We took Baby Brother to Delicious to celebrate his 46th birthday. For once we managed to take him somewhere nice instead of the normal coffee-shop-style vegetarian restaurant. (That is due to his dietary preference which restricted our choice of venues for meals.)

After a delicious dinner we proceeded to order dessert. We were so kiasu that we ordered 3 different types of cakes for him - Coconut Cake, Macadamia Cheesecake and Peach Frangipane with Vanilla Ice-Cream.

We then asked him to make a face and this was the result.
After that he couldn't hold back his laughter.
Then he made a comment. Couldn't remember what he said.
Then he laughed again.
I love my Baby Brother and I love to see him laugh even more. I think he needs more exposure to both his siao sisters to bring more laughter into his life.

Finally we had afogato to end the wonderful meal.
I hope you enjoyed yourself, Raymond! I did. And here's a Hokkien blessing for you that's worthy of our Mom.
Sin Ku Eong Eong. Choot Jip Peng Aun. Kee Tar Loh Ooi Too Tio Ho Kooi Jin.
Literal Translation: Body strong, strong. Safe going out and coming in. Everywhere you go, you meet people who will bless you.
Happy birthday, Baby Brother! We love you.
