My Birthday Celebration!

Don't forget that my international beauty giveaway is going on right now, as part of my birthday celebration!

Also, I just want to give a big Thank You again to everybody who have been visiting and commenting on my blog. I have been very busy with my life in the real world, but I plan to dedicate this coming weekend to visit all of the blogs that have their links posted in the comment boxes. I'm always very curious to learn about who my visitors are, where they're from, their interests, etc.! :-)

Yesterday, 4/23, was my birthday! My wonderful husband took me out to dinner at Sushi Ota. The spacious restaurant was completely filled up within five minutes after we had sat down at 5:30 PM, which was when they opened for dinner, and this is a common occurrence. In fact, Sean made reservation for us over a month prior.

My meal looks small, but it was very filling because it was balanced, I think. Anyhow, I could not get over how fresh everything was; the food was amazing! I am definitely coming back.


Afterward, we went to Downtown San Diego for desserts at Extraordinary Desserts and had a great night out. Sean wanted to bake me a cake, but we were so exhausted by the time we got the boys ready for my cousin, who kindly volunteered to babysit.

Extraordinary Desserts is an amazing restaurant that specializes in desserts only! It also has an extensive tea and wine menu. We had Japanese sencha (a Japanese green tea), Apple Crostata (an apple pastry) that was served with chocolate honeycomb ice-cream, and a Creme Brulee Bun (creme brulee baked inside of a bun!).


I am so grateful to be living in one of the most beautiful cities in America, where everything is within reach.



How has your week been? I hope that everything is going great! Please feel free to include a link to your blog, too, if you have one! :-)
