dinner, I did steamboat cum BBQ. I grilled mussels with garlic, white wine and cheese.





Had local lettuce, prawns, pork, beef, fish balls, fu zhou fishballs, ngor hiang, enoki mushrooms, shitake mushrooms, snakehead fish slices. Didnt prepare much since its just the 3 of us. What I love best was the BBQ beef dipped in raw egg! Yum...





Had 3 dipping sauces for the BBQ cum steamboat. First was yong tau foo sweet sesame sauce, second was soya sauce with sesame oil and garlic and the third sauce was chinchalok chilli sauce.



And after everything, we finally had the birthday cake for dessert! Happy birthday CT (in advance)!



Can you imagine how full we were after all that?
