Tried caffe americano at Starbucks for the first time and I liked it! It's the café coffee equivalent of my Nescafe intense 3-in-1 premix coffee at home.
Bought a Yamazaki white forest cake (they had the black forest one but I thought that's rather boring) and had an early birthday celebration for my dear twin siblings before Mom and Dad goes off to Japan for a holiday trip.
I recall feeling neglected when you two were surrounded by red hard-boiled eggs, a plate of chicken wings, a big saucepan of fried bee hoon, and of course a lovely birthday cake with a burning candle that lit up your faces. Those were the days, when childish me thought I had lost mom's and dad's love to you two. And today, I'm singing the birthday song with my heart, with a birthday cake I bought for you.
Not quite innovative with birthday greetings so I decided to skip those. I'll just say I hope to be singing birthday songs for you two, for as long as I could, together with new people who love you even more, as you form your own heartwarming families one day...
