On Friday my carnivorous family celebrated my birthday at Chophouse… (not many photos of meat because it was dark and tend to lookalike, so I took photos of the desserts instead XD ) BUT my sister loved her Glazed Beef Short Rib with house-made BBQ Sauce (350g) and bro ate all of his Dry Aged Delmonico with chutney and jus while Mum and I had our Minute Steak of Black Angus with cafe de paris butter.

well my family plus one who’s been slowly creeping into our house

So finishing my posts before the New Year failed terribly… have a good reason, I had a fever two days before NYE and was bedridden XP Anyhoo back on schedule…

I know I said I didnt feel like celebrating my birthday much but I ended up celebrating it over a week, Bill dubbed it “Golden Week” and even drew me a card incorporating all the things we did during the week.

Golden Week kicked off on the Wednesday my mum took me to see Wicked The Musical again, Row D baybeee and smack bang in the middle so so good, and bought me the Soundtrack too X))

On the Thursday Bill took me to Yoshii for dinner and it was amaaaazzziinnnnng, everything was so so good. Can’t wait to go back there again, definately one of my favourite restauarants. Bill had the Yoshii course and I had the Saqura course so our dishes were slightly different. Highly highly highly recommend going there, the food is simple but paired so well together and is simply stunnnninnnng.
