Stephberry’s 24th!

At 11:00am today I get a phone call from Stephberry. When I asked, “How’s my dear?”, she responded with a “Very sad.” I asked, “Why?”, and she replied, “Because my BB is not in the flowers!” A week ago, I had ordered the flowers to be sent to her office – she had been bugging me all week to reveal to her what my present was!

Evening time and when I got to Stephberry’s house I gave her the actual present: a Swarovski bear holding a heart. “Like Ah Boo”, I said. (Boo’s this polar-bear soft toy that hangs around at home.) She’s happy. =) She also got quite a few presents, including a 24″ iMac from her parents (so cool!) as well as a Stitch wristband from Betsy in Hong Kong. After taking some snaps, we went to Orita’s, a Japanese restaurant in Toorak that was recommended by one of Steph’s colleagues. Steph’s family, her grandparents and my brother (8 in all) came along to celebrate. The meal was pretty good – we opted for the 7-course signature banquet. Interesting things in the set course was a tiny shot-glass of corn (prepared by melting actual corn for “a day and a half”) as well as 2 juicy pieces of herb-oil-injected tomatoes (left to mature for 3 days!) The service was fantastic, the hostess also placed the cake we brought along into a large dish, complete with extra chocolate decorations and a sparkling candle. The only lowlight: my camera died at the start of the meal – so no food shots! Aiya!
