Our family has become slightly obsessed with My Kitchen Rules whether it be because watching train wrecks being averted is thrilling, the schadenfreude in me loves the prospect of the bitchy couples crumbling and of course Manu and his sexy accent. Anyhoo, my Dad also has gotten really really into the show probably because they’re just “normal” people like us? So for my sister’s birthday he basically gave himself a 3hour limit to cook three courses and he also did all the required shopping during the day haha

A few days earlier we had a family dinner for my Erina’s 20th birthday… she requested Tempura.
On my ACTUAL birthday we headed down to Jazushi in Surry Hills where Susan Gai Dowling was performing for an “intimate” dinner with close friends <3.
The atmosphere at Jazushi was lovely the waitstaff were so kind, the place so relaxing and the food was enjoyable too… I did get stressed by the sheer amount of time they sang Happy Birthday to me though. Oh BTW we did order other foods Scallops, Beef Tataki, Sashimi Salad, Black Sesame Ice Cream, Green Tea Ice Cream and omg they served a really divine Creme Brulee (I just didn’t take photos of them…apologies I was busy) .
