Celebrating their birthdays

My parents' birthdays are just a day apart being my mum is a day older than my dad.

We usually celebrate their English birthdays since their Chinese birthdays fall on the 7th and 8th of the lunar new year.

Every year I would make a call to them, together with the kids and hubby, we wish them a big Happy Birthday. So no exception this year. But this year, my siblings and I decided to treat them to a birthday dinner.

We agreed on having the dinner in The Airbox Cafe, Aeroville Commercial Centre Park. Mum's birthday was last Sunday so we had the dinner that night.

Aglio olio (RM20)

We did not know how big the portion was so we agreed to order 3 platters to share first. However hubby had this aglio olio spaghetti with bacons for the kids. Too peppery for the kid's taste but it was nice.

Our first platter to be on our table was this chicken platter. From spicy to cheesy and deep fried, everyone enjoyed every pieces of the chicken to the last bite.

However the pork platter was not so nice being the prata too dry. The sweet sauce pork ribs were alright but everyone did agreed that it was not all nice. For such price we would rather had 2 platters of the chicken.

Pork platter (RM118)

On the other hand, I being a seafood lover, loved this seafood platter. No complaint about this platter other that the deep fried calamari was slightly salty to my liking.

Overall the three platters were adequate for 12 of us. It was a nice dinner in The Airbox. The ambience was just nice with no loud music blasting at the back and we were able to talk without shouting. And importantly, mum and dad enjoyed the company and food. Happy birthday, mum and dad! Wish you many years of good health, happiness and longevity.
