Birthday instax 4-11-2012
I can hardly believe that it is my birthday already. I've had a lovely day so far, with our usual Sunday Dim Sum and then we returned home where my mum and I (we share the same birthday) celebrated with this awesome green tea and red bean cake from the Chinese bakery. The cake was a bit of a risky choice as we have never tried this combination before but since I'm an avid green tea drinker, it's no surprise that I was rather taken by the idea of a green tea sponge. The filling is cream which has red beans, also known as azuki beans (a favourite flavour in Asian desserts) mixed in, all topped off with some simple fruit decoration. It turns out that it was a pretty good choice after all as the flavours worked really well together *pats myself on the back*. Birthday celebration wise, I'm not really one for big parties and much prefer low key affairs. So in a couple of hours I will be meeting some of my oldest friends for dinner at a new French restaurant I've been itching to try!
