The birthday girl - A Self Portrait.
It was my birthday on Friday, 25th Dec 2009. My 3rd year (15 in feline terms) of existence on this planet. I was born on 25th Dec 2006. I have no recollection of my biological family. I think my life really began after my Mama rescued me from someone's backyard.
Anyway, Mama organised a birthday party for me. Even Brad was helping out and promised to be on his best behaviour. Well, he might just steal my thunder, you know...
Brad and I having a "Dos and Don'ts" session before the guests arrive. Won't tell you all what I threatened him with but it worked. teeheehee...
Mama did me proud by supplying the food and drinks.
Roast chicken (this is Mama's own recipe)
Salad (Asian greens and feta cheese)
My two lovely future mothers-in-law, Aunty Z and Aunty If ... aaahh... so hard to decide.
Aunty Z and family who came all the way from Hornsby also brought food.
The Additional Menu
Rice in coconut milk (nasi lemak)
Anchovy and quail egg in chili
Fried anchovy fillets
Mee Siam (hot chili rice noodles with hot fermented soybean gravy)

The kids having their fill.
Whose hands are those?
Lamb curry - upclose.
Roast chicken - upclose.
After dinner, Mama made coffee and tea, and took out the cake too. Must say this is one of Mama's experiments. Baked blueberry cheesecake - low fat and low calorie. She used cottage cheese and yogurt to make this delicious cake. Oh, with fresh blueberries too of course.
The blueberry cheesecake sitting pretty in the fridge before taken out to be demolished. yummmm....
Cake cutting ceremony - yours truly assisted by Aunty If and Kakak Z.

Oh, the kids brought presents for me too. Nope, not cat food. purrr.....meow!
