It has been an oriental weekend for me and my family. We started the weekend with a dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday at the Royal Flush Chinese restaurant. The exterior of the restaurant is so majestic that it looks like a real palace, only smaller. We then had two rounds of "dimsum" at Steam Room and Concorde Hotel throughout the weekend. Here's something you probably do not know about me: Although I may never learn the right way to hold a pair of chopsticks but I can't seem to live without it. I actually eat spaghetti with chopsticks whenever I'm at home. I inherit only half the "chopstick genes". Haha!

Pleasant dinner at a great restaurant to celebrate family or friend's birthday is one of the little gestures I enjoy giving. Marini on 57 is one those restaurants with remarkable food, impeccable service and meticulous presentation. No surprise that I chose to celebrate Alvin's birthday there on last Thurday. Reservation was initially made for Wednesday but we had to cancel considering I had an unavoidable presentation to give. I'm glad that Alvin has always been very understanding and supportive of my busy schedule. Well, he is very busy himself too. So, we had a drink at the bar before moving over to the restaurant. View from 57th floor was breathtaking.
Another important celebration was my sister's birthday at the Royal Flush chinese restaurant. My mom came back all the way to have a birthday dinner with her. Although my dad is rather tied up with busy work schedule, it just give us an excuse for another round of dinner when he comes back next week. :)
