    So glad it went well! What an amazing surprise for your mum and dad!! And your gift is gorgeous.

    Holy crap, ALL the food looks amazing! I want to try every single thing. The potato crisp looks most skillful.

    i’ve passed by Gunther’s many times, because it’s near my favourite beef noodles stall. But i never knew it sat so little. Food looks great though!

    Such a lovely surprise for your mum (and dad too I’m thinking!). Just think, when you’re in Shanghai it’s even cheaper for you to surprise them like that! :o)

    And the food… wow… I’ve never even been inside a restaurant that fancy!

    Well done sweetie

    I love how you describe the surprise appearance to your mum and dad’s house, so sweet, cute and fun! I can imagine how happy your parents must be!
    Man the restaurants looks good in pure French tradition (except for the name…). Frisee aux lardons is my fave salad! And the cake in the shape of a bell is called Cannele (with an accent on the last e) and is flavoured with Grand Marnier. It’s also my fave cos like you said it’s crunchy on the outside and moist in the inside.
    For the special book, how many pages did you fill out with pics and text? That is had work!
    Happy Bday Mrs Chua! You can be very proud of your daughter, such a nice and thoughtful young lady!
    She will definitelybe missed here 🙁
    Oh hon, shw me more pics of baby Elliot and how big he is. Arthur keeps gaining 1.2 kg a week… 4.5kg now! So heavy!

      It was so much fun! But man keeping a secret was so hard 😉 The book was quite thick, it took me aaaages to do all the photos and words

      The restaurant was super good.. you should check if out in Aug, I’m sure you’ll like it. The waiter and Gunther were so sweet 🙂

      You should add Amanda ‘cos she has lots of elliot pics! I think he is about 6+kg now?
