Princess' birthday lunch

Yes. My eldest is turning 10 today!! The 1st double digit!


On Sunday afternoon, we went to Swee Garden in Jalan Mendu for an early birthday lunch.  My parents' treat for their special granddaughter.


It was our first time to Swee Garden and I heard from dad (who has been here few times) that the food was good.

It was not hard to spot the restaurant. Facing the main road and its signboard is blue in colour.

Sorry, I could not take a better shot of the restaurant because I were holding on to a sleeping child. Hard to do much with a child in your arms.

Thank goodness that the restaurant is all air-conditioned. We had been under the sun the whole morning that Sunday as Jan and Jay joined a colouring competition in Batu Kawah Carnival. So, it was a joy to sit and dine in a cooler space.

And here came the food. I only took photos of few dishes. 

Salt & pepper prawns

Roasted chicken

Bittergourd with egg

Her special birthday request. Deep-fried pork trotter aka crispy pata!


However this crispy pata has a different twist to it. They added Thai sweet & spicy sauce at the bottom. The sauce was actually good with the dry crispy pata.


After our delightful lunch, we had a little celebration by singing birthday song and cake blowing and cutting. 

A pretty pink cake for my princess.


Happy 10th birthday, Princess Jan. You will always be our princess in our hearts. 

I couldn't believe that maybe in 8 years time, she would be leaving the house for college. Sob! Please, someone hand me a tissue, quick!
