Birthday gift & cake

I turned 35 on Sunday*. I only feel 28. I have such good genes, so thanks Mum & Dad.

This was one of my best birthdays ever. I spent three wonderful days with the gorgeous Quỳnh culminating in a dinner at Shri – a classy rooftop restaurant in District 1. The view was lovely and the food great. Quỳnh gave me a beautifully wrapped gift which turned out to be a shirt she had tailored for me from a most interesting fabric. Photos at a later date.

Dinner on Monday night was with my Vietnamese family, and they surprised me with this very special cake after yet another great home-cooked meal.

I’m a very lucky & happy guy these days.

Happy Birthday, indeed.

* Of course that’s a lie. I’m actually 46. Yeah, I know. I can’t believe it myself.
