Xing's 21st Birthday Celebration

One of our KL blogger friend, Xing aka Sim Yee invited a bunch of us to her house in Ampang for her open house turned birthday celebration the other night. It was to be her 21st Birthday Celebration, hence the festivities. I couldn't remember how I celebrated mine since it was eons ago, not that I'm very old now, mind you. Sim Yee was really sweet looking and perfectly dolled up to celebrate her 21st birthday with us that night.

So there we were, reaching her home to be greeted by the aroma of satay being prepared. Did I tell you, my favourite dish at any event would be these fantastic tasting Satays. I was really surprised at the length Xing and her family took to prepare all the food for us. There were all types of food from catering food, to Xing's Mum's homecooked tomyam mee hoon, to satays, "ice kacangs", and a whole lot of other varieties of food. This is going to be awesome, I thought to myself.

#3 Sweet and sour tofu, Sausages with fries, Fried Chicken
#4 Vegetables, Prawns and Xing's Mum's special home made tomyam beehoon

#5 Fried rice, Sotong, fruits and desserts
The food was good, to say the least. I think I took like nearly 20 sticks of satay for myself. Of course, halfway through our "makan" session, we being bloggers took the opportunity to catch some pictures as well. I actually wanted to shout out "Yum Seng!" while posing with a carlsberg beer in my hand, but figured this was a birthday celebration, not a wedding so it would be kind of inapproriate.

The birthday cake was pretty unique as it was shaped in a huge number 21. Check out some more photos I took of the birthday girl during her cake cutting session.

We even got a parting gift each (which kind of reminded me of a wedding ceremony). It was so thoughtful of her, that I felt the gift we gave her wasn't good enough.

Overall, an enjoyable night indeed and all of us had a great time celebrating Xing's big day. What an awesome 21st Birthday Party where everyone of us went home with a bloated stomach from all the good food. Thank you Xing for organizing, and a blessed birthday to you!

Good to have celebration for birthdays and other grand days. Bananaz never had any of this sort and its too long cant remember. That's the reason always have a party for my daughter since her 1st year. Great party for Xing and a bleated birthday wish.
