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!

I love Chin Chin chicken rice which is near there too, it’s amazing

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!
posted on December 10, 2008 at 3:10 pm
True! At least the flight will be shorter too.. it’s nice to be a bit closer to SG now 🙂

Well a 60th birthday means something special needs to be done, I figure! 😛

What a lovely surprise for your mom!!! I do surprise visits once in awhile and it’s hard to keep :X with anticipation building! The food at Gunthers looks really yummy!!!!!
Hehhehe true, esp since I’m a blabbermouth. It was painful having to keep the secret, haha!

posted on December 10, 2008 at 11:55 pm
Don’t be… I got the book a YEAR ago and just kept it waiting for her birthday, heh!! And I also gave her this glass photo frame that I kept for a year too. I like to hoard my presents 😉

Happy Birthday to your Mom!
You’re such a sweet daughter, I love that book you gave your Mom!
Your parents are lucky to have you as a daughter, and you are lucky to have them as your parents 🙂

Thanks hon! It’s so good to be back home 🙂

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!

Re: Well done sweetie
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?

I’m sorry this come alil late but well babe, i can see that life’s been good to you 🙂
Have fun for me too @ Shanghai & HKG ya?
Merry Blessed christmas!
