The Birthday of 2013

The day before my birthday on September 1st, I had what I thought was a normal lunch meet up with Ade and Puey at Cups N Canvas. Who would have thought that these two sneaked in a surprise celebration for me after lunch! You guys. <3 Cups N Canvas.

Cups N Canvas.The place is split into half- one is a cafe and the other is an art space.

Cups N Canvas was located near Oven Marvel in Sunshine Plaza, a place which Puey’s parents own, and which offer some of the best confectioneries you’ll get to taste in Singapore. Puey’s mum even gave Ade and I an assortment of muffins and pies!!! Thank you Puey’s family!

September 2nd itself was a quiet affair, spent with with Mum, Brat #1, and Brat #2 for dinner at Vegan Burg. Mum had heard about it from her friends, so she drove us down to try it. Their decor is super cute, what with synthetic grass lining surfaces that I’d never expect. The burgers were a little disappointing though, especially since I’d had some really juicy vegan burgers back in LA. Still, points for decor, presentation, and a large piece of lettuce wedged in the burger.

To cap the day off, I had yet another surprise cake (sort of- my family isn’t too big on surprises either, so everyone had warned me about there being a cake already), homemade fruit tarts (c/o Aunty Serene), and leftover nommy muffins (c/o Oven Marvel). We got so full from the cake that I had the fruit tarts and muffins for breakfast the next morning.
