Hey ! I’m Back !
I’m so sorry I went missing for so long, but everyone needs a small break from time to time, especially with blogging I think ! So don’t worry if I haven’t answered to comments and read your posts yet : that’s a work in progress (someday I’ll be as organized as a “real” blogger I swear).
So, as many of you know since I mentioned it in my Birthday Break post, it was my birthday last week ! Since the 16th of June I am now 25 years old. Thank you everyone by the way for all your kind messages and comments, that’s really sweet of you.
I know a lot of people seem to expect me to feel old and maybe depressed because of reaching that number, but honestly I feel like the same adult-ish student I was 7 days ago. I guess it depends on your personality, I know one of my best friends is so scared of getting old, she hates the fact that she already turned 25. And i’m just like “meh, i’ll just turn on my computer and procrastinate/run away from my responsibilities… as usual.”
So, as I told you, for lunch we went to a Japanese restaurant named Happa Tei, that offered different kind of dishes such as Takoyaki (These are basically octopus balls, seasoned with chives, bonito flakes, parsley and a special sauce) and Okonomiyaki (an “omelette” with a lots of cabbage, meat, chives, bonito flakes, and Japanese mayo).
I swear, it looked waaay bigger in real life !
I forgot to take a picture of the restaurant itself sorry, i’ll show it to you later on Instagram ! But damn look at their menu, it’s the cutest I’ve ever seen :
Since it was my birthday, I wanted to wear this cute pink dress, here is my outfit :
For the evening, I decided to book the first floor of a bar, and invited my friends there. The bar is literally right across the street, perfect location ! It’s called “L’Appart”, which means “The Flat”, inside it looks like an abandoned old house, that was really cool.
Here’s me and my best friend, Johanna.
(for the evening I wore the same dress as the pink one, but in baby blue !)
Also a two friends of mine brought their cute Shiba Inu dog called Aiko !
It was so funny, since my coin purse is actually shaped as a Shiba (more precisely as the shiba known as the “Doge” meme, if you’re enough of an “internet meme lord”, you might already now this).
And OF COURSE : there was a cake !
I made it myself, even though my friends bought another cake for me, because I kinda love baking (especially when it involves a special occasion or theme), and I wanted to try to make a really cute cake.
The result is… I did my best.
This is a vanilla sponge cake, with a caramel fudge bottom layer, a caramel vanilla cream on top, and white chocolate letters. I tried to follow a basic sponge cake recipe, and ended up improvising a bit much to rectify some mistakes … but everyone seemed very pleased with the taste, so I was happy too ! ?
In the end even though I took my camera with me, we didn’t take many pictures at all ! But maybe that means that we were just having too much fun to care about taking pictures ?
I don’t want to make this post too long, so I’ll make separate posts for my birthday presents, and for the food party we had on Sunday ! (don’t worry, I won’t keep you in suspense for too long).
How do you celebrate your own birthday?
