The Husband's Birthday Weekend

I've got lots of foodie adventures that needs to be written (as always) and an article deadline this week so for now, let me share a collage of how we celebrated the birthday of the man behind this blog, Chris, simply called "the Husband".

There is a pattern as to how we celebrate our birthdays.  It usually includes not going to work (we make a long weekend out of it), delicious food, great company, shopping and travel. This year, we had a quiet celebration in Sydney which started on Friday. 

We headed out to Cabramatta, Sydney's Vietnam-town on Friday morning, had our first taste of Vietnamese coffee (it was wonderful!), explored the streets and shopped at the markets. Before we left, we had lunch at one Pho Viet. In the evening, we brought Chinese food to my aunt's place and had dinner with relatives.

Went out early on Sunday to have breakfast at IKEA. We bought a few storage solution items because my project this Spring is to make our home more efficient by having organised cabinets.

Monday, his birthday, we went out to hear mass and had lunch at Asadal, a Korean-Japanese restaurant in Parramatta. At home for dinner, I cooked my first ever Pancit Bihon which we enjoyed with Roast Pork.  

We ended the day watching the beautiful sunset at home while he blew out a candle and savoured the cupcakes I got him.
