happy birthday.

on saturday night, we went out for my brother's 27th birthday, to our favourite restaurant to go to as a family, and that's tropika. Featuring malaysian fare, i think it is a probably the best kept secret in asian cuisine, because besides japanese (and of course filipino), it's my favourite. come check it out sometime and have the 'crab' and the 'beans' -- i don't know the proper terms for the dishes.

generally we go out as a 'family' on our birthdays, and this was the first time that my dad had brought linda, his girlfriend to the event. i thought that it would be awkward, but even though she is very shy, she's a very sweet lady and definitely seems to make my dad smile, which is the most important thing.
