A moo point, basically …

Arbit/ Random

It was my mom’s birthday two weeks ago …

with one comment

… and we took her out to her favourite restaurant and had awesome dumplings and clay-pot rice. I taught her (tried to teach her) how to eat stuff using chopsticks. Her enthusiasm lasted for a full ten minutes before she decided to revert back to good ol’ fork-and-spoon. She commented that she now knew how these oriental folks managed to stay so fit and slim.

We had asked the maître d’ to bring her a cake towards the end, but the ass _forgot_. Thankfully, my sis pointed this out to me just as dinner was coming to an end. As a backup, we gave her a brownie surprise with chocolate sauce and candles, accompanied with a few waiters singing ‘Happy Birthday …’ in perfect unison. Arbitrary patrons (who I suspect were a wee bit tipsy) cheered and wished her good luck. It was tough to guess whether my mom was happy or embarassed – I think it was both.

My mom said that this was the first time anyone got her a cake,or gave her a surprise on her birthday. She turned fifty that day.

For the first time I can recall, I was truly left speechless.
