TGIB (Thank-God-It’s-(my)-Birthday)

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday at TGI Friday Subang Parade branch. It was a simple eating-out with just me, my husband and Sarah.

I am so looking forward for the dinner as it was our favourite dining spot when we were dating back then; plus we haven’t been there for more than a year now. We surely miss the food there.

When we reached TGIF, Sarah seems to be fine but things changed when she was greeted by the attended staff…she cried! Oh my, her loud voice can clearly be heard by everyone. Luckily I managed to calm her by carrying and showed her the surrounding of the restaurant.

Once she settled down we started to make our order. We have ordered the Jack Daniel Steak and Friday Shrimp (it was our old faithful). We thought that Sarah would like spaghetti which we specially ordered for her, but she doesn’t like it. She ended up eating some fries and mashed potato.









After the meal, we proceed to shopping. We were left to wonder why Sarah just keeps showing her fussiness during the whole shopping trip, which is quite unusual for her. But we still manage to buy some stuff then headed home.

Once we reached home, we continue the celebration by cake-cutting ceremony.



Although my 28th birthday was just celebrated with a simple outing, but I treasure every moment we spent together. They are really more than what I could ever ask for. For me, yesterday was just simply unforgettable.

P/S: Thanks all mommies who sent me warm birthday wishes. I appreciated it very much. Thank you.

Happy Belated Birthday to you! Nothing beats celebrating your birthday with your loved ones. To me, I like quiet celebration like this coz birthday is not a big deal to me anymore..haha..it just reminded me that I'm getting OLD..hahaha. Of course, I still anticipate the birthday gifts lah(if any)..LOL.

Your photos look great. I also thought Gwen likes spagetthi but she was not fond of it too. The Birthday cake is very nice. So, who ended up finishing the spagetthi? :P
