Kevin's mum birthday

Last Sun was Kevin's mum birthday, Kevin and I went to One U to buy a birthday cake for her. We went to Dragon-i 龙的传人, a Chinese restaurant in One U, because her mum wished to dine-in there. We asked if is it alright to put the cake in the restaurant, thought to give his mum a small surprise. From there we met the restaurant manager, Dave. A very friendly, sporty and nice youngman ;)

After we got the approval, we went to buy cake. At first Kevin wanted to buy cake from Secret Recipe or La manilla, but they only have 1kg. We walked around and tried to find another bakery.

Ah...yeah! I remember Bread Story has got a lot of 500grams cake,

Their cakes are delicate and beautiful

Background, uniforms are all in apple green, which is a very refreshing and sweet color. Somehow some people say orange is a good color in F & B (food and beverage) industry, but I don't think so. It's too warm, I wouldn't want to dine-in in an orange color restaurant :(
But if Malaysia has got winter, then would be different story, hahahaha :P

Coffee, Tea, or ME?


Kevin's parents met us in Old Wing One U, we lead them to Dragon-i, well in fact we tried this restaurant before, I thought the foods are so-so...

龙的传人!吃了难道会变成一条龙?LOL :P

I didn't take all photos of the foods we ordered, need to take care of people's stomach, they were hungry (Erm, me too la) ;)
My Seafood Ramen
Not bad! ^^

Some dumplings

While we were eating, Dave suddenly came up and approached Kevin's mum...
"Today is your birthday right? Happy birthday!"

"Huh? How do you know? Thank you thank you" Kevin's mum smiled and she was surprised

I was surprised too...damned surprised, I hoped Kevin's mum wouldn't think much and wouldn't know we bought her a cake. In my heart, I prayed, please Dave, don't ask me any questions about the cake...Glad he didn't! He just walked away after the greetings :)

After we finished the foods, I hinted Kevin...he walked away and gave the green light to Dave. Kevin's mum felt strange, so I lied at her

"The restaurant manager is Kevin's friend, so he just went there and chat with him before we leave"

Few minutes later, Kevin's back. I told him I told his mum he knew Dave

"Yeah, I know him, I know him for 2 hours!"

After a short while, I saw Dave and some waitresses and waiters brought that cake up and slowly approached us.... 

You can see them in the photo :)

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you

She was very surprised and from the photo, you can see her face was whole red :')

Tiramisu :)

Together with Dave ;)

And us ;)

Cake cutting

Although it was only a small surprise, but it made all of us smile, happy...
Sometimes you don't need to spend big money to win people's smile :)
But, sometimes the surprise you plan to make people smile needs a lot of money, HAHAHA! :P

Before we left


I hope she stays healthy and happy forever, she is the nicest woman I met other than my mum :D Happy birthday, muacksssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! :D
