April is a very special month in our family, it's a month of Birthdays. Mine's on the 2nd, Dad's on the 6th and Mom's on the 10th.
To celebrate their birthday, dad took us out to Rasa Sayang, Batu Ferringhi for dinner. He was given a discount card and he suggested that we should go there and indulge in some nice food. As the evening is still early, we took a scroll around the garden and have a few family photos.

You can see here, my parents are full of humor. Getting near their retirement, they are still happy and keeping up quite well.
55-years young, still going strong
We spent most of our time busy with our own work, and the last time I remember taking a family photo is during my Convocation 2 years ago! Hm...should we actually come out 2gether more often? Not counting the photo taken during CNY lah, those are like...candid/group shots only.
After hunting around a few restaurants, we decided to dine at the Spice Garden Cafe. On Saturdays, they are having Seafood Buffet. The place is full with people and there are endless variety of delicacies to choose from. There are Lobster, fresh oyster, fresh mussel, fresh tuna, salmon and eel, crab, blue cheese, lamb satay, abalone, jelly fish, octopus, scallop, fish roe, sushi, apricot custard, chocolate dessert and of coz, some tomato juice with Tabasco for Irene. Dad ordered 2 cups of coffee and took so much that at the end, we find that their sky juice tastes the best.
Since I don't give them anything after I start working, I offer to pay the bill. It's not surprising that the bill came up to RM660 even after a 20% discount. After the meal, we wandered around and I showed them the garden that me and Irene found suitable for garden events. Didn't take any photo of the place as it's too dark.
Before we left the place, everyone visited the toilet just to clear the gas and excess liquid from our body system. Just by looking at the laughter of my parents and girlfriend, makes every Ringgit I spent worth it.
