I had a wonderful birthday week with lots of food, friends, and the weather finally getting (and staying) warm.
A friend stayed over for a few days at the beginning of the week, and bought many goodies.
We went for a pint after Aikido and Iaido class on the day (and was ID-ed again… ) …
… and a very nice treat of some very yummy handpulled noodles with tender stewed beef brisket and ice milk tea.
We even got a surprise after a hot lunch at the office the next day!
And then for dinner that night, a gorgeous mongolian steamboat (chinese hot pot/fondue) feast.
Last but not least, surprise pressies!!
Thank you all!
