This girlfriend of mine was being all emo nemo end of February, she had repeatedly said that she wouldn't want to celebrate her birthday this year. Therefore, Anand and I threw her a surprise birthday dinner and we invited a few friends. Anand did a little fact find, and found out that Ms. Feli fancies Italian food. The food expert, Anand then called JP and we sneakily did the table reservations at Buonasera, SS2.
I booked her a week earlier before her birthday and insisted that she couldn't have appointments with anyone else on her birthday. We distributed tasks among ourselves. Anand prepared the balloons, princess tiara and sash. Boo, was the photographer of the night. Gane got her a bouquet of flowers. JP liased with the restaurant. The rest, to attend and create more havoc to stop this princess from being emo on her birthday!
On the big day itself, I fetched Feli from work and acted as normal as possible. Hahaha... Since that it was still early and the rest of our friends were not prepared yet, I sent Feli to a curry house to join my colleagues for "dinner". I was trying to hint her not to eat too much and suggested we shared a pax of banana leaf rice instead, *ahem* but as usual Feli can never resist good food and she walloped quite a lot of banana leaf rice. Deep inside, I hoped that her tummy would have enough space for the Italian food we planned on having later.
After dinner with my colleagues, I've got a whatsapp text from Anand that they were all set. So, I pretended to switch on my GPS , make a few turns just in case they were not fully prepared. Upon reaching the venue, Buonasera SS2, Felicia spotted JP and the rest. She then exclaimed, "OMG, so many familiar faces!".
She stepped out of my car and our friends shouted "Surprise!". Hehe! Boo captured her epic priceless expression. (I have yet to retrieve the pics from Boo).

Here comes the mass food walloping session. The menu was prepared by Chef Enzo himself. I have to say, out of all the dishes the PORK BELLY WAS TO DIE FOR! and the TIRAMISU cake too! The birthday dinner was like a pork feast! Hoho! Sinful! *Slurps*
Are you ready to see what we had? There were 10 of us, and we managed to finish all the food below. They served each dish 2 pax.
|Woo, the birthday girl posed for Boo's camera | Cutting the Tiramisu Cake!|
|Me, going all nuts while doing the helium gas trick. Ahaha! Everyone took turns to talk with our squeaky voice .|
Thank you to Buonasera Restaurant for serving us good food!
If you have the chance, you really have to try their Pork Belly!
