Saturday was my birthday, and as much as I love celebrating it, I hadn’t had a chance to arrange anything before the Friday afternoon because work has been so busy (and because I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do).
I ended up staying at my sister’s house on Friday night as we got home late from the African Fashion Week swimwear show (more on this in another post), so I was woken up quite early by Gary, my sister and my niece. The day started off with going to watch my niece at her second swimming lesson (which was totally cute). And it continued on at a relaxed pace with pancakes for a late breakfast when we got home. Then it was off to the small celebration I had arranged at Cup restaurant at Morningside Shopping Centre. To say this is the ultimate eatery for my sweet tooth is an understatement!
I started off with a summer berry and vanilla milkshake. I then had a look through their menu and convinced a few of my guests to share some items off the menu… We had a giant red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing (below). We had a chocolate and marshmallow pizza slice which was basically a choc-chip cookie with marshmallow pieces that was cut in the shape of a pizza slice. We had bar-one cheesecake. We had baked cheesecake. And we had tea! Don’t forget the tea! And don’t forget the glass of water that was consumed after everything to cancel any fatty sugar that was eaten!
I love the mix-match of dining chairs. I love the cute little aprons the waitresses wore. I love that you can buy sugar spoons with mini teacups or teapots on the top (yes, I’m going to buy one or two). I love that it’s an undiscovered gem (it was so quiet). And I love that I’ve found my new place for afternoon tea and cake.
I was truly spoiled by my loved ones and friends. I got a pink iPig from Gary. I got two belts from my sister. And then I got flowers and vouchers and a teacup and chocolates and sweets and and and… Thanks to everyone who made me feel special!
