Dragon’s 1st Birthday

I can’t believe that Dragon is one years old! Where did the past 12 months go? On the weekend, we celebrated Dragon’s birthday. It was really more for the adults than her really, an excuse for the adults to have a get together and eat good food, and indeed we did have good food!


I’d like to thank Angie, who made Dragon’s brilliant birthday cake! I think when I first asked her about it, she was a little shocked or sceptical. I am pretty sure she thought I was MAD! She wanted me to make balls of cakes? But she was brilliant, and I was SO happy with the end result so THANK YOU again! It was absolutely delicious also!


Here’s what we had to eat…


Started with chicken spring rolls and spinach and ricotta triangles


Yummy quiche Lorraine


Ayam telor bali, chicken and egg Balinese style


Perkedel – mashed potatoes with spices such as shallots, garlic, and white pepper


Empal daging, spicy beef


Ati ampela – now this is not for everyone but definitely my favourite!


You can’t have a birthday celebration without noodles for longevity


Ikan ibis, which I couldn’t have but definitely a favourite of mine!


The tupeng – yellow turmeric rice with vegies and meat. You take the top one for the birthday person.


And I didn’t take a photo of mum’s rendang as well as the bakso goreng which were a hit!

My favourite dessert, kelepon which a dear friend of mum’s made! I love these!!! Can’t remember how many of these I ate, but definitely enough to go to the gym every single day (twice a day) this week!


Apple strudel which was served with ice cream!


There were plenty other desserts which I forgot to take photos off, including pudding and other Indonesian desserts! And of course, the birthday girl’s cake – chocolate mud cake! It was absolutely superb! The reaction on Dragon’s face was unforgettable and absolutely epic! It was the reaction that we all wanted, so many thanks again Angie for the awesome cake!


Happy 1st birthday Dragon – hope you had a great time and thank you to all my family and friends for celebrating this special occasion. And a BIG thank you to my uncle for the photos!


Hope you all had an awesome weekend!
