Another year older. I feel different, not necessarily in a bad way. But I’ve changed as a person. It’s not a feeling I can describe. I just can’t seem to put my finger on it. So much has happened. So much has changed. Nothing is static. Refusing to accept change is refusing to grow. And I would like to believe that during this past year, I’ve grown.
Yesterday, my friends and I went out to a steakhouse buffet called Brazzaz. It was my first time there and I was completely oblivious to what it exactly is. Until I stepped in and the waitress explained about the buffet. Oh.
Buffets were never my best friends. Not that because I don’t want to eat, it’s because I can’t eat that much. If I eat too much, I get bloated with the feeling of regurgitating. And since it was my friend’s treat, I was trying to prepare myself for what’s to come.
When we pulled up to the restaurant, my friend handed the guy his key for valet parking. Fancy.
Inside was dim and quiet. Like what my friend said, the dimmer the lighting, the fancier the restaurant.
Even at this point when I went to get food, I was still oblivious as to what is to come. The waitress sat us down and there was no menu whatsoever (all except a wine menu). So I did the only thing that everyone would when they come into a buffet. EAT.
That circular “token” is a waiter magnet. When you flip it over to the “Yes, please” side, a herd of waiters come by with different cuts of meat on a stick.
And you have to use your tongs to grab the meat off the stick. So that’s what they are for. :O
My before plate of meat.
My plate 30 minutes later. Looks like I didn’t touch my food. But honestly, I did! I was just so so so full. But the food keeps coming!
After awhile, I just admitted that I was full. But then they mentioned DESSERT. No matter how full you are, you always have room for dessert. Always.
So I just picked a lava cake because it was the smallest out of all the choices. Little did I know, they came back with this 15 minutes later.
A Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate! I’m a sucker for things like this. It was my first time having something like this and I was really excited.
After watching Masterchef sooooo many times, I had to role play as one of the judges while slowly cutting into the lava cake to see if it is truly a lava cake. The verdict? There’s hot chocolate flowing out of it. :)
Thank you to my friend for the treat and surprise! (Though I’m not entirely too happy about the $110 bill)
Oh yeah, I finally chopped my hair off. :D I really like the change!
This morning of our actual birthday, my sister and I went to watch FROZEN with our friend, Lila. Despite the insane rush to get there, we actually didn’t miss much of the movie. Super duper grateful for her to come out to watch it with us. <3
Coming home, we were greeted with a wonderful lunch prepared by my mom!
Thought it was cute for my mom to start taking pictures on her phone to send to her friends. xD
My mom even made this wonderful cake! I honestly can’t express how much I love eating my mom’s homemade cakes, because they are not too sweet like the ones you get at the bakeries. Soooo delicious!
After dinner, my friends and I went out for some bowling and catching up. I feel so grateful for having so much company with me on my birthday.
Thank you, everyone.
