Posts Tagged ‘生日’

上星期五是復活节假期。邀请了几个好朋友来我们家做客, 也算是为我庆祝生日和饯行。

On Good Friday, we have invited a few friends over for dinner. It was for my birthday and farewell dinner.

我们决定大展厨艺,为朋友们煮一餐马来西亚和广东晚餐。菜单很丰富,菜肴有:

We decided to cook something different, a Malaysian and Cantonese dinner for our friends consisting of the following courses:

  1. 叉烧包 BBQ pork buns as appetitzer (store bought)
  2. 马来西亚的咖哩鸡 Malaysian Curry Chicken (homemade)
  3. 醉鸡 Drunken Chicken (homemade)
  4. 蒜蓉豆豉炒蚶 Fried Clams with Garlic and Black Bean Sauce(homemade)
  5. 卤胡罗卜牛腩 Turnip and Beef Brisket in Chinese Marinade (homemade)
  6. 蠔油芥兰 Fried Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce (homemade)
  7. 鲜虾炒碗豆 Fried Snowpeas with Prawn(homemade)
  8. 斋拼盘 Cantonese style Vegetarian Platter (store bought)
  9. 烧鸭 Roast Duck (store bought)
  10. 黑白巧可力蛋糕 Black and White Chocolate Mousse Cake (from Loblaws)
  11. 还有很多的白,红酒,其中一瓶是Ed收藏了八年很贵的澳洲红酒 and lots and lots of white & red wine, including a fancy bottle of Australian red Ed was saving for eight years.

在多伦多,马来西亚餐馆屈指可数。Ed没遇到我之前,从没尝试过马来西亚美食。所以,在这里不普遍的马来西亚的咖哩鸡对他们来说是蛮特别的。不难煮,因为这里买得到马来西亚的咖哩粉,更令我振奋的是, 我竟买得到pandan叶! 我从未在墨尔本见过。所以,煮出来的咖哩很香,还算可以见人。我和Ed的厨艺加起来还算不错,所以客人们吃得开胃又开心,所有菜肴都被吃得几乎美人照镜。我和Ed 也自豪 🙂

There are only a few Malaysian restaurants in Toronto. Malaysian food is not common in Toronto, therefore the Malaysian curry chicken dish was something new for our guests. It was not too hard to cook because I can get authentic Malaysian curry powder here. What really surprised me was I found pandan leaves here ! I never saw it in Melbourne. It helped to sweeten the flavour of the curry. Ed and I are ok cooks, and our guests enjoyed our food so much that we did not have much leftover!

今天是我的生日! 先祝自己生日快乐 !

昨晚,从绘画班回到家时,就见到一束鲜花在桌上等待着我….

在加拿大,春天从3月20日/21日晚,算正式开始。很开心发现我是带来春天的孩子。早上醒来时已见到美丽的春天的阳光…

暂不多写,要穿美美出门与Ed吃午餐了!

Today is my birthday ! Happy Birthday to myself !

Last night, when I came home from painting class, there was already a bunch of beautiful flowers sitting on the table waiting for me…

In Canada, spring has officially started on the night of 20/21 March. I am happy to know that I am a child who brings about springtime. The springtime sunshine this morning is lovely …..

I have already received plenty of warm wishes from family and friends through text messages, emails and e-cards. I am so touched that they remember my birthday. Thanks so much, my dear family and friends !

Just a short and sweet post for now, I have to dress up now and go out to have lunch with Ed !

我的生日就要来了。这是个重要的生日。(年龄在此是秘密 😀 )

他正烦着要如何为我庆祝。

起初, 建议去纽约。可是, 价钱很昂贵。一个周末的费用是去Caribbean一星期的费用。Caribbean的沙滩与东南亚的沙滩,有点相似的。不同的是,那里的人及食物。可是,因Ed的工作关系,我们没有足够时间背包旅行,所以,我俩也不太兴奋。

近来,用电脑多了。Ed也曾想送我一部laptop。其实,也是怕我弄坏了他那专业的laptop。因我的人较粗心大意。

还要准备一个派对,邀请朋友为我庆祝。还没决定,是要在家弄,还是出去吃。我想,该是在家搞个火锅餐吧。容易准备,对洋人来说也是新奇。

其实,那么多年来,我都没特别庆祝生日,至到遇到他后。我也不太喜欢派对。 人太多, 只是说些琐事,没机会谈谈心。

为了这个生日,蛮头痛的。他却坚持, 说这是个重要的生日,要好好庆祝一番,希望在几十年后,我也会记得这个生日。他说得也对。也谢谢他的体帖。

我最希望的只是,自己及身边的人健康快乐和睦。还有,在这重要的生日来临前, 好好回想过去,展望将来,许下一两个生日愿望。好好努力,希望几十年后,这几个愿望会实现,那就真的是会记得了。
