China town before the birthday

Yesterday afterwork I ate out with my best friend. We went to the Chinatown - the biggest Chinatown in the world (outside of China, of course XD), they say.

(Now it's time of Chinese New Year, the decorations were nice. And it's Friday evening so there were many people even in the evening.)

We went to the restaurant where we can enjoy Dim Sum. This is the restaurant we have often gone before, but recently we have not, this was the first visit in ... maybe 5 years. Dim Sum is the style the various food are served as small bite-sized on small plate or baskets thus we can enjoy many kinds of food with cups of Chinese tea. Most of food are unique (not served in the ordinary Chinese restaurants) and it's good to enjoy them after many years. Though we found that we were not young enough to enjoy the food as much as we have wanted!! XD

And it was the day before my birthday. My friend set a surprise for me. She brought a nice cake to the restaurant (I didn't know it) and they served it at the end of our supper!

(This is clearly NOT Chinese!)

After leaving this Chinese restaurant we went to some cafe for coffee and chatting. It was a nice evening. And I thought I was really, really fortunate to have a nice friend!
