♡ お誕生日おめでとうございます! ♡


Argh I cannot stop listening to Jaejoong's 'MINE' song!

Ayyyaaahhh (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ I am so behind with writing blog posts that I'm starting to not care and just leave them all out... which to be honest people would probably like it if I didn't post so much huh? 

Anyway on Saturday I went into London, specifically to Ealing Broadway, to have lunch with Sharan and a few of her friends to celebrate her birthday - which was actually on the 11th but eh we all work during the week so weekends are the only great time to meet up! I actually had a horrendous cold all of last week as well as over the weekend - I've literally only just gotten over it but still am a bit wheezy and cough a lot - and on Saturday I had such a croaky voice I could just barely raise my volume to a mere whisper but I was glad that I could still interact with everybody and not seem like a anti-social bitch.

I don't look half bad for a sick person huh? ( ̄︶ ̄)

We ate lunch at this cute little place called Tuk Cho, which is about a five minute walk from the station, where they specialise in south-east asian food from countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. They even do a couple of Japanese inspired dishes too but it seriously made such a wonderful change to eat south-east asian food rather than just sticking to the usual Korea / Japanese cuisine. I ate a delicious jungle curry for my main meal with a side bowl of some lovely glutenous rice and this was seriously the best jungle curry I have ever eaten because of the amount of vegetables inside the dish itself where as with previous experiences I would have been lucky to have found anything more than carrot and sweet potato... Also the spice managed to help unblock my nose and I could finally breathe through my nose towards the end of our meal! ヾ(*´∇`)ノ

I also ordered a couple of side dishes, which are more known as street food from the countries they came from, and they both were so tasty I could have just lived off them! My first side dish was karii buff (Thailand) which is curried chicken in flaky pastry parcels served with sweet chilli dipping sauce and my second side dish was sate (Indonesia) which were charcoal grilled chicken skewers served with a spicy peanut dipping sauce.

Somehow, after all of this amazing food, I managed to have room for dessert! I ordered the lime chocolate brownie with chocolate chip ice-cream and in the end Sharan and I ended up eating part of each others desserts! She had the ginger and white chocolate cheesecake and I thought that I wouldn't particularly like it because I hate ginger so so so much but it was amazing! I do regret not ordering the cheesecake now but hey... a great excuse to go to this restaurant again!

I honestly and truthfully recommend this restaurant to visit from the bottom of my heart because the atmosphere was so lovely and the staff were so kind and caring too! Also you can peep into the kitchen from wherever you're sitting and sneakily watch the chefs cook away! Check out Tuk Cho's website here.

After we had eaten, the others were heading over to a friend's house in Bermondsy for a noreabang session and one of my closest friends was going to be there and as I hadn't seen her for a good 6 or 7 months i decided to surprise her and tagged along for an hour. The best moment was the look on her face when I snuck up behind her and we literally had the biggest cuddles for a good 10 minutes! Unfortunately after 25 minutes I felt worse health wise than I had in the morning so I sadly said my goodbyes to everyone and headed off home. Next time I'll stay longer and spend more time with people... as well as next time I won't be ill when I get invited out. 

Despite the flaw of the day being completely and horrendously sick, I really enjoyed myself and enjoyed the food and enjoyed the company. As well as making new friends, seeing old faces really warmed my heart up and put a smile on my face. Oh and Sharan... you'll forever be 25 in my heart as well as your own 誕生日おめでとう。 (*´▽`* ♥

Another thing... just ten more days until my best friend comes down to stay for a whole week! I am pretty excited as I haven't seen her for so long! 。・゚゚・(>д<;)・゚゚・。

Thanks for reading!
